Happy World Card Making Day 2013!
World Card Making Day is a holiday especially for card makers around the world to ... celebrate the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create between friends and family, AND to kick off (and get a head start on) the holiday card-making season! Today, Whimsy Stamps is celebrating World Card Making Day 2013 with our very own BLOG HOP! The hop starts today at 9.00AM (EST) and ends on Monday 7th October 2013 at 12.00PM (EST). We've hidden a fantastic rubber stamp prize pack somewhere along the hop, so be sure to complete the hop and leave comments on all the DT's hop posts to enter! We will announce the lucky winner on the Whimsy blog on Monday, once the hop has ended.
Okay folks I hope you're having fun on the hop and if you've just come from Patricia's blog you're on the right path and it's my turn to share with you. Now that summer is over and we're heading into Autumn my thoughts are turning to my most favourite time of year. I embrace everything Crimbly and it's the perfect excuse to bring out the magpie in me and use lots of sparkly stuff. For my card I used 'Santa's Glee' by Crissy Armstrong and he's such a jolly chap. Now I'm a rather fussy person when it comes to my Santa's but he is adorable and can see him adorning many of my Christmas makes this year! I went for a rather untraditional Santa colour scheme and it was the gorgeous papers 'Winter Frost' by Michele Roos for Whimsy that inspired me to colour him up in this combo. Let me show you my card:-
Dies: Spellbinders 'Labels 22', Marianne Design Creatables Poinsettia, Joy Crafts Winter Wishes Snowflake border, Dienamics Crochet border, Memory Box Holly Vine
An arty view coming up. All papers were distressed with my scissors and edged with Tim Holtz walnut stain. I got the old Twinklets out and covered the snowflake border in them and also edged the poinsettia and my image too. Love this stuff its adds great texture.
Last pic I promise! You can see the adorable Santa better here, he's such a happy chappy isn't he and you can see some of those Twinklets better too.
