Winnie & Walter's WCMD-Fest

I'm playing along with Winnie & Walter's World Cardmaking Day fest.  Although I didn't make any cards on WCMD, I spent the day at the stamp festival at Port Sunlight, buying lots of lovely stash to add to Mt NBUS.  I've crammed all the challenges into this post, but there are only three cards.  So far ;)

First up is the craftie/selfie - link a selfie of yourself crafting - er, nope.  Or a photo of your crafting area.  Here's one of my masterboard in progress - the white embossing powder is on, but not yet heated or coloured.

Here's my first card:

It's going into Heather's Colour Challenge and Shay's Masterboard challenge.  I'm also entering it into Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday.
On to the second card:

I'm entering this one into Kelly's Partial Stamping challenge - I didn't stamp the deer's feet, and those trees are just the top section of the ginormous tree in the Winter Woodland set.  I'm also entering it into Vanessa's Watercolour Challenge.  I used Distress Inks, spritzing for the trees, adding water on the deer, and painting in footprints and snowbanks.  It's also going into Simon Says Stamp World Cardmaking Day Challenge.

For my third trick card:

This one is going into Julie's Masculine challenge, Lydia's Gold/Metallic challenge, and Gayatri's Sketched challenge.

Still here to the end?  Thank you so much for sticking with me!  I'm off to play with more of my new stash.


  1. Beautiful collection of cards Shirley!

  2. They are all beautiful!! Love your use of watercolors! Thank you for joining me at Winnie & Walter ♥

  3. A feast for the eyes. I spent WCMD in the vineyards. Looks like I missed a lot of fun.

  4. Beautiful and inspiring cards Shirley. I now want to try the tree spritzing with siimilar colours ... looks amazing against the white snow. :) xx

  5. Brilliant collection, Shirley ... I'm particularly taken with the second ... what a gorgeous scene you created with partial stamping! A whole day at a Stamp Festival ... sounds blissful! Hugs, Anita :)
