What a delight and early Christmas present to get the latest issue of CardMaker in my mailbox last week!  So many gorgeous cards, and lots of fun projects by my peeps!!! Also, so many products I put on my "I need to check this out" list!  One being what is used on these beautiful cover projects: does or does not that look like cork paper to you?  Well, it's not, it's glitter paper!)

In addition to gorgeous Christmas and Hanukkah projects, you'll also find lots of idea for Thanksgiving.  I have one, which can be an "anytime" design, using my Wild at Heart set.  The magazine contains my template for inking the stamp with perfectly spaced lettering. :)
I'd never done anything like this with this stamp before,  but love how it turned out!  It's so fun to get inspired by a pub call and experiment with different things, love when they are successful like this. (As usual, it looks so much better with they take the photo, this is mine, hee!)

I'd love to give one away so you can see the gorgeous layout of this fantastic issue, the colors and design just blow me away! I'm lovin' their new look!  Leave a comment below to enter, subscribers get two chances, so subscribe today if you haven't already!  I'll post a winner Wednesday.

Love Card Maker Magazine (just renewed my subscription this morning) Can't live without it. A freebie copy would go to a friend that really needs her own subscription tee-hee.

Melanie, an awesome card. I have liked the inspiration from previous issues of the magazine, but its hard to find so I don't see it very often. Love your stamps and how versatile they are. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the magazine.

Very cute cad Melanie! I do think that paper on the magazine cover looks like cork, but I can also see how it could be glitter!

Susan Sieracki said...

My goodness Melanie, how on earth did you do that? That looks so cool and looks like loads of fun to create. I need to know how you created that card. I love it! I also thought that was cork paper on the cover...I'm a little blown away that it's glitter paper. Congratulations on having your creations displayed like that.

joy said...

You have me enlarging the photo to figure out how you did that! I can't wait to get a copy from my local bookstore! This will be an interesting issue!

Cheryl Wright said...

The magazine looks great, Melanie! I tried to take out a subscription, but they only deliver to the US and Canada. Will have to check if it's available in Australia, but haven't seen it to date.

Loooove your card - it's fabulous!

I used to get this magazine....luv it! Unfortunately, my husband got laid off 2 weeks ago and I quit my job in July because of health issues, so magazines are just not justified in the budget.....so I would luv the chance to win. I really miss this one. Thanks

Deb said...

Rosy Newlun said...

Nice thought I like your thought I tell you something You can Special Summon this card easily if you banish "Obelisk the Tormentor" and "Slifer the Sky Dragon" (with cards like "Gold Sarcophagus") while you control "The Winged Dragon of Ra". Simply use "Return from the Different Dimension" to summon "Slifer" and "Obelisk", and then Tribute all 3 for an Instant Win.ID Card Maker

Very interesting post I like it guys I also share with you some tips hope you like it A business card is an entrepreneur’s best friend, his most valuable marketing tool and an essential element to becoming UNFORGETTABLE. Unfortunately, too many people have business cards that simply blend into the multitude of cookie cutter crap. And that’s a shame, because a business card is more powerful than you think.ID Card Maker
