Hi everyone - hope you're enjoying a wonderful WCMD! I was up early working on parts of my WCMD card, then ran off to a Hallmark ornament premiere at a local shop. Added a few ornaments to my collection, then hurried home to finish my card. Here goes:
Shari Carroll's use of white on kraft so I tried it on my burlap background piece. The stamp is from Stamper's Anonymous - a Studio 490 set called Funky Flower Art. Besides the burlap bg, there are some fun flower pieces. The brown woodgrain paper, oddly enough, is from Teresa Collins' Christmas Cottage paper line; I'm just loving that whole set!
The globe is a Hero Arts design for Silhouette. I cut a background circle and covered it with Hero Arts Neon Blue ink, then stamped the Envelope Liner background using Salty Ocean Distress Ink. BTW, did you hear Tim Holtz's announcement that the seasonal Distress Inks are now permanent additions to the Distress Ink family? Yay!! The globe was cut on Hero Arts Snow Layering Paper and colored with Distress Markers (Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Scattered Straw, Crushed Olive, Old Paper, Picket Fence). I cut the banner on the Silhouette too (Sophie Gallo banner labels). I used a "happy" from a Hero Arts sentiment and the WCMD was stamped with Hero Arts monogram stamps from an old clear set. I finished off with a little star to show where I live in the world :).
Hope you're having a crafty day on WCMD! I'm off to check out the Operation Write Home Blog Hop and other online events. I already posted my card to the fun event our Hero Arts Flickr Group is having. Check it out!
