More Cards from WCMD Event

Here are some more cards from the World Card Making Day Event I held on October 1st.
The card on the left features the Candy Cane Lane suite of products along with the Layering Circles Framelits.  I used Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and Baker's Twine, along with Real Red 3/4" Stitched Edge Ribbon.  I absolutely LOVE that ribbon!  It is so soft and beautiful to work with, and really makes an impact on projects.  The sentiment is from the Oh What Fun stamp set.  Cardstock colors are Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip and Cherry Cobbler.

The center one features the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper and the Watercolor Wings stamp set.  Cardstock colors are Night of Navy and Whisper White.

The card on the right features the Star of Light stamp set and matching Starlight Thinlits Dies.  This card has a simple black and white motif with a pop of Cherry Cobbler and dazzling Silver Glimmer and Silver Foil Papers.  The Cherry Cobbler star is folded on the score lines made by the die and popped up with 2 Dimensionals layered on top of one another in the center to give it a very 3-D look!

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

World Card Making Day Projects

Here's a look at 3 of the projects we made for World Card Making Day on October 1st.

The first card creates a wood look background using the direct pad to paper technique.  That background started out as Very Vanilla!  The die from the Flourish Thinlits is cut out twice; once in Early Espresso and once in Pumpkin Pie (I know it looks kind of pinkish in the photo, but it really is Pumpkin Pie).  Those pieces were layered together at a slight offset to create the look of depth.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso and is from the stamp set Thankful Thoughts.  My inspiration for this card came from Michelle Zindorf.

The center card was inspired by Sherry Wayt and features the Flourish Thinlits, Detailed Santa Thinlits, and Copper Foil Paper.  The sentiment is from Sheltering Tree.

The last card features the Woodland Embossing Folder, Vintage Leaves and Leaflets Framelits, along with the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set and Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  The Burlap Ribbon adds an earthy touch.  The sentiment is from Guy Greetings.  This card was inspired by two different cards made by Krista Thomas and Sandra Santiago.  I found their cards on Pinterest and used a combination of ideas from each card to create this one.
