World Card Making Day!


It's rainy and dreary here, a perfect day to stay in and play at our craft!  Hope you are able to do the same!  I have several cards I want to make for some challenges, so I'll just add to this during the day.

Here is my first, made for the Hero Arts Blog challenge this weekend:

World Card Making Day

supplies: red and white cardstock, The Paper Studio "Classic Snowflakes Blue" dp, Hero Arts CL558 Snowflake Ornaments, versamark ink and white embossing powder, CL462 Magic of Christmas, Memento Tuxedo Black ink and clear embossing powder, K5242 Big Pine Bough, Memento Cottage Ivy ink, glue pen and glitter, red embroidery floss


And a tag for the 25th Scramble at Hero Arts Flickr, hosted by Arlene:

tag for Scramble #25

supplies: tag, Hero Arts E3375 Fall Memories, CL338 Be Yourself, CG152 Two Birds, S5507 Envelope Pattern, Anita's Teddy Bear brown ink, lots of distress inks


I started this next one this morning, but had to put it aside to do the Scramble above.  It's for the Skipping Stones Design blog, using my new set of stamps that I received from Kryssi this week.  It's the first inking - I just made a simple 1-layer card, starting with the acrylic block technique to make the background rectangle, defined a little more with a blue colored pencil to bring out the blue in the bird.  Then I just added some heart buttons and a twine bow.  I love all the elements in this musical set and I know I'll use the sentiments often!

HeartSong

supplies: blue and ivory parchment card stock, Skipping Stones Designs "Heartsong" stamps, antique linen, tea dye and vintage photo distress inks, Memento Rich Cocoa ink, blue prismacolor pencil
