October Show & Share

Hello friends!

It gives me great pleasure to start October's Show & Share!
I am amazed at the responses and would love to continue this monthly feature.
The main goal is to challenge you to create and share with our fellow card-makers.
I am hoping that all participants in this monthly feature can give each other some blog love, offer encouragement and get inspired! Are you gamed!?

This is how it works:
Each month, I will post the link on the 9th day of the month and it will end on the 29th day of the month. On the last day of each month, ONE winner will be announced.
To participant in this monthly feature: 
1. link up your new creation(s) and share it here in the gallery. You can use Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest... or blog for your projects.

2. you are most welcome to use WHATEVER in your stash to create. Old or new products are all welcome. You do not need to purchase new products to play. Use what makes you happy.

3. try out new techniques ,styles and productsThis is your chance to show off what you make!

4. please link to my blog and mention that you are taking part in Virginia's "Show and Share" and use the blog logo if you can. I hope this will help spread the joy of "show and Share" with more card-makers!

5. please share Basically one project a week is good if you want to link as many as you can.

You can now find this monthly feature link at my side banners. Simply click on it and you can find this very post. I chose 9th day of the month as a cycle because I was born on Dec. 9th.

This month's prompt is "All About Details".

I am sure that you are all familiar about adding details. You know, using embellishments such as gems, sequins, Liquid Pearl, glitter, shimmer sprays...etc for your final touches. I have a few simple examples to share to get your creative juices flowing.  I am using all the ephemera from October Spellbinders Card Kit. This month's kit includes HUGE selections of embellishments. If you like to mass produce set of Christmas cards, this kit is a great option.

Card 1: without the added droplets on the baubles and clear sequins in the background, this card will be uninteresting and well...flat.

Merry Christmas 

Card 2: without the gold sequins and pop-up dimensions, this card would look just like another dollar store cards.

Season's Greetings 

Card 3: without the added zig zag stripes and red sequins, this card will look simply... plain.


Card #4: without the gradient of background and snowflakes and stickers, this card would be wintery and interesting.

Making Spirit Bright

The torn pattern paper adds that extra oomph! Makjing Spirits Bright

What do you think? It's all those details that make a card design SING.

Great examples to show how much the extra details like drops, sequins, ribbons etc. add to cards. As they say, it’s all in the details!
