AAA #49 Word Play – use mostly words

 I’m happy to be here with you today with a post for AAA Cards Challenge #49: Word Play -use mostly words as a member of the AAA Cards Design Team.

I wanted my card to appear as if someone had written on a steamy/rainy window with their finger.

 The stamps are from SU’s “Another Thank You” stamp set.

I used an emboss-resist technique, some water-color smooshing, some Glossy Accents and silver sequins to achieve this look. I double stamped and embossed the “Thank You” so that it looks like the window started to steam back up.

I hope that you are inspired to play along. Make sure you stop by AAA Cards and visit all of the design team members blogs.

Die Cut Kissing Recycle -Lots of Tickets

Hi! My kids and I are headed out to the train station to get on a 4 o’clock train to meet my husband; we need to get our tickets to Vaihingen. He’s picking us up and then we’re going to see the movie “War Room”. We’ll need to pick up our tickets for the 6 o’clock showing of the movie too! I’m really looking forward to it. Lots of tickets in this post.

This post is a bit different because I’m not really sharing a card in it. Today, I have a ticket bookmark and a ticket tag to share with you.

This week Betsy, over at PTI’s MIM, used a stamp kissing technique but changed it up a bit by using a stamp and a die cut instead of two stamps. I had This technique was fun and I think I’ll be trying it again very soon. Here’s the post with the card I made for MIM.

 I did a test run with the 2 PTI products I wanted to use, the Bloomers stamp set, and the Heart cover Plate die.

The process……

Here’s the inked up die cut which I recycled for the bookmark and tag.

IMG_0601edited

I stamped the front side with “Many Blessings” from PTI’S Scripted Stamp Set. I also decorated the back of the tag and made a space to write on. I made my own tickets but using a circle punch to chomp off the corners of the tickets and then I drew the lines on free-hand.

I added some Glossy Accents to the heart negatives on the bookmark. The sentiment is from PTI’s Bibliophile stamp set.
