AAA Cards Game 3

Last week's game inspired some truly amazing cards.  It was so exciting to see them all popping up and I loved visiting all the blogs - so much talent out there!

I'm sure this week's game is going to be just as awesome. Just wait till you clap your eyes on the stunning card, made by Linda Beeson, that we have to inspire you.  

This was such a pleasure to use and in no time at all my card was made!  

I used washi tape on thin card to make the pennant picking up on the pinky red from Linda's card.  The spots were really helpful when cutting the tail.

I then used a mask to create the orange and yellow spotty background for my sentiment card. I picked out lots of favourite sentiments to stamp over the background, rounded the corners and mounted it onto pads and hey presto my card was done. So fun!

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Say It In Style
Inks: Memento, lady bug, tangelo, dandelion, tuxedo black
Stncil: Stamposuarus
Punch: Xcut corner rounder
Washi tape from my stash

Of course one card is never enough, so off I set to interpret the 'inspire' in a different way.  

So this time I started out with a yellow card base - wow that's bright! I stamped three rows of tiny circles, picking up on the colours from Linda's background. I stamped a vertical row of outline circles in black and then matted the whole strip onto hot pink card.

Finally I die cut a rectangle and stamped my sentiment in the middle and matted it onto orange and used pads to add dimension.

A simple CAS card with loads of impact!

Stamps: Uniko Studio, Background Builders, Round In Circles; Clearly Besotted, Say It In Style
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black, rose bud, tangelo, dandelion
Die: Lil'inker, stictched mats rectangles

And as I'm a lover of three and have loads of boys in my family, I then went completely off  piste and made a blue version of my first card. 

As first card apart from inks: Memento, Summer sky, Bahama blue, Danube blue, Paris dusk

I hope you find the time to be inspired and maybe win the wonderful digi that's on offer this week.  Looking forward to seeing what you create.

Thanks for looking. Love reading your comments.
