World Card Making Day


Happy World Card Making Day! Are you ready to be inspired? Share your marvelous creations? Shop? (don’t forget the coupon for the store over on the right side of my blog) Well, whatever you are in the mood for, have fun!! :)

Giving Thanks

Here is the card that I made for today. Its been in my head and now that I made it, meh. Its missing something and DH thinks its just weird. I guess I am hoping that you can pick it apart and take something away from it that you like; the color combo, the pumpkin rosettes, the fabric, or whatever else makes you want to get creating. :)

I did make a video about this card and it is in two parts. Part I covers the cutting of fabric with the Nestabilities and making the rosettes and Part II covers the making of the card.

Yes, two parts. Seriously, I am working on the chatty. But I really felt like I narrowed it down. Oh well, editing doesn’t lie. I chopped the entire end of the card making video off because, you have the photos of the card and you don’t really need to watch me use glue. LOL! Hope you like it!! Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Kimberly, thank you so much for the video tutorial to make the pumpkins. You made it very clear and easy, and I can't wait to make some.

Hi, Kimberly!

Love the color palette of this card. Here's my take on it. I think that the sassy pumpkins get lost in all of the textures and layers of the card. I'd actually remove the pumpkins from this card (simplifying this one), and then feature the pumpkins on a more graphic card making the pumpkins the star of the show. That's just a thought,but I'd have to see it.

I hope that you have a fabulous crafterific day!
