WORLD CARD MAKING DAY 2nd - 6th OCTOBER 2011


Hello crafters and welcome to The World Cardmaking day blog hop on this the 2nd October.
This is a 5 day blog hop with 10 different participants each day hosted by Gill of CBGM

As it is World Cardmaking Day the participants of the hop are donating cards to Gill McCall for charity. Plus in the line up each day you will find a UK crafting celebrity taking part among us mere mortal crafters !!!

Ok then on with the hop - if you have arrived here in blogger land from  Becky  and want to hop along then you're on the right track and I hope you enjoy what you are about to see, not only from me but from all the participants - each day remember to leave  comments as there will be  BIG blog candy from Gill and from sponsors of the hop, for what Gill thinks is the most interesting comment and she will announce the winner 2 days after the hop closes.

                                                                    For this hop I have made 4 cards









For the first one I have used a pearlised cream base card,  added some spotty paper to the bottom half and covered the join with white glittered ribbon. The flower was punched twice and joined with a pink brad. The flourish was cut with my Silhouette and sponged with Tattered Rose DI. The sentiment is an old cd stamp.

















My 2nd card is a download that took my fancy from Craftsuprint. I have decoupaged it and added an organza bow to the shoe. 


















The 3rd card is has been printed out from a Joanna Sheen RHS cd and then decoupaged. I matted on to green mirri card and added a vintage ribbon bow. The sentiment was printed on the computer and bowed out to cover the stems.
















My last card uses free digi leaf paper from TLC and a stamp from Forever Friends which I coloured with promarkers. The bow is vintage ribbon and the sentiment is an old cd one.








Well I hope you like what I have come up with. Now your next hop stop is http://lilodesigns.blogspot.com/ where you will find another wonderful creation from Alethea

Dont forget to come back for day 2 in this 5 day hop.  Thanks for hopping and see you tomorrow:)

Wow Valerie! LOVE all of these cards! That first one just takes my breath away and then the next one comes and does it again, but that third one with the carnations - I just love that one - those are my favorite flowers and I love how you decoupaged them - I have got to try that! The bottom one is just adorable. So many great techniques you used! Thanks for the inspiration. Hugs
