United Through Creativity

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin Up Independent Demonstrator from Joshua,TX.

Today, I’d like to share with you Cards that I created with the FREE PDF for #WorldDiversityDay. It feels amazing to be participating in this amazing worldwide celebration with the #UnitedThroughCreativity PDF.

There are 14 pages on the free PDF so it’s going to take quite a bit of time to do them all but I thought I’d share with you just a few that I’ve created so far.

This card holds very special meaning to me as I have friends and family members with a wide variety of disabilities so it means A LOT to me that Stampin’ Up included a disabled individual in this PDF.

For this card I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to die cut the image, hand colored with the Stampin’ Blend Markers, trimmed the sentiment with my Stampin’ Trimmer and added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the backs of both the image and sentiment and adhered down on a Highland Heather Cardbase. I added 3 Artistry Blooms Sequins next to the sentiment and created a blank inside Cardbase for what I plan to include a heartfelt message to my friends. I will definitely be re-printing this image to do more.

My second sample I couldn’t help but to turn into a card for one of my Canadian friends. That maple leaf is just the best! I fussy cut the maple leaf with a pair of Paper Snips and hand colored it with the Light and Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend Markers. I added Sheet adhesive to the back of a scrap piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock and die cut the “Oh Canada” sentiment using the Playful Alphabet Dies and added them to a strip of Basic White Cardstock. I added a decent sized strip of Basic White Cardstock to the front of Poppy Parade Cardbase with Stampin’ Seal Adhesive and added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the maple leaf and then added Stampin’ Seal to the “Oh Canada” to adhere in place.

I made this card on Victoria Day but I’m going to mail it to my friend the end of June in celebration of Canada Day. I know she’s going to love it!!!

This card is going in my reserved pile until I find the right person to gift it to. I just used my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut the image and sentiment. I hand colored the image with Stampin’ Blends, added a little Stampin’ Seal to the back of the sentiment, added some Blackberry Bliss Ribbon, added some Stampin’ Dimensionals and added it to the front of the image. I added Stampin’ Seal Adhesive to the image and adhered it directly onto a Blackberry Bliss Cardbase. I added a few of the Artistry Blooms Sequins to the front just to take away some of the empty space.

I really hope that you enjoyed these projects and will join me again soon for another edition. Until next time – Happy Stampin everyone!!
