Have yourself a very Merry...



Julee has presented a very elegant and versatile sketch this week. I've got loads of cards to make and this sketch has easy -to create- layers. I've used three stamps from Verve's 'O Christmas Tree' set of 15 VS-09-041. I embossed the focal panel with a Lifestyle Crafts "Whimsy" embossing folder. I sponged with Distress Ink forest moss. The wreath is colored with red and green copics.

November16 - 29  #28 INSPIRE - Thanksgiving

Player Guest- Kimberly Wiener 





Our guest designer this week is the fabulous Kimberly Wiener! Kimberly's blog is filled with modern, chic, hip, and very gorgeous designs. Every creation is bright, fresh and very appealing to the eye. She is as sweet as can be as well. We are delighted to have her as guest designer at AAA CARDS  for the two weeks.  

I went dumpster diving for old crafting supplies with this one. The Santa Rosa "Acorns & Wheat" stamp was purchase in the early 90's but I still love it. The K & Company designer paper has seen some years but the print reminds me of turkey feathers. Too beguiling!

Show us how you Give Thanks by adding your card to the AAA Cards gallery!

Christmas Kraft Wreath TCC #23




Kraft products are wonderful for the holidays. Kraft paper wrapped gifts with bright festive bows are beautiful. I've used a recycled Kitchen Papers for dining & Serving product (www.kitchenpapers.com). It's a Reversible Placemat "Tapestry" that has gold tapestry on one side and silver on the other. The Pad of 25 placemats is too pretty to use as a place mat so I die cut the 18.5" by 12.5" into all kinds of paper craft projects. It's great for treat/favor boxes as well.

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.
