I am a ditz…

… at heart still.  I completely forgot to pick a winner for the stamp set from last week!  Der.  I am so sorry.  But better late than never.  The winner of the Close To My Heart stamp set is Holly!  I will email you. :)

Hey… if I owe anyone a prize or CD of Keith's and you haven't gotten it yet, please email me.  My greatest fear is that something gets lost in the mail and someone never gets it.  Would hate for that to happen!

A few random things…

On my post from yesterday, a few people asked what white pen I used.  It was the white Sharpie pen.  Worked pretty well.

Someone also asked if you can use Cuttlebug embossing folders with the Big Shot.  I believe you can.  I would recommend doing a google search – there is likely even a youtube video on it.

I have gotten emails about the yummy silk ribbon.  It is from Creative Impressions – I believe you can buy it from their site!

Want some amazing inspiration?  Be sure to watch Hero Arts Blog this week.  Shari is sharing some amazing stuff.  Wow.

Just a quick card share using a new Hero Arts stamp.  I did this for the catalog work but didn't like how it turned out so I never sent it in. :)   It is a transparent Hero Arts card over a Chocolate Hero Arts notecard.  Yum.  Love that look.  (The card just took a turn for the worse when I started embellishing… hee. :)

    Thanks for sharing that card Jennifer. That DesignBlock stamp is one of my favs from the latest Hero catalogue. Very jealous of your summer day – here in NZ it is Tuesday afternoon & outside my office window is wind, rain, hail & thunder!

  4. Awesome card…and yes you can use the Big Shot to emboss with the Cuttlebug folders. I do it all the time…

    LOVE that card! The pinks go SO well with the chocolate brown!! I love the stamps too. I’ve been eying those hearts and that background stamp is one of the 2 I’m REALLY wanting to get my hands on. The Hero Arts wish list keeps growing! :)

    Glad to see your back blogging, yours is the first one I read in the morning.
    Love your work.

    Way to go Holly!!! Enjoy your gift:)

    Love the colors on the card. Still a lovely card to my eyes. Glad you did not toss it.

    I was just thinking yesterday morning I should think about a Christmas design for our family card. However, that is as far as I went, a thought. Hard to think about snow, Christmas cookies, trees and gifts when we have great swimming weather here.

    As for using Cuttlebug Embossing Folders in a Big Shot…you most certainly can!!!! After all your enabling I went out and bought a ton of them. They are my new addiction. :) I just found the dots one! So happy! :)

    Congrats on winning the CTMH Stamp set, Holly! Yay!

    Jennifer, you always make me wonder how MY cards and pages look when you don’t like things you do that I think are great. Are you a super-perfectionist or what?! That card is beautiful!
