Happy World Cardmaking Day!

Happy World Cardmaking Day! Go grab a cup of coffee, because I have a lot to tell you about today! I love this day . . . because, obviously, I love making cards!


This first card features an AWESOME printable background stamp created by the very talented Regina at The Cutting Cafe'. Here's what else is totally cool . . . I'm giving this Merry Christmas Background printable stamp away in a random drawing! So, if you love it, and you would like to have a chance to win it, leave me a comment! I will draw for it on Tuesday! So, I printed the background stamp directly on my Making Memories ledger paper, I added a crimped Christmas tag, a felt flower, a button threaded with twine (thanks for the twine Chris!), and a rhinestone trio. I love it!


Next, I created some crimped envelope cards for our World Cardmaking Day celebration at Paper Popsicles! If you're looking for some inspiration, please come hang out with us! There are tutorials, and PRIZES! The Paper Popsicles message board is such a great place to be! Come join us today!


This is a Halloween version of the crimped envelope card! Look, it has some candy inside!!

I also posted about color and design inspiration being found anywhere! I just so happen to find mine in Target! I love that store, and I love these pillows. I actually took a picture of them when I was shopping with my girls! I was inspired by both, but I used the rainbow pillow as inspiration for a card!

Here's my rainbow card! I used all paper scraps! I kept the sentiment simple with a Stampin' Up stamp which I cut out with my Coluzzle, and I added some sheer ribbon. I think this is a FUN card! So, check out more inspiration at Paper Popsicles today! There will also be a lot of posts on the blog throughout the day! Have fun!! Be inspired! Get creative!

Have a GREAT day! Thanks for stopping by!
