World Cardmaking Day

in Card Ideas, World CardMaking Day

I just love World Cardmaking Day at Creating Lasting Memories. First, I have some terrifically talented teachers (try saying that 3 times). They each design their own card and I think they do a wonderful job of creating something that is beautiful but not too difficult for everyone to make in the 40 minute time slot they have. Secondly, it’s just plain fun to get together with like-minded artists and make cards. Plus the food and prizes are pretty nice. And there is the anticipation of Christmas coming – even though it was a beautiful warm fall day.Tthere is nothing like October on the coast.

So here are the cards we made:

chris

This card was designed by Chris Liles. It features Just Rite stamps and a Spellbinder ornament die set.

Cathy

This photo is definitely a little blurry, but the card is beautiful. It was designed by Cathy Verzi. Cathy loves stitching and she used metallic thread and some die cut scallop shapes. I love the center flower with wrapped thread. This looks complicated but it was really easy to do.

Carole

This card was designed by Carole Gardner. It uses some of the newest Bo Bunny Christmas papers and features a nice unique fold. Here is how it looks when you open it up:

Jill

This card was designed by Jill Petersen. Jill has been creating some beautiful cards for the Design Team. This was her first time to teach and she did a great job showing us how to make this angled easel card. It has embossed snowflakes (these don’t show up n the photo) with a large die cut snowflake on top.

Sonja

This card was created by Sonja Woodward using Hero Arts stamps and Elizabeth Crafts glitter. It doesn’t show in the photo, but this card is covered with a fine transparent glitter. Just gorgeous and perfect for Christmas.

candice

I loved this card by Candice. The Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia (die with matching embossing folder) shimmers with gold 3D stamp paint (love this stuff) plus a little glitter. The saying is by Penny Black.

Tirsha

This card was created by Design Team member Trisha Easley.  I love the way she used the enlarged Christmas USPS stamp image (from the stamp package front). And I think the red, blue and gold color palette is a nice look. The border is a Fishers punch; joy is embossed in gold.

Here are all the girls. These photos were taken at the end of a full day of card making and they are still happy and smiling!
