AAA Cards Game #110 – Ombre

Hi! I’m back with a fun Clean and Simple Card today for AAA Cards Game #110.

Special tips for competing (and being eligible to win) in this game:

  1. As always, we’re looking for Clean and Simple (CAS) cards, BUT for this game please feature an Ombre theme as the main and focal point.
  2. As always and for all of our games our definition of  Clean and Simple means that white space should not be patterned, embossed or textured.

Our sponsor, and one of our Guest Designer’s, for this game is the fabulous Kylie of Happy Little Stampers.

Kylie is offering a $20 gift certificate to the winner of this challenge.

Our other super Guest Designer is Wei of craftworldofwei.

Here’s my one-layer card using HLS’ Doodled Flowers and Whimsical Friends.

Don’t the 3 birds fit nicely on that fun elephant’s back?

 I am always happy to have visitors and love reading your comments. I hope that you’ve been inspired to play along.

Be sure to stop by the AAA Cards challenge blog to enjoy Kylie’s, Wei’s and my teammate’s Clean and Simple Greeting Cards.

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
Melissa

Hi! I’m happy to be here with you today for  Happy Little Stampers’ May Case the Designer Challenge.


The winner will receive a $15 (Australian) gift certificate from Happy Little Stampers.
I am excited to be your designer for May!
Here’s my card:IMG_3597_edited-1
I used a die from HLS Butterfly Dies and a sentiment from Thinking of You.
I’d like to play this card along at Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #228-#229,at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday’s Anything Goes, and FUSION-Sweet Orange Blossoms.   My card reminds me of both the Sketch and the Inspiration photo. Don’t you think? And I’d like to play at The Card Concept #54 {Spring Flowers} (CAS Mixed Media).

I used a stencil and stenciled white embossing paste onto the black card stock.

IMG_3607_edited-1
I added a small amount of red water color paint to the blooms. (This butterfly is going to flutter over to my conservatory.) IMG_3604_edited-1
I also added a water colored die cut butterfly.IMG_3606_edited-1
Lastly, I stamped the “Thanks” in embossing ink and then I heat embossed in white embossing powder. I’d like to play this along at CAS Mix Up and at Love to Create Challenge 9 Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes. I’d also like to share this over st Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday April 2016: Flowers.
