AAA Cards Game #91 – 3rd Birthday Blog Hop

Hi! I’m happy to be here today with a post for AAA Cards’ big blog hop and Game #91 – 3rd Birthday.

We have a treasure hunt going on! The idea is that each of the design team members and guest designers have placed a given number somewhere within our individual birthday blog posts. The players (you) will need to find all six DT numbers, total them up and then email your answer to aaacardchallenge@gmail.com.

 

We’ve got lots of great sponsors for our celebration.

AAA Cards is a bi-weekly challenge blog for Clean and Simple (CAS) Cards. Unless otherwise stated in the blog post for a particular challenge only players who submit cards will be eligible to be a winner.

Here’s my card using Happy Little Stampers Mix Mash.

I made six of these cards, in a variety of colors.

My question:

There are lots of different perspectives on CAS (Clean and Simple) cards and what “white space” means.  For a prize package of the ARTplorations “Some Birds” and the Happy Little Stampers’ Big Bold Numbers stamp set,
can you tell me what AAA Cards’ definition of “White Space” is?

I hope that you are inspired to play along.

Here’s the order of the blog hop:

Make sure you stop by AAA Cards and visit all of the design team members’ blogs.

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
Melissa

Happy Little Stampers May 2017 Mixed Media Challenge – Splats

Hi! I’m very happy to be here with you today with a card for Happy Little Stampers May Mixed Media Challenge.

Our  challenge:

img_5926_edited-1
img_5928_edited-1     img_5936_edited-1
 I used a stamp from Happy Little Stampers’ Doodle Flowers. I also created a small, homemade, fussy cut stencil using the same flower in this set. I used some smooshed Brusho Crystal Colors to create a background paper.

Doodled Flowers

img_5938_edited-1Today’s card is yet another one that the flowers turned out in a way that reminds me of a book from my childhood. The book is entitled Andy Pandy – in the country.

Have you read this before? I’ll bet some of my U.K. friends have. I love it. 🙂 I’d show you some more photos of it, but my copy is in long-term storage in Albuquerque and I’m in Germany now. 😦 You never know what you’ll miss when you put things into storage! I should be getting those things back soon, though. 🙂img_5935_edited-1

Anyhow, I used the negative spaces of some fussy cut flowers which I used of on this card to make a stencil. I stenciled embossing paste through the homemade stencil three times.img_5932_edited-1 After the paste dried, I stamped the flowers on top of the paste. I added some SPLATS of red with a paint brush, some enamel dots and the sentiment strip.img_5929_edited-1 The red splats on this card especially remind me of an illustration of Looby Loo and some red poppies. I’d love to see that page, so if you have a copy and want to email it to me please do!

  So! I hope that you have enjoyed seeing my bright flowery card on what might be a gray day in you part of the world? Are you excited to join in with our Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media challenge?!

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,
