AAA Cards Game #101 – Inspired by a Film

I’m very happy to be back with you for Game #101.

Thank you to our sponsor, Winnie & Walter.
Prize: $25 gift certificate
Winnie & Walter, LLCAAA Cards is a challenge blog for
Clean and Simple (CAS) Cards.
Unless otherwise stated in the challenge blog post for a specific challenge only players who submit
cards
will be eligible to be a winner.

Here is my card, using W & W’s “So Tweet.”

Before you scroll down and look to see the answer, want to take a guess at what film inspired my card?

I’ll give you a little help. I have 2 hints for you.

  1. Scroll back up, count the birds. The number of birds represents the number of the very important main characters in the film.

2. Okay, now what is one of the things that birds are best known for doing?

Here’s a photo hint:

Okay, now scroll past the next photo (showing the inside of the card).My card was inspired by The Sound of Music. Image result for sound of music movie

Can you see how I identified the various children?Why does the first child have a letter?

Now, for you big “Sound of Music” fans, what is the name of child/bird to which the balloon belongs? Do you remember their introduction scene and the following conversation with Maria?

Why would I give one particular child a balloon and why would I choose to make it pink in particular?

I really like how this card turned out. I hope that you are inspired to play along.

AAA Cards Game #90 – Embossing

Hi! I’m happy to be here today for AAA Cards Game #90 – Embossing.

Our sponsor for this game:

Picture

$15 gift certificate

We’ll pick a top winner and some runners-up.
It could be you!

I have 2 cards to share with you today.

 Here’s card #1: This is the type of Clean and Simple (CAS) card that meets of AAA Cards CAS definition.
Lots of “white space” space (any color) WITHOUT ANY texture or pattern.
I did some stenciling, creative stamping, fussy cutting, heat embossing and dry embossing to make the card.
Here’s card #2. This card is Clean and Simple, BUT it does not meet AAA Cards’ requirements for “white space” because of the all over embossing.

img_5943_edited-1If I had dry embossed only part of the card, maybe the edges of the card or simply the center panel, it would meet the AAA Cards’ CAS defintion.

img_5944_edited-1I made the center panel of this card I used some liquid masking medium through a stencil
and then did some ink blending over the masked flowers.img_5949_edited-1
 I did some fussy cutting, attached the panel to the middle of the card front and then stamped the sentiment. img_5947_edited-1
Then, I dry embossed the front of the card. I love this card, BUT it DOES NOT meet AAA’s Clean and Simple requirements.
   img_5948_edited-1
Here, once again, is my embossed card which meets AAA’s CAS definition.

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.

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
Melissa
