Oldie but a Goodie

I’ve been trying to go back and work on some old classes that I purchased from @sctmagazine . This is from I believe the WCD online class from 2017 or 2018. We were creating a card using a @pagemaps sketch and a card created by Allison Okamitsu. @nicepeoplestamp .

Her example was a Christmas card but I decided to go with a birthday one using the Perfect Pairings stamp set from @stampinup along with their Gorgeous Grunge.

I used @ranger_ink distress inks in peacock feathers, twisted citron and picked raspberry for the watercolored background, as well as some @ginakdesigns black onyx ink. The stencil from Stampin Up was paired with some @heidiswapp metallic white texture paste and @studiokatia wedding bells sequins.

It’s been awhile since I did any mixed media cards and this one was super quick and easy to put together.

Entered into these challenges:

Crafter’s Castle: Anything Goes

A Bit More Time To Craft: Anything Goes

Die Cut Divas: Watercoloring

Creative Craft Cottage: No Patterned Paper

Love to Craft: Anything Goes

WCMD with MFT – Challenge #4

 

 

Ok, for the 4th challenge with My Favorite Things, it’s called Make & Mail.

Challenge 4: MAKE & MAIL

Make a card. Mail a card. Do it now and don’t delay. OK, OK, you don’t have to rush out the door right this second but really, make it, address it, stamp it, and pinky-swear that you’ll drop it in the mailbox the first chance you get! We trust you.

Make a card and mail it out to someone!  That’s really the purpose of making a card anyway right?? Luckily, I am in a swap where I have to mail out a card every Monday for the next 12 weeks, so this will be going out to my swap partner Pansy!

This card was made from left overs I brought back from my card class last week.  We were doing some stamping and I had a bit left over which I turned into a small one sheet wonder.  I managed to get 5 cards from a little 4.5 x 8 sheet. I really liked how this turned out.  The DP is all stamped from the Stampin Up set – Painted Harvest, and the woodgrain is a stamp as well.  Then I fussy cut one of the flowers and some leaves from the sheet.  I can’t remember which set the sentiment comes from.  I hope she likes it!

I hope you like it too.

WCMD with MFT #3 By the Numbers

Ok here’s challenge # 3 for My Favorite Things, World Card Making Day challenge.

Challenge 3: BY THE NUMBERS

Create a card that features a number in a prominent way. It can be a die-cut number, a stamped number, or even the representation of a number (five cute frogs for a favorite five-year-old’s birthday, perhaps?)

 

Here is the Silver Anniversary card I made (Pinterest Inspired).  I really like how it turned out.  It allowed me to blow the dust off of some of my older embossing folders.

The inside just says congratulations, Happy Anniversary!

I just embossed the panel and popped it up with pop dots.  I cut the 25 out of glitter paper with my Cricut and then added just a few pearls to finish it off.

Hope you like it!

WCMD with MFT – Challenge #2

Ok, here is challenge #2 for My Favorite Things World Card Making Day challenge.  

 

Challenge 2: DIE-NAMICS DESIGNS

Our noon challenge is all about die cutting. Put your stamps and inks away for a bit because you won’t be needing them for this challenge. Create a card that features 100% die cutting for a chance to win our noon prize.

Enter your card by 10 pm EDT on Sunday, October 8, 2017.

Winners will be announced Monday, October 9, 2017.

Ok luckily you don’t have to have MFT products to play along (because for some reason I don’t own any..oh the horror!).

I made a simple thank you card for this one.

The background die is from Taylored Expression and the Thank you I cut 5 times and layered together.  The die is from YNS. I also added some glossy accents to the sentiment.  The DP is just from my stash.

I hope you like it.  I’ll be back later on with challenges 3 & 4 🙂

World Cardmaking Day!

Happy WCMD everyone!

 

This weekend I am playing along with some challenges set up by My Favorite Things!

This is their first challenge:

Challenge 1: ROYGBIV

Let’s kick the day off with COLOR. Your first challenge of the day is to create a card featuring the rainbow — either a literal rainbow or, by simply integrating the colors of the rainbow into your design in any way you see fit.

I really had to think about how I was going to do this one.  So I decided on stamping! I pulled out my Pun Intended set by Stamping UP, because I thought the camera would be perfect to stamp in rainbow colors.

The great thing about this challenge is that you don’t have to use My Favorite Things products to play along (which is good because I don’t own any but would sure like to win one of their gift certificates to the store that they are giving to random challenge participants!).

So without further adieu, here is my card! I really like how it turned out!  I just added a view of the violet sequins to pair up with the orange on this card.

Don’t forget to play along for your chance to win!

 

World Cardmaking Day

Welcome to all of you joining me as we celebrate World Card Making Day 2011.  I hope that you are visiting from the Paper Crafts Magazine giant worldwide blog hop to help celebrate!

Today I want to share with you some Christmas cards that I made while attending the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival here in Calgary last weekend.  It was sponsored by Canadian Scrapbooker and wow! what a time we had! It was so much fun and a big thank you to CS and all the great sponsors that made it such an experience!

While I was there I visited one of my favorite online stores who had a booth set up, Scrapshotz based out of Calgary here.  Sandy always has such great product and her prices are awesome.  I managed to pick up a card kit on sale (as it was last years product from Basic Grey) and created these cards…WOW..you really should check out her card kits, because I made these cards and still have tonz of product left over that I am currently working with.  I did add some embellishments that I already had, but you can make some stunning cards with just what is in the kit! Every month on the forum, the DT debuts a new kit and some projects for inspiration! While you are there, join the forum and participate in the awesome challenges, check out tutorials and meet a great bunch of ladies.  I’m excited to be attending one of Sandy’s crops in October! yay!

So here are the cards that I made…

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy these cards.  Just for fun to celebrate WCM day, I am giving away some candy…a surprise of scrappy goodies.  All you have to do is

1) become a follower

2) leave me a comment telling me either how you are spending WCMD or your favorite cropping experience

**international participants welcome**

ENJOY THIS AWESOME DAY!
