World Card Making Day 2019

Hello -

Today I hope to spend lots of time making cards.  I have lots of challenges I want to participate in. I pre cooked food yesterday and it only needs warming up, so hubs won't have to fend for himself today.

Right now I have my list of watch later you tube videos playing so I have "company" making cards today.  Later on, I'll turn on the college football.

Since I hope to make a lot of cards to day, I am going to post several challenges and cards in one post together.


First up Freshly Made Sketches  and Inspired by Challenge.




I stamped with memento tuxedo black and colored with copics, then overstamped with versafine onyx black to make crisp lines.  The sentiment was also added with the versafine.

  


Next up The Card Concept and Watercooler Wednesday Challenge . Watercooler Wednesday calls for  feminine anything goes, and the Card Concept has the graphic below.


The striped panel is an Avery Elle diecut, the flowers are from Altenew and the sentiment is from CTMH.


Its a beautiful day outside, so my window is open and my photos are in front of my view.

Are you getting a chance to make some cards for WCMD?

Thanks for stopping by.

Cute mouse and all the little pumpkins he lost, hopes he discovers them before they get left behind!
Your bright blue and yellow card is quite stunning as well.

My card making day? Didn't go quite as expected but I did have success on one!

Laurel said...

That mouse though! Adorable! Thanks for playing at Inspired By.

It sounds like you have a good set up in your craft room. Cozy and fun, and you were all prepared for WDMD. I just love that little harvest mouse, then scroll down and see those pretty yellow flowers, a favorite color. Love the die for the background, too.

What great use of the sketch on the first card, Cat! Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

Love those bold stripes with the delicate flowers on your second card, great colours too. I must remember that overstepping technique, it makes such a difference to the finished look. I have actually been making some cards so I will try to ensure I find time to post them xx

Hi Cat! Fun and beautiful too! So happy to see the gorgeous floral card in the Card Concept lineup. Of course the sweet mouse carrying a pumpkin is beautifully colored and just darling. Love the layout with the falling leaves. Looks like you enjoyed WCMD!
