Game #192 - One Corner + optional twist Childhood Memories

I have needed to re-draw the $20 CAS-ual Fridays prize from our 7th birthday challenge and the new winner is:

#31 Melanie H


 Please contact Jane with your details - aaacardchallenge@gmail.com

 Are you ready for the next challenge here at AAA Cards?

Of course you are!


So the one corner is a given, but will you add in the optional twist?

Looks like our fabulous Guest Designer Marieke has!


How fun is that? And it's made me remember that I was a brownie and a girl guide. I hope you'll have time to pop over to Marieke's blog and thank her for the memories - HERE.

Let's take a look at how the AAA Cards DT have been inspired by the One Corner and maybe some childhood memories too.

Well are you feeling all nostalgic now? Plenty to inspire you to play along I'm thinking!




We're looking forward to seeing your CAS cards fill our gallery. Just remember here at AAA Cards we love empty, non patterned white space.

Game #191 - No Layers + optional twist Use Hexagons

Hey!

So pleased to have you stop by today as it's the beginning of another CAS card challenge. 


We've re-branded our One Layer challenges into No Layers as that is really what we're after and thought it would be a more user friendly description.

So no layers at all for this challenge, just the card base plus an image and sentiment. We still think it's ok to adhere a card front to a card base as long as there is no border showing - we know this has to be done if you've used colouring pens.

We're delighted to welcome Sue Symens as our guest designer. Sue has been a long time supporter of our challenges and has an amazing CAS style. 

A real masterpiece of ink blending and a sneaky little inlaid greeting that doesn't impact on the no layers at all. Hope you'll find time to pop over to her blog and leave her a lovely comment - HERE.

Time to take a look at what the AAA Cards DT have been up to with this theme and maybe the optional twist of hexagons too. 




(with a video on her blog)





We're sadly saying goodbye to Melissa as a DT member as she has decided to concentrate on her first love of cross stitch and drop card making as a hobby. Best wishes for your future, it's been great to share your paper crafting journey with you here at AAA Cards.


We're looking forward to seeing your CAS cards fill our gallery. Just remember here at AAA Cards we love empty, non patterned white space.

Beautiful card, love the fabulous background with the pines and the dragon silhouette


Congratulations Cornelia,
 please contact Jane to arrange a Guest Design spot -

Top Three 
 In order of entry

#3 Helen


A perfect CAS card with loads of that all important empty white space. The line of colourful fishes and the simple sentiment really caught our eye.

#17 Linda


We just loved how Linda kept everything confined to that top one third of the card - exactly as the challenge them said! The cute scene was an added bonus.




The sweetest ever unicorn towing a gorgeous rainbow of movement. And of course only one third used with the rest empty white space.

Congratulations to you all, please grab our winners badge to display on your blogs.
