Stamping Fun World Card Making Day

Woo-Hoo!! Two post in one day--now that's amazing! LOL! So tell me how was your World Card Making Day? Did you get a chance to do any stamping/paper crafting and have some creative fun? I had a chance to get a couple of cards made today and I had soooo much fun doing it!! It's not too often that I have time to stamp just for the fun of it and make anything my heart desires so I decided that's what I would do today.

Here is the first card I made.I thought this was a fun card for Halloween. I just LOVE the vintage image of the witches having tea! The image is from the Crafty Secrets Halloween Vintage Images and Journal Notes Booklet. The Ghoulfriends sentiment and the black kitty with the pumpkins are from the Crafty Secrets Vintage Cuts, Halloween Time. I also used the Halloween Fun stamp set from Crafty Secrets for the corner elements, the stars in the background and the spiderweb with the spider. Then I added a little gold stickles for some sparkle.

Here is a side view of the card so you can see the dimension. Isn't that tiny little spider just so cute! Another thing I did that added a little dimension was to take a circle punch and punch out the center of the vintage cuts with the kitty and put popdots behind it.Here is the inside of the card. I used the other half of the page from the Halloween Vintage Image and Journal Note Booklets for the inside of the card.Ok on to card number two for the day. I had SO much fun creating this next card!! I know it is completely loaded with glitter but I LOVE IT!! Besides when you think of Fairies don't you think of glitter and fairy dust? I know I do!

I took a couple of pictures at different angles so you could see ALL the glitter (stickles). I'm not sure if I had more fun stamping or creating the background on the paper. The paper is from Basic Grey, Sultry 6 x 6 paper pad. I layered several different colors of Adirondack Pigment Ink (9 to be exact!) to get the moonlit night time look. Here is a list of the colors I used and in the order I used them--Lemonade, Shell Pink, Cloudy Blue, Cool Peri, Sail Boat Blue, Purple Twilight, Denim, Eggplant and Pitch Black. Then I stamped all of the images using Pitch Black Adirondack ink. . The stamped images are all from Crafty Secrets, Fairies and Cherish stamp sets. For the sentiment I used several fun stamps from JustRite Stampers and Cryogen White CS. The U was done using the Pre-Inked Stampers, Typewriter Lower Case. Inspire is from the Small Pre-Inked Words Set, Emotions. The word me was done using the letters from Times New Roman Font Set and a Wooden Stamper (from the Curlz Starter Set). The number 2 was done using the Medium & Large Number Set. Dream is from the Small Pre-Inked Words Set, Inspirations.

Here are a couple of close up pictures.To color in the stamped flower clusters I used two Copic Sketch Markers, Deep Magenta RV17 & Willow G24. The blue ribbon is from my stash and the pretty brad is from BoBunny. For the fairy wings I used vellum that was lightly sponged with Lemonade Adirondack Ink and then stamped the images using Pitch Black Adirondack Ink. Once the ink was dry I added some Star Dust Stickles and then cut out and glued them in place. I also used a strip of the vellum along with the new Martha border punch to make a beautiful scalloped edge. I also added gold and star dust stickles to all of the stamped images, around the sentiment and to the images that were still visible in the background paper.

Here is a picture of the Basic Grey DP before I started inking it all up.I LOVE INK!! Here is a side by side picture of the paper before the inking and the finished card.I hope you enjoy the inspiration for today!
