We are pairing up this game with Less is More  from the 8th – 21st July.

There will be one joint winner, but AAA Cards and LIM will each have their own runners up.

Please note the theme is one layer

with a colored card base!

Here’s my card using Happy Little Stampers’ Doodled Flowers and Butterfly Dies . I made my own butterfly stencil using the HLS butterfly die.

It could be you!

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 stamped in embossing ink, heat embossed in white and colored with watercolor pencils.

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. AAA Cards has our own very specific definition! 🙂  For a prize package of the ARTplorations “Some Birds” and the Happy Little Stampers’ Big Bold Numbers stamp set, please 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,

Happy Little Stampers Watercolor Challenge – February 2017 – Dies

Hello! I’m very excited to be here with you for our second HLS Watercolor Challenge.

As always at Happy Little Stampers’ challenges……..we have a prize for you!

We would like to extend a huge welcome to our Guest Designer, Ingrid!

Here’s my card:

img_4005_edited-1

I used the emboss-resist technique to create a panel with heart stamps, clear embossing powder and….

Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 24-Color Painting Set

Then, I did some die-cutting with a heart die and then inlaid some CUTplorations ‘hugs’ word dies. I matted the hearty, huggy heart by attaching it with foam tape to a white square of cardstock. The white embossed hearts make me think of the “Os” in “XOXO”. So this is a “hugs & kisses” hearty card. Don’t you think?

img_4015_edited-1Next, I made another rainbow panel to frame the white panel and attached the entire thing to a white square card base.

I

the finished card with it!

What do you think? Is this a Cleaned and Layered card? I’d like to play along at The Card Concept #66: Love & Romance.

Lots of white…… hugs, hearts, the card and a rainbow heart and panel peeking out?! Oooo. I like it!

img_4013_edited-1My teammates and I are excited to begin this new year with a fun new monthly challenge and by the number of you who played along last month, we think that you will enjoy it too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,
