Video and giveaway!

Thanks for stopping back by for our “thank you” week!

Yesterday, I shared some fun and colorful designs.  Today I have some softer projects.  In fact, I created two thank you cards that incorporate holiday stamps, but in a very subtle way.  The cards also demonstrate something fun that you can do with our new shadow stamps and inks - a technique called kissing. :)  And how better to show techniques than with a video…

Here are the two cards.  (Click to see it bigger.)  You can see the grid pattern on the leaves, caused by kissing the new Three Ferns and Screen Shadow stamps together.



Oh, and you may be wondering where the holiday stamps are in those two cards.  For the “many thanks” card, I stamped the word JOY repeatedly from the holiday Clear Design Holiday Wishes set.  On the “thank you” card, I stamped the Flourish Christmas Tree in different directions to create a swirly background.  Since these are subtle, they could be used for any card.

And, of course, I had to ask my favorite stamper, the wonderful Shari Carroll, to create for us this week.  I am in awe at her creations - aren’t they magnificent?  Wow!

Thank you, Shari!

I have one more great card for you today.  I was blog hopping a week or so ago and came upon a very creative card by Kimber McGray.  I just LOVED what she did with the Flourish Christmas Tree on THIS card.  So, I asked her to create another with this technique for us!  Here it is.  She was so clever to cut the tree to varying heights.


Card by Kimber McGray.

And, not only did Kimber create a great card for us, but she also gave me something to giveaway here!  She has cards in the CardMaker’s SketchBook… and a copy of the book could be yours!  Just leave a comment here by 11:59pmPST on Friday telling me a favorite gift you have given to someone and I will pick a winner of this…


(Oh, and I hear that Kimber will be having a Hero Arts giveaway on her blog today, too…)

Glad you stopped by today,

    My favorite gift I gave a friend was flavored coffees (which she loves) in 3 plain round tins (which I’d love to re-use/re-purpose/re-decorate). We laughed that it’s the gift that keeps on giving because she said when they were empty she’d return them to me to decorate & I told her I’d return one to her all newly decorated!!! I knew she’d appreciate my sense of giving a gift I knew she’d partially “re-gift” back to me!!! To make it even more fun, I used a piece of Christmas DP inside the sheer fabric sleeve that she could re-use once it was openedm as well as snowflakes/sparkly brads and ribbons to match that paper! We both had fun with this gift & I got to enjoy some yummy coffee with her too!!! ;-)

    The favorite gift I’ve ever given was a heritage album about my maternal grandparents. I gave a copy to my brother and mother for Christmas the year my grandmother passed away.

    I love it when I come up with a gift for my hubby that he doesn’t expect! It’s so fun to surprise him and see the look on his face when he opens the package. I’ve managed to get him a few times and it’s fun every time!

    Hello, Jennifer! I love this blog and I’m always here to see the new techniques. My favorite gift given last Christmas was a 12 x 12 album, with 36 pages, to my sister. All these pages were about my nephew and niece and I’ve been doing this album during all the last year. My sister loved it!

    My favorite gift was my home made vinegar with special tags on each bottle telling them how to use it. I also put a packet of dressing mix with each bottle. Salads for awhile. Now they are demanding it each year!

    My favorite gift was turning someone on to rubber stamping and then giving them a new set to play with! It is always so fun to show them all the cool ways you can embellish a simple set (Hero Arts, of course!)
