AAA Cards Challenge #55

Hello there friends are you ready to 'kick off' with first challenge 
of 2016 over at 
 AAA Cards
This one is all about GLITTER!
Love it or hate it that's what we'd like to see on your cards!
Here's mine and although I like the look of glitter I hate the clearing up!!!

The sweet and super talented Laura Sterckx of Making Cards is Fun was having a 
little craft stash clear out recently and I was lucky enough to 'bag' this 
Mama Elephant: Up, Up and Away set, which I've used here. The images are 
heat-embossed using WOW metallic silver sparkle to create a 'glittery' effect. 
The 'celebrate' sentiment is from Uniko: All Occasion Sentiments #6 and embossed
 in the same powder. The images are watercoloured using Distress Inks
 before smothering with Wink of Stella - for more glitter!
The 'You Party Animal' sentiment is from Avery Elle and to finish I've added
more glitter by framing the panel on a base of glittered cardstock.

this week so I'd like to pop this card in there and here's a little 
photo inspiration for you just in case you are in any doubt as to 
what's required on this one!!!

I do hope you'll pop across to the main AAA Cards blog
to check out what wonderful designs have been created by my 
talented teamies and thanks as always for stopping by my blog.



  1. Super cute card! I'm joining your experience about cleaning up after using glitter. :-))

  2. So your adorable monkey and all those fabulous balloons.

  3. So adorable! Finally nice to see his cute little tail being used! Hehe!

  4. Super cute little monkey Sarah. And are you saying you don't like being covered in glitter for the rest of the day - so easy to spot crafters!

  5. Great colors and design, Sarah! Thanks for joining us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  6. What a fun little monkey! I love all of the sparkle and the angled panel. :)

  7. This is so adorable Sarah. I and everything around me was covered in glitter for one little word. You were very, very smart with this wonderfully glittery creation. Love the panel of glitter paper framing your sweet image and sentiment!

  8. How could Laura get rid of this set !! It's the greatest - and that bunch of balloons I have used on so many cards!! I love the way you've done this with silver embossing powder - it makes it look completely different and works really well. The red glitter edge is a perfect touch.
