"FALL FUN" Cardz TV Stamps

I so love this stamp set. The Pumpkin is paper pieced. all the patteren paper is DCWV Harvest Gathering paper. Cardz TV Stamps really does make crafting fun and easy. This card is a 3x3 inch card. I do believe the yellow mat is 2 1/2x2 1/2. The rosette is cut at 1x10 I think. Sorry I dont remember and cant find the paper I wrote the info down on. I have a video on the rosette which can be seen HERE
 
Here is the inside of the card. I used the same mat as on the front. I also added the white stich marks on both the inside and outside of the card.

 
I hope you have be inspired to take this challenge this week at Cardz Tv. I cant wait to see what everyone makes. Thank you for stopping by and please head over to Cardz Tv.

World Card Making Day

If you are looking for Cradz Tv Stamp Challenge "Button and Boos" click HERE

Today is World Card Making Day. So I did what any card maker does and made a card. I hope you like what I made, but before I post my card I wanted to post a video that I made Thursday night. Its not perfect but it was fun making it. My oldest daughter even helped by holding my phone to record it. So thank you Katie.
 



Ok and now for my card, using the rosette I made in the video.

 
When I made this card I was just playing around with an old book that was falling apart and ended up with this card. I think it turned out great. So am going to enter this into Pause Dream Enjoy Unexpected Crafting Challenge!
 
Also I used Cardz Tv "Encouraging Thoughts" Stamp set which you can find HERE
 
Until Next Time
