World Card-Making Day - The Card(s)

Monday, 7 October 2013

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all well and had a nice crafty World Card-Making Day?  I did a bit of crafting so was happy with that.

I was supposed to post this yesterday but it was just one of those days and I never got it done, but this is for the new challenge at Eclectic Ellapu - speaking of which, I hope you're all joining in with the fabulous treasure hunt with fantastic prizes to be won every day throughout October?!  You can read all about it on the blog.  Our new challenge, hosted by the lovely Yvonne, for this week is...

Celebrate Autumn!

So as World Card-Making Day occurs every autumn, I thought I'd combine the two!  We have a swap every year on our forum and this is my card...

The image I used is so appropriate for the occasion (in my opinion!) so I had to use it, its a Magnolia stamp; Stamping Tilda, one of the limited edition ones from last year and I coloured her with the following copics: skin;E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair;E47,44,43. Clothes;YG97,95,93,YR24,23,21,14. Stamp;E37,35,33,V04,000.

The papers are Basic Grey, Pyrus.  The sentiment was computer generated using the font Reisling.  I have used spellbinder oval and scalloped oval for the image and Memory box; Chloe stem, Cheery Lynn Designs; Princess tree and mini fanciful flourish for the arrangement as well as a Spellbinders nested bird die.  The flowers, pearls and ribbon are from my stash.

The inside has been finished to compliment the front with a Wild Rose Studio sentiment.

So please pop over to Eclectic Ellapu to join in with our challenge and also don't forget the treasure hunt!!

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

I made a card for World Card-Making Day last year, but I never got around to blogging it as it was just after my accident and as time went on it was too out of sync.  So I thought I'd tag it onto the bottom of this years just so as I can say I blogged it!

Here it is...

I used the same stamp that I used this year and coloured her with the following copics (yes, I still have the details!): skin;E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair;E49,39,35,31. Top;YG07,05,03,BG49,45,11. Frills;R39,37,27. Stamp; BV04.

These papers are also Basic Grey but this time from the Luscious paper pad.  The sentiment was computer generated and I stroked out the Day and replaced it with month because I was so late in sending it (but it was difficult to do on time because of my arm being in a sling!).  The ribbons and flower were from my stash.

For the inside I used another Magnolia - Longing Tilda, and coloured her with the same copics as above.

Here's a close-up.

So there you have it, two cards for the price of one!
I'm not entering this one into any challenges as it's a year old!

Last reminder - don't forget the treasure hunt!!

Thanks for looking!
