Happy World Card Making Day

Are you busy making cards today? Do you have a day planned with friends to get scrappy and to have some fun? Today is World Card Making Day and I am sure that there are many cards being made today. Some were made previously for todays blog post I am sure. Just like the one that I made here for you all to see.

Close up of the white embossing.

Card Instuctions:
Taking the  Hero Arts Flower Text stamp  I  added some Versa Mark adhesive to it. Before adding it to my white cardstock, I rubbed my Embossing Buddy overtop of my paper to prevent the adhesive from sticking in places not needed. Once this was done, I then stamped the image on the cardstock. Then I poured clear embossing powder overtop. After shaking off the excess, I then used my heat gun to dry the embossing powder. Once completely dried I took, Broken China, Walnut, and Peeled Paint Ranger Distress Inks to add some colour to the background of this cardfront. After adding the distress inks overtop of cardstock, I spritzed it with water to give it a more blended look. After this was completed the sides were distressed using blending tool and chocolate chip ink to finish. Now moving on to the flowers. I used my Tombo Markers to colour and shade the flowers. Bling was then added for the flower centers. The card front was adhered to craft cardstock and matching ribbon, along with Jelly Bean Soup sentiment were added for the finishing touches.

This card was made for today, but also for the Blog Hop that is happening over at PaperCrafts Magazine Blog. Today there will be many bloggers sharing their cards with you so be sure to check out there company blog here.

This card was also made with the Lily Pad Bling Challenge in mind. I didn't share that here before when I posted because I thought I missed the challenge deadline. But after checking it and seeing that I still have time to submit it, I am doing just that! Make sure that you play along too.

Love this card! The subtle inking and distressing along with the brilliance of the flowers equals a huge visual impact. Glad you had a great card making day! Thanks for sharing.

WOW...I just love this card! Love the embossing resist and that text stamp background. Using Distress ink over resist is one of my favorite techniques and one that I don't use often enough. Thanks for the reminder of how great it looks. It is especially fabulous on the kraft base!
