Sherry and I start stamping on the same exact day, she's my best friend IRL and she is such an inspiration to me for her great attitude and love of life!

Not to mention I am totally jealous of her coloring skills, that girl can color, and without fancy Copics or Pencils, just straight up SU! ink and her aquapainter and she's off!!

Happy World Cardmaking Day! Are you ready for another challenge?

Doesnít fall always make you think of trees, of warm rich colors and cool fresh breezes? Trees are such wonderful images, inspiring us with strength, hope, renewal and constancy. Think of the imagery we get from trees Ė sheltering us, growing roots, reaching to the sky. Well, if you canít tell, Iíve been on a major tree kick this year (going green and all, I guess!). So, my challenge to you is simple. Show me your trees!

Whether itís a spring tree ready to bloom, a naked tree in winter, a happy Christmas tree or fall foliage; whether you want to show the tiniest bit of a leaf or a huge forest; make them crazy, make them fun, make them elegant. If you canít find a tree you want to use, donít despair. Weíre all flexible here so you can also use anything that is related to trees Ė leaves, acorns, even small woodland creatures! Get creative and letís pay tribute to our arboreal friends.

Please add WCMDWT08 in your keyword section and post a link back here so that we can all see your work! Please remember that to be considered in the drawing for a prize, all challenge cards must be uploaded no later than Monday night at 11:00 pm EST! New uploads only please...

Thanks to Taylor for organizing and to all the great member companies for sponsoring our fun!

Enjoy the challenge and have a TREE-mendous day!

Happy World Card Making Day! In honor of this special day, let us make the world a more beautiful place and plant flowers - on our cards! For today's special Technique Lover's Challenge we are going to make a card with hand made nested circle flowers.

I have long admired these type of embellishments in the store, but they can be expensive. Making your own is not only a great way to use scraps and save money, but it is also fun and easy. If you are not sure how to make them, see below for my tutorial.



Nested Flowers Tutorial

Supplies Needed

1. Paper or material for your flowers.
Anything you can cut, punch or die cut; scraps are fine.
Some examples:
patterned paper/cardstock/newspaper/sheet music
ribbon
lace
fabric
tulle
mesh
velvet
felt

2. Five (or more) circles cut with die cuts, punches, or scissors.
I like them hand cut the best - the imperfections and wrinkles look good!

Tip: I punch or die cut 5 of the largest circle with different materials, then hand trim them, making each one smaller and smaller. Size of circle used is up to you - I used a 2.5 inch circle as my largest.

3. A paper piercer or hole punch and brad to attach the circles together.

4. Optional: Paper distresser.

Directions:

1. Cut your circles. Distress them if you wish.

2. Layer the nested circles to make a flower. The largest will go on the bottom, the smallest on top.

3. Starting with the largest bottom circle, use your paper piercer to pierce a hole in the center. Put the next layer on top and paper pierce it; repeat until all layers have a hole in them and attach with brad. I like to attach it very tightly as that causes the layers to bunch up, shaping the flower.

4. Optional: Shape the flower by rolling edges, tearing, folding and wrinkling.
  • Design Ideas:
  • Experiment with different shapes - squares, floral - whateva!
  • Top the brad with a button
  • Shape them for texture dimension
  • Distress/fray the edges and sponge them with ink or acrylic paint for a shabby chic look
  • Hand stitch them for a homey feel.
  • Fold/gather some of the layers for a rippled look.
Your turn! Let's see your flowers!

Here is my sample card and here is a close up of the nested flower.

To view all the samples in the WCMDTLC08 Gallery click *HERE*.

Be sure to use WCMDTLC08 in your keyword to be entered into the prize drawing (no spaces, put a comma and space between keywords )

To be considered in the drawing for a prize for participating in the challenge, all challenge cards must be uploaded no later than Monday night at 11:00 pm EST.

Uploading Directions:
1. Keyword: WCMDTLC08
2. Upload by Monday October 6th at 11:00pm EST to be elegible for WCMD prizes from the SCS Member Companies.
3. Post a link to your card here for all to see.
4. HAVE FUN!

Keeping it simple since there are so many challenges in which to participate.

No P's please. No Pattern Paper or Pastels. Pretty simple huh?

Now lets see some great stamping. This does not have to be complicated. I have created 4 samples. No real special techniques on any of them.

The 4th one has some layering in the folds but still pretty easy.
