World Card Making Day 2016

Hello!

Today is World Card Making Day!! The best day of the year!!! LOL!! I made today's card many months ago, but figured today was a great day to share it!!

I am entering this into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes!

I made the card with Hero Arts July My Monthly Kit and Add-Ons. While I love the different kits (and others by other companies) I don't have the money to get them monthly, but when I saw this I had to get it!! I have a weakness for ocean creatures, I'm not sure why as I really have no desire to live by the ocean or swim in it!

To start I die cut some blue card stock with a stitched rectangle die and laid Simon Says Stamp Waves Stencil over it. With some sandpaper (yes, I said sandpaper!!) I rubbed off some of the blue.

Next, I die cut a stitched oval from white cardstock. I used a few pigment inks to stamp the octopus and fishes. With black ink, I stamped the sentiment, Need a Hand?

I added the oval to the blue panel with foam dots. Then I added the panel to a white card base. I decided to add a little bit of sparkle so I used a Clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen on the waves I sanded and the fish.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Happy World Card Making Day!!

  1. Awesome octopus, Dana! I'm with you on being smitten with sea creatures; *had* to have the layering seahorse! Happy World Card-making Day. We're off to bike races (a 'special' one that carries into the night) soon, but I'm going to try to get at least 'one' card in.
