Day of the Month Card Club - World Card Making Day

Hi Everyone,

This month we are celebration "World Card Making Day" - that means it's an anything goes topic, but it should be a card, of course. Actually that day should be every day....
 For more detail on this day go visit our challenge blog.

We also have a Guest Designer with us Christiane Wo , who was voted winner in challenge #6. Her delightful blog is called eye can stamp, although she has abandoned her blog lately and is now just found on Instagram under the name Vivaldis Frauchen. I also love her sense of humor and she makes really fabulous cards. If you don't know her blog you might want to pay it a visit. It will not disappoint, I promise!

 Now here is my inspiration card:

I bought the September card kit from hero Arts, since I needed to have the cover die with all those windows. It's 25 of them -perfect for an Advent calendar. But for now we are celebrating Halloween soon and the kit is actually a Halloween kit. 

Here you see the outside with all the little windows:

And some more views of the inside.

This is not a quick card to make - beware! But I think the effort is totally worth it!

Besides that - we are celebrating World Card Making Day - that is indeed a very special day, so it needs a special card!

I am counting on you! You have until the end of the month (10/31) to do so.
Please link up HERE

This is a voting challenge - the winner will be determined by vote. Everybody can vote, even if you didn't play along. Voting starts on the first of the following month - June first. 
The 3 participants with the most votes will win. 
The winners will be showcased on the 5th of each month and the new challenge will start each month on the seventh.
And to make it more fun and appealing it would be great if you could comment on at least 3 other participants - perhaps you'll find some new friends that way. 

There is always a reason to celebrate!

You have really blown me away with this beautiful presentation Cornelia. I can see so much work has gone into this masterpiece. Love the cover with all its bits and then I look inside and see what beauty you have created here. So colourful and again more bits and bobs. A brilliant halloween piece.

How fun and fabulous, Cornelia ... there's so much brilliant detail on one small card! Love how it's understated in it's 'closed' form ... and when all those doors are opened, the insides positively glow! Spooky and so clever! Hugs, Anita :)

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
