   I didn't forget my WCMD recap, I just have been getting my new laptop set up. Today's card features the only hello theme card that I created on the card making holiday. 

 Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio), pattern paper (American Crafts) die cuts (Pinkfresh Studio, Studio Calico and Pebbles Inc.), manual die (Crafter's Companion) die cutter (Spellbinders)

   Here is a side view. You can see this is a 3D card. Most of the cards I share here are available in my Etsy shop (MJ's Kraze) 

   Here is a closer look at the "box" goodies.

October Stick It Down Reveal

   Welcome to a fun card sketch reveal for October. This month's Stick It Down card sketch is very simple but can be translated for any style. 

      Here is my take on it. I love my layers so I added them to this country-style birthday card. 
Supplies: pattern paper (Carta Bells), sequins (Spiegel Mom Scraps), stickers (Carta Bella), chipboard (Crate Paper), and doily (DoodleBug Designs

      Here is a little angle look. I love adding a little dimension. 

   Be sure to play along at Stick It Down for a chance to win this month's prize to this month's sponsor Confession Of A Paper Addict, COBRA. The shop has over 300 cut files.

Birthday Cards WCMD Recap 2

   Today, I am going to share with you a few of the birthday theme cards that I created on World Card Making Day.  The 3 that I will be sharing with you feature the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

The first one is my type of card, a pop-up explosion box card. This one would be great for a kid's birthday. 
Supplies: cardstock (Bazzill Basics), pattern paper (Simple Stories and American Crafts), stickers (Pretty Little Studio), stamp (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps), ink (Tsukineko)

   The nest card would be a great birthday card for her. It is filled with layers.  I based the card on a sketch from Sketch~N~Scrap sketch 

 Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio), pattern paper (American Crafts), journaling spot (My Mind's Eye). stickers (American Crafts), embossing folder (Momenta), stamp (CAS-ual Fridays Stamp), ink (Tsukineko), sequins (SpiegelMom Scraps), twine (My Mind's Eye), embossing machine (Sizzix)

   The last card is a super simple card that I was in a hurry to do since my favorite show, Heartland, was about to come on. This was also based on a Sketch~N~Scrap sketch. 

Supplies: cardstock (American Crafts and The Paper Studio), washi tape (American Crafts), embossing folder (Momenta), stamp (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps), ink (Tsukineko)

   Thanks for stopping by and reading this long, picture heavy post.

WCMD Recap Post 1

   Yesterday was World Card Making Day and by chance, I was able to participate. Instead, of being out of town like I thought my family stayed home. 
I got to spend all evening in my studio creating cards. I only got a total of 8 cards done but that is good. 
   Here is a card that I created for the Pinkfresh WCMD Challenge #1, favorite technique. It was a little tricky to do my favorite "layers" card since my Pinkfresh stash it super small. For the floral paper, I used the packaging from one of their ephemera.

      I just love the puffy stickers. They add a nice depth to an otherwise flat card.  
   Be sure to pop back as I will be sharing the rest of my WCMD creations.
