Guest Design for AAA cards challenge blog

Hello everyone!

As you read it from the title I am so very excited to tell you that I was asked by lovely Jane from AAA cards challenge blog to be their guest design for the Game #72- New to you Technique

This is also my very first time guest designing and I was nervous but totally enjoyed the experience.

When Jane told me the challenge I was so glad since I got some techniques that I haven't tried yet , now was the perfect moment.
I made some cards I admit :) just because I wanted to find the perfect card for this challenge and this was the one I like it the best!

If you wandering what ''the new to me technique'' i used in this card is : embossing with dies!
I always wanted to embossed with dies but since I got just the basic shapes and some words dies and no Sizzix silicone rubber i never try it.
But i recently got this tag and cute floral die cuts from Create a smile and i also saw on You tube that people actually embossed with fun foam and i did it too .
I loved it and now one technique from my To Do list checked :)

For the flowers i colored with Stabilo Markers on watercolor paper and then die cut with Cool Cuts from Create a Smile and arranged them into a beautiful bouquet !
To add a bit of color behind my bouquet and to make the tag pop a bit I inked blended some Teeny Bikini from Simon Says Stamp.
The sentiment is from Create a Smile - Lovely Critters stamp set!  And my card was finished!

  Thank you so much for having me as Guest Design , was such a wonderful experience!
  Thank you for stopping by! Have a lovely day!

Oh Happy Day!

Hello everyone!

Today I wanted to share a card that I made for Gerda Steiner Designs Monthly Challenge using her freebie , which is a cuteness.

For this card I was definitely into autumn mood :) When I saw this image my first thought was that I wanted him sitting into lots of autumn leaves!
But since I don't have and dies that cut autumn leaves I made my own using Create a Smile - Pocket tag die.
The background is made using the smooshing technique on watercolor paper with Stabilo Markers. From the same paper I cut my leaves but I wanted them to be more vibrant so I inked the a bit with orange , red and some green.
The fox is colored with Spectrum Noir Markers but since I don't have orange or red tones I used some brown tones and the with a orange and red pencil I tried to add some details. The trees and the sentiment are from Avery Elle - Woodland Wonders.

And that is my card for today! Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!

Easy ink blending color blocking card

Hello everyone

I want to share a card that I made and was inspired by the challenge on Tic - Tac -Toe Challenge and I used Word Dies - Sparkle- Color blocking.
For my card I masked the portions that I wanted to ink blend and just added my colors creating colr blocking! The pink ink is from Simon Says Stamp - Teeny Bikini and the black one is just a black ink from my stash.
For the word die I used Fancy Hello from Poppy stamps and to add a bit of dimension I cut 2 from white cardstock and adhered to the gold glitter cardstock .
To finish up my card I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and added some foam tape to the panel and adhered to my card base .
Thank you so much for stopping by ! Have a lovely day!

Distress inks Lifting

Hello everyone!

I saw the Distress lifting technique a while ago on Jennifer McGuire YouTube Channel and I wanted to give it a try!
I got the Clustered Leaves cling stamp from Create a Smile and thought that was the perfect time to try the technique.
I inked the panel with Salty Ocean , Mermaid Lagoon , Peacock Feathers  then inked the Clustered Leaves stamp with Versa Mark and embossed with clear embossing powder .

Then I took a brush and with clean water I tried to remove some of the ink, the dried with a paper towel and let it air dry.

I wanted to keep the card simple and just added a sentiment from Avery Elle - Woodland Wonders
Thank you so much for stopping by ! Have a great day!

Hey Landlubber

Hello everyone!

Today I want to share a very cute and fun card with you!
video

This weekend I got my order from Create a Smile and I made this interactive card !
Is my first spinning card that I made , but I found that I easy and very fun too make!


The cute koalas are from the stamp set All hands on deck from Create a Smile and I color them with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers!
For the front panel I stamped the pirate flag with Versamark on kraft but didn't use any embossing powder since I just wanted a ton on ton impression!

 The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I embossed with white WOW embossing powder.
To finish up my card  I added some enamel stickers from Create a Smile and inked blended the interior of my card with High Dive ink from Simon Says Stamp!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

Sending hugs and prayers

Hello everyone!

I have a card that I wanted to share today with you!
The images for this card I colored  some days ago for The daily marker 30 days hosted by Kathy Racoosin and since then I wanted to make this card , but just didnt't turn out how I wanted.
Sometimes when you feel that something doesn't turn out as you want you just walk away from it and come later :) it helped me to see what I didn't like and what I wanted to change to my card!
 And finally I got my card done and I was happy with !

For this card I used Simon Says Stamp - Friendship Blooms which I set that I absolutely love! Those flowers are so pretty and love love the font on this stamp set!
I colored my flowers and leafes using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers .
To add a bit of interest I ink blended a pink and a yellow ink in the background to match with the flowers and to ground everything I added a frame.



To finish up my card I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins, and my card was ready!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!
