Happy World Card Making Day!!!

Yup Yup Today's the day to make 100 cards! LOL I wish! I'd be set for life. HaHaHa Alright so, hopefully if you're a cardmaker you get to sit at your desk today and make a few cards and if your not a cardmaker well hopefully you get some inspo today to make a few! :) Let's start first with the Pink Paislee Blog Hop!!! That's right some of us gals over at Pink Paislee have been hard at work creating cards specifically for today to share with you with instructions and all! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Aren't you excited. HeeHeeHee Now, let's see how good I am with instructions... Not very, I presume... But hopefully you'll get something outta this. Here we go... List of what you'll need: 1 4"x6" card 1 3.5"x5.5" piece of Purple Cardstock/Printed Paper 1 4"x3" piece of Vintage Moon "Hollow Moon" Paper 1 4"x2.5" piece of Pop Fashion "Bell Bottoms" Paper 1 4"x2" piece of Kraft Colored Cardstock/Patterned Paper Set of Trick or Treat Clear Stamps Set of Vintage Moon Clear Stamps 1 Star from the Vintage Moon Topsider Shapes 1 Smaller Chipboard Star (optional) 1 1' Purple Ribbon 1 4" Black Ribbon (optional) 1 Sheet of Fashion Script Alphabet Stickers 1 Plastic Spider 5 Purple Rhinestones (optional) 1 Date Journaling Tag 1 Black Feather (optional) 1 Black Ink Pad Pink Glitter Black Glitter Pink Paint Black Paint First: Using the circle image with the pumpkin from the Trick or Treat clear stamp set stamp your Purple piece of Cardstock with it making sure not to overlap images. When you are finished stamping let it dry for a few seconds then glue it down to your card making sure it's centered. Next I sewed it using black thread, but this is optional, the card will look splendid even without the sewing. :) Next: Cut your Date Tag in half. Glue your black feather to the top of your Date Journaling Tag and then glue it to the top of your Hollow Moon Paper keeping it about .5" from the side. Then glue the other half to the bottom. Only letting as much peek out as you prefer. Then: Take and paste down your Hollow Moon paper (along with tag and feather) about .5 from the bottom of your card. Next you will paste down the Pop Fashion Bell Bottom piece of paper making sure it's centered between the Hollow Moon piece. After you do that. Get your piece of Kraft colored cardstock and using the swirl leafy stamp from the Vintage Moon Stamp set stamp your images as far apart as you like them and as many times as you prefer. Then paste this down on top of the Bell Bottom paper making sure it is centered. After that I sewed it along the top and bottom, but this is optional. :) Next Step: Using your ribbon adhesive paste down your black piece of ribbon about 1/4" away from the bottom of the Kraft colored paper. Then cut a 4" piece of your purple ribbon and paste it on top of the black piece making sure it is centered. With your left over ribbon tie a bow as big or as little as you'd like and paste it down over the ribbons on your card. Now you can get out those stars! First we'll start with the big star, paint it pink and before it dries pour your pink glitter all over it. For you little star, paint it black and then pour your black glitter all over it before it dries. Let them sit about 2-5 minutes then shake of the excess glitter. Using a strong adhesive paste your black star in the center of you pink star. Ta-da! You have a blingy 3D star! LOL Now go ahead and paste it to your card. I glued mine about 1" from the top of my card and let it peek off of the left side just a little. Next get out those Trick or Treat Stamps again and using the little "Spooky Bat", stamp him onto a piece of Kraft colored paper, cut him out and paste him onto your star ensemble. If you chose to use the rhinestones you can go ahead and apply these now as eyes for the bat. Finally you can add your sentiment. I chose "Boo", cause its so scary. LOL Actually, cause it fit so perfectly! And last paste your plastic spider on there anywhere you see fit (I added rhinestones to my little spidey) and wha-la... You have a super duper "Spooky Boo" Card! And here's what it should look like (maybe slightly different)... Here's another Halloween card I made using Pink Paislee's Vintage Moon Line, only this one has candy... YUMMY!. And if you didn't get a chance to see my post on the Pink Paislee Blog yesterday it was all about this card I made using a this sketch from CPS. Here are some other cards I created for today using Sassafras' newest line! I could have made a dozen cards with these papers! I didn't wanna stop. :) Now guess what?! That's right a giveaway!!!! I have put together a Card Kit just to give away! It'll have 6x6 pieces of papers, 4 cards, and plenty of ribbon and embellishments to go along with! I'll post the photo later, but believe me it rocks... So much that I don't wanna give it away now. Ha! All you have to do for a chance to win it is link me, in a comment on this post, to your favorite card ever, then I will randomly chose a winner on Monday. I can't wait to see all the fabulous cards you guys love! :) Well I hope you have some inspo to take with you from my blog today! :) Enjoy the rest of your WCMD and go make some cards! HeeHee I know I will be!

wow love the great cards!!

Chappyswife said...

Now this is hard to answer because you may not believe me, but your cards are my favorites, and I am not just saying that. My very fav in this set is the purple and black one, though putting the candy in the orange one is genius! I am particularly loving purple and black for this season.

You wanted a link, though, to a card I love, so I am linking to this one: http://pinkpaislee.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/foryoutammy.jpg

There are simply too many adorable ones to choose from! Thanks for the chance to win. Happy weekend to you. :0)

Ann Cicilie said...

What a nice card you've made!

Favourite card? I'll think it has to be one from a brilliant card maker known in Norway as bibbi. This is one of the cutest she's made, in my opinion, but take your time to visit the rest of her blos as well!

Nicole said...

Zarah said...

My fave card... Well - I have to say it's probably the fourth one in this post by the amazingly talented Nina. The card with the round window. It has such a serenity to it, and is original and funky, yet still so classic. I love it!

Plus: that girl isn't "only" a great cardmaker, she's an awesome person & friend as well. :)

Have a good WCMD!

Nina said...

Wow - I guess I've said it before, but I really love your style. All of your projects are GORGEOUS!!

Now, I could have chosen one of your cards for the "all time favorite" - but I guess what you're after is some inspiration, right?

Below is a link to a friend and talented cardmaker/scrapper: Helena. My favorite card is the one on top, with the little monster on it. I just LOVE it!! The text in the speech bubble is a Swedish birthday song. :)

Ya know you've got some pretty wicked cards alone in this post! I would select my fave out of that bunch ... b/c they've inspired me.

But as far as my fave creator lately (and there are many) .... is by ScrappyChica. Rather than linking one image, I'm linking her gallery .... She's done some kick bootay cards!

I only wish I had a chance at such awesome candy, but the luck is rarely with me. Crossing my fingers, toes and everything else I can physically cross :)

Thanks for the opportunity!
