MACM – Merry Christmas + Giveaway #1

Hi all!

I’m planning five giveaways this week, so stay tuned. I’ll have details at the end of this entry. :)

This week’s Make a Card Monday came about because I wanted to use the Bitsy Flower stamp set from Basic Grey. So cute! I love their Urban Prairie line of papers right now that coordinate with this set, so when I saw the whole stamp set–I couldn’t help myself!

The swirls are sort of formal looking, but also very playful. I thought that would be perfect for a Christmas card. I also broke out that Colorbox ink that I used in last week’s Finally Friday video–the gold ink. Seriously, people. This ink is awesome. They also have a silver ink! I’ll have to work that one into a card sometime soon. :)

Oh, and my tip about the embossing powder in today’s video? Here’s more details… I have a box of fabric softener dryer sheets that I keep with my craft supplies. If I remember to, I’ll always gently wipe across the card stock before I stamp in VersaMark. Then when I apply the embossing powder, it doesn’t stick as much to non-stamped areas. Just a tip. :)

And onto the video! As usual, you can view it in higher quality over at YouTube (just click on “watch in high quality” below the video).

Supplies – Old Olive, Real Red, and Very Vanilla card stock, Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon, embossing powder (Stampin’ Up!); Christmas Colorbox Queue ink and Merry Christmas stamp (Hero Arts); Bitsy Flower stamp set (Basic Grey).

Okay! Giveaway details… I’m doing giveaways as a thank you for all your support with the Virtual Card Club. I had a great response and I can’t wait to get going on next month’s projects. :)

So, each day this week (Monday-Friday), I’ll be giving away a few things. Just leave a comment (be sure to leave an email address you can be contacted at–it won’t be published here, I just need it to contact you), and you’ll be entered in the drawing. Please only one comment per person. :)

And yes, international crafters are welcome to enter, too! :)

Today’s giveaway is…

A pack of Bazzill Dotted Swiss paper (Plum Pudding Trio) and Sassafrass Lass In a Stitch buttons (Green). I love this stuff! BTW, in the picture below, the dotted paper is enlarged quite a bit. The dots are actually quite small. :)
