It's a Birthday Celebration at AAA Cards!



It's time for another challenge at AAA Cards and it's our 3rd birthday celebration so there are prizes.


We are having a treasure hunt, so sure to stop by everyone's blog and look for a number until you find all 6, total them up and email your total to aaacardchallenge@gmail.com 

here is the bloghop order in case you get lost 



To make my birthday card I started with a top folding card base and a birthday set by Concord & 9th, Eat Cake & Celebrate along with the Eat Cake and Celebrate Dies. I stamped the image with Memento ink and colored it with Copic Markers BG23, BG13, E23 and E25. The grunge in the background is also by Concord & 9th, from the set Hello Lovely. A one layer card with a big statement to wish AAA Cards a Happy 3rd birthday! 

For a chance to win a £10 voucher to the Digi Stamp Boutique, answer the following question. What is your favorite occasion to make handmade cards for? I love making Christmas cards, but my favorite occasion is birthdays. Birthday cards give you so many design options depending on who you are sending it to, masculine, floral, humorous, punny, cartoony and the list goes on.

A huge thank you to all of our sponsors for donating the prizes.

Class of 2017



It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS, our sponsor for this challenge is Create A Smile Stamps with a £15 to their store.


This challenge fell at the right time as we are headed to our nephews high school graduation and I needed a card.
To make my card, I started with a white top folding card base and a scrap of navy carsick I used for the cap. For the greeting, I used the Double Cut Numbers and Alpha from Concord and 9th. His high scooter colors are navy, red and silver so I used some silver glitter paper from The Ton which is adhesive backed for the inside of the numbers and letters.  I love this glitter paper. 
For the cap I punched out two circles of glitter paper and sandwiched a tassel in-between that I made from silver thread.

My Sweet Petunia and Unity Stamp Co. Collaboration Bloghop



Happy Friday!
We are hopping with the Unity Stamp Company's design team and some special crafters who love the MISTI and Unity Stamps. There is a list of everyone participating below, but you should have reached my blog via Stephanie's blog, if not you will want to head over to My Sweet Petunia and start from the beginning because there are prizes involved for those who leave comments on each blog by Noon CST May 30th. What are the prizes you ask??
Everyone who leaves a comment on all the blogs by the designated time will go into a drawing for 3 prize packs from unity and the winner's choice of an Original or Mini Misti. what a prize package huh??


For my card I used the set Happy Snail Mail. This image was super fun to color. 
To make my card, I used a top folding kraft card base and the Quilted Stitched Spirals cover die and Stitched Rectangle both by Lil' Inker Designs. My ink pad was a little dry and I didn't have a refill so I positioned the stamp on the stitched panel in the Mini Misti to make sure I got a crisp image by over stamping. To color it I used Copic markers BG11, BG23, BG32 and R46 for the snail shell, YR01, Y23, and Y38 or the body, for the grass I used YG23 and YG25, and the mushroom is colored with YR16, YR68, E31, E33, E35 and Y28. 
To make sure the greeting was straight I used the ruler that is in with the Creative Corners, I use this ruler on pretty much every card that has a greeting to help me stamp it straight.


Now it's time to head over to Robyn's blog to see what she has to show you. Be sure to leave comments so you are eligible to win. 

The winners will be posted on both the My Sweet Petunia blog and the Unity blog, be sure to check back to see if you are a winner.

I have no clue why but anytime there is a challenge of Holiday, I make a Christmas card. there are other holidays out there in case you want to make a valentines day card or something..lol
To make this card I started with a white top folding card base and a read panel cut the same size to cover the entire front.  The stamp set I used is Merry Makers by SugarPea Designs. I colored it with Copic markers and added some Nuvo drops and glossy accents to finish it off.

Twice The Love




Today I attended a double baby shower for to sweet mama's that are expecting baby girls next month.  This set Warm Welcome by Lil' Inker Designs makes the perfect baby card.
I started with a top folding card base and a panel cut down on one side with a stitched die. I stamped the floral images using Altenew ink and the cut them out with the Warm Welcome coordinating dies. I added a strip of patterned paper down the side.

Even thought it may be a tad liberal I used this weeks sketch from 
CAS(E) This Sketch


Here's a picture of both cards
