World Cardmaking Day

Well, it has been World Cardmaking Day today and this has led to me becoming slightly distracted from some of the tasks I was meant to be doing!

Anyway, Jenny challenged us to make a black and white card by lunchtime (I'll share a better picture of this tomorrow) and then a tag or tags by 6pm.

These are the tags I made:

These ones were inspired by Pinterest again.

I've used the Festival of Trees stamp set and stamped 3 of each of the trees I've chosen, punched them, scored them in the middle and stuck them together.

I used the colours of Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo.

I then used the 'to/from' stamp in the same set and cut out using a framelit from the Curvy Keepsake set, with a plain card one to match.

Gold and silver ribbon added through a punched hole and finished with some of the Bright Sequins.

I then made 3 tags using the Snow Friends set which is so cute.

Trying to stay away from the comfort zone of Christmas red and green I used the current set of in colours in various forms of ink and card.

The Scallop Tag Topper punched was used and the images cut out using the matching framelits.

The sentiment is a lovely stamp from a hostess set which matches the Washi Label punch.

These were finished with gold cording trim.

It was fun to see what everyone came up with through the day - even if I still can't see my desk!!

  1. Didn't realise it was card making day but I did actually make one yesterday. The 3D tags are ingenious and the little snow friends are so cute. Great departure from the traditional colours too. Will look out for the black and white one.
