BLOG CANDY ALERT!!!!!
Yippee!!! It's Bloghop day! Welcome OWHer's, friends, hoppers and vistors! Did I cover everyone?! :-)

Today is World Cardmaking  Day and I am so excited to be part of the OWH Bloghop and to offer some blog candy if you become a follower of my blog and leave a comment below!

Our challenge today was to make a thankyou card using an OWH sketch. I chose sketch #158.
158 unknown
(If you'd like to check out the other sketches you can find the link right here. )
I also couldn't resist making a few other clean and simple cards.

The cardstock is from Bazil and the ribbon is from May Arts and the stickers are from Wal-mart. I picked them up a few years ago.


Here's the other 2 I made for today. One more patriotic card and one just for any day.
I used a Hero Arts sentiment and Star Swirl embossing folder for the above card.

For this card, I used a previous technique posted at an OWH Blogskip. I added a sentiment from JustRite, some faux stitching and a few gems.

Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of the hop! Let me know which is your fav! 

 Don't forget,  if you are a follower or become a follower of my blog and leave a comment below letting me know what's your favorite card or part of a card I've posted then you'll be entered to win this wonderful set  of Spectrum Noir markers.  

 I'll pick someone using Random.org on Thursday. I'll post the winner on the top of this post and on my Thursday posting as well. I hope you vist again to see my Card Making Monday, Using My Tools Thursday and Scrapbook Saturday postings.
I'm off to check out all the other great cards! 
Thanks for joining my journey of creating something beautiful!

Great cards Amelia! I love the blue and brown combo though...so that is my favorite. Nice work.

KellyRae said...

Wonderful cards - the patriotic cards are great (I especially like the stars on each). Your last card is FABULOUS - I saw that technique but hadn't tried it yet, thanks for reminding me.

Kathy S said...

Great ribbon and use of patriotic cards.

Lori J Martin said...

Your faux stitching looks real! Love the color blocks on the last cards. I need to look up that technique!

Andrea T said...

The first card has such beautiful and coordinating elements, the stars, the ribbon, the embossing. Very nice!

JoAnn Ross said...

Great cards! I especially love the way you put the inchies together in the final card! I'm going to have to CASE that! Plus, I really like that sentiment on the inchie; I'm often stymied by the smaller sentiments.

Julie said...

All three are cute but I think that third one is my favorite - I love the faux stitching! Happy WCMD!

Amelia Andrade said...

Amelia Andrade said...

Thanks so much Lori! I think its a consensus. The last card is the favorite! lol!

Amelia Andrade said...

Thanks Andrea. For some reason I struggled this blog hop with the mojo for my cards. I appreciate the encouragement.

Amelia Andrade said...

Thanks for commenting JoAnn! Yes, me too! When I first started card making I thought why do people need these itsy bitsy stamps?! So, I'm always looking for ways to use them. Actually, I think now I have the hardest time with the big ones because there's no room for lots of layered patterned paper. The stamp becomes the focal point and I want to embellish it up. lol

Amelia Andrade said...

Hi Julie! Thnaks for commenting and happy WCMD to you too!

Amelia Andrade said...

Thanks so much Teresa! I wanted to make a patriotic themed card this time since with my last OWH bloghop I used lots of Copics. Wanted to mix things up a bit. Have a great day!

Amelia Andrade said...

Thanks Bobbi for taking the time to comment! I think everyone agrees, even me. The brown and blue is the fav! Enjoy WCMD!

Oh wow! They are all fantastic but I guess my fav would be the brown and blue one with the faux stitching. I just love those colors together and the gems are just perfect to finish this card.You have been busy!! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us.

Amelia Andrade said...

Thanks Michele! Have a great weekend!

Marybeth said...

Amelia…. Love all the cards you made! Hard to pick a favorite but I am going to pick the first one. Love the layout and embossed stars.
You asked how I did the inlay leaves. Well, I just die-cut the main page then die-cut the same leave from printed paper and placed it in the negatives space of the first one. Does that make sense to you… Its really super easy!

Abbie Jo said...

Love the subtleness of the embossing folder on the navy, great touch! Following on Feedly :)

Camille Short said...

All classic!

Amelia Andrade said...

Hi Abbie Jo! What's Feedly?

Amelia Andrade said...

Thanks a bunch Camille for your comments!

Amelia Andrade said...

Thanks Marybeth. I don't have any dies yet so I use my Cricut. I'll have to get creative with that and see what I can come up with... Hazzah, a challenge!

Ann said...

Awesome cards!! I love the last one, I really like the browns and blues! I also love the patriotic ones. Since I have everything for your second card, I think it would be a great card to CASE!

Rufus said...

As your newest follower I like the first card for the embossing folder and that great bi-color pinwheel star and the third for the color combo and the perfect technique! Thanks for the chance at the Spectrum Noirs and even more for your support of OWH!
