More World Card Making Day Cards!
Here's some more cards I made for the WCMD party over on SCS!! Our cards for this celebration (if we choose ) are going to be sent to Operation Write Home for our troops!! Yay!! I love that!! This one is for Crafty Secrets WCMD Challenge! You gotta use dimension and Pop on the card, and if you use any of their products on the card, you get a free gift from them! This is a tiny 4"x 2-3/4" note card from SU. I used a cute little Kewpie Doll image from their Kewpies set and added a little Santa Hat for the "dimension" requirement. He/she is colored with PrismaColor pens. I just looove this Kewpie set!! I have used it for so many cards and occasions, but never for Christmas before! The sentiment is Inkadinkadoo from Costco and the bit of sparkle is Stickles! This one is my Ornament Card for the WCMD Magnolia Challenge! You had to either make an ornament or a card with an ornament. I was putting this challenge off thinking it was a tough one but this ended up being the easiest one to do! I love the concept of putting a real ornament on the card! The little snowman is part of a pack of miniature ornaments by "A Tree for Me" from HL. They are flat-backed, so the adhere easily to the card! The recipient can remove the snowman and use it as a decoration or ornament for themselves! I love that! The blue card base is actually totally sparkly CS from DCWV Glittered Winter Card Stack. I used Nestibilities to make the window and the ribbon is Michael's Holiday Bow-Tique. Super easy peasy! Then I made this card for the Stamping Bella WCMD challenge! This one took some thought because the challenge was to create a card to show what you and your girlfriends do to have some fun! And, we had to throw in some some 1980's-ish colors and/or DP! Usually when I get together with my GFs, it's to make cards and/or to EAT!! So I used this cute little "Catie Cupcake" image by Poppy Stamps (Note to Julia -- you know this is your fault!! LOL!!) that has a little munchkin with a cupcake! Yum!! And as for the 2nd part of the challenge to use an 80's color palette, that really threw me! I lived thru the 80s, but I have no style now and I had no style then!! So I Googled and found this graphics website to figure out what colors to use. Turns out the colors were very similar to all the colors in my fav "Me and My Big Ideas" Fashion District DP pad, so that's the DP I went with. Yay!! Another challenge done! So I did all but two of the 11 challenges plus the Inspiration and Featured Stamper challenge this weekend! Whew!! I'll spend tomorrow's blogging time checking out what everyone else was able to do this weekend! I had a blast!! TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
