World Card Making Day!!

Well hello there! Long time, no blog! Sorry I've been mostly MIA for so long now. One of these days my life will get back into a rhythm. Someday...! But in the mean time, I had to stop in today!! It's the biggest holiday for My People. You know - my stampy people! That's right, it's World Card Making Day!! People across the globe are hoping to set aside a chunk of time in their craft spaces today to do a little creating. I'm hoping to have a stampy playdate with some friends later tonight - both IRL and virtually. YAY! But until then, here's a little card I whipped up...


I used one of my favorite Hero Arts holiday sets, Get Merry! To create the blue rectangular background, I used a technique that I first learned from my friend Sally and love so much - inking up an acrylic block (here, with Broken China Distress Ink!) and stamping directly with that. What fun!

So my friends... go forth... be stampy... and have a fabby World Card Making Day! And if you need some inspiration, hop along through this awesome Blog Tour! Woot!


Happy Stamping,
