AAA Cards Game #90 – Embossing

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

Our sponsor for this game:

$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.

It’s Crunch Time

10 days! Ten days until the first set of movers come to pack up my family’s household goods for our final (prayerfully) international move. We won’t have our things back with us for 3-6 months.

So. I need to be reminded. The Bible says that God is good all the time. Did you know, that according to the Guinness World Records that, “Although it is impossible to obtain exact figures, there is little doubt that the Bible is the world’s bestselling and most widely distributed book.”

When all around me things seems dark and impossible…….

slide04Also, I’m currently covered with nasty itchy horrid hives from an allergic reaction to, I believe, the hazelnut trees that surround my house. So, I’ve been distracting myself with organizing my craft supplies and doing a little crafting.

I love ink blending, so I incorporated that into my reminder.

slide01There’s still so much left to do, getting ready for an agricultural inspection, separating out what will go in the next smaller shipment (bedding, towels, kitchen supplies etc. – via plane), what we’ll put into our luggage, maybe mail some things to ourselves………etc.slide03so, it is truly…

Chasing Mojo with Sweet Kobylkin – CASEing Ksenija 1

Hi! I’m here Chasing Mojo with Sweet Kobylkin. 🙂 This is a great idea that Ksenija had to help us get back into the creative mode after Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. I’ve been having a lot of fun CASEing multiple cards from those offered up at Sweet Kobylin.

I started by CASEing our hostess, Ksenija’s beautiful offering. I CASEd this card 3 different ways. I’ll share the first one in this post and save the other 2 for later.slide001slide005slide001  Here’s a quick slideshow of the process I used to CASE Ksenija’s card:
