World Cardmaking Day and Much More News!
Happy Monday, my friends! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Yesterday was my daughter-in-law’s birthday, and we had such fun celebrating Adrianna. We had steak, mashed potatoes and gray, and deviled eggs (all from Mike), roasted Brussels sprouts, delicious warm rolls topped with butter (from Stephanie & Garrett), and incredible citrusy desserts from Katelyn. Everything was so scrumptious, and, of course, just being with the kids and listening to their stories and jokes was wonderful! It topped off an amazing weekend that started with World Cardmaking Day (WCMD) events!
Before I show you the WCMD cards we made, I’ll share some fun news.

And now – Here are the cards we made Saturday for the World Cardmaking Day Event.
These were so fun!
First, we created this card using the Cottage Rose Bundle. I love how the petals and leaves on the stamped flower were colored in different colors (Mint Macaron/Old Olive; Flirty Flamingo/So Saffron). The little Iridescent Pearls were colored with Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends.
This card was created with the Warm Welcome Bundle from the January-June 2023 Mini Catalog. It was released early for WCMD. I love how the designer sponged Fresh Freesia and Mint Macaron Ink over the door; so fun! And look at the door handle – another Iridescent Pearl! (By the way, this new product was includede with the purchase of any or all of the bundles used for the WCMD event.)
Finally – the third card using the Cottage Wreaths Bundle.
Instead of using Old Olive and Flirty Flamingo Cardstock for the die-cut wreath and bow, we colored Shimmery White Cardstock with Water Painters and ink. This gave the images a more mottled texture with varying depths of color.
This was such a fun event from Stampin’ Up!® – and even more fun because I got to stamp with some friends! Don’t forget to take advantage of the Starter Kit+ and free shipping promotions, as well as the new Birthday Card Organizer Kit!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
