AAA Cards Game #124 – Imagine

Hi! I’m back with a fun new challenge for AAA Cards.

 

Special tips for competing (and being eligible to win) in this game:

  1. As always, we’re looking for Clean and Simple (CAS) greeting cards, BUT for this game please make sure to use the theme of “imagination” of your card front.
  2. As always and for all of our games our definition of Clean and Simple means that white space should not be patterned, embossed or textured.

Our super sponsor:

Winnie & Walter, LLC

Here’s my card. I was inspired by this game’s graphic and the theme “imagine.”

 

I’ve also been inspired by the flowers in my garden.

  I’ll miss my garden and look forward to the blooms next spring. For now I’ll enjoy my garden until the first frost and will have to imagine what it will look like next year.

I hope that you enjoyed visiting today and I hope that you’ve been inspired to play along.

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
Melissa

AAA Cards Game #116 – 4th Birthday

Hello and welcome! I’m here with a birthday celebration for AAA Cards.

If you are participating in our blog hop then should have landed here from Maaike’s blog.

 

Check out our fabulous set of generous sponsors.

Thank you to all our wonderful sponsors.

Special tips for competing (and being eligible to win) in this game:

  1. As always, we’re looking for Clean and Simple (CAS) greeting cards.
  2. As always and for all of our games our definition of Clean and Simple means that white space should not be patterned, embossed or textured.

Here’s my birthday card using some of one of sponsor’s, STAMPlorations, products.

 

I recycled a bird mask for this card. I used it on 2 other cards that you have seen here before.

I love finding interesting ways to recycle masks. I wanted to increase the number of male-friendly cards in my stash and the bird seemed to fit the bill.

I simply added a die cut panel to the card base and adhered the ombré die cut ‘birthday’ for the bird to perch on. I stamped ‘happy’ and was finished.

I hope that you enjoyed visiting today and hope that you’ve been inspired to join in the birthday bash.

AAA Cards Game #114: Tic Tac Toe

Hi! I’m back with a fun new challenge for AAA Cards.

  2. As always and for all of our games our definition of Clean and Simple means that white space should not be patterned, embossed or textured in any way at all.

Here’s my one-layer card. I used GOLD, ONE-LAYER and MASKING. (I also used a colored cardbase and blue.) Anyhow, besides “flowers” and “watercolors” I think that I filled every other square. Which, of course, was not the challenge, but it was fun to see how many of the boxes I could tic!

I’ve been trying to NOT use flowers on ALL of my cards. I seem to use flowers and butterflies a lot.I’d like to have some masculine cards in my stash. What do you think? I really wanted to fit some water-colored flowers on in the background before stenciling, but I resisted. 🙂

I used STAMPlorations Chevron Crazy – ARTplorations Stencil and a die from the For the Birds die set.

I also used the “Be Strong” stamp from the Typografia in Faith collection.

 

Be sure to stop by the AAA Cards challenge blog to enjoy my teammate’s super Clean and Simple Cards.

I hope that you enjoyed visiting today and I hope that you’ve been inspired to play along.

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
