OWH WCMD Blog Hop

Hi there!  Thanks for stopping by today.  Today is World Cardmaking Day and I am participating in the Operation Write Home Blog Hop.
The fine folks at OWH have asked the hop participants to create Thank You cards using one of their fabulous sketches.

I have created one card in two different color combos using sketch #188.

My first card has a bit of a feminine side to it.


This one is for the fellas.

Stamp: Penny Black-Salutations
Embossing Folder:  Stampin Up

Stamp:  Hero Arts
Embossing Folder-Stampin Up
Both Cards:
Ink:  Nautical Blue
Adhesives:  Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots, Tombow Foam Tabs

Thank you for stopping by. Be sure to head on over to Operation Write Home for a complete list of blog hoppers.

Great cards! I love the cloud embossing on the feminine card.

Patricia Meadows said...

Like the bright colors on your first card. Like the embossing on both cards. Thanks for joining in.

Debbie McNamee said...

I love how you did these cards! The embossing and the paper choice is so nice!

Kara said...

Love that by doing two different versions of the sketch you've made it easy for people to see how different patterns and colorways change the look of a design.

Diane said...

Hi Melissa- love that you have 2 versions- 1 for the guys! I struggle with guy cards so--thanks for the inspiration! And wow- love that you made mutiples- that is my goal today!!! Thanks for your support of OWH and our troops!

Oak Pond Creations said...

Melissa, these are just beautiful. They are clean, crisp and it makes your embossing just pop. Happy WCMD, hugs and happy crafting! -Kim

Jill P said...

very pretty cards!

*Vicki* said...

Very lovely creations!! Love the strip of papers for the banners!! A great way to use up those left over pieces! :) Happy World Card Making Day fellow craft friend! HUGS

Jessie said...

Lovely cards!I love that cloud embossing on the first card.

Janet said...

Love how you did your cards - especially the dry embossing on the first card (clouds).

Jody Green said...

Both cards are beautiful! I think I'm partial to the first - love the clouds. The embossing really finishes off both cards. Great work!

Stacy B said...

This was one of my favorite sketches too! You've done a great job. Love the first card with the embossed clouds, so pretty.

Misty said...

The embossing really sets both cards off. I like the colors as well.

Great design, love the embossing!

Cheri said...

Super cards, my friend! Love your take on the sketch for the fellas and the gals!!! WTG!

Karen Wyngaard said...

I like the simple, graphic nature of your cards, yet they have texture, too. Isn't it great how you can change the look of a card using a single sketch, JUST by witching out the papers?

♥⊱p a t t i ⊰♥ said...

Beautiful job! Love that you created both masculine & feminine cards!

roseofs said...

Love your 2 examples - simple but with great bold patterns and colors. I have trouble with "guy" cards sometimes - I can see that they don't always have to be shades of brown to be manly! Thanks.

Jen R said...

Thank you for making the cards! I liked seeing the difference with the colors and background. radloffjen at cableone dot net

Kristie said...

I love that you made a feminine and masculine card using the same sketch. Great paper/color choices! And the perfect sketch for making multiples or using up some scraps. Great job!

I have to get that embossing folder for the feminine card. I like the way you made a man and a woman card from the same sketch. Thank you for supporting OWH.

Andrea T said...

These are beautiful. Just the change in texture and paper makes them look so different.

Doris said...

Very classy looking cards! I love how a simple change in colors/prints change the look.
