Guest Design for AAA cards challenge blog

Hello everyone!

As you read it from the title I am so very excited to tell you that I was asked by lovely Jane from AAA cards challenge blog to be their guest design for the Game #72- New to you Technique

This is also my very first time guest designing and I was nervous but totally enjoyed the experience.

When Jane told me the challenge I was so glad since I got some techniques that I haven't tried yet , now was the perfect moment.
I made some cards I admit :) just because I wanted to find the perfect card for this challenge and this was the one I like it the best!

If you wandering what ''the new to me technique'' i used in this card is : embossing with dies!
I always wanted to embossed with dies but since I got just the basic shapes and some words dies and no Sizzix silicone rubber i never try it.
But i recently got this tag and cute floral die cuts from Create a smile and i also saw on You tube that people actually embossed with fun foam and i did it too .
I loved it and now one technique from my To Do list checked :)

For the flowers i colored with Stabilo Markers on watercolor paper and then die cut with Cool Cuts from Create a Smile and arranged them into a beautiful bouquet !
To add a bit of color behind my bouquet and to make the tag pop a bit I inked blended some Teeny Bikini from Simon Says Stamp.
The sentiment is from Create a Smile - Lovely Critters stamp set!  And my card was finished!

  Thank you so much for having me as Guest Design , was such a wonderful experience!
  Thank you for stopping by! Have a lovely day!

  7. Alexandra, your card is so tender. The embossed tag makes a perfect setting for the flowers. Believe me or not, I've never tried embossing with dies or foam. Got it on my list. So happy you accepted Jane's invitation to be our GD at AAA Cards. - Sweet Kobylkin
