I’m here to inspire you … then let out your creativity and make a card for your loved ones.
First and foremost I want to send a BIG THANK YOU to all of you who joined me yesterday for my All Day “Virtual” World Cardmaking Event … I had so much fun. The best part were the cards that we made together, and I’m here to share those with all today.
You can’t do World Cardmaking Day without using the World of Good Suite …
You will simply fall in love with this beautiful suite … it’s perfect for scrapbookingyour travels and making beautiful cards! We stepped out of the box yesterday and created Christmas cards with this amazing suite. Let’s begin with the “Gold” card …
We began with the beautiful World of Good Specialty Designer Series paper … this is part of the entire suite or can be purchased along with the bundle (but you’re going to want it all!)It’s hard to see but the designer paper has a Gold Foil mat behind it.
Next, we sponged Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz onto Whisper White Cardstock and die cut with the detailed globe die. These were then glued onto Gold Foil paper to tie in the gold in the World of Good Specialty Designer Series paper.
Once weattached our “world” we wanted to make them look like Christmas Ornaments so we added bows, using the Old Olive ribbon from the”All the Trimmings” Ribbon Combo pack. This added a cute touch to the card and gave us the “ornament” look we were going for.
Next up… our greeting which comes from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. I embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of scrap paper that was previously watercolored from my Technique Tuesday LIVE on Facebook. My stampin’ friends and I were very happy with the way this turned out, so we moved onto our next card ….
We started this card with our globes … Stamped with Tuxedo Black Momento Ink and sponged with Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz. Then they were die cut with the coordinating dies from the bundle.Wink of Stella was added on the sponged areas … and then they were embossed with Clear Embossing powder … WOW!!
For the backgound we choose the Old World Paper embossing folder …
The Old World Paper embossing folder is included in the product “suite” … I will have the suite and the bundle along with the other products listed below for you. During our stamping session, I let the attendees of my presentation pick out the background color … the winner was Old Olive …
I had to share this angle with you so you could see that the Wink of Stella shows through beautifully with the clear embossing … it also makes the black stand out! They are stunning! To keep with the ornament them, I used the Black Bakers Twine that was included with the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit!
The greeting comes from Itty Bitty Christmas and was die cut using the cirlcle dies. The little banner behind it was hand cut and used to pop the greeting.
I hope you enjoyed these two beautiful cards the I created with the help of my stampin’ friends on World Cardmaking Day. It was a blast!!
