Hi everyone, time for another challenge at AAA Birthday. This month it’s a colour palette theme. Come along to the AAA Birthday blog and see what the Design Team has created and a special welcome to Trina as this months Guest Designer.
I wasn’t sure where I was going initially with the colour scheme and you only have to include at least two of the colours but I ended up using all the of them.
Boy, a week goes fast…I was too late to enter this card into the previous CA(s)E this sketch challenge but here it is anyway.
Step 1 – Mask the shape with your preferred masking material.
Step 2 – Ink blend distress oxide inks over background. I used Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire.
Step 3 – Die cut sun shape from Concord & 9th Shine On stamp and die set.
Step 4 – Ink blend Distress Oxide inks on a separate piece of cardstock and adhere behind die cut opening. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Wild Honey.
Step 5 – Stamp images onto copic friendly cardstock (I use Hammermill brand) with copic friendly ink – Momento Tuxedo Black.
Step 6 – colour images with alcohol markers.
Step 7 – I used my Brother Scan n Cut DX1200 to cut around images. Otherwise you can die cut with coordinating dies or fussy cut.
Step 8 – Add extra details. I had to add sand for the Sandy Toes so used three different shades of Altenew Inks to suggest sand. I also added some white gel pen to shorts and blue glitter gel pen to hat.
Step 9 – Stamp sentiment. I laid out my images without adhering to check exact location of sentiment and stamped sentiment with my Mini Misti.
Step 10 – Adhere images with dimensional foam to pop up images.
Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Have you heard the Buzz? This is my entry for the current Color Throwdown#ctd456. A new stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps ‘Busy Bees’ with the matching sentiment set ‘Bee-You-Tiful’.
I started with stamping the background with the Concord & 9th ‘Stripe Builder’ and Altenew Crisp Dye Inks and practised my plaid background designs. I then simply stamped the images I wanted to use, coloured them with copics and cut them out with my Brother Scan n Cut. I popped the images up with various heights of foam adhesives to add extra dimension.
The extra little dotted flying lines and a few mini jewels in the centre of the flowers finish it off.

Hi Everyone. Just a quick post today to enter this card into three challenges.
The hearts from My Favorite Things ‘All Heart’ were stamped in Versamark Ink, heated embossed with Zing Red Glitter powder, cut out with matching die and popped up on craft foam. I then masked off the square on the black cardstock and applied Hero Arts Pigment Ink in ‘Unicorn’ over a Faber Castell diamond stencil. The sentiment, also from My Favorite Things ‘All Heart’ was embossed in Hero Arts white powder, as was the line from Concord and 9th‘Stripe Builder’ stamp set. The most challenging thing about this card was taking the photo…who knew how tricky it is to take a photo of black cardstock!!!
I’ll be linking this card up with the following three challenges:
