WCMD 2015 Challenge with Winnie & Walter: Day 3

Today is the third day I am playing with Winnie and Walter Challenges on their blog. You still can join their challenges until Sunday, October 11th, 2015. Read the detail of these challenges here.

This is the card I link up today at these challenges:

Winnie & Walter - WCMD Challenge

On this card, I stamped those flowers and leaves from The Big, The Bold and Extras stamp set using using Faber Castell Mix & Match – Stamper’s Big Brush Pens(*). Then I stamped the sentiment and banner from The Big, The Bold and Happy stamp set using using Faber Castell Mix & Match Stamper’s Big Brush Pen set of 3 – Gold(*). These Faber Castell Stampers Big Brush Pens are amazing! They do not bleed through my card. They are high quality India Ink that you can apply directly on any kind of stamps.

I finished my card using Sequins Assortment Gold from CTMH. They already have glue dots and ready to use on the project.

Thansk for visiting today!

This card I enter for these challenges:

I have fun creating the background with stamping, embossing and watercoloring. The sentiment I stamped and embossing on a piece of vellum paper. I found this clear embossing poweder at Hobby Lobby a few months ago and love the result using it with the pigment ink.

Celebrating World Card Making Day 2014

Today is World Card Making Day! I shared a quick DIY Note Card set earlier today here. And I have been having so much fun catching up with so many bloggers who share their amazing handmade cards!

Do you know why they call it World Card Making Day? Here is the background why from WCMD website:

“World Card Making Day began in 2006 as National Card Making Day. Founded by Paper Crafts magazine to bring card makers together at the beginning of the busiest card-making season of the year, it was first held on October 7, 2006. The initial celebration involved the Paper Crafts magazine audience only; however, due to the positive response it received and the worldwide popularity of card making, the holiday became known as World Card Making Day from then on.

Celebrating its ninth year in 2014, World Card Making Day is celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October. It’s a day for the card-making community—hobbyists, retailers, and manufacturers—to unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card making.”

To celebrate this special day for card-makers, I have little giveaway today with some goodies from Close To My Heart products:
