World Cardmaking Day!

It's World Cardmaking Day today with lots of great activities around the world and around the web.

I had a chance to get a little inky this morning and made two cards.

I played around with Stampin Ups Inspired by Nature set which was stamped onto a background using some Distress Inks and Hero Arts Large Fabric Design and Friend Definition stamps.

For my second card I played around with distressing and collage-type stamping. I think I went a little overboard with the distressing...
I distressed with Tim Holtz inks, a distress tool and added a few sprinkles of water drops.

The postcard image is a digi from River City Rubber Works and is called Antique Leaf Postcard. The rest of the images, the Hydrangea, Butterfly and Sentiment are all from Hero Arts.

I hope you get a little inky celebrating World Card Making Day!


  1. Sue, I love them both! Your idea of a silhouette of the coneflowers is wonderful, especially against that gorgeous blue. And no, I don't think you went overboard on the distressing on the 2nd card - I think it's equally perfect! Happy WCMD!

  2. I really like the postcard one it is beautiful.

  3. Sue - I can't quite get my head around how you did the grading of the friend definition background. It's stunning!
    And the post card is a beauty too -not too much distressing at all.

  4. Happy WCMD to you, Sue! Love both cards! That first one is so beautiful with the pretty blue shades and silhouette stamping. I think the second card is lovely too. Not overboard at all with the distressing - beautiful vintage collage! Hope you are well!

  5. OMG!!! Nice cards, but I especially LOVE the second one--very vintage and classy!!!!!! Love, love, LOVE it!!! :D

  6. These two cards are GORGEOUS! I don't you went Distress Inks overboard!! Not at all! So perfectly done, Sue!

  7. These are fantastic, Sue! I especially love the second one with all the layers of stamping and distressing.

  8. Looks adorable!
    Have a look on my blog - hope it's OK with you!?
