OWH Birthday Bash with Perfect Papercrafting 2013

 
Hello everyone,
 
We are still celebrating our birthday! I hope you have been able to party right along with us.
 
Welcome to the OWH Birthday Bash blog skip featuring Perfect Papercrafting Perfect Layers!
If you click here you can start at the very beginning of the skip. You know you wouldn't want to miss out on any of the great inspiration.
 
If you've been skipping from the beginning you should have come from Patti's Blog.   
 
I used two of OWH Sketches.
 
First is #132.
 
 
I have no idea why I thought this color combination would work. But for some reason I like it.
What hero wouldn't want to send hugs and kisses to their loved one. This one could pass easily for a love card but even could be used as a valentine card if needed.
 
The second card is sketch #173.
 
 
With this card I will be writing an Any Hero message for my next box.  
 
I've gotta tell you I wasn't sure I was going to like using the Perfect Layer rulers but I have fallen in love with them. It makes it so easy to have even layers all the way around your image or sentiment.
You can have layers from 1/16" all the way to 1".
 
This skip gets better. I'm sure you read it on an earlier blog post but I want to be sure to remind you.  Perfect Paper Crafting has generously given us a discount code to give you our readers that will get you 5% off their purchases - no expiration!  So you will need to use this code:  OWH5%. And it doesn't stop there, they are also doing a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to PPC. What you need to do is comment on every blog on the hop to qualify.  

What you say, you have never made cards for OWH? If you click here you will get the guidelines needed to keep our heroes safe and to make it easier for them to send the cards back home to loved ones.

To continue with the fun check out Lezlyes blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by.

I like the craft look on the first card. Wonderfully done. Not sure I could pull that off.

Gorgeous cards, your layers are Perfect! ~Diane

Diane said...

I like your cards, especially the sentiment on the second card.

Jean B in PA said...

Your use of layering is great! I like the subtle embossed stripes and the printed, but tone on tone stripes used together on the second card.

Jean B in PA said...

I love the patterned papers, heart buttons and the banner on your card!

Nancy Keller said...

Wow, great colors and that embossing on the second card is such a nice touch to match the patterned paper! Thanks for sharing with us and for joining in on the hop! I love that "brave man" sentiment. Lovely!

Debbie Caldwell said...

Each place I go I just get more confirmation that I have to have the layer tools. Your cards are great, I do like the hugs and kisses card...sometimes the oddest color combos just "work" This one does. Thanks for sharing.

Cheryl Claycomb Anderegg said...

Beautiful cards, I love the orange / green card, definitely not your routine color choice, but so unexpected and fun. TFS!

Leigh S-B - The Sharpie Domino Queen said...

Two beautiful cards, love the colours and all the layering!

All those lovely layers set off your papers beautifully!

Nice cards! Love the pattern paper of the first one!

Love your color combinations! Those hearts really work with that paper. :)

Tami B. said...

Pretty cards. Layering just adds so much.

Dixie Cochran said...

Pretty papers and perfect designs. Lovely cards!

Paula S. said...

Nice work Marianne! I have to say I could never use a thin 1/16" border on anything until I got my Perfect Layers tools, and sometimes they are just the right size to help define and edge without taking over a design. Glad you got to join in today's skip!

Colleen said...

Your 1st card is darling! Those colors are great and of course the layer are fantastic!

sherry varga said...

Kathy said...

I think your color combinations are great! Very nice job on both cards. After seeing all of the cards on this blog hop it's hard to think of making cards without layers. Need the new rulers.

Marsha said...

Really like your layered hearts.

Iris said...

A friend of mine has been telling me for a long time now that I really should get Perfect Layers...well they've now moved from the want list to the top of the need list! Thanks so much for your support of OWH and all our Heroes!
