You're In Our Thoughts Today and some BLOG CANDY
Today I have a card to show and also some blog candy to give away.
First, the card:
My card base is 5" x 7". The base is Worldwin Royal Plum and then I added a layer of HOTP Pink Flourishes. For my stamped image I chose the Celebrations Demi Phrases from JustRite Stampers.
These demi phrases are intended to be used on the 2" wood stamper but I needed more of an oval shape for my card so I tried to put the phrase on my 1 3/4" x 2 5/16" oval stamper and it worked!!!
Then I diecut the phrase and 2 mats using the Spellbinders Classic Ovals & Scalloped Ovals and adhered the phrase to my card. Next I cut a 2 1/2" x 7" piece of the Worldwin Royal Plum and ran it through my Cuttlebug using the Textile embossing folder. I adhered ribbon to the top and bottom edge of the Royal Plum before I adhered it to my card so that I wouldn't have any ribbon edges showing.
The 3 embellishments were diecut using Spellbinders Labels Three and the Dahlia dies. Each layer has popdots in between to give dimension. To finish off my card, I added Kaiser pearls and attached a small ribbon to the top corner.
Now for the good stuff!!!! I have blog candy to give away today. Today I have the 2 3/8"Wood Stamper with Bonus 25 pt font set & center from JustRite Stampers to give away. It has been ONE week since I started my blog!!! It has been a lot of work setting up the blog, trying to figure out what I wanted on my blog, etc. It has also been a lot of fun.
This is where you come in. I would like feedback from you as to what type of projects you would like to see on my blog. Do you want cards, 3-D projects, scrapbook pages, etc.
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me what type of projects you would like to see here. I will draw a name using Random.Org on Wednesday, August 5 at 5 p.m. EST. The winner will win this great set from JustRite Stampers.
Be sure to tell all of your friends. The more feedback I have, the better I can make this blog. Who knows, maybe I might just find some more blog candy to throw in for a second drawing if the response is great enough.
As always, thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate it.
