World Cardmaking Day

What a fun weekend this was! I managed to do ALL of the World Cardmaking Day challenges in between going to baseball games and laundry. Here are a few:

This was the Limited Supplies challenge. The challenge was to make a card without using either pastel colors or patterned paper. I used SC196 for the layout.

Stamps: A Little Bit of Happiness
Paper: Night of Navy, Kiwi Kiss, Garden Green, PTI White
Ink: Palette Noir Hybrid, Copic Sketch Markers (YG17, YG23+Y06, B99+BV04)
Accessories: Basic Grey mini brads, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder

This card was for the Featured Stamper Challenge, and the featured stamper was our very own SherryLC05!! Here's my CASE of Sherry's beautiful card ( Of course, there were too many awesome cards to choose from, but evenutally I settled on this one.

Stamps: Image by Rubber Romance, Sentiment by My Favorite Things (Call Me set)
Paper: Really Rust, More Mustard, Haiku DP, PTI's Vintage Cream
Ink: Ranger's Walnut Stain, Copic Sketch Markers (YR09, YG17, YR24, YR21, 100, E00)
Accessories: Nestabilities square die cuts, small and large oval punches, more mustard mini brads

I made this card for the Sketch Challenge, and I was glad to have an excuse to use my new scarecrow stamp from RubberCity Rubberworks! I'm going to add the sentiment "If I Only Had A Brain" to the bottom.

Stamps: scarecrow from RubberCity Rubberworks
Paper: Basic Grey (Ambrosia Collection), Pumpkin Pie, PTI Vintage Cream and Kraft
Ink: Palette Noir Hybrid, Copic Sketch Markers (E33, YR21, YR14, E44)
Accessories: pumpkin mini brads

Here's my card for the Technique Lovers Challenge, which was to include a "nested flower" on your card. This is my first time making one of these babies, and let me tell you it was fun! I used Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday 34 sketch for my layout.

Stamps: none
Paper: PTI Sweet Blush, Basic Grey (Infuse Collection)
Ink: none
Accessories: distressing tool, Nestabilities circle punches, glitter brad, pink mini brads

This is my card for Ways to Use It Challenge called TREE-mendous. The challenge was to use a tree stamp when making your card. I happen to love tree stamps, so I had a lot to choose from. I used Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday sketch 54 for my layout.

Stamps: Inkadinkado tree stamp
Paper: PTI White, Summer Sun, Not Quite Navy, Bo Bunny Sun Wash Flower, Aquamarine Dot
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Nestabilities small circle die cut, SU scallop punch, yellow mini brads.

Thanks to everyone who worked to put these challenges together for us! It was a blast!
