Happy Monday… with a yummy giveaway…

Hope everyone is well!

I have a winner of the BasicGrey stamp set.  The lucky one is… Michelle Jadaa!  I will email you.

Thanks for all your ideas.  I will share some over the next few weeks.

I am off to California tomorrow for some meetings at Hero Arts.  Can't wait to see my Hero girls there – I have been missing them.  Just a quick post for tonight.

Quick share.  This was from a class a few weeks ago.  To do those snowflakes, I stamped with Versamark ink on vellum.  Then I traced over the stamped images with an dry embossing tool.  I then added it to the card upside down, so the raised area is up.  (If you want to see a video showing this technique, click HERE.)  The trees are stamped on the card behind the vellum in blue – looks like faraway trees.  This card is small – 4.25"x2.5"

All Hero Arts products.

And a giveaway!  Woohoo.  I love doing this. :)   I have two of these yummy sets from Making Memories – want to give one away.  Here's your chance… just leave a comment on this post by Tuesday at 11:59pmEDT telling me if you are a scrapbooker, cardmaker or both.  Here is the great Making Memories set…


I will be posting from CA, including more scraproom stuff.  See ya soon!

    I am a card maker but more of a general paper crafter.

    I am a card maker for over 15 years but am attempting scrapbooking, too. If I leave out the materials, I get to the pages. You are definitely an inspiration. Can’t believe you are making a video on the plane. You are amazing!

    I’m a scrapper and a card maker, although being a student in nursing school leaves me little time for either. Oh, how I’m looking forward to Winter Break I desperately need a day of nothing but pretty papers, stamps, and creative time.

  5. Monica Brown

    Both! No time lately, but hopefully I can steal some time soon!



  6. Both! Although I find myself making a cards a lot more often these days but I really need to get caught up on my scrapbooking!

  7. I can’t tell if I really can still enter for this stamp set, but I’ll at least post that I’m a “both”. :)

  8. Kirsty

    I’m mainly a scrapbooker who thinks I should also be a cardmaker to use up some of those piles of supplies!

    I am a scrapbooker. I rarely send out cards, so I have not been too interested in making them.

    I am both a scrapbooker and new card maker!
    It was you and Hero Arts that turned me into card making. Thank-you!

    I’m both, but in general I make more cards than I scrapbook. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I love them. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I’ve been a scrapbooker since 1997 and have only made a few cards. I want to learn more about stamping. I have to admit I’m a collector of stamps because I’m so scared to try. You truly inspire me and I feel I’m ready to “give it a go”.

    These are divine stamps, I am more a scrapbooker than a cardie, but love to dabble. Find your blog inspires me to give it a shot.
