World CARD Making DAY - - -HOORAY JOY Boris

Although I got a late start to this wonderful celebration, what a day.  I finally, after months of anticipating a chance to go, I visited our Local Scrapbooking/Stamping Store.  WHAT FUN!!  Looks like I have a need to visit more often now that I saw how wonderful it was inside.   The workers there were totally fabulous and were talking with some of the other customers about a Tag Swap later this month....woo hoo!

So, despite my many efforts to dedicate the entire day to Card Making, I just finished my first card (it took all day with all of the interruptions>>>pleasant as they were).  I hopped around BlogLand to see the "goings-on" and decided to join in with the hourly challenges at Inking It Up with Kassidy.   I had wanted to start the challenges in order, so I chose my Holiday Papers first.  But, then I couldn't resist using my brand new stamp that I just received in the mail this last week.    The stamp is Boris from Russia, from Your Next Stamp.    I didn't get to  use the Matryoshka Doll or Bird, but I have ideas for the next time I use this set.

OMG these stamps are fantastic.   
I mean, truly fantastic.  The ease of use and the crisp, clean lines on my paper made it super easy to paper piece Boris together  like I wanted to.  The faces are just so darling and I can't wait to keep inking my stamps up and using them on projects.

So, after piecing him together, I used the same 3 designer papers (all from my Holiday Harverst paperpad by Cloud 9 Designs) for the rest of my card.  I used the sketch over at YNS for Challenge #52 going on right now.  You have until October 11th to get in on the action with this challenge and you might just win a set of YNS stamps for yourself!!!  I am sure you will love them the first time you try them.  I used a black card stock as my base, added some Studio G glitter to Boris' hat, crinkled some cream colored satin ribbon at the bottom, stamped JOY (by TPS Studio) across the white paper behind Boris , and finished it off with a handmade rosette flower and button.
