WCMD 2017 Smooshing Challenge

I did a little smooshing with reinkers on acetate~pressed on watercolor cardstock.

You have to look past the chunky glitter to see it though, I went a little overboard with it. ;)

WCMD CAS Challenge

CAS cards are my favorite~

dies: Winnie & Walter In a Word: Friend Cutaway/True Multifaceted Border Cutaways, Spellbinders Classic Circles  other:Pebbles Paper Pad Basics 2

This card was especially easy, because I used a ready made cardbase.

As for the border~I've noticed that shiny paper seems to cut the best with this multifaceted cutaway~especially if you have well loved cutting plates like I do. :) 

WCMD 2017/CAS Challenge with Heather H.

 Probably the biggest hurdle, is actually sticking this in the mail.

 I'm working on that~

WCMD Variations Challenge

I'm still cracking away at the week long WCMD Challenges at Winnie & Walter.

WCMD 2017/ Variations Challenge With Shay

 motivated me to get a twofer project done~Christmas and Birthday!

Here are my cards~

This is the first one I made.

 stamps: Winnie & Walter Scenery:It's A Wonderful Pennant  dies: Winnie & Walter In a Word:Peace Cutaway

I bulked up on the Cutaway by using a thin cardboard layer under two cardstock layers.

It wasn't until I went to take a photo, that I realized my trees could also be party hats.

I stamped another~this time tilting the Christmas tree stars over so they appear as tassels~

stamps: Winnie & Walter Scenery:It's A Wonderful Pennant  dies: Winnie & Walter In a Word:
Happy Cutaway, Spellbinders Classic Circles

I'm enjoying these crafty challenges, thank you Winnie & Walter!

Happy World Card Making Day!!!

stamps: Winnie & Walter True/In Bloom: Eva's Favorite Flowers  dies: Winnie & Walter In a Word: Hugs Cutaway, My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Circles

Here I used the multifaceted circle from True and dots from Eva's Favorite Flowers to create an abstract background for the diecut sentiment.

I added an interesting border of "bubbles" because I can. ;)

 Well, I may need to finish off this day with this post, because I think my family misses me and we have shows on DVR to catch up on. ;)
