AAA Cards 123

It's been a while since I played at AAA Card Challenge, even though there are always lovely challenges. There just never seems to be enough time!

I've been playing around with baby wipes and re-inkers a bit this week as we're using that technique in this month's classes. After taking inspiration from this sketch, this is where is ended up.

The re-inkers that I used were Bermuda Bay, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight. After stamping the leaves through a circular mask, I sponged lightly around the edges in Bermuda Bay. I cut one extra leaf and popped it up, ever so slightly breaking frame.

For the sentiment, I used the label die from Petals & More but shortened it so that the words were a snugger fit and the frame fitted inside the circle.

If you live anywhere in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up demonstrator, I'd love to help you with ideas and Stampin' Up products. Please message me through my Facebook page, linked in the sidebar of this blog or leave a comment below. 

And, of course, you can shop with me from anywhere in New Zealand by clicking any of the products pictured below or the SHOP NOW button in the sidebar of this blog or you can message me.
