AAA Cards #129 - Mostly White

Hi everyone! It is a new challenge over at AAA Cards challenges and the theme is Mostly White.

My card was made thinking about a snowy Christmas.

I die cut the snowflakes and glued glitter onto them (the picture doesn't show the sparkle). I stamped the sentiment on the card and embossed it with silver embossing powder. Then I added the snowflakes around them. Between the silver on the sentiment and the glitter it really does shine :)

Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Layered Wreath
Dies: MFT - Let it Snowflake too
Embossing powder - Hero Arts Silver
Glitter - Elizabeth Craft Warm Diamond

Out sponsor this challenge is STAMPlorations and Shery has upped the value for this challenge to $20 GC. Hope you can join us :)

Thanks so much for visiting!

AAA Cards #128 - On the Move

Hi everyone. It is time for a new challenge at AAA Cards. The theme this fortnight is On the Move.


For my card, I thought of on the move as movement from the wind.

To start, I stamped the three dandelions with versamark except for the one on the right. Then I stamps the single dandelion that has seeds blowing next to the first two. I embossed them with white ep. After the ep was dried, I used a zig clean color marker to color all the nooks in the dandelion and along the stems to give them a shadow. I also used a the zig to draw the faint outline of the ground (hard to see in the picture). Then I stamped the sentiment and added a few clear enamel dots around it. 

Stamps: Happy Little Stampers - Dandelion Wishes
Inks: Versamark, MFT - Extreme Black;Zig Clean color marker - Shadow Mauve
Embellishments: Hero Arts - white EP; Nuvo drops -  Morning Dew
