World Card Day

In celebration of world card making day, I participated in many of the card challenges on splitcoast stampers. Here's a card I made that was meant to use a quote as the main image. I love this quote by Voltaire. I used the acrylic smash technique they highlighted on the splitcoast wednesday technique this week. And a paper herringbone background.

This might be my favorite. I set up my sewing machine so that I can get to it easily. I love sewing on my paper projects but my son can be a little agressive with my machine. I'll just have to keep an eye on him.
More sewing. And a lighthouse image. That is one of they types of images I can't resist... I buy every lighthouse I find. This is probably my favorite lighthouse ever... it is an image of the yachina head lighthouse in newport oregon. I've been there several times. The sea birds are so plentiful there. And if you go at the right time, you can whale watch right from the bluff that the lighthouse sits on. That is a wooden washer wrapped with hemp.

I love these butterfly stamps from TAC... they are my favorite ones. I had done that cloisonee technique a while back and they were just sitting on my desk. I added them to this card. I love that paper from the henna club scrap kit. Gorgeous.

More henna paper with another all-time favorite image... the castle from the provential set. This one is pretty simple, actually.

This paper was left over from a card I did earlier this week... so I did this stand up card for a challenge. That stamp set is TAC... it goes so well with this paper.

I really love how this card turned out. I really love the pink flock I used to accent the stamping. This is just luxurious.

Finally, a challenge to use a country's flag as inspiration. The french flag is featured here... with the carte postale stamp set from stampin up to finish it out.

There are my world card day cards. It was fun making all these cards. I should get back to scrapping soon! Or finish a mini book I have in pieces on my desk.
