World Card Making Day Blog Hop

Hello, World!!! It's World Card Making Day and I get to celebrate with you in a very special way with a very special blog hop.  You'll want to be a part of this one... it's for the kids!


For the next 7 days Catherine will be giving 100% of her profits from the sales of her new Hello World stamp set & dies will be giving to help fund the computer program at the school where Jennifer Ingle's husband works as a teacher.  What could be better?  You get some new goodies to play with, the design team brings you a blog hop with dozens of ideas to use them and the kids get new computers and software to build their future!   Win Win Win!!!

If you would like to donate directly to the kids, you can do so by clicking the following go fund me page: https://www.donorschoose.org/project/chromebooks-for-urban-education/2208813/



Supply List
Stamps: Hello World (Catherine Pooler Designs)
Ink: 004, 31, 33, 36, 40, 41 (Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers) Pool to Navy Ombre (Hero Arts) Versamark
Paper: Bristol (Ellen Hutson Essentials) Bermuda Bay (Stampin' Up)
Accessories: Hello World Dies (Catherine Pooler Designs) Misti (My Sweet Petunia) Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder (WOW) Clear Embossing Powder (Stampin' Up)

As if that weren't enough goodness, Catherine came out with another stamp set for this weekend called YAY stripes.  One of the stamps in this set was inspired by my suggestion, so I just HAD to make a card using it for you.  I'll be filming a video and talking about it next week, but for now, I introduce you to the dotted chevron stripe.


Can you guess where the inspiration came from?  Those who know me best might be able to.  ;)  Along with Hello World stamps & dies, and YAY! Stripes stamp set the entire Lovely Notes Collection will also be added to the store.  You might as well add a bit more to your cart if you already paying shipping, right?!  ;) 


To get pink paper to perfectly match the pink dot chevrons I did the direct-to-paper technique.  Simply swipe the ink on piece of white cardstock and you have instant colored paper.  :) 

Stamps: Hello World, YAY! Stripes (Catherine Pooler Designs)
Ink: Grapesicle, Limeade, Tropical Teal (My Favorite Things) Versamark
Paper: Black, White (Stampin' Up)
Accessories: Hello World Dies (Catherine Pooler Designs) Misti (My Sweet Petunia) Opaque Bright White, Sparkling Snow Embossing Powders (WOW)



Now for the blog hop.  Your next stop is the fabulously talented Donna Mikasa.  You will want to check out the entire list of creative designers for ideas on how to use this stamp set & matching dies, then go purchase them for yourself to help the kids get computers in their school. We would love it if you spread the word by sharing this hop with your friends & followers.

BONUS: Instead of a regular blog hop giveaway, I want to give back to the kids, and I hope you do too.  You can help me.  For each 100 people that comment on this blog post by October 3rd,  I will donate $5.00 to the go fund me page.  Your comment will help these kids.  Bless you!

Lovely cards. Love the cause that you guys are doing it for.

jandbspiegel said...

I love your card. The tip for putting the die cut back on the page for stamping is the BEST!!! I struggle stamping on die cuts - most of the time I stamp first and cut second, but even that sometimes comes out a little off. I am definitely going to try this! Thanks.

onenutsyperson said...
