World Card Making Day

Hi everyone and HAPPY WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!

How fun is this day?  My sister looked at me like I had 10 heads when I asked her to watch the boys so I could run to Craft Warehouse for WCMD!  Hahaha!  Believe me, nobody outside our crafty little world knows this day exists!  Oh and if you are new to my blog and taking the Paper Crafts Blog Tour -welcome, welcome, welcome!

I have a special collection of circle cards to share today.  I decided to make cards to honor 4 of my favorite stamping companies.  After all, I could NOT make cards and be the stamper I am today without these amazing stamps to work with.

First up, VERVE STAMPS.  Sigh, you all know my long standing love for Verve.  Julee has the most amazing designs and I plan to be on her design team until she pries her stamps from my cold dead hands -LOL!  My card uses the flower image from Dream Big and the sentiment is from Happy Hello.  Pattern is Cosmo Cricket, Pixie-Licious.

Next we have IPPITY STAMPS.  I love love love the fun whimsical feel to Ippity/Unity designs.  Soooo much fun to work with.  I am proud to be an Ippity Chick.  This card uses the set, Just Wanted to Say from their very first release.  To this day, it's one of my go-to Ippity sets!  The pattern paper is PTI's Dotty Biscotti.

Third, we have FLOURISHES.  Again, I have been a huge Flourishes fan dating back to my early SCS days.  LOVE their designs, always have!  This Halloween card uses the new, Witching you a Happy Halloween set. 

Last, but not least TECHNIQUE TUESDAY.  Back in 2007, my mom bought me very first Tech Tuesday sets -Loves me Still and Master Pieces of Paisley, now retired, and I have been a fan ever since!  This card uses the cutie patootie set, Wise Guys.  The pattern paper is Basic Grey, Pyrus.

Thank you so much for stopping by and HAPPY WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!!!

  9. Gorgeous! Your cards are just gorgeous! I LOVE that round design with the scalloped edges. It's so cool to see 4 different takes on the same design. You have really given me a ton of inspiration for WCMD. Thanks so much!

  10. Ah yes, the Queen of Circle cards shows why she reigns :) Four fabulous cards, Michelle! Love the Verve card (wonder why LOL!). The silver pearls around the flower center are a great idea (permission to case?!) Had to laugh at your comment about Julee prying them out of your cold hands LOL! Amazing how four cards can look so different with the same layout. Fabulously done! Hope you scored some good deals at the Craft Warehouse!
