I am so excited to finally share the 2 cards I got accepted back in July from CardMaker magazine’s January 2012 issue! This year was exciting for me in that a goal to get published about 3 years ago finally came true! I kept plugging away with time after time getting rejected. I have to admit I almost wanted to give up! It happened the first time in July with Scrap & Stamp Arts and now CardMaker.
Here is my card on a full page spread (woo hoo!) using Perfect Pennants. I just adored all the bright colors on this card with the pop of black! I used White, Key Lime, Red Hot, Sweet Mango, Turquoise Sea and Black Onyx pure luxury cardstock. They were all stamped with a polka dot stamp from Timeless Textures then punched out with 1 1/4” square punches. The colored pennants are hanging from black cotton thread.
Here is another card that was accepted, but it did not make it in print. However, it is on the web as a bonus project. CardMaker sent me the full color printed copy of it which is what I am showing here (luckily since we don’t have a color printer!) I used A Year of Flowers on this card and the labels 9 die is some linen fabric. I love the simplicity of this card but also the wonderful textured brown button I found in my stash for the sunflower center! You can click on the photo for a larger view.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my fun news!!
