World Cardmaking Day – Pinkies Blog Hop


Welcome to another Pinkies Blog Hop! As it’s World Card Making Day today, we hope everyone will get some time to craft, and we’ve created some lovely projects to help inspire you to create your own beautiful card. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

If you have arrived from Katy’s blog, I hope you are having a great weekend.  I made this card recently and it was pretty simple and straightforward to make so I thought that it was perfect to share today to encourage all abilities to join in World Cardmaking Day!

Garden in Bloom by Stampin Up

I stamped the large Congrats sentiment from the Bravo stamp set in versa mark and heat embossed the image using white embossing powder.  I then stamped the flowers in varying colours and then simply rubbed any excess off the embossed word with a tissue.  I stamped a few small dots using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set and added a sequin or two.

I also stamped the inside with a flower and more dots, it is always nice to decorate the inside too…

I made a few as it is the end of the Stampin’ Up! year and lots of my team have earned the Incentive trip which is an all expense paid holiday for two.  It will take place in 2016 and we are all off on a Med Cruise for a week!  I am so proud of my team, it is the largest number of girls yet who have earned it and it will be so much fun to share this trip with them.

So now it’s is time to pop over to Lizy’s blog to see what she has made for World Cardmaking Day.  Happy hopping and please note that there is a new hostess code for the month of October so if you plan to place an order don’t forget to add it to your online order.
