Happy World Card Making Day!

Happy World Card Making Day!

It’s the first Saturday in October, and you know what that means, right? World Card Making Day! I’ve got a card and coloring sheet to inspire you!

First up the card:

(Both these projects use the Birthday Blossoms set from Stampin’ Up! I’ll link up to all the supplies at the end of the post.)

To create this card, make a card base from a sheet of rich razzleberry, cut a 4″x5.25″ piece from the striped paper in the petals and paisleys paper set, and cut a 3″x4.25″ piece of very vanilla to stamp on. Stamp the leaves from the stamp set using cucumber crush about half way down and slightly to the left on the vanilla cardstock. Then use a water brush to pick up a little of the cucumber crush ink, and draw in a stem. In the bottom right of the piece, stamp a sentiment in rich razzleberry, and then rub the edge of the vanilla cardstock against the razzleberry ink pad to create a thin line of color. Stamp the single flower using the delightful dijon ink on a piece of delightful dijon paper, and then repeat with rich razzleberry ink and paper. Punch out the flowers using the pansy punch. Adhere one directly on the very vanilla cardstock, and one with dimensional adhesive. Adhere the striped paper to the card base, then a line of green washi tape (or scrap of patterned paper or a piece of ribbon,) then the stamped piece goes on top. Add a finishing touch by adding some clear wink of stella to the center of the flowers.

Next the coloring page:

To create the coloring page, you’ll need a large acrylic stamp block. Arrange the single flower, flower cluster, and leaves on the block in a group as tightly as you can manage. Then stamp on whisper white cardstock repeatedly using memento ink. Rotate the block as you need to get as close as you can to the previously stamped images. Fill in the page as much as you like. Heat set the ink with a heat tool if you plan on coloring with water colors. Otherwise, you can start coloring as soon as the ink dries.

Have fun!
