AAA CAS Cards Challenge #82

Hello there friends, it's time for another challenge over at 


The theme for this one is Winter Chill and here's my card followed by a
little photo inspiration for you too ...

I adore these Arctic Penguins from Mama Elephant and haven't used them
in a while but they sprung to mind with our theme for this challenge.
I started out by stamping and masking the 2 penguins, followed by the
icy float before inking and blending distress inks in: Chipped Sapphire,
Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Tumbled Glass. A little bit of colour
using Promarkers plus a flick and spritz of perfect pearls and water finishes
the little winter scene which is die-cut using Simon Says Stamp stitched circle 
dies and mounted on fun foam. The sentiment is from Uniko: Pure Florals: Poinsettia!

As always there's plenty more super CAS creations by my fellow teamies, 
with links to their blogs on the AAA Cards blog HERE

We are also delighted to have 2 guest designers with us for this challenge...

First up is Shery of STAMPlorations who also happens to be our sponsor for this one;
our lucky winner will receive a stamp set and die as used by Shery in her card.

Also joining us is one of our previous challenge winners;
Katrina of Katrina's Craftworks

Do pop along and visit their blogs and leave a friendly word or two and some
 love - I'm sure they'll appreciate it.

As always thanks for calling by my blog today and I hope 
you feel inspired and will play along with us!



  1. Such a gorgeous little scene and those penguins are super cute. Love it!

  2. You certainly have a way with ink blending Sarah... I just love this little scene and the way the water is dark and the sky fades to almost white. Those little penguins are just adorable. Perfect card for the challenge.

  3. Ohhh, so sweet, Sarah. :) Beautiful blending.

  4. Your card is super cute Sarah ! These penguins are just adorable trying to get warmer with this little cup of hot beverage ! Such a lovely scene ! And as usual your design is wonderfully CAS ! Thanks for sharing and for inspiring.
