Project 2 No Line Coloring

This is my finished project for Altenew's Creative Coloring Class.  I have wanted to try doing no line coloring on a project and I must say it is quite easy.  Altenew's markers are easy to use and blend.  I only have set B so I used my Shin Haun  Markers to draw the stem of the flower as well as the grass free hand.  Sheer Shimmer Craft Spray Frost was used to spray over the entire flower layer.  I used the Get Well Soon stamp set from Altenew for this project.

Creative Coloring With Artist Markers Class

I am taking Altenew Academy Creative Coloring With Artist Markers Class in hopes of improving my use of alcohol markers.  I am enjoying the online class and have had fun with the first two projects!
My first project was learning how to blend colors which was then used as a base behind this great leaf cover die from Altenew.

I started with a 41/4 by 51/2  piece of card stock and practiced blending three shades of the same color from all four corners.  That didn't look that great by itself but when adding the Leaf Cover Die over top, it looks so much better!  I only have the B set of Markers so my card will look different from the rest of the class that used set A.  I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on black card stock .  This is a favorite way of mine to attach sentiments. 
Stay tuned for my second project and thanks for stopping by.  Remember to take time to Enjoy Life's Moments!

Eggplant, Pewter, Goldrush

Color Dare #283 - Eggplant, Pewter and Goldrush.  Three colors that I probably not put together in a card.  However I really like the combination!  Who knew...

I chose CTMH "Blooming Expressions" ( retired D1665) to go along with those three colors.  I have the two tone colors by stamping off the first layer and stamping twice for the outline shapes.  I stamped three flowers to set the placement then stamped one large flower and the small ones along with the leaves on another sheet and fussy cut them out.  Large flower was popped up so that I could tuck the other flowers and leaves underneath.  Matted it on Pewter and Goldrush.  The edges of the main white cardstock was inked around the edges with Pewter ink.

Hope you can now thing of spring and flowers!  Thanks for stopping by and take time to Enjoy Life's Moments!

Hello Spring?

Sitting here and waiting to see if we get snow or just rain.  My flower bed is thinking spring however.  I hope Mother Nature does not disappoint, haha!  So to get in the mood for spring I created this card and had a group that comes to my local library for a card class how to make it.

I used Easter Animals and Easter Basket stamp sets from CTMH.

Ombre cards

Friday and another challenge at AAA Cards!  

I used Doodle Garden background stamp from Catherine Pooler and heat embossed it in white.   Dusty Concord Distress Ink was used to create the ombre effect.

The other card has Bamboo II by SU as a background, heat embossed in white.  Peeled Paint Distress Ink for the ombre effect.  The Smile die is from Catherine Pooler's Zen Garden release.  I cut it out of white cardstock, and the same Distress Ink as on the card.  Popped up using Fun Foam and added Wink of Stella for some bling!

AAA Cards Die Cuts Only

             AAA Cards Die Cuts ONLY Challenge!


Welcome to a new challenge for me and the start to the weekend!  It has been so windy yesterday and still is today.  However we missed the snow which the rest of the east coast has had so I am thankful and will just deal with the wind.

Here is the card I made this morning.  I have never used die cuts only but I must say is was a fun challenge!  I used Tulisa Corner Collage die from Poppystamps that I bought last year at a craft show .  I must say it has become a favorite of mine.   I also die cut the HELLO using a die from Catherine Pooler Designs.   I die cut both on a piece of white cardstock and layered that paper onto a patterened piece I had in my stash.  Cardstock used is White Daisy from CTMH.

Here is a closer look at the HELLO.  I cut three additional one in white and one in black.  They are glued together and popped up inside the cut out of the white layer.  I glued the cutout centers from the h, e, l, l and o directly onto the patterened cardstock. I used Wink of Stella on the Black layer for some sparkle!

Thank you for taking time to stop by and Enjoy Life"s Moments this weekend!

Color Dare #280

Pixie, Emerald and Pansy

 Color Dare 280

I chose this challenge because it made me try to create a card using three colors I would not usually put together!  I must say that I am pleased with the way they went together.  I must say that I have not taken the time to use the Make Waves paper yet.  I do really like all the colors so I am now inspired to create more projects.

I love the Cross-Stitch Love stamp set + Thin Cuts. You get the shading with just stamping once.  You have to love that!  The SOTM from February has been a favorite of mine.  It has been a breath of Spring air in the cold weather we have had.
