AAA Cards Challenge 252 : Colour Scheme Inspiration

Hi everyone there's a new challenge at AAA cards and we have a fab picture to inspire us (just remember to keep it CAS).

I have tried to mimic the colours in the hot air balloon with Copic colouring the wee umbrella and I think I got a pretty good match (colours used are listed below).

I also tried a bit of ink smooshing directly to my base card using a wash of Blue Blitz shimmer powder and even though I used a smaller piece of acetate it 's maybe a tad bigger than I was aiming for. But if you've ever tried this fun technique we do have minimal control.  I did it twice, heat drying between each layer. I also splattered with my white gold Gansi Tambi paint with a no. 1 round brush to make little splatters and a bit of shine.

Supply List:
Hero Arts : My Monthly Hero Kit February 2017
Other : Blue Blitz shimmer powder (Nuvo), white gold paint (Tansi Gambi), Lavinia smooth & multifarious white card, Versafine Nocturne Clair, clear EP, Copics, heat tool (RNG)
Copics (darkest to lightest blend): BV08/13/02; V17/15/12; B04/02/01/00; E00

Well I hope you can join in with us and do remember you have 2 weeks so there is plenty of time to play along, we would love to see what  inspires you but definitely check out all the fab cards on display at AAA#252

Thanks for popping in and hope there are no storms to weather where ever you are in the world and especially in NZ hope you're keeping safe and dry as the remnants of Cyclone Lola hits our country tonight.

Reverse masking

Fall in Love was the name of my Lawn Fawn class at the recent SCT virtual cardmaking event. I blogged the official cards yesterday and you can find the blog post HERE.

When we received our big box of goodies I thought at first looking at my pre-class prep aka homework; how weird I have pink (guava) gingham paper and not orange (fake tan) as per our class handout but I wasn't concerned as I had the Fruit Salad DSP where both coloured gingham papers came from so I just substituted the pink we received for the orange from my own stash. As it turned out everyone got the pink one as Lawn Fawn didn't have enough orange DSP to kit for 3400 attendees (though they do cut 12" x 12" DSP into 4; so they didn't have 850 sheets to share with us all).

 Jenn Shurkus aka Creative Chick the teacher and designer of the classes actually rose to the challenge and provided new cutting instructions so everyone had enough orange to do the Fall cards. Then she created a few cards using the pink DSP as well to share. 

Jenn's new cards as well as being pink and teal (her 2 favourite colours) also featured Mr. and Mrs. Harvest (she had added the boy scarecrow from Happy Harvest) but I was intrigued how she also added lots of patches to the 2 scarecrow outfits. and I couldn't work out how she did it with nothing outside the stamped image. What she actually did was a reverse mask, cutting out the stamped image on the line and then adding the "mask" to protect what is going to be die-cut. It looks so cool and I'll definitely going to make a few more, today I've just added 2 patches to an already stamped image I had left over plus used up the left over bits including the pink gingham DSP plus I also pulled out last years Lawn Fawn class stamp etc. from the SCT Fall 2022 event box. 

For this play I coloured my girl scarecrow slightly different using Copic pinks (RVs) and yellow browns (E19 + YRs). I'm really rapt how it all turned out. But these are such cute images it would be hard to not make "cute" and fall in love with Lawn Fawn but I might be slightly biased! From the 2022 kit I've used the scalloped rectangle die, sunflower stamps and the scripty hello die.

Well this was my first go at reverse masking or even thinking of the concept, Jenn Shurkus sure is a Creative Chick!

You Crow Girl

I finally completed my Lawn Fawn class from my big box event taught by Jenn Shurkus over the weekend. I think any Lawn Fawnie who wasn't enrolled with the SCT event is so jealous at the moment as we all received as part of our class kit this adorable scarecrow girl; there's good news for them it will be released but I'm guessing next Fall so they have to wait a wee bit.

Jenn designed and taught 3 fun cards for us to create and kept the colouring all the same but used the extra elements we received in our kits in different and fun ways.

We received the stamp set and matching dies, 3 scalloped border dies, a very handy farm fence die, an "Autumn Breeze" stencil - see card 2 and 3 above plus all the patterned DSP. We've ink blended through the stencil and also ink blended the edges of the layers, some fences and some scallop borders. Jenn used every item we received including the 3 different sizes of scallop borders.

I've used my own ink collection as the only Lawn Fawn inks I have bought have been the alcohol safe ones which come as a pack of 4 mini cubes. Space is a real issue in my craft room i.e. there is no more room!! My colours used Catching Rays (CP), Apricot (PFS - too light - should have gone darker), Paradise (NEW PFS ink - I think a great blue to replace LF's Rainforest, well it played along nicely with the spotted DSP). Mushroom (C9 - happy with this swap for LF's Soot which apparently is a brownish grey-black, I think this Mushroom ink is brownish grey-black too ;)

Good tip: to self and all of us when cleaning stencils with fine details, don't use a microfibre cloth as it's too sticky and I caught one of my leaf's inner working and have lifted it up quite badly; lucky it's a 6" x 6" stencil but a good reminder to work with just my plain flour sack (cotton) cloth and the alcohol spray in future.

Well I loved this class as I love Lawn Fawn and the images always bring a smile to my face. I'm off to make a strawberry pink girl now as we received instead of orange gingham a pink piece, who knew there still was/is problems with paper supplies. Thanks Jenn and Lawn Fawn.

This is the name of the washi tape Pinkfresh Studio provided for our Interactive Cards with Yasmin Diaz, as well as the coordinating stamp set, dies and stencils plus the A2 slider die. I have to admit I can't stop singing Fruit Salad by the Wiggles since doing this class, because truly this washi is (and probably all their washi) are YUMMY, YUMMY. So shiny, so much detail in the shading and the gold edge to the images is just lovely.

This class was one of the reasons I signed up for this Virtual Create and Connect in February 2023 as I really wanted to be taught in a class setting how to use it. To be honest I'm not sure how 8 months later I still have 3 classes to do (now 2 to go) but they have announced their line up for February 2024 with a guest company again and this time it's Pretty Pink Posh, you can see more details HERE if you are interested . The event is capped at 1500 registrants worldwide for logistics sake.

The first card we got to "make with Yaz" was the slider card - mine ended up missing fruit as I forgot to add that really big washi fruit bunch which you can see on the LHS card above, it was supposed to be attached to the layer we were pulling out. I was so busy concentrating on making the slider and lining it all up that I forgot to add the decoration. Luckily for me when I pulled my first strip of washi out to cut and attach to cardstock that there was quite a generous bit left over which I could squeeze into the top opening and then just added a few more "fruits" which we were supposed to add to the front.

I actually like the balance of the card as is, I also modified my card and attached the slider directly to an A2 card, the slider die comes with a rectangle which cuts out an A2 rectangle perfectly which I could see no reason to use. Looking in the class album I can see some have used a coloured cardstock layer or a layer that has a coverplate impression to break up the "whiteness".

This was the second card and as I had the big die-cut left over I saw no point in using the stamp set, dies and stencil to make a stamped image and attached it directly to the rounded braided rectangle which was also part of our Essentials for this event along with the Champagne Ombre glitter drops (we also got their gold pokey tool with wax tip, their pokey end actually has a rounded pokey tip so you can't poke yourself).

And Yaz's cards so you can see how fabulous the slider card looks with all the fruit and her beautiful blending to create her own fruity bunches ;)

I must admit I'm really happy to see in the February 2024 Create and Connect event we are getting some wide Fluttering Butterflies washi which sounds so pretty and hopefully the coordinating stamps etc. will fit in a standard Avery Elle envelope, the sets above needed the largest storage envelope.

Flipping Awesome

Sharing the cards I made at Lawn Fawn's Create with Us online class yesterday. Lawn Fawn have so many cool interactive dies and becoming a fawnie late in their history is a bit tragic I HAVE MISSED OUT ON SO MUCH FUN!! This card used a interactive die called Flipping Awesome and it sure is.

If you click on the link above it will take you to the video plus a downloadable PDF with all the cutting and colouring instructions for the cards.

Now pull on the tab to let the fun begin:

The second card we made used 3 stamp sets from their latest release plus the fab Winter Wonderland window die plus we used their Pixie Dust sparkle glitter paper which is so pretty and sparkly plus dies cut like butter using it. I used the wrong branch below, it should have been bigger so the "snow" is more obvious and I also should have used the smaller pinecone. I didn't see their were 2 pinecones but I had to pick between 3 branches but all would work fine honestly.

This card is so pretty in real life but I know the flipping card will be loved by the kids but both fun cards and love the green/strawberry red vibe as Jenn Shurkus can't do true red, but I'm converted. Big thanks to Jenn and Kelly Marie for another fab class.

Hello Sunshine

Less is More's current challenge caught my eye probably because it wasn't about Fall/Autumn or orange. Today was a truly glorious day; being a balmy sunny Spring day.

Even the colours of the inks I've chosen reflect Summer (Sunshine and Ocean Breeze; both from Pinkfresh Studio). The fab swimsuit is from SU! Sunny Splash, as is the sentiment. I made a mask for the swimsuit and then blended the Ocean Breeze ink through a Beach Sunset stencil (LF) the waves. I normally use darker inks for this set but felt I had to stick with "yellow" to be sunny :)

 If you feel like you need some sunshine in your life right now, do check out all the inspiration at the Less is More's site.

Autumn Blessings

I think I'll need to tuck this card away for another six months as we're heading into Spring in New Zealand but I had a lot of fun spraying shimmer/mystical sprays onto Fabriano Bristol smooth cardstock so  I could die cut out some Artsy Leaves for ALL the "Autumn challenges", unfortunately the shimmer and shine doesn't really show that well in the photos.

I also got to upcycle a cardboard box from my recycling bin using the corrugated cardboard as my mat under the leaves. I've swiped a bit of gold Hero Wax onto the ridges too. The sentiment has been  stamped with Versafine Clair Acorn ink and then clear heat embossed. 

Supplies used:

Taylored Expressions : Happy Harvest (sentiment)
Sizzix : Artsy Leaves dies
Hero Arts : Gold wax, 2-tone Royal Purple + Gold metallic spray
Lavinia : Golden Temple & Pinkella Mystical sprays
Dylusions : Tangerine Dream shimmer spray

ChallengesCAS on Friday #268 ; Simply Clean and Simple : October ChallengeThe Paper Players PP662, The Card Concept #200 (Autumn Chill)

I have been inspired by the purple book above to include the colour purple in one of my sprays. I don't think I've ever seen a purple leaf before but it looks and works great as one of the contrast colours.

Well it's funny everyone is wanting Autumn but I had a ball playing and getting inky with my leaves and I saw the corrugated board on another blog with white leaves and at the time thought what a good idea (and cheap). Do check out all the inspiration on the challenge sites there's some fab cards to see.

Have a great day and thanks for popping in.

Clean and simple thanks card

There's a cool challenge at Addicted to CAS at the moment which is just to use dies on your card (plus be CAS), you can stamp a sentiment if you choose to as well. I have to admit one of my favourite and old dies in my stash is the Thanks Scalloped Border (SSS) so the sentiment is also part of the die.

Supply List:
Paper: Neenah White #80, Purple Posy (SU!), Fresh Freesia (SU!)
Dies: Thanks Scalloped Border (SSS), Pierced Blooms (SU! - flower), Spring Foliage (PPP - flower centre)

Well that was quick and easy and a great card to mass produce.

AAA Cards Challenge 251: It's time to get SPOOKY

It's nearly that fun time of the year little ones dress up and knock on your door. This is a pretty new celebration in New Zealand and there isn't too many tricks but they normally do receive a lot of treats. I'm happy to play along with the happy kiddies and have been squirreling away bags of lollies for weeks so you don't really think about the cost on the night. 

I'm also very happy to play along with AAA cards latest challenge to do spooky in a clean and simple way as this is my first official card as part of the DT, which is my treat!!

My first go I made the moon yellow with yellow-orange detail and thought maybe it should have been more orange to match the fox but I have to be honest now I've made an "orange" moon I like the yellower one better and will show you them side-by-side below but unfortunately I got a tad of yellow ink in my window scene where it shouldn't be. I think why I like the yellow one better is there is more contrast between the 2 colours so the moon's bumps and details stand out clearer.

I've used the Window Scene: Winter (LF)  to make my wee window and then masked off the LHS trees and stamped the  Mini Moon (ALT) in Peach Fuzz (PFS) and Apricot (PFS) for the orange moon. The yellow one is Buttercream (ALT) and Marigold (PFS).

The wee fox, treat bag and sentiment come from Fox Costumes Before n' Afters (LF) and the wee crow came from a kit I received and is also Lawn Fawn but is not available but a right facing one can be found in the Happy Harvest set (LF).

Copics used:
Fox: E00/19 YR 14/27
Treat bag: YR 14/27
Crow: C7/9 YR14
Trees: T0/2/4
Snow: BG0000/000

Well I am thankful that the first official DT card is a wrap and hopefully you will find it fun and inspirational. Hope you can join me regularly on the start of my DT journey :)

Clean and Simple the AAA way

I am very excited to report back that I have been chosen to join the design time for AAA Cards Challenge, as you might have noticed if you follow my blog this is my favourite challenge site. 

My main reasons why?
  • I really like Clean and Simple Cards
  • I love that their challenges are fortnightly
Personally I find churning a card out a week a struggle, sometimes it takes me 3-4 days to work out what I want to create and I've always looked at challenge sites end of the week when I'm thinking about how much time I have free in the weekend so if the challenge finishes in the next day or two I just move onto the next. So AAA is CAS and I have time to think and the challenge can be quite challenging which is great for helping me grow as a card maker.

I thought I would just explain Clean and Simple the AAA way as lots of CAS site interpret it slightly different.

In the past I might have pushed the boundary but have never minded doing that as I never enter to be chosen in the top 3. I do it to make me think outside the box and it has certainly helped me find my mojo at times when it seems to have gone walkabouts. It also makes me use stamps, dies, stencils I just had to buy and then never used and I know I'm not alone in doing this!

Saying this I have always been honoured when my card was picked as the pick of the challenge and I enjoyed being a guest designer so this is the next step doing it every 2 weeks. 

My bit of advice if you would like to be chosen as one of the top picks is 
  • minimal layers (they say less than 3)
  • minimal embellishments or texture (often you can add the bling after the photo has been snapped if that is your thing)
  • you need a focal image (normally just one) and make it POP
  • white space doesn't have to be white its just "clean" space and can be any colour 

Maaike has explained HERE in a short video how to do CAS the AAA way with lots of examples.

Well I'm starting officially on the design team tomorrow for Challenge 251 and I would love it if some of my crafting friends join in as well to celebrate my selection. Challenge 251 is a fun one as well. It goes live 8am in the UK on Sunday every 2 weeks, for me in NZ at the moment it's my 8pm (sometimes it's 7pm depending on DST etc). I do sincerely hope to catch you in the challenge or if not this one another one!!

EZ with CZ Part 2

I managed to finish of the card set from my big box with Cathy Zielske and Concord and 9th, but getting so frustrated with Briar Rose ink its a real dirty dark rose pink. I walked away from SU! inks as they too are dirty (lots of grey undertones), so it saddens me here's another dirty pink ink. I also seem to make mud using it with the Lemongrass. Looking in the class album on Facebook I am not alone in my efforts with these inks.

These are the 3 cards together:

I have no idea how Cathy gets her blending so light. I tried wiping off excess ink by swiping my cube on some scrap paper. Her tip that I shared yesterday did not work with my smaller blending brushes. I decided to just persevere and finish the class off  and will revisit the card kit when I have finished the box off and try other colour combos as I really love the class kit.

FYI this is what we received for this class kit:
  • 4 ink cubes: Pebble, Juniper, Lemongrass and Briar Rose
  • Set of coordinating coloured enamels dots
  • On My Mind bundle : stamp set (really sentiments and additions to stamp on pots), 3 piece stencil and dies

Close up of the remaining 2 cards below, I love the Briar Rose card but still don't like how Briar Rose and Lemongrass inks blend to a brown i.e. "mud" when blended by me. If I'm honest I  also don't like the friend die cut in Pink Lemonade card stock and not sure why they introduced a new colour which to me doesn't really work that well with the ink colours. Maybe they didn't have enough Briar Rose (which is the base card) to provide us with more. I think in hindsight and I may still do it and add on top another die cut out friend from Briar Rose card, which I own. They also could have got us to make our card stock by ink blending a panel. I still don't like the "wonky" banner. The friend and the stamped banner sentiment are in the panel where we masked off the middle row to make some white space.

Last card and again I really hate my blending of that Briar Rose ink on the pots, it didn't lighten back like normal. I am hHappy though with the ink blending of Lemongrass ink onto Lemongrass cardstock and the Juniper ink onto Avocado (mid-green) and Juniper card stock. I love these wee dies and I do like the pun-ny sentiment.

I think the C9 class is normally one of my favourite classes in the big box and in the past I have loved how their inks blend which is why I invested in getting them ALL (plus the re-inkers) which is why I am so disappointed how this all turned out for me. I'm definitely revisiting this class and C9 have kindly provided us with other combos to try. Sharing Cathy's fun sneak peeks so you can see how fab her ink blending was as well.
✿ Karen ✿

EZ with CZ (again)

One of the classes I always look forward to in my big box is the Concord and 9th class with Cathy Zielske, she makes it EZ and fun. I was excited also when I saw my kit as I didn't really have a stencil and dies like we were going to be using so that is always a big plus.

We received 4 ink cubes from C9 but I decided after 2 big boxes and receiving 12 cubes already that I loved their ink and they filled in so many gaps in my ink collection that I bought the remaining colours. So now I have 4 extras. The colours we received this year were Briar Rose, Lemongrass, Juniper and Pebble; all new in 2023. They seem to be very kind and always give colours they have not given away before too which is very generous on their behalf.

Now the first card uses C9 ink, coordinating enamel dots, On my Mind stencil and stamp set (which is really just sentiments) and in case you're wondering the banner sentiments are supposed to be slightly wonky/organic. Personally I would have preferred mine straight but C9 normally are very innovative so it might be a sign of what is coming.

I followed along with how Cathy did her ink blending and I did not like my first attempt (the darker card with mud at the top). She really loaded her brush up with ink and then tapped most of it on paper before blending and I did that but even though I was trying to be light handed it was too much ink. She then said something that I hadn't really tried before and it worked. 

BIG TIP TIME: Use a bigger blending brush and hold the head with your thumb and index finger so you have better control and can get a much lighter touch. 

This was much easier and she was right, the 2nd try was so much better. I'm still not sure about the Briar Rose and Lemongrass blend it is still slightly dirty. Briar Rose has really stained my pink blending brush and it looks brown and the Lemongrass looks really dark on my yellow brush too, so guess they will be getting washed after this class. Cards below; the LHS is my first go holding the blending brush how I used too with my hand gripping the handle and my index finger on top (plus loading the brush up which I don't normally do) and the second go is on the RHS using the ink left in the brush and me holding the brush with my thumb and index finger as if it didn't have a handle.

Lighter card all by itself, this is a really easy card to whip up and I love the rows of pot plants.

Simple Sympathy Cards

Firstly happy world card making day (WMCD). I think it's the first Saturday in October and not an actual date. BUT IT IS TODAY, we just need the rest of the world to catch up to us ;)

I've been playing in the craft room but it's for an upcoming challenge so can't share yet with you all so thought I would blog about the "Simple Sympathy Class" with Libby Hickson for Hero Arts which I really loved. This was part of my #cropandcreatedelivered with SCT aka "my big box event". These are the four cards we created:

And this was our class kit of goodies (post class which is why my dot palette looks "used":

One of the things I was looking forward to in this class was that we were doing some simple watercolouring using a Daniel Smith Dot Dream palette. I've actually received a dot palette a few times before in kits but had no idea how to use it. In essence it is very small drops of Daniel Smith watercolour paint dried on a printed palette. It must be quite an effort to create them when a lot of dots and our one had a lot of dots but they are allow you to try DS watercolour paints which are incredibly EXPENSIVE $50 in NZD approximately a tube. I am very happy to say in my hands I do not need incredibly expensive watercolours. If I'm honest I could see no advantage over these than any other watercolour medium I already own. They were very bright but I don't think the expense is justified for the kind of dabbling I do with watercolouring but it was certainly fun to try them out under tuition.

We received as well as the dot palette With Sympathy stamps, dies and transfers coming in the Spring release for HA in February 2024. I loved this set and the transfers were amazing with white ones and black ones. My 2 pages of transfers has been cut up quite extensively and Libby suggested it was a good idea to use a small staple to keep the transfer sheet with the backing sheet.

The card below is just a wash of Mayan Yellow, Green Gold, Kingsman Green and Manganese Blue Hue paints from the palette. Dried and repeated. Dried again with a heat tool and then the transfer applied, it stuck so well to the watercolour paper. All the transfer images are in the stamp set but I love them and definitely going to buy more when released.

This card is multiple stamp images gold embossed onto black card stock (don't forget your embossing buddy powder tools) and then each image coloured in with the same shade. Some of the dots on the palette were iridescent or duotone so they are actually very sparkly in real life.The sentiment is also a transfer added to a white scrap.

This was the easiest card - it's all transfers. I love, love the white transfers on Kraft cardstock.

Last but not least the same image stamped and gold heat embossed and then Copic coloured up, die-cut out, popped up on foam and arranged in a wreath. The base card was supposed to be a very pale blue Hero Arts ink blended around the edge of the base card. I ended up doing a blend with Aqua Sky and Sea Glass which are light blue and light aqua inks from Concord and 9 as I felt that was a good match to the BG11 Copic used on some of the leaves.

I really loved this class and the images in the stamp set can be used on all sorts of cards. I've even used a black transfer on my recent play with faux dip dye play card.

Faux Dip Dye

I watched a new technique to me watching Pinkfresh Studio's Craft Hour with Jeff Lindberg and Kristina Werner the other day which you can watch HERE. I like to play when I see something new so there is a chance I might recall how to do it. So I thought it would be a good technique to play along with AAA Birthday current monthly challenge which is to make a birthday card with your favourite colour. Yellow is definitely one of my fav colours and I love the Pinkfresh Studio yellow colour combos so thought let's have a go at faux dip dye.

I'll tell you now there are a lot of drying steps to do this technique, I had 9 layers in my panel also I don't think Ranger Distress Watercolour paper is quite heavy enough for this technique as so many layers are added to the bottom by the time you have finished as I had quite major buckling even though my panel was taped down to a hard board.

In essence you smoosh your ink pad to a palette (I used my wee WRMK glass magnetic board), add TWO brushfuls of water and paint to bottom. DRY. Wipe palette clean; smoosh same colour this time only add ONE brushful of water so it's a slightly darker wash, add this layer slightly below first layer and paint to bottom. DRY. Then it's just rinse and repeat above using darker shades as you go, first time you introduce the new shade it's the lighter wash with 2 brushfuls of water, then a new wash with 1 brushful of water. But definitely do check out the video I have linked, it's the second technique they are playing with so you can start watching around the 42 minute mark approximately.

My layers are:
  • Lemon Whip inkpad smoosh with 2 brushfuls of water
  • Lemon Whip inkpad smoosh with 1 brushful of water
  • Sunshine inkpad smoosh with 2 brushfuls of water
  • Sunshine inkpad  smoosh with 1 brushful of water
  • Sweet Mustard inkpad smoosh with 2 brushfuls of water
  • Sweet Mustard inkpad smoosh with 1 brushful of water
  • Marigold inkpad smoosh with 2 brushfuls of water
  • Marigold inkpad smoosh with 1 brushful of water
  • Marigold inkpad and Persimmon inkpad smoosh with 1 brushful of water
  • Persimmon inkpad smoosh with 1 brushful of water
Now Kristina and Jeff used a large no. 12 round brush, I used my biggest a  no. 8 brush that I got from doing an acrylic painting class but it had a big head so the "brushful" was quite big; obviously depending upon the brush you use you will have to adjust the amount of water you add to get changes in the colour.

Up close to see the layers; please note the flower is a transfer from Hero Arts which I love but is not available to purchase until most likely February 2024. I received it as part of a set from a virtual card class.

Supply List:
Stamps: Label Love (ALT)
Ink: Versafine Clair Nocturne
PFS Inks: Lemon Whip, Sunshine, Sweet Mustard, Marigold, Persimmon
Paper: Distress watercolour (RNG), black, Neenah #110 
Other: no. 8 paint brush, palette, heat tool (RNG), painter's tape and hardboard, Butterscotch glitter drops, stitched rectangle die (SSS) and the flower is a transfer from Hero Arts which is NOT released yet.
Challenges: AAA Birthday #54

Plenty of time to enter the challenge to show of your favourite colour plus there's a wee prize draw for entries received before October 14th but otherwise you have all month to enter their challenge.
