IMG_6148I started by creating the shaker portion of my card. I used the Rope Embossed Circle Dies from Kat Scrappiness to create the window to show the brand new Madison Avenue mix and Clear AB Solid Stars Sequins. I added a grass die and a blue sky using Distress Inks. On the grass, I stamped “I move” from the Interactive Card Directions Set using Versifine Onyx Black. Then I added Lola the Giraffe with a brad behind her head so she can swirl around the shaker window. This makes it double the fun and double the interactive cardiness! How awesome is that?! I Copic colored Lola and fussy cut her out. A simple brad attached to the center portion of the car allows her to spin around on the card.
I hope you have been inspired by my project.

Hello Suitcase Friend

Hey guys! After being out of town for most of last week I was finally able to get back to cardmaking. I have a really cool card to share today featuring some colors from the current challenge at Color Throwdown and the sketch from Fusion Challenge. Check them out-



I think these colors would work awesome for for a masculine card, but this sketch was calling for an intricate image to feature some Copic coloring so here’s what I came up with-


This photo was taken at 3am with my kitchen logging so it’s not the best, but hey/ these challenges end too soon to wait until morning. Anyways, I used an image from Stamping Bella and a die set from MFT. I Copic colored the image and popped up the hidden sentiment with some fun foam. Some sweet scalloped detail is brought to you from a Scalloped Circle Die by Kat Scrappiness. The patterned paper is from Doodlebug. And that’s all there is to this super clean and simple card! Hope you found some inspiration! Have a great day!


Mr. & Mrs.

Hi everyone! I have a super cool card to share today! This is one of my favorites!!! I made it using some inspiration from Inspired by All the Little Things.


I loved the wording mixed with the florals in the photo. So here’s my take-


I started by stenciling on some polka dots using Distress Oxide Ink and a MFT stencil. Then I stamped some flowers from W+9 onto the panel. A die cut sentiment from Paper Smooches finished it off.

This was a really fun card to make. Mixing brands and seeing the results is so much fun! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Over the Moon

Hey guys! I made a few cards today and here is the first! I used thbcuurent sketch at MFT as inspiration!

I really liked how layered this sketch was, yet I still kept it clean and simple  check it out-


I used MFT’s Space Explorers stamp set for all the images as well as the sentiment.  I used their large polka stencil as the banner portion of the sketch. A couple heart dies from Kat Scrappiness pulled it all together! Thanks for stopping by!

Elegant Congrats

Hello, everyone! It’s time to share another card with you all! I recently bought my first stencil and now I’m hooked! I’ve ink blended, heat embossed, and my favorite- gold acrylic paint. This stuff is magic. It’s so creamy and shiny and sparkly. I love it. I shared a card over on my instagram featuring the same look a few days ago. But here is another card using the same supplies and technique. I used a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and colors from Color Throwdown.


I loved loved the sketch and thought the partial circle shape would be great to use a stencil instead of a die cut or stamp. Check it out-


I masked off parts of the Hero Arts stencil and scraped on some paint. After it dried, I added a strip of paper and a die cut congrats from Mama Elephant. Some white splatter finished it off. It was a super quick and easy design but that paint really makes a statement.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Friend

Hey guys! I have another birthday card to share! This time I used a sketch from MFT and colors from the Color Throwdown challenge! AAA Cards is celebrating year three, so I used a birthday sentiment for this card!


I decided to flip flip the sketch upside down for this card. Check it out-


I used 2 MFT dies for this card- Single Stitched Rounded Rectangles and the FRIEND from Friend, Hugs and Smiles set a little bit of gold heat embossing and a sentiment strip along with a washi tape flag finished off this card! I’ve been experimenting with different styles lately and really enjoyed making this more graphic styled design.

Thanks for stopping by me have a great night!
