Another World Card Making Day!

WCMD2014

I am still in shock that October is here already! With that being said it is also world cardmaking day again.

In honor of world cardmaking day I stole a few minutes of time to whip up three cards. I used some of my favorite techniques to make these cards and I am very pleased with how they turned out.

The favorite techniques that I used were stamping (oh how I love stamping), embossing (don’t we all just have tons of embossing folders lying around), and color shine (is color shine a technique, maybe it’s called misting).

Anyways I made a cute little Christmas card. This card is only 4×4 and I love how cute and small it is. This just might be the card that I send out for Christmas. I embossed the silver little strip of paper and stamped the ornament with the October stamp of the month and cut it with the Cricut art philosophy cartridge.

A thanksgiving card. This card is an A2 sized card and I dont usually make cards in landscape format but it was the only way the stamp would fit. Then I stamped the leaves on the inside and embossed a strip of orange paper with the pumpkin embossing folder and adhered it to the inside.

And last but not least a Love card in honor of WCMD and operation write home. This card is also A2 sized and I embossed the silver piece of paper with my heart embossing folder. Next I used one of my project life watercolor cards from the Heidi Swapp line. I stamped the inside of the card with Love from the September stamp of the month, which I think is by far one of my favorite stamp sets.

Cute Digital Stamp Makes a Great Card

Here I am with my Party Time Tuesdays Challenge with a digital stamp from Digi Garden. The Digi Garden has fantastic stamps and they are all so cute! I wish I could buy them all. I kept it pretty simple for this card. I colored my stamp with some Sharpie and Bic Markers because I wanted to see how it would turn out. I was pleasantly surprised with how well my cute little stamp came out.

I wanted my stamp to be the focal point of the card so I created a standard A2 card (4¼x5½) and created a background by trimming purple card stock and cream card stock and layering them as the base of the card. I cut out my digital stamp and adhered her to the card. I then stamped my sentiment in the lower corner and left it alone.

My card was a simple no fuss card that didn’t take to long to create. I like creating clean and simple cards and layouts, as if you haven’t noticed :).

What I like about this card is that it is easy enough for me to create a few of them at one time and stamp different sentiments on it so that I can then ship them off to card care connection or operation write home.

Do you send any of your cards to a charity? Let me know in the comments I am always looking for other places that I could send cards to.
