Welcome to Day 3 of my World Card Making Day Week. Today I have some enabling, a video, card and a giveaway.
First, the winner of Day 2's giveaway is Jenny from Louisville, KY. I will email you!
Now, some enabling. (Which – for those who are new around here – means that I tell you about some great stuff that I think you should try. 🙂
1. Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Don't tell him I said this – it will just go to his head 😉 – but his inks are just delicious. I love how you stamp with them and as they dry, they look so soft and luscious. I am not a big distresser, so I use them for straight up stamping. Love them and use them a lot. (Colin even loves "Mr. Tim's Inks.") May I recommend my faves? Broken China, Fired Brick and Shabby Shutters. Must-haves for sure. Seriously – you need them even if you aren't a distresser. (And, Tim is a good guy – I like to support the good guys. 🙂
2. Ink Applicator
I have enabled this one before, but it is worth a second enabling. Get it. And the refills. A great tool… be sure to get the FOAM applicator like THIS. I have a video showing something fun to do with it HERE.
3. Kraft Notecards
These are a must-have. I use these notecards all the time. They are the perfect kraft, with matching envelopes. They work with any and all styles – I love them!
Now, here is a video showing how to make the following card using these goodies I love so much. I must note that this card was 100% lifted and inspired by Shari Carroll – my all-time favorite stamper. She said it would be ok for me to share this here – thank you, Shari! Smooch. You can see her amazing card HERE.
Here is the video and card… (For high quality, double click on the video so you can go watch it over on YouTube. Then click "watch in high quality" right under the video. It makes a big difference!)
