AAA Birthday Game #16 Entry: Wonton in a Million

This week's card idea comes courtesy of AAA Birthday who specializes in Birthday Card Challenges. This week's challenge is a game challenge (my favorite kind of challenges). This is what the tic tac toe board looks like this week:

I just recently purchased a plethora of washi tape and stamps from Wonton in a Million. I went for the center vertical row: embossing, washi and window.  

Here's my end result:

I used the washi tape at a slant. The heart emboss folder came from Park Lane. I used 3D adhesive dots to make sure the heart window showed proper dimension.

And because I had my washi tape out, I decided to make a few more cards. Here were some of the other results. Here was another window and embossed card. 

And here's a window card sans embossing.

Finally, I just used the washi tape and stamps to make a fourth card.

I absolutely love this washi tape, and currently, you might find some of this washi tape at Michaels on clearance!

Anna Griffin Empress Machine Review

For the past few months, I've really given my Anna Griffin Empress Machine a workout. For those not in the know, The Empress is a high powered non-crank emboss and die cutting machine. It's akin to devices such as the Cuttlebug, The Big Shot, or the Gemini. I Have a Cricut / Cameo / Silhouette - Why This? The short answer is, you can create texture in your cards. While the aforementioned devices are no doubt powerful and create designs that the Empress can only dream about, there's no doubt that emboss machines give textures and creates intricacy that cutting machines cannot compete with. My most complimented cards are not the ones with the most layers or even the most elegant, rather it's the cards with texture. Cricut and other Cutting Machines just lack that  ability to create the"feel" of a higher quality card. Pros of the Empress I absolutely adore my Empress. For those with arthritis or other mobility issues, a device like the Empress is a

CAS Entry 2: Rainbow Butterfly Card

Yesterday I showcased my Black and Gold Anniversary card . I'm really obsessed with this layout. It's clean and easy, and it allows for so much variety. As mentioned yesterday, this CAS entry is courtesy of Colours & Sketches .  Again, here was the sketch layout: One of my favorite card designs comes from this blog: Cards, Kids and Coffee .  This is a card that I've made a couple of times, but it is quite time consuming: photo credit Keeping this in mind, I thought it would be great if the butterfly circled around the open circle. This meant double the punching and double the rhinestones. So here's my end result: In the center, I just used an embossed nature background. Where the card really stands out is from an angle: And because I can never make one of anything, I made two. If you're wondering what butterfly hole punch I used, I found this one from EK Tools at Michael's on Clearance forever ago. But,

Card Contest July 2020: Christmas in July

For this month, I wanted to run my first card competition and contest. The winner will receive a $10 Michael's Gift Card. The theme for this month is Christmas in July. You can be as interpretive and open-ended as you want for this contest. Any size card. Any materials you have. You might choose to stamp, create 3D shapes, or mix any mediums. I spent the morning working on four cards that will hopefully inspire you. These two llamas came from Stampednous . I colored them in using Copic Markers. The brown llama, I followed as closely as possible to the design given, but I wanted to make sure I put my own spin on the llama - hence the blue one. For my second set of cards, I used Lawn Fawn dies. The main die cut is the portrait stitched hillside backdrop . I also had these trees and house hillside cuts. This was my first time using these die cuts, but the effect is striking, and I can't wait to do again with different backgrounds. Those cards are just some ideas
