AAA Cards Game #115 – Inspired by Nature

Hi! I’m back with a fun Clean and Simple Card today for AAA Cards Game #115.

 

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

  1. As always, we’re looking for Clean and Simple (CAS) cards, BUT for this game please feature an nature theme as the main and focal point.
  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 sponsor for this game is the fabulous Kylie of Happy Little Stampers.

Kylie is offering a $20 gift certificate to the winner of this challenge.

Here’s my nearly one-layer card using HLS’ Doodled Flowers, Butterfly Birthday and a coordinating die.

 I am always happy to have visitors and love reading your comments. I hope that you’ve been inspired to play along.

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

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
Melissa

Happy Little Stampers Watercolor December – Anything Goes

I’m very happy to be back with you for this month’s HLS Watercolor challenge.

This is a sad post for me, as I will be stepping down from Happy Little Stampers after this month. I am so thankful to my teammates and especially Kylie for their friendship and support over the past 2 1/2 years. Ladies, I count myself blessed to be able to call you friends.

 

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

Here’s my card using Doodled Flowers.

I used Kylie’s fun flowers as snowflakes.

Here’s some music for you to enjoy if you’d like:

I heat embossed the flowers and then added blue Brusho crystal color.

I hope that you enjoyed your visit.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Little Stampers Watercolor September – Spritz

Phew! Wow, it’s been a while! International moving and home renovation sure keeps a person busy! I want to extend my thanks to Kylie and my teammates at HLS for extending patience to me while I’ve been away. I’m very happy to be back with you for this month’s HLS Watercolor challenge.

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

Here’s my card using multiple HLS products and Brusho Watercolor Crystals.

To make this card:

  1. I made a stencil with a butterfly die.
  2. Sponged embossing ink through the stencil.
  3. Sprinkled on red Brusho crystals.
  4. Spritzed with water.
  5. Allowed to the water dry, added clear embossing powder & heat embossed.
  6. Watercolored with more yellow and green Brushos.
  7. Stamped the leaves.
  8. Stamped and fussy cut the sentiment.
  9. Die cut, framed and assembled the card with foam tape and snail adhesive.

I’ll make this a quick post so that I can get back to some renovation projects and readying my house for our household goods to be delivered. My family and I are excited (dreading?!) about next week. We said goodbye to our things in Germany last March. We’re expecting our things (20 crates!) to be here on the 6th & 7th.

I hope that you enjoyed your visit.

Thanks for stopping by!
