Autumn Colors AAA Cards #24

Game 24 Autumn Colors

You just can't resist the colors of Autumn! Fall puts on a majestic show of warm, bright and dazzling colors.  I die cut the leaves with impression obesession fall leaves die #DIE030-S and painted them with Twinkling H2Os. The woodgrain background label was colored with gelatos and I blended the colors by rubbing with fingers over the embossed background. Please see Tiffany's video.

I used Lil' inker "Frames & Flowers set #59926173 for the woodgrain label. The sentiment is WPlus9

Painted Poinsettias AAA Cards #23

Game 23 Play with Watercolors

We're having more fun with watercoloring at AAA Cards! I've switched it up from usual Distress inks and an aqua brush. This week I'm  using Twinkling H2Os in spiced pumpkin and olive vine and a paint brush. (Also some old LuminArte in Sunflower)
I first stamped the image in Distress Ink crushed olive onto watercolor paper. I then added a little water to the twinkling H2O containers and painted inside the lines with an actual water brush! So easy! Gold micro beads were added to the poinsettias centers and splatters from the brush in each color.

Happy Fall -AAA Cards #21

Game 21 Fussy Cutting

I do enjoy a bit of fussy cutting sometimes. Just in case you are not familiar with the term 'fussy cutting' it is using scissors to cut out shapes and/or designs in stead of die cuts and punches.

My oak leaf stamp is very old but I love it. I used the rock and roll technique to add the browning edges to the leaves. I first stamped the leaf in the main colors (DI fired brick and crushed olive) and then rolled the stamp around the edges in DI brushed corduroy.

I can't wait to see YOUR fussy cutting in the AAA Cards Gallery!

Mums and Roses TCC #19

There is so much inspiration happening in this week's photo at THE CARD CONCEPT
But it's a color challenge which is taking me away from using fall leaves. My husband will often bring home flowers in fall colors and his favorite ones are red roses and bright yellow mums. 
So of course that's what inspired me to make a mum and roses card.

I've used two different daisy punches from ek success for the mum. The center of the mum and the roses are Impression Obsession's small spiral floral dies and border die. The greenery is memory box "Wildflower Corner die and the sentiment is from Verve "On Occasion" set vs-0193.

Golden Anniversary

Julia's bright and dazzling card is inspiring in so many ways! I needed a fall anniversary card, and so, I've used Verve's "Feel the Sun" set quote stamp as my sunny inspiration along with a Sizzix Bigz "primitive hearts #2" die. The flourish is Impression Obsession "heart and flourish" die. 

Show us how you are inspired by this week's challenge at AAA Cards!
