Card for Challenges!

Hi friends!
I'm here with a quick little post with a spring card for a couple of challenges. I played with an Altenew stamp set Simply Spring along with their liquid marble stencil. I've colored my image with Copics and added a little bit of gel pens to the flower centers for detail... And splattered white and black paint as details. The oval die is by SSS. 

I'd like to enter:

New Challenge at Time Out!


Hi friends!
I'm here with my DT card for our new challenge at Time Out where we are Inspired by Words:

I obviously went with flowers in the garden. :) I used Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Seasonal Blooms (stencil and die from the kit) in creating my card. I've stenciled the image with the three stencils that come in the set, then copic colored them, and then added pencil details. This was a pretty long project but I do like the end result! The background is blue card stock stenciled with a Marianne Design stencil -I think the stencil is supposed to create an ocean but I tried to create a cloudy sky with it. :) Sentiment is from the same Altenew set. 

Make sure to head on over to out challenge blog for more DT inspiration and all the challenge and prize details. Our guest designer this time is Nancy with a beautiful card with several layers -don't miss it or any of the fun!

New Challenge at Time Out!

Hi friends!

It's time for the first Time Out Challenge of 2022... And it is a wonderful one, "In Love"! Time to remember your loved ones, get working on those Valentine's cards or just be in love with whatever that feels suitable -like with stylish shoes as I've been! :) We all know how many ladies are almost obsessed with beautiful shoes, right! I've used a beautiful digital image by our sponsor Alex Syberia. All the challenge and prize details in the challenge blog, simply click HERE! Our winners always get called to guest design for us and this time we have one of my very good friends joining us -Milla from Mustesormi blog. We both live in Finland but there's quite many hours in a train between us... So due to the pandemic we haven't met in more than two years now. :( However we have spent many many fun crafty weekends together, just coloring away, chatting, eating candy and enjoying an occasional drink -Coca Cola for Milla and red wine for me! :) Miss you, Milla! 

My card is very CAS this time -I've simply colored in the image with Copics, added some gems, black heat embossed the sentiment (by Altenew), attached the panel to a card base and called it ready. Hope you like and thanks for popping by!

New Challenge and Micro Blog Hop at AAA Birthday!


Hi friends!

The new challenge at AAA Birthday for January 2022 (yay for the new year!) is to create birthday cards with two of your favorite colors. I have many favorite combos but I decided to go with blue and green. I made my card using an Altenew stencil set "Playful Patterns" and combined that with sentiment stamps from SSS. A quick and easy card! 

The first challenge of the year is also part of a micro blog hop:

To celebrate the New Year, new beginnings and new blog colours AAA Birthday and AAA Cards are having a micro blog hop.

Fancy winning a £10 spend at ........ or a second prize of a mystery parcel? Then play along like this:

1. Comment on both AAA Birthday and AAA Cards first 2022 challenge post.

2. For two extra entries into the draw enter a different card at each of the first 2022 challenges.

To accommodate the different timings of the two challenges the Micro Hop will begin at 8.00am UK time on Sunday 9th January and close at 23.55 UK time on Saturday 22nd January.

You can of course enter cards at AAA Birthday before and after those dates, but they will not be a part of the prize draw.

Happy crafting and enjoy the hop too! xxx
