Liar, liar...

...pants on fire!  I KNOW!  I told you I wouldn't have time to create today!  But I was so bummed not to make a card on WORLD CARD MAKING DAY that I had to participate!  So...I made two! ;)  They are both inspired by this card by Victoria and some color challenges going on out there currently.

Here's the first~

(A witch--the first costume I remember wearing!)

Well, let's start with the colors--I decided my pop of plum would be in my stamping and rhinestones.  I stamped all the images (from Graphic 45) with a deep plum color, then covered each panel with Versamark and embossed the entire piece of paper with kaleidoscope embossing powder for shine.  I dry embossed the black on black with a spider web folder from Stampin' Up! and added some bling.  Ta da!  Although I'm not 100% in love with it...but I am with my next card!

Card two~

This one was my original idea when I saw Victoria's card.  I wanted kraft cardstock with some pops of color and the colors at Dynamic Duos were perfect!!!  I just used dollar stamps picked up from JoAnns or some such store, stamped the panel, dry embossed my kraft on kraft with a woodgrain folder and then added a sentiment of thanksgiving (perfect for the Gratitude Campaign).  Voila!

There you have it!  My offerings for World Card Making Day!!!  I hope you join in these fabulous challenges and that you've been inspired to create today!  Happy stamping! :)

Hi Mynnette! Wow! That witch card is totally awesome! I love the black background and the starry panel behind the cute witch!

The second card is beautiful! That recessed panel of leaves looks gorgeous with those colors you used. I see why you are in love with this one!
