AAA Cards

Hello!

It is a very cold and wet weekend here so I am playing in my craft room....I wanted to take part in the current AAA Cards Challenge where we are creating CAS cards along the edge.

I used our Banners and Bunting Stencil to create this card:


A little bit of Tumbled Glass distress ink shaded at the top of the card and coloured texture paste over the bunting to give a bit of dimension.  The sentiment is from WPlus9.


I do love this stencil - I often reach for it to finish off a scene or as a focal point on my cards.  You can buy it from our store - www.funkyfossil.co.uk.


I hope you like the card - it was a nice change from a christmas card :)

Feeling Festive

Hello!

I am still working on christmas cards....is it just me or does the clock speed up at this time of year?!  Here are three that I made over the weekend.


I inked up our Holly Wreath stencil a couple of times and added some extra foliage from the Fa La La and Joy stamp sets.  I die cut a circle inside the wreath.  I heat embossed the sentiment in copper and cut it out so that it looks as if it is hanging from the wreath.

I shall link up at Time Out where the theme is Merry and Cheerful.  


I stitched around a die cut frame on this card to highlight the gold embossed sentiment from our Fa La La stamp set.  I shall link up at Simon Wednesday's Challenge where the theme is Traditional Christmas.

Finally I went with black and gold for a dramatic look:


I went over our Simple Scallops stencil with gold glitter paste and added the sentiment.  I shall link up at Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge without the candy cane twist.

Here are the products that I used to make these cards:

AAA Birthday Card Challenge

Hello!

It is time for our next monthly AAA Birthday Card Challenge which, if you are like me, is a welcome excuse to take a break from making christmas cards :)  This month's theme is Balloons and Banners:



I decided to use this opportunity to ink up a few new stencils including Up and Away and Scenic Borders:


I inked up the main hot air balloon in Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilised Amber and added some light pencil shading to add some depth to the colours.  I also used the cloud border to create the sky on this card.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

Here are the stencils that I used which you can buy in store at www.funkyfossil.co.uk:



I shall also link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where Anything Goes.

I hope you like my card!

Blessed

Hello!

I love the current theme at Less is More where we are focusing our designs in a triangle to create our CAS cards....

I masked a triangle on my card front and used our Into the Wild and Birds in Flight stencils to create the following scene:


I used some Jane Davenport washi and a Tim Holtz Ideology sticker.  

I shall also link up at Addicted to CAS where the code word is Blessed and at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where Anything Goes.

These are the stencils that I used:

CAS Christmas

Hello!

I hope that your week is going well :)  I found out about a new challenge this week and wanted to play along.  It is called Day of the Month Card Club and goes live on the 7th of every month.  The challenge uses different celebrations/events as their theme which is a great idea :)  The theme for November has been inspired by 'Look for Circles' day!!

I decided to use my new stencil - Ornamental - for this CAS card as one of the baubles is circular.


I used Nuvo Glacier Paste in Quicksilver on navy cardstock and added a few gems.  The sentiment is from MFT and I simply added a bit of silver mirri card.

Unser Logo zum Mitnehmen! / Our logo to take away!

I shall link up at the current Anything Goes challenge at Simon's Wednesday Challenge and for a third time at Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge where the theme is Tis The Season.

Here is the stencil that I used:

Week in Review

Hello!

Life has been so busy over the past few weeks that I haven't had much time to share some of my cards here on the blog so I have a few pics below....

First up is a card that I have made with our new Swallows stencil:



I used a discarded piece of copy paper that I had used to take excess paint off my brayer as the background and sponged dark blue acrylic paint through the stencil.  I also added a few elements of the micro dots stencil around the edges.  The sentiment is by Stamplorations.  I shall link up at Simon's Monday Challenge where the theme is to recycle it.

Next up is a card that I made for the current challenge at Time Out where the theme is Celebrations (with the optional twist of one layer).  I used the butterflies from our Abstract Beauty stamp set to create the background and combined it with a Concord and 9th butterfly and Mama Elephant sentiment.


Finally, a card that I have made with our new Ornamental stencil and Cosmic Shimmer luna paste.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink


I shall link up at Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge which, this month, is Tis the Season.  

Here are the products that I have used on these cards:

  

                        

They are all available in store at www.funkyfossil.co.uk.

Sponsoring AAA Card Challenge

Hello!

I love the CAS card challenges that AAA Cards set for us and I am delighted to say that I am sponsoring the current challenge:


I decided to use the sweet angel from our Folksy Christmas set and added our sunray stencil behind her.  Using sparkle pens to watercolour the image has given it some shimmer :)




The prize is £15 credit for our store www.funkyfossil.co.uk!

As it is a one layer card I shall also link up at Inkspirational.  

I hope you like the card.  These are the products that I used:


 


Thanks as always for stopping by,
