I always like to play along with Ellen Hutson's CLASSroom on world card making day, and today I made time to play along with 4 of their 5 challenges.
First up is WCMD 2012 challenge 1 with Julie Ebersole. Julie's challenge is to create a holiday greeting. I made mine pretty simple by using an embossing folder from Sizzix's Thank You set #5 and matted it with cherry cobbler cardstock, while stamping it with a Christmas greeting from G Studio. The ornament was stamped with Versamark, embossed with gold ep, and punched with a SU! ornament punch. I added some Viva pearl pen accents and a piece of gold twine. I don't know the name of the stamp set, as I used it at a friend's house:)
This is the card I came up with for challenge 3. I used another image by Stampology and colored it with Copics. The dsp is from the BoBunny Crazy Love collection. I punched some small hearts in the "banners" since this is a love card, The ribbon was a gift from a friend. I used a SB labels 18 die to cut the image, and outlined it with a marker before cutting.
WCMD 2012 challenge 5: Trend Watch Challenge by Julia Stainton. I used one of my favorite trends in cardmaking today - the chevron. I just love the look of those jagged stripes and can't seem to get enough of it. I also love hexagons and plaid dsp too. I used a Hero Arts stamp set done in navy ink, and also used an EK punch for the border. The dsp is Bazzill Basics Huckleberry Pie, and I used real red for the sentiment tag and mat for the clock face. Quick and easy, but a great card to send to OWH.
That's going to do it for me for world card making day. I'd like to give challenge #4 a go but I'm not going to have any sunshine to take photos tomorrow as we have rain in the forecast, but I'll see what I can do!
I hope you made some cards for this special day, and thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
