World Cardmaking Day with Clearsnap

Okay so I didn't realize there was a whole contest and everything, but there actually is! Hop over the World Cardmaking Day website and there is still a chance to enter and win an amazing prize package that is filled with some of my favorite Clearsnap Products and lots of other goodies! AND Clearsnap is giving away and a $50 Smooch prize package, so make sure you pop over there and comment on their blog here: Clearsnap Products ! So in honor of the day I created a two cards using the same super easy sketch. Both of these cards are made using Recollections Corrugated Cardboard cards from Michaels as a base and have a little ribbon on top so the card can be hung up to enjoy.

And the Clearsnap Creative Team is a hopping today so check out everyones creations:

Denise Hahn <------ you are here!

{The original color of the cardboard base is the same as the card beneath, I  found that they take Clearsnaps Stephanie Barnards Sprays very well!. I sprayed it with black then Smooched it up with some Carrot Cake Smooch Spritz}

{Here is a close up of the effect}

{I used three different trims, a ribbon, some glitter wire garland that I also tinted with Clearsnap Spray ink and heat set, then some little pom-pom trim from Joanns}

{I used Glue gloss to fill in some of the details on the Graphic 45 Cardstock}

{On the inside I used some vintage book paper, and then made a space for writing. Of course I edged everything with Colorbox Chalk in Licorice. You can also see the inside where I tied the ribbon and left little tails for added interior detail}

{ I just love the little added touches to any handmade card like this little skull brad from Close to my Heart}

{I am in love with Graphic 45 Happy Haunting, I used their Cardstock, Chipboard, and their Printed Type Ribbon}

Next up is the same sketch made with Primas Almanac Collection

{For this one I painted the corrugated card base with some white acrylic paint and then edged it using Colorbox Chalk in Dusty Rose}

{For the embellishment I cut out one of Primas Clocks and added apiece of raw silk ribbon to the center}

{And again, two flat borders and a dimensional one}

{Detail of the background}

{Interior, again I used a piece of vintage book paper and dressed it up with papers from Primas Collection}

{So the reason I put the little ribbon hanger on my cards, is for THIS reason. They become a little decoration that can be hung up and appreciated!}


  1. Both cards are Amazing! I love the first one.

  2. Both cards are great. Love that you recycled paper. Have not had an opportunity to try the Clearsnaps Stephanie Barnards Sprays, so will have to have see if I can find them in my area.

  3. these are beautiful Denise! Gotta love the SB sprays!
