AAA Cards Challenge #47: Spectacular Embossing & an Exciting Announcement

Well Hello! Thanks for visiting today. I’m so excited to have you here because I have a fun announcement to share with you. With this post, I have the honor & privilege of joining the ladies at AAA Cards as one of 3 new members of the AAA Cards Design Team!

AAA new DTThis week’s Challenge#47 is Spectacular Embossing.

Here’s my card:

IMG_0714cropsquare  I am truly “Giving Thanks” to the ladies at AAA Cards for inviting me to be part of their team! I had fun with this card and used a couple of my favorite techniques, sponging/ink-blending and emboss resist. I learned these techniques from Laura Bassen in her “Craftsy” class.

After stamping my image in VersaMark and heat embossing with clear embossing powder, I did some ink blending on top of the butterfly. I really enjoy using this stamp! The sentiment if from PTI’s Scripted stamp set. I highly recommend this set.

Die Cut Kissing Recycle -Lots of Tickets

Hi! My kids and I are headed out to the train station to get on a 4 o’clock train to meet my husband; we need to get our tickets to Vaihingen. He’s picking us up and then we’re going to see the movie “War Room”. We’ll need to pick up our tickets for the 6 o’clock showing of the movie too! I’m really looking forward to it. Lots of tickets in this post.

This post is a bit different because I’m not really sharing a card in it. Today, I have a ticket bookmark and a ticket tag to share with you.

This week Betsy, over at PTI’s MIM, used a stamp kissing technique but changed it up a bit by using a stamp and a die cut instead of two stamps. I had This technique was fun and I think I’ll be trying it again very soon. Here’s the post with the card I made for MIM.

 I did a test run with the 2 PTI products I wanted to use, the Bloomers stamp set, and the Heart cover Plate die.

The process……

IMG_0599editedIMG_0597edited

Here’s the inked up die cut which I recycled for the bookmark and tag.

IMG_0601edited

I stamped the front side with “Many Blessings” from PTI’S Scripted Stamp Set. I also decorated the back of the tag and made a space to write on. I made my own tickets but using a circle punch to chomp off the corners of the tickets and then I drew the lines on free-hand.

I added some Glossy Accents to the heart negatives on the bookmark. The sentiment is from PTI’s Bibliophile stamp set.
