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.
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!
Hugs and smiles
