10:00 am World Card Making Day – HELLO!

10:00 am World Card Making Day – HELLO!

Hello, it’s SCT, we’ve been wondering if after all this time….Hello…

Ok, so we’re not so great at an Adele song but you know what this team is great at? Creating pretty amazing cards! This hour several of our team wanted to share some of their favourite “hello” cards. Who doesn’t love getting a handmade hello in the mailbox? As a little extra, our Art Director and new to the scene cardmaker Cathy Zielske has a fun video too. Let’s get this hour’s party started…

Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts), Patterned Paper (Studio Calico), Stickers (One Canoe Two by American Crafts), Thicker phrase (Havana by American Crafts, Other (sewing machine and thread)

“For this fun fall “hello” card, I used a kraft cardstock base layered with some fall patterned paper. I stitched around the edges to add a bit of texture. Next, I used a sticker pack to add embellishments, and a foam word thicker to add my sentiment. Tip: American Crafts word Thickers are a great way to add a sentiment to your card! Thanks for stopping by the blog today! ~ Jen Chapin

………………..

In a world full of lemons, who’s your lemonade? Tell them as much with a refreshing shaker card.

Lemonade Card by Megan Hoeppner

CARDSTOCK: Die Cuts with a View; PATTERNED PAPER: Make a Pretty Life; DIES, TOPPINGS, FOAM SHAPES: Queen & Co; Adhesives: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I used two fruit dies (wedge and slice) from Queen & Co. to create the focal points on this hello—the lemons! It was easy peasy lemon squeezey using the dies and coordinating Specialty Shaker Kit, which comes with pre-cut pieces of foam. I just adore the bitty lemon slices in this Toppings assortment and knew they’d be just the ticket when it came to filling my fruit.

I reserved the inside panel of the card for the sentiment, which I painted to complement the overall look of the card. TIP: Blend some pink paint into the yellow while the paint is all still wet. This will create a neat, blended look.

This World Card Making Day, spend some of your special card time creating designs you can have on hand to grab in a pinch. You never know when you might need a word of encouragement, and shaker cards make quite the impact. Cheers!” ~  Megan Hoeppner

………………..

Hello, everyone! Thanks so much for joining us today for our WCMD celebration! I love creating cards, especially using the leftover bits and pieces that remain on my desk after designing a layout.  I like to call it “creative clean up.” I also find that card making is a wonderful solution to help me get out of a creative rut.  In fact, cards are the ideal canvas for experimenting with new techniques on a smaller scale.

Sheri Reguly for Scrapbook & Cards Today

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned Paper, Chipboard Accent, Enamel Dots: Simple Stories; Stickers: Simple Stories, Jillibean Soup; Tag: Crate Paper; Die Cutting File: Scrapbook & Cards Today; Manual Die: Papertrey Inc; Glitter: Ranger Industries; Other: Thread, Fine Tipped Black Pen

My best tip for card making is to simply have fun and enjoy the process! You can spend anywhere from 20 minutes on a design, or up to several hours. AND, both can be equally as fabulous!!! ~ Sheri Reguly

“Hey everyone! Cathy Zielske here and I’m so excited to be with you today for World Card Making Day, especially considering that this time last year, I really had no idea what the card making world was all about and now you could say I am all in!

While I still consider myself a pretty new cardmaker, I love trying many of the cool techniques I see on YouTube and today I’m sharing a card with some simple ink blending and an emboss resist technique.

Cathy Zielske card for Scrapbook & Cards Today

For a complete list of the supplies I used, visit my blog

Using a 6 x 6 Hero Arts Repeating Flower Bold Prints background stamp, I used Versamark Ink and white embossing powder to create a white on white image. Then I ink blended over the top using Distress Oxides and that lovely white patterned resisted the ink. I have a video walking you through the whole process! Enjoy!”

    Super cute hello cards! I love all the fun colors used in these designs. Why is that when we say “hello” we always want to add an exclamation mark?? Maybe because it’s usually for someone super special!! If I could say hello to anyone, it would be my dear friend, Celine, in France. We don’t talk very often and don’t write nearly as much as we should. So you’ve inspired me. . . hello card here we come.

    My hello goes to my niece and nephew – and it would be accompanied by a zillion virtual hugs until I can see them in person. The DT inspiration cards: sensational! Thank you for the inspiration!

    If I could say Hello to anyone it would be to Joseph, a dear little Angel who Cancer took from us in 2003 at the too young age of 7! He valiantly battled this nasty disease for two years before it took him. I literally think of him every single day and often ask myself what would Joseph do in a situation. He was an old soul who was much wiser than his 7 years!

When I first started making cards I learned so much from this magazine, and am so grateful for all the wonderful work that you all do. My first WCMD was a huge learning experience too. Trying to create a card that was half as nice as the professionals wasn’t easy, but really stretched my creativity. Thank you!

    Welcome to WCMD we had our day yesterday as we are a day ahead of everyone, I spent the day with several friends making 24 cards thanks to the effort of a couple of friends who organised it -thanks Tracy and pals it was a great day. I would say hello to everyone and anyone-it is just a nice way to be by saying hello to random people it brightens their day as well as yours.

    So many amazing and special cards. I love the layers and how fun is that to put shakers on cards! I love making cards and playing with paper. Its always so relaxing and destressing. I always give a warm hello to anyone who wanders into my craft room to sit down and play with the stash! 🙂

    I’d send a “hello” out to one of my friends from our University days, Melanie … it’s been way too long since we had any type of contact. Time to reach out and try to reconnect again!
