World Card Making Day!!!

Welcome to my blog on World Card Making day!!! Today is my favorite day!!!! Since I love to make cards, I am celebrating World Card Making Day. There are so many activities today all over, but I want to highlight a few that I plan on playing along with. Treasured Scrapbooking, Caardvarks and Splitcoaststampers! Make sure you check them out!

My first card is for Treasured Scrapbooking, where all the designers are having their own card challenges, so please come and check out our forum set up just for this special occasion. The first prize winner will win a Card kit!!!! How fun is that? You know how much I love the kits Leslie puts together! My challenge is to create a shaped card. Since the month of October is Breast Cancer awareness month, I have been creating with the colors pink, white and black my past few cards and I decided to make a lady's dress shape with those colors again. Well, here is my card. So, what do you think????

Items used to make this card:

Cardstock: Stampin Up and Georgia Pacific
Stamps: Unity Stamps Birdie Inspiration
Ink: Memories
Pearls: Recollections
Martha Stewart border punch

Ok, so my next card is for Splitcoaststampers, using a Unity stamps. I have to tell you, this quote is one of my all time favorite stamps and have been wanting to make this card for quite some time. I even made two versions of it. Here they are:

Items used to make these cards:

Cardstock: Georgia Pacific and Clubscrap
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Wisteria
Stamps: Unity Stamps August Kit of the Month
Ink: Memories
Border punches: Fiskars, EK Success and Stampin Up
Ribbon: Fabric Barn
Button from my stash

My last card to share with you is a Halloween Card. I made this using a cute Halloween image I bought forever ago from So here it is.

And here is a close up of the image. The reason I am showing that to you, as I added a layer of Rock Candy Stickles by following Tim Holtz' tutorial. I like the way it turned out, so I will use it again. Click on the picture to enlarge it, if you really would like to see the affect of it.

Items used to make this card:

Vintage image collage sheet from
Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket
Stamp: Imaginisce
Ink: Ranger Distress ink
Ranger Rock Candy Distress Stickles
Spellbinders Nestabilities and Martha Stewart border punch
Ribbon: Fabric Barn
Buttons: Buttons Galore

I also came up with a fun technique while I was making this card, but I will share about that another day.

Well, hope these cards inspire you some and that you will have a fabulous card making day, in fact a whole weekend. I plan on playing a lot today and tomorrow in my scrap room.
