Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking blog. We are proud to be one of the many sponsors of their incredible WCMD giveaway!
We also always love to join our friends at Operation Write Home for their WCMD celebration! This year's theme is "love" - visit their blog and consider creating a card or two to send to our heroes overseas! A few of our fabulous design team members are here today, sharing love-themed cards. First up is Donna, with a beautiful card featuring Written in the Stars! "It's easy to send LOVE across the miles using Written in the Stars with its fun constellation images and sentiments. I chose the heart and white embossed it on watercolor paper, then went over it with several watered down Distress inks. The sentiment was double stamped—first with Archival ink, and then white embossed for a “shadow” appearance. As a finishing touch, I added some gems and star sequins." one of our sets which benefits Operation Write Home! "From start to finish, it's always fun to create cards for our loved ones. To create the background for my card, I used two different colors of ink daubers (Pale Tomato and White). I simply put a little bit of the ink on an acrylic block, added a little bit of water, and then used a paint brush to splash the ink on the card front. I love that even though I have diluted the ink a little bit, the colors are still bright and perfect! I also created a cluster of different elements as the focal point using two pretty sets: Year Round Sentiments and Airmail. I like when you can play with layers and dimension! The final touches were some gems and pearls, as well as some Glossy Accents details." Stencil Alphabet (except the "U" of course!). I took a large acrylic block and arranged the letters randomly on it and stamped with Green Hills ink. Then I took a few of the letters off the block and stamped them separately to fill in the pattern. This simple design would be an easy one to recreate...perfect to create a few for friends and family while creating one to send to Operation Write Home!" /n[hero_products skus="331069, AD007, AD017, AF101, AF150, AF209, AF226, AF263, CG196, CH117, CH125, CH169, CH181, CL582, CL612, CL772, DI058, GW221, PS610, PS620, PS622, PW110, VC250"]
