World Card Making Day!

Happy World Card Making Day! I'm not showcasing anything today with a sponsor, but just had some extra crafts I made this week that I wanted to share.
First- this cute snowman card is made with Bobunny papers, and some Reminisce stickers, I layered the mat with a yellow scallop and popped it up with some thick chipboard- great way to use those extra sheets of chipboard from pads of paper!

Next- it's not a card - but along the lines of telling you about our new craft cave, LOL!- love the name, I had extra fabric left over from recovering the chair pads . I pulled out an extra frame, so I sprayed it with adhesive, then covered the frame. I then painted some bobunny chipboard strips lime green and added glitter to them, after I cut them to size. I finished with some green gems from K&CO. This was made to go in the craft room, just as decor, but I also ended up having enough fabric to recover a throw pillow and I sewed that for my youngest, Annalise. These are both now in her room! She was thrilled to come home from school and see her new decor items! She's been sleeping on the pillow all week!

Next, is this halloween card with Bobunny Boo Crew line. I used a frame that I cut out of a journal spot, just trimming off the extra at the side of the card. ( I also popped this up with some old chipboard) I added a little scallop sticker and fussy cut the two treaters out of the paper pop dotting them as well. The letter stickers are Bobunny and Making Memories. I cut out two bats as well, then I added googlie eyes to each of the people and bats.

This card took on a life of it's own! I just kept adding more and more and more to it- I couldn't seem to stop. I guess when you aren't happy with how something is turning out- you can either give upand throw it away- or keep at it until you make something decent. This uses all bobunny stuff- cept that brown edged journal spot, and the flowers- the journal spot is Anna Griffin- and the flowers are from a silk spray of hydrangea's that I took apart. I also used a small clear sticker from American Crafts. The paper is from Beautiful life, and the cardstocks are Double Dot. The leaf and rubons are old Bobunny- I love love the paper leaves they used to sell-
Next is this card featured yesterday on the Bobunny Blog. I used the St. Nick collection, cutting out my own holly leaves, and fussy cutting that adorable santa car. I doubled the ribbon on the card to make it more substantial, and added some jingle bells to a button. Isn't that a cute card!

Here is a close up- so you can see how I've popdotted the car up and added glitter to the edges of the holly.
Thanks for dropping in- hope you have a fabulous weekend!

These are all fab! I LOVE the idea of saving the backs of paper pads. I never thought of that- duh!
