New DT Introductions 3

Welcome back for the last of our new DT introductions.

Let's give them a warm welcome as they say hello and share a water coloured card to inspire you to play along with our 2nd challenge.

Pip

A big hello to everyone.  My name is Pip and I'm delighted to be part of this Design Team.  
I live in a city in the North Island of New Zealand with my husband and 2 dogs.  My two daughters are currently studying/living in a city two hours away so we are able to still have regular family time together.  
I have dabbled in lots of traditional handcrafts since I was young and came across cardmaking in 2015 when my daughters left home to study at University.  I found cardmaking a perfect way to express my creativity and to give people a one of a kind hug in a card.  
I love using all types of mediums...my current style is Anything Goes 😜.


Here's her card:




Hello!  My name is Sarah and I have been a keen papercrafter for over 10 years now - it keeps me sane alongside a full time job, two teenage boys and a very bouncy cockapoo called Oscar :)  I have been really lucky to have been on some great DTs over the years and still work with Uniko.  This past year has seen me launch my own range of stencils and stamps which you can find in my online store - www.funkyfossil.co.uk.  My style tends to be CAS but every now and then my inner messy crafter comes out to play!  I love inks, pastes, paints and basically all manner of techniques.  I am really looking forward to being on this great DT.  I may even get around to sending a birthday card every now and then rather than just making them!!

Here's her card:



So now are you ready to play along with our challenge - Use Water Colours


Hope to see your birthday card popping up in our gallery!

Hi all, I'm Alli

I'm originally from Hull in the UK, but we emigrated and for the last 11.5 years I have been living in Melbourne Australia. 
I studied art at school and I still have my original water colour Rowney Georgian set haha
I have been making cards/crafting for nearly 20 years but only started blogging and Instagram this April ...yes it took me a while...
I've been a guest DT, and I'm also on  MMM DT with Wei
You'll see I love colouring florals, with any medium, I also have full set syndrome...haha

Here's her card:



Hello, I am Wei from Taiwan which is an island state like Japan. I live with my hubby and our two girls. I was a teacher and taught Chemistry at high school. For accompanying my little girls, I quit my job years ago. For creating my girls' paper toys, I started paper crafting, then got addicted to card-making.

New DT Introductions 1

I'm delighted to be here today to begin the introductions to the new DT. 

Let's give them a warm welcome as they say hello and share a water coloured card to inspire you to play along with our 2nd challenge.


Hi everybody,
my Name is Angela and I’m living with my hubby Andreas and our Beagle Cooper in Berlin / Germany.
I’m so happy to be part of this wonderful Design Team.
I'm crafting since my childhood and many years ago I discovered the stamping world for me. I really love to create cards, boxes and other things with lovely images and embellishments. I'm loving to color my images and backgrounds with different techniques: Copic Markers, Distress Inks, Aquarelle pencils. It's so  relaxing for me to sit in my craft corner and create birthday cards. I really love it to send out some handmade greeting cards for friends and family.

Here's her card:


Milla


Hi, everyone! My name is Milla and I’m from Finland. I’m Mum to two little boys and a wife to one very supportive husband – and I seem to be owned by two beautiful Birman cats! I’m very happy to join the talented Design Team at AAA Birthday.


I have been making cards for some years now and tend to lean towards the clean and simple style. I love colouring with watercolours, Copic markers and coloured pencils and my favourite stamps are floral ones, although I do like cute stamps as well. I’m a part of the Design Team at The Flower Challenge and contribute cards to Penny Black as a Simplicity Sister.

Here's her card:




Hi everyone!
I'm Tina and I live in a small town in the countryside 
in Denmark with my husband, daughter and 2 dogs. 
I'm so super excited to be a part of this design team alongside such talented crafters.
I've been creative all my life and when I discovered card making 3 years ago I was hooked! 
I love coloring with my copics, inkblending and watercoloring with my Distress inks and adding lots of glitter and sparkle.

Here's her card:

Well that must have surely got you all fired up and ready to play along with our challenge - Use Water Colours


Hope to see your birthday card popping up in our gallery!

Game #2 - Use Water Colours

Hello and welcome to a new challenge here at AAA Birthday.

But first can I say the most ENORMOUS thank you to all of you for making our very first ever challenge such a tremendous success. We were hoping that the idea of birthday cards would appeal but were totally bowled over by just how many of you liked it. 

The winners for each challenge will be announced on the third Monday of a month. So for Challenge #1 that will be 17th June.

I also want to say a thank you to all of you who expressed an interest in joining our DT - incredible response! I always think it's such a brave thing to do to put DT after your name in a link up and I have huge respect for each and every one of you. I will be emailing everyone with the results by the end of this week.

And finally on to the next challenge.


We have four fabulous Guest Designers joining us for this challenge who all joined in and left comments and tagged friends on our random instagram draw on. 

An awesome group of talented crafters and you're going to love what they have created with water colours to inspire you.
