Happy Haunting: My World Card Making Day Swap

A couple of weeks ago I shared a super-simple, super-sweet card with you for a Can You Case It? Challenge.  Here’s the card I shared (to read the original post for this project, click here):

Cheer All Year, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, CYCI86When I needed to make 50 swap cards for this weekend’s World Card Making Day event, I knew I wanted to use this card as inspiration.  Why?  Well, I already mentioned the card is super-sweet and super-simple, and aren’t those key components to a card you have to make over and over and over?   Well, another reason I used this card as inspiration is that it showcases Designer Series Paper so well.

For my swap card at World Card Making Day, I CASED this my own Christmas card to make a fun, sweet Halloween card.  I flipped the Designer Series Paper to the bottom.  Here is my card:

On my Christmas card, I featured a medium-sized enamel dot on the left side of the center band.  To create the same look on the mass of cards I created for the swap, I colored some White Perfect Accents with a black Sharpie marker.  Perfect accent!

Here’s a quick shot of the variety of patterns I used from this paper – all Basic Black and Very Vanilla patterns.

  1. What a perfect sketch to show off the darling paper!

  2. Love them.

  3. Great sketch for any season Brian! I’m CASEing it too!!! Have fun today and hugs to all the Royals and Pals. 🙂

  4. Suzie Patt Cullen

    Such a good swap card! Of course! Sounds like you are having a GREAT World Cardmaking Weekend! Of course! 🙂

  5. The DSP Master! All spooky and awesome. xo

  6. I think the best part is that you are making so many cards with the same design yet the use of the DSP meant that every card was NOT the same. I bet everyone loved it, I know I do. Thanks again for the inspiration Brian.

  7. Great cards, Brian. You are always giving us easy tips to make our cards better. I love this design and am going to CASE it too.

  8. When I looked at my swaps I noticed that black “enamel dot” and thought where did he get that! Hoping you would tell us today! I don’t have those pearls but maybe I need to rethink that. Love it all – you, the card, WCMD. Thanks for everything!!!!!

  9. Really cute w/ different dsp. I like the Enamel Dot colored .Guess I NEED to get those next . Sounds like WCMD is a success !

  10. I didn’t get your swap but I saw it and it was typical Brian King awesomeness! WCMD 2015 was a blast!

  11. Mr. Brian,

    These are great, my stamp ladies like the clean crisp lines without getting too thick (that make the postman cranky); thanks for sharing.

    Great cards – all the patterns were fun in the paper pack. I would think less chance of getting bored making 55 of these cuties with the different patterns. Great idea about the white perfect accents – I always hated coloring a pearl – coloring these seems like that is what they were made for. Seems like I use a lot of black ones. Thanks for the tips! Can’t wait to hear more about the weekend!

  13. It just occurred to me that I didn’t get to swap with you! Bummer! Cute card. Great event. 🙂

  14. Love that Haunting card!!!

  15. Great card! Love the simplicity with a great touch of DSP. Will be sure to CASE it soon! Hope all went well this weekend!

  16. Great layout for papers I’m hoarding!
