ScrapMart: World Card Making Day

Today is World Card Making Day and I am pleased to be part of the bloggers participating!


I created a couple of cards that were from the Sugar Hill Collection of FarmHouse Paper Company, a new paper company that made its debut at the 2012 Summer Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) trade show in July.

Pumpkin Circle Card by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Patterned Papers and Chipboard Stickers: FarmHouse Paper Company (Sugar Hill Collection); Ink: Ranger (Walnut Stain Distress Ink); Rhinestones: Want2Scrap and Prima; Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S4-331 Pumpkin Circles, S5-120 Fall Foliage and S4-385 Little Leaves Sets); Adhesives and Tool: ScraPerfect (the Best Glue Ever and the Embellie Gellie)

 
I also embellished the inside of the card with a maple die cut from S5-120 Fall Foliage and a chipboard sentiment from FarmHouse Paper Company. The edges were also inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

Cherry Mason Jar by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Patterned Papers: FarmHouse Paper Company (Sugar Hill Collection); Star Charm: WithCharm.com; Twine: May Arts; Ink: Ranger (Walnut Stain Distress Ink); Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S4-374 Country Charm); Adhesives: ScraPerfect (the Best Glue Ever) and SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L (3D Foam Squares)

I made another shaped card using S4-374 Country Charm set's jar die. LOVEd how this turned out - very simple yet has just enough impact :0)

Today, I am attending a mini charity crop for Crop For a Cause, Making MS a Memory. I've been going for five years since the beginning. SO PROUD of my sweet friend Laura for organizing such an amazing event! The big one is Saturday, March 2nd 2013 - come join us if you are in the Chicago area!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy World Card Making Day! Here's the blog roll call if you are wanting some inspiration!
