Enjoy Golfing today!

Mojo Monday 392


Love the sketch this week at  Mojo Monday 392! I'm taking a short break from flowers this week (or just today) for a more masculine card. (Not that women don't enjoy golf) but this is for my husband's friend/golfing partner's birthday. And yes, he does enjoy golf very much. The golf card and bag are from memory box, and the sentiment is from Verve's "Small Packages" set vs-0224.

Easter Cherry Blossoms Blessings TCC32



There are so many possibilities with the beautiful inspiration photo at The Card Concept this week! Easter is near so I wanted to show the cracked egg in a different way. I used Spellbinder s Ric Rac Scalloped Border die to display the blessings inside the egg and to say that spring is here! (for some of us). I die cut out of watercolor paper the Sizzlits Cherry Blossom branch and flowers and colored with Distress Inks, markers and stains in the colors in the inspiration photo.
We hope you will join us and add your creation to the gallery at The Card Concept!

Happy Easter AAA#36

Easter Colors with a touch of Glitter


Easter colors are sweet and fun and bring hope for new beginnings. I want to be in a field filled with flowers right now but that's not happening. So, I've used a small flower stamp and sentiment from Verve's 'Egg-stra Special' set today. I stamped the flower in Hero Arts 'cup o' joe ink and stamped the image (as you can see) many times. I then colored them with copic markers in the soft colors. I added  turquoise stickles to the centers on the panel and filled in the background with a light green copic marker. The bunny is an impression obsession stamp.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOUR EASTER COLORS CREATION AT AAA CARDS !

Thinking of You TCC30

Thinking of You



So sweet and lovely the vase of flowers are in The Card Concept inspiration photo! For Classy and Elegant this week I chose some feminine papers by Anna Griffin with the soft pretty colors of the photo. Mine are an antique wall paper look and the inspiration is fresh and new. The flower is punched from the same bg paper and sponged on the edges with SU Raspberry Ripple ink.

Be inspired by the lovely photo and check out what the design team has to inspire as well!

Rain AAA#34

Rain/Watercolor




This week at AAA Cards we want to do a rain dance to bring on Spring and warmer weather and flowers! For my card I used a stencil and Distress Stain in tumbled glass to create the look of a down pour. The Magenta wood stamp "Tall Solid Flowers" was inked up with DI peeled paint, spiced marmalade and wild honey and spritzed with water. I added dots/rain drops along the stems with Stickles "waterfall". 
Come join us and upload your CAS rain/watercolor to the gallery at AAA Cards!
