World Card Making Day 2016


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.

  2. That octopus looks so cool and I love the stenciled background!
