World Card Making Day!!!

Happy World Card Making Day!!!

Hello there and good morning to you all! I'm so excited for today's post! It's my regular day to post but Stacy and I decided to post together and we each made two cards to share with you. I hope that you all get a chance to "get your craft on" today and make something fun! Without further ado...

My first card is a Halloween themed card made with Kraft card stock, Hero Arts stamps, PTI paper, twine and vintage buttons and a piece of trim. I layered and layered on this until it turned out just right. I love the way this card turned out!

Paper: PTI: Kraft, Bitty Dots Basics and Orange Zest

Stamps: Hero Arts

Ink: PTI Vintage Cream and Versamagic Black

Other: PTI twine and buttons, EK Success Large Scallop Punch, thread and trim from stash

As for my second card, I layered again, this time PTI papers, more trim and the cutest little bird I cut out with my Cricut. This card measures 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 which is such a great size to work with. I went with a fall them this time and what's funny about this is that Stacy made a card using the same colors and we didn't even discuss our creations! Lol, great minds think alike I guess! Actually, I think that we're together so much that we actually share half a brain sometimes! :)
Paper: PTI Orange Zest, Dark Chocolate, Bitty Dots Basics and Kraft

Stamps: PTI Autumn Abundance

Ink: Colorbox Chalk Ink in Chestnut Road

Other: Cricut Storybook Cartridge, Kaiser Kraft Rhinestone, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and trim from stash

And now, a few words from Stacy:)

Happy World Card Making Day !! How awesome is it to have this day dedicated to card making? With emails and texting today, people sometimes forget about a good old card.....and what's better than a homemade card ?? Becky and I are excited to be a part of today and can't wait to see all of the wonderful creations : )

On to card number 1........Becky was actually my inspiration for this card. Her hubby is a big fan of orange, I love brown and white and the three colors together are so fun and fallish !! Becky's style is a little bolder than mine, I tend to be quite plain. Together, this card embodies both of our tastes and blends well. Like the card says.......Friends to the end !!!

My next card is a fun little Christmas card, perfect for the weather we're having here !! It's starting to feel that way already : )

I started with an ocean mist cs that I stamped snowflakes on using same color ink. I cut 2 snowflakes with the cricut in scarlet jewel. I adorned rhinestones to give it some bling ! lol

Thanks for stopping by today !! Time to start the blog hop and see all of the wonderful cards that were made in today's honor !
