Besides being World Card Making Day today is also the first day of Splitcoaststampers third annual Hope You Can Cling To (HYCCT)  event. The entire month of October we will have new HYCCT challenges. Each card made for these challenges will be mailed to the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Today three challenges are posted to kick off the event. One by Lydia, one by Lori and one by me. My challenge is called Ray of Hope. Create a card with mostly in gray with a splash of color. For my sample I stamped a flower from MFT’s IB Flowers 4 inTuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock the image was cut with the Tag You’re It Die-namics die. A border was stamped with the matching Tag You’re It stamp set in Jet Black Archival ink.  The image was colored with Spectrum Markers (IG1, IG2, IG4, IG6, IG8, PP1, PP3, PP5),

A piece of KaiserCraft After Five Collection (came already cut in that shape) was adhered under a 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Bo Bunny Enchanted patterned paper on the card base, a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock. The bottom corners of the card were rounded.  Three black Rhinestones were added to the upper right hand side of the card.

The tag was layered on a slightly bigger hand cut black cardstock before White ribbon was tied to it with a button and embroidery thread. It was adhered to the card front with foam adhesive squares.

I hope you have time to participate in the Hope You Can Cling To challenges and create some card for the cancer center patients.

Have a wonderful day!

I have the pleasure to be the hostess in this weeks Timeless Tuesday Challenge. I love May. Everything is blooming and you can see flowers everywhere. My challenge is super easy. Just use a flower image on your project.

For my card I decided to use the gorgeous image from the Sweet Peas stamp set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on white cardstock. The image was cut and embossed with the smallest Grand Rectangle Nestabilities die and the Out of the Box technique and colored with Copic Markers (Blossom: RV000, RV10, RV13    Leaves: G20, G21, G24   Background: N0, N2).

Two pieces of patterned paper were cut and embossed with the next size of Grand Rectangle dies. The edges were sanded and stitched. A hole was punched on the lower right of the image and pink sheer ribbon was threaded through. The image layer was adhered to the patterned paper, the ribbon was tied into a bow and topped with a button.

A sentiment from With Gratitude was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die. The sentiment was adhered to the lower left of the image. The layers were adhered to the card base, white cardstock cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities die.

Take a peek at what the other Timeless Tuesday designer have created for today…

I hope you have time to play. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
