World Cardmaking Day Extravaganza Inspiration

Hello!  Today I wanted to share with you some of the cards I created while participating in the World Cardmaking Day Extravaganza that my Treasure Stampers team members put together this past Saturday.  The following thank you cards that I am sharing with you were cased from one of my team members, Kevin Estey.  I love the odd-shaped piece of designer series paper that you get and the best part is there is no wasting paper.  If you take a 6x6 piece of designer series paper and you measure 1-1/4" around the edges of the paper and then line up to cut across the page twice (you have to hold the 2 pieces together to make the second cut, but it doesn't have to be exact, just needs to be close) and you don't waste a bit of paper!  And you get a really cool shape to place on the front of your card.  I did most of them portrait style, but they look really neat landscape as well.

For this card, I started with a Bumblebee base (one of the 2020 - 2022 In Colours) and added a Cinnamon Cider layer (another one of the 2020 - 2022 In Colours) after running it through the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.  I then took a piece of 6x6 designer series paper from the Flowers for Every Season collection, cut it into the funky shapes and glued it to the front of my card.  I used the sentiment from the Many Mates stamp set and then die cut it using the Stitched Nested dies.


For this card, I just changed up the colours a little bit.  I started with  Just Jade (another 2020 - 2022 In Colour - I was on a roll with the In Colours!) for my card base and added a Bumblebee layer to the front.  For this card, I ran the layer through the Old World Embossing Folder.  You can actually see the detail in the picture, so I'm sure you can imagine how detailed the actual card is!  Such a neat textured look!  I then took a different patterned piece of the Flowers for Every Season designer series paper, chopped it into the wedges.  Again, the same sentiment from the Many Mates stamp set is used and this time I layered it with a Just Jade stitched nested die cut piece.  For the bow, that is the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  I know, you're thinking it must be past my bedtime and I can't see colours anymore.  I coloured it using a sponge dauber and the Just Jade ink.  Normally, I would use the Stampin' Blends to colour, but I don't have this particular shade just yet, so I improvised.  I found that the inked version of the ribbon does not dry as well as the blends, so be prepared to colour your fingers as well when you're tying your bows!

I hope you enjoyed my projects today.  I have a few thank you cards that I need to get in the mail this week, so you have been saved from the impending Christmas projects for another day lol!  If these projects have inspired you, I encourage you to watch for details regarding our next Team stamping event which will be held in the New Year.  As I find out details, I will certainly share them with you in the hopes that you can join us for a day of stamping and creativity.  If you are motivated to create these projects on your own, please check out the Supply List below and if you need anything, please either contact me to place an order or just click on one of the images and it will redirect you to my online store where you can shop away!
