Welcome back, my dear friends, to Weekly Scrapper! Today is a special day because it is “World Card Making Day”! The party started yesterday with our “Freebie Friday” post, so if you haven’t yet entered to win that great prize of cardmaking supplies, make sure to visit our post from Friday HERE. For today’s celebration we are featuring all cards, and as I share these beautiful ideas and great techniques, my hope is that you will find some wonderful inspiration. Isn’t it hard to believe that it is the first day of October? We are at the very beginning of the holiday season, and dare I say that I am already starting to get into the holiday spirit?! Now is a good time to begin to think of your holiday cards so I included a beautiful Christmas card below. It’s never too early to start getting your ideas together.
This card was created using a fun and unique technique called marbling. What a stunning way to create some soft colors by using shaving cream and re-inkers. What a great effect; I absolutely love this technique! It never surprises me what fun ideas cardmakers come up with to use on projects. This technique is also a wonderful way to create lovely backgrounds. I think you will love this and be very happy with the end results. And did I say it was easy, too?
The second card was made with the leftover piece from the die cut above, using the marbling effect for the background. Don’t you just love it when something so simple comes together and looks so beautiful? If you have never done the marbling technique, you must give it a try! Be sure to stop by the Stamping With Loll blog so you can get your products for these gorgeous cards and create some of your own. Have fun with this technique!
When I think of hydrangeas, I think of fall. These flowers and leaves are colored so beautifully, giving the card such an elegant look. I just love stamping and watercoloring and they combine to make it possible to create a piece of art. The completed project is like a tiny painting!
Debby has really outdone herself with this watercolored card. I highly recommend you stopping by and checking out her other projects, too.

Halloween is one of my very favorite holidays! I look forward to this time of year from the decorating to enjoying the fun gatherings of friends and family, and also sending out some Halloween cards! Halloween is just around the corner so now is the time to start making those spooky cards. It is always so fun to receive a handmade treasure in the mail!

It isn’t too early to get started on your Christmas cards! Wouldn’t it be nice to have them done early so you can avoid the stress and enjoy some holiday spirit? I say it every year and I never get it done, but (drum roll, please) I do have to say I have started on mine already this year! Yay for me, right?
