kraft red and blue i love you

I was on a roll yesterday. Ready for some cards?

So I'd seen this color combo. Then I ran across kraft leftovers from Christmas tag creations. So I decided to try to use up the negative piece...


white embossing powder

Adhered it at a wonky angle on a kraft cardbase I'd heat embossed with two sweet snowmen. TIP: Used my MISTI. Stamped. Colored. Stamped. Heat embossed. Gives a nice clean finish. Decided to work a snippet of PP into the design too.


So then, having these colors on the brain and wanting to play with some new stamps, I remembered the current AAA Cards challenge to only use one third of your card. The stamps are Inkystamp Retro Chic, Winzige Gruesse and Chic Chicks. The inks are Adirondack Red Pepper, Pool and Latte - still some of the best colors out there ;)



And because this "tree" image reminded me of one of my long ago designs, I revisited it too!


Unfortunately, the color challenge has closed but I'm heading over to:
Daring Cardmakers - Just Stamping
Poppystamps - Starry Night (my snowmen are nestled in stars... close enough?!?)
AAA Cards - Up to one Third
Just Add Ink - New (my Inkystamp stamps)

Just amazing! Love all your the cards but obviously the ones that use only one third caught my eye. And the final card is a super CAS blast from the past. Thanks so much for playing so regularly at AAA Cards, hope to see you continue to pop up in our gallery throughout 2019.

Beautiful cards. I love how you used the negative die and the layers on the first, and the clean look of the others that let the color shine!

Love the way you used the bright colored trees on your CAS cards. I especially like the way you incorporated '60' in to your birthday card design.
