Happy World Card Making Day! I hope you spent at least part of your day making a card or two or even more!
Personally I created six cards today. With the exception of one, the other five cards had had elements lying around my Creation Station for a looooong time. I thought today would be the best day ever to finally finish up a few of them.
Today I will share three of the cards with you. All three of them were created using the same stamp set, a really oldie, but definitely a goodie. It is called Feathered Hope and I think the year on the set was 2002. Eighteen years ago! Wow! And I still adore it. The images are truly timeless. And with the addition of the Stampin' Blends to our product array, they are perfect for coloring with the Blends.
The first card, featuring a little bird on a gourd house, was colored in the following Stampin' Blends: Dark Soft Seafoam, Dark Crumb Cake, Light Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Light So Saffron, Light Cajun Craze and Light Seaside Spray.
It was trimmed with a die from Stitched So Sweetly (page 179).
The next card features a bird perched on the handle of a basket of bright autumn apples. The Stampin' Blends used to color in this scene are: Light Mossy Meadow, Light Balmy Blue, Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Light and Dark Petal Pink, Light and Dark Real Red, Light and Dark Cajun Craze, Light Old Olive, Dark Pineapple Punch, Light Daffodil Delight, Light Poppy Parade and Light Cinnamon Cider.
Framing the bird and basket is the large circle from the Stitched Shapes dies (page 183).
Finally, we have a little bird perched atop a broken terra cotta pot, proud of the worm in his mouth. Stampin' Blends used to color this guy are: Light Old Olive, Light Balmy Blue, Light and Dark Soft Suede, Ivory, Light Crumb Cake, Dark Petal Pink and Light and Dark Cajun Craze.
The tag for the bird was cut with one of the dies from the retired Bonanza Dies.
Following are close-ups of the Stampin' Blends coloring.
A bow of metallic copper cord (left over from a previous Paper Pumpkin kit!) was added to each of the cards. The background Designer Series Paper was from a package I'd purchases from the Clearance Rack. I love the Clearance Rack!
I purposely left all three of these cards without sentiments, because I feel they would be appropriate for so many occasions, even masculine events. When the time comes, it will be so easy to add a sentiment to the inside of the card.
Now, share with us how you spent World Card Making Day.

Beautiful cards, I like that you've made some sentiment free cards, they could be perfect for So many different occasions.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Julie. I often keep my cards sentiment free for just that reason. Also, I feel that sometimes adding a sentiment to the front of the card spoils the artistry of it.Delete
Thank you so much, Dixie!ReplyDelete
