World Card Making Day was so much fun. I watched a ton of inspirational videos on YouTube and created a number of cards also. I also watched Nina-Marie Trapani’s video called Brushstroke Pattern Stamping Featuring Simon Says Stamp Products. I have the Brushstroke Messages stamp set and couldn’t wait to try out some of the ideas Nina-Maria demonstrated. I also just got some of the Lawn Fawn Mini Ink Cube Sets in the mail and wanted to play with those. In the end, I made 8 cards.
Card One using Hero Arts Color Layering Rooster Ink set. There was some ink transfer when I switched from the red ink to the yellow ink, but I really like the orangey color that it created.
Card two using Lawn Fawn’s Tropical Island Ink Cube Pack. I trimmed the sides of the panel down to allow the grey card base to show on each side.
Card Three using Lawn Fawn’s Candy Story Ink Cube Pack. I die cut the bottom edge of the white panel with a stitched cloud border die for interest.
Card Four using Lawn Fawn’s Gazebo Ink Cube Pack. I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die before adhering it to a grey card base.
Card Five using Simon Says Stamp’s Fresh Fruit Hybrid Ink Pad Cube set. I die cut this panel with a cross stitched rectangle die at an angle. I also added a cute critter that I found in my stash.
Card Six using lawn Fawn’s Pumpkin Patch Ink Cube Pack. I trimmed the panel down and adhered it to a kraft card base.
Card Seven using Lawn Fawn’s Tea Party Ink Cube Pack. I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die. I added two smaller layers with some foam tape. I stamped the green ink on the larger layer to create matching paper. Lastly, I added a few sequins for some sparkle.
Card Eight using Lawn Fawn’s Ice Cream Parlor Ink Cube Pack. I added the small dots for some interest.
Size: A2 cards
Extra Details: I stamped each panel with a stamp from the Brushstroke Messages stamp set. I die cut a few of the panels for interest and variety.
