World Cardmaking Day...a few days late!

Hello everyone! Just popping in to share a few of my creations from one of my favorite holidays....World Cardmaking Day. It happens every year on the first Saturday of October and this year I was able to make a few cards. :)

These cards are all variations of the anniversary card I made for my sister brother-in-law for their anniversary on Sunday. The stamps are all from Hero Arts. I die-cut the white pieces with a Quickutz nesting die colored the images with Copics. I then edged the diecut pieces with a silver leafing pen and then added some ribbon and pearls.

I also added a piece of white cardstock on to the inside of my cards so that I could write on it. I added a bit of stamping to jazz up the inside too. :)

A super sweet card I re-created from the Hero Arts blog. I used lots of Tim Holtz distress ink, perfect pearls, and a sweet cling stamp from Hero Arts to create my cards. I made them for some of my relatives who just lost a family member.

This is one of my card ministry cards. I stamped this fun flower from Hero Arts and then colored it with multiple colors of Tim Holtz Distress ink. I also colored the center with a brown Copic marker. I then added Distress Stickles. The label is made with a super cool label punch from EK Success and stamped. I then used some eyelets and jute to attach it to the page.

This is my other card design for my birthday card ministry. I created the background with a Hero Arts cling background stamp and white embossing powder. I then added lots of colors of distress inks and then sprayed it with a mixture of water and gold Perfect Pearls.I then distressed the edges. I diecut a maple leaf out of some BoBunny Gypsy paper and pop-dotted it up. I just totally love this card and I think it is my favorite one of the batch. :)

I have also been working on a few layouts this week and I will try to upload them later this week.

Until then,
Janeen :)
