WORLD CARD MAKING DAY

Today is the fifth annual World Card Making Day!!  Our design team at Skipping Stones Design is celebrating WCMD by doing a little blog hop, highlighting some of the cards we have been making with some of the Skipping Stones Design stamps.  You should have arrived to my blog from Barb's blog.  When you have finished here, you can head on over to Heathers blog.

I decided to use a new set released this past month called "Wisemen".  I created this very clean and simple card using the camel/wiseman image, star, and one of the sayings.
I wanted the saying to follow the line of the die-cut, so curved the stamp accordingly on the acrylic mounting block...that is one of the benefits of polymer stamps!  I used PTI select white CS for the base, and SU night of navy for the second layer.  The images were all stamped with versamark ink, and embossed with detail gold EP.  A very simple card that one could mass produce for Christmas cards.

I also am going to post another card I made using the "Happy Halloweenie" set by SSD.   With Halloween right around the corner, I have been using this fun little set alot lately...I love the ghost!

I glittered the ghost after stamping and cutting it out.  I stamped the witches hat on black and purple CS, paper piecing the purple hat band.  The designer paper is by Echo Park, and buttons from my stash from a Halloween set of buttons from last year.  I used the swiss dots cuttlebug folder on the CS base which is New Leaf by PTI. The scalloped circle is a Spellbinders die, and the black border is SU scallop border punch.

Hope you have fun on our little hop, and also stop by the SSD store, and check out all the other great stamps sets SSD has to offer!  Again, the next stop on the hop is Heather.   Have a wonderful weekend, and hopefully you have found something on our blogs today to inspire you!

  4. Tammie, I love how you curved the sentiment! I think that's one of the best features of these clear stamps (the best being that you can actually see where you're stamping!) Love how you paper pieced the little witch hat too.
