Craftin Desert divas:Bright deer

I made this, week one, release card with the Bright Deer digi from Craftin Desert Divas.
I also used the little candy cane from Sweet time penguin. I printed both on marker friendly paper and had my plotter cut them out.
Colored them with both Spectrum Noir and Illustrator markers.
I printed the sentiment from the same set onto a panel and adhered it to the cardbase.

For the background I masked off the  middle of the card with tape, ripped one piece of tape and used it to make my snow banks. I used Oxide tumbled glass for this. The splattered in white ink.

Mounted the deer with foam tape and adhered him to the card. I used Nuvo deluxe glue for the candy cane, which I thought might also look a little like the North Pole
White gelpen on the deer's nose and cane for shine.

Merry Christmas with glittery backing- glitter achtergrond

Today I'm showing you a card I made Marianne Design/Karin Joan products.

I started by diecutting 3 circles from a panel and Stamped the sentiment from KJ1719 with Versafine Onyx black ink.

Then I stamped the leaves from KJ1715 with 3 colors of Memento inks and diecut them.

I glued a strip of silver glitter paper on the cardbase, so it lines the windows.
Mounted the panel with foamtape and adhered it to the cardbase.
Mounted the twigs with small bits of foamtape and tucked them in and under the window openings.

Materials used/ Gebruikte materialen:
Marianne Design/Karin Joan KJ1715
Marianne Design/Karin Joan KJ1719
Memento inks: Bamboo leaves, Cottage ivy and Nothern pine.

Voor mijn kaart van vandaag ben ik begonnen met het stansen van drie cirkels in een kaart paneel.
Daarna heb ik de groet van KJ1719 met Versafine onyx black ink.
Ik heb een strip van zilver glitter karton gesneden en op de kaart basis geplakt, zodat de cirkels een mooie achtergrond hebben.

Ik heb de takjes van KJ1715 met Memento ink gestempeld en daarna uitgestanst.
Ik heb kleine stukjes foam achter de takjes en de voorkant geplakt en op de basis geplakt  en dan de takjes in de openingen geplaatst.

A tribute to Melissa Lane

Sad news had arrived at AAA headquarters, the untimely passing of our team member Melissa Lane.
 We deceded to commemorate her with Butterfly cards, her favourite colour was red.
For my card I used the Concord and 9th Butterfly beauty with Versafine Clair black ink (Nocturn) and red magic Versamagic ink and a layer of Love letter Memento ink.
The sentiment is from the same set and  I've added 3 red pearls.

My heart goes out to her family in this sad times, I am thinking of you.

See our AAA blog for all the DT tributes.

AAA Cards Challenge #126: moonlight

This fortnight the AAA Cards Challenge is: moonlight.
Our sponsor is Uniko and the prize is the choice of an in stock stamp set.

I was given this gorgeous die of an owl on a branch and I thought the circle around it looked like a full moon, that's why I inkblended a yellow Orange moon.I wanted some kind of candy corn colors because of the time of year.
I used Versamagic mini inks (thatched straw,mango madness and persimmon) on the cardbase.
Diecut the owl from black card and mounted it with foam tape.
As I wanted as much empty space (not white this time) as possible, I didn't add a sentiment. I do not send out cards with Halloween and so I will decide on the sentiment when I use this card, maybe my friend who's a crazy owl lady.
