Hi and welcome to my blog!! I am so glad you could join me today as I share a couple of cards with you for World Card Making Day. So, have you been hoping along the fab list of designers?? If not, you can check the huge blog hop by clicking on the picture below.....
I love to get a head start on my Christmas cards and so I though I would pull one together for you today. I used the Taylored Expressions Woodland Winter stamp set and colored it in with my Copic markers.
I am not sure what the patterned paper is (I dug deep into my stash for it). I used some of the Flax bakers twine from The Twinery, some pom-pom trim, and some stitching with my sewing machine to pull the card together.
For the snow, I used a Snow Writer from DecoArt and then added some fine glitter from Martha Stewart to make it sparkle (too bad it doesn't show up in th picture.
My Second card today uses the new October Stamp Kit of the Month from Peachy Keen Stamps. Again, I colored the image with my Copic markers and then added a little white pen detail.
This card is actually the example of October Challenge #1 on the Peachy Keen Stamps ning site this weekend for the release. It would be so fun if you wanted to come over and participate with us. The challenge is a 3, 2, 1 challenge that I am hosting. You will need to create a project with Peachy Keen Stamps that uses 3 buttons, 2 patterned papers, and 1 ribbon. So easy and there are some fab prizes up for grabs.....CLICK HERE to get all the information and to link up your card.
Isn't this little chipmunk/squirrel the cutest?? There are a few different faces you can use on this stamp for both a boy and a girl, plus there are two different bodies that face different ways. Perfect to make any kind of combination of these little cuties!! I used a little bit of the new Seaweed bakers twine from The Twinery on this card, too.
Now, it is GIVEAWAY time. I just love having giveaways!! I have been cleaning out my scrap stash and found this collection of three stamps sets that have never been used. They are prefect for card making.
I would like to give it away to someone that leaves a comment today under this post telling me what got you interested in crafting. I will randomly pick a winner for these stamps sometime next week, so be sure to come back to see if you won.
For me, I became interested in crafting because of my grandmother. She was a very talented crafter and I spent so much time with her and would join in on some of her crafting projects as I was growing up. She taught me how to crochet when I was 5....she must have had quite a bit of patience with me, that's for sure!! I just lost my grandmother this week and I am missing her very much!! In some ways, she was more like a mother to me. She will always be thought of as I create, because without her, I don't know if I would have started in the first place. Now, it is your turn.....tell me how you became interested in crafting.
