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.

Hi! Welcome to the blogging world. I am new too. I found you @ Just-Rite. I would love to see 3D projects. I love to make gifts to give away. The holidays are coming and what a perfect time to give to the people we care about. Have fun and enjoy!

Hi, Angela! I LOVE cards (like the gorgeous one in your very first post!), so I'd love to see MORE!!! I STILL don't own any JustRite stamps, so that's HIGH on my wish list (along with all the Spellbinders goodies I can get my hands on)!!! I'll send some friends by to your new blog!!!

Hi Angela! Congrats on the new blog. You already have over 500 hits! I love the Autograph book and the paper clips projects you did so I guess I like seeing more 3-d projects (your cards are beautiful as well lol). I've added myself as a follower to keep updated. Thanks and good luck!!

Wow have you been busy -so many projects so little time - love the blog - I'm still procrastinating about starting one - your work is great. Would like to see some more 3D project(loved the basket) and cards always cards - I've only recently discovered JustRite stamps and already have 4 sets which I use all the time but haven't got any font sets yet so they would be great.

Kathy said...

Your card is really pretty. I really like all the layers. I too would like more 3D projects. I don't do scrapbooking or much cards but love to make stuff out of plain ole paper. How fun is that making something out of nothing.
