WCMD Week: Day 1 of Giveaways


We are celebrating the World Card Making Day with a week of prizes here.  Today is Day 1.  I have some enabling, a share and then the giveaway!

1. Scallop Circle Punches
I get a lot of use out of my scallop circle punches.  A lot.  I use the Paper Shaper and Marvy ones… and now they have big sizes.  Paper Shaper has a 3" one (my fave) and the Marvy comes in 3 1/2"!  Perfect for circle cards like THIS one and the one below.  If you are having trouble finding them, call Carol at Stampers Corner.  She will ship at actual shipping cost and she has them all.  Good deal.  I just asked her to send me the 3 1/2" plain circle one – need it!  These get a lot of use in my cardmaking and scrapbooking.

2. Studio Calico Number Stamp
WOOHOO!  Awesome news!  Studio Calico now has some of their stamps for sale individually – including the number stamp!  Get them while you can – I think they mentioned the supplies are limited.  I also love the butterfly one.  Can't wait to use it.  Go HERE.

3. Liquid Pearls
This is a new addiction of mine.  Liquid Pearls look fabulous with Hero Arts Pearls.  Such a fun accent.  I love to use it for the bodies of butterflies.  You can get all the colors HERE at Ellen Hutson – a great, fast online store I am starting to frequent. :)


4. Melissa Frances Rub-Ons
I love little expression rub-ons to use for cardmaking.  My favorites?  Melissa Frances.  They have some super cute ones that are the perfect size, the perfect style and the perfect quality.  Here are some of my faves:

Here is a card I made using all these goodies.  I also used the Seeing Spots Kit from Scrapbook Bakery – such great colors.

So… now it is time to send out some goodies.  Melissa Frances was so generous to send these for a giveaway!  There are a bunch of my favorite rub-ons for one lucky winner.  Just leave a comment on this post by 11:59pmEDT on Monday night telling me your current favorite color combo for card making.  I will then post a winner on Tuesday.  Here they are, held by my assistant, Audrey, during a break from  a serious round of nurfball shooting in the backyard… [EDITED TO ADD: GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED.]

  46. Wow — I was so excited to be able to buy the number stamp from Studio Calico, but I cannot believe they charged $7.25 to ship a tiny stamp that cost 60 cents to ship.
