This weekend brings card makers all around the world together!!
What better way to bond & create beautiful projects.

This day came about because of Paper Crafts magazine. They started this day up because this time of year happens to be the busiest for all cardmakers - getting ready for the holidays.  WCD is celebrated on October 5th but we're starting a day early and sharing some fabulous card inspiration with you today & tomorrow.

So, here's a few cards to get us started today.

The main ingredients for my cards are the beautiful “place cards” from the Black Ice collection. I’m not one to use official place cards for dinners etc so I decided to use the place cards to create a couple of “normal” cards. I trimmed the place cards a bit and layered them onto 2 different patterned papers also from the Black Ice collection and then onto some black cardstock. 

On the card with the tree I also used a sentiment sticker from the “Childhood Memories” collection and some punched hearts. 
And the bird on the other card is made with a die from Marianne Design and a stamp from Unity Stamp Company.

Supplies used: Imaginisce (Black Ice: patterned paper, place cards; Childhood Memories: stickers).
Other Supplies used: Bazzill black cardstock, Unity Stamp Company stamp, Brilliance black stamping ink. Tools: Marianne Design die, Fiskars Big Shot.

I love making cards and the Clean & Simple looks is my total fave.  I just think they have an elegant feel to them.  With an elegant feel in mind I knew that Black Ice would be the PERFECT choice for paper becuase Black Ice just screams elegance!  I also added a touch of color using my I Rock and some hot rocks!

Designers Note: Try using one Snag'em Stamp to create a background on a piece of cardstock.I also place red hearts in the polaroid part of the camera to tie in the sentiment even more.

Supplies: Childhood Memories Patterned Paper, Camera Snag'em Stamp; Other: The Alleyway Stamps (sentiment); The Twinery Twine
