Happy Sunday! Welcome to another wonderful challenge at AAACards. This one got to be an entertaining one! – ‘Inspired by a TV Show’
I was inspired by the TV show Star Trek and Big Bang. Here’s my take –
This card is extra extra special because i made it with goodies gifted to me by my dear friend and supremely talented Maakie. She blogs at cardsbymaaike , check her site and You Tube channel for tons of inspiration.
To make this card I first colored the image with copics markers (alcohol markers) I then fussy cut the image with a scissors. I then used a stencil with abstract geometric patterns and nuvo glimmer paste to create a background in the corner of the card. Its always easy to make a CAS card by having the elements in one corner to maximize all the empty space.
To finish the card i adhered the sentiment that was heat embossed in white on a black card stock stripe.
I then adhered the colored image just on top of the sentiment with foam tape for dimension.
I hope my cards inspires you to play along AAA Cards challenge and gets you crafting to make some handmade happiness for your loved ones. Just remember to keep is Clean and Simple – CAS.

There’s a new challenge in town and an awesome one! It’s Twofer Card Challenge. I have always loved making multiple styles, using cards out of the supplies that are already on my craft table. So i am sure many are going to enjoy this challenge as it gets the creative juices flowing . Today i am excited to play along with their very first challenge with the theme – Feathers.
I am using the feather stamp from the Happy Dreams set by Altenew for both my cards.
My first card is a dream catcher with the feathers and is an encouragement / motivational one.
To make this card I first heat embossed with white on a water color card stock. The stampset is from simon says stamp, it’s called “look for the miracles”.
To match the design on the sketch I used ink squooshing technique with distress oxide inks. The emboss resist technique works so well with these inks.
I then added golden thread and sequins before sticking the white heat embossed ‘Thank you’ sentiment on a black card stock with foam squares for dimension. I loved the small detail near the sentiment on the sketch and added one on mine too.
To match the variety of white foliage in the sketch, I added white die cut leaves. I wanted these new additional leaves to be different than the ones already embossed in texture and shape. I love how the additional leaves tied in with the card.
To finish the card, I stuck my card panel on to a black card base that is slightly bigger so that it will provide a border to the white card front.
I had a great time playing along with the challenges and making this card.
Hope you like it. Do let me know what you think about it in the comments section.
For my card I heat embossed with white embossing powder a backgound stamp from My Favorite Things on a water color card stock. I always love how Michelle uses rainbow colors and so I went for it. I absolutely love how she uses White space to balance the card and keep it simple. While case-ing her card, I learnt to do the same. Since my background panel already has more colors I decided to use white n black for the sentiment. To finish the card I used sequins just they way Michelle does.
I really enjoyed playing along with this challenge.
