A “Best Day” Giveaway!

Howdy folks! Happy Monday! I am so excited today because Annette, the owner of About Art Accents, sent me an extra stamp set to give away to one of my blog readers! Here is a card I made with one of the images from the Best Day stamp set:

I used my stamping gear and a few small stamps to create my background and there was enough space in the center to stamp my couple. I wasn’t intending on stamping and coloring on this cheap Georgia Pacific cardstock but hey, it doesn’t look too bad for a 2 cent sheet of paper! I stamped the same flowers on a piece of masking tape, colored it and stuck it right on the card base.  I stamped a small double happiness on a punched stamp square and adhered it with skeleton leaves over the tape. Pretty simple…I wonder if this counts as a one layer card?


So do you wanna win a set of 9 stamps from About Art Accents? Great! Just leave me a comment on this post telling my your favorite About Art Accents stamp…that’s it…really, no strings attached:) Although if you do feel compelled to do a bit of shopping at About Art Accents you can use the code Lindsay10% to save 10% off your order! They have a lot of good stuff on sale right now too! BTW, here is what the winner gets, I’ll draw a name out of a hat next monday so be sure to leave a comment before then!

Good luck & Happy Crafting!

  1. Wow that is beautiful, I love it! What a romantic scene.

  2. Oh Wow Lindsay! I remember when you used this image for your anniversary card for your husband and I had to pick my jaw up off the floor. I was blown away not only by the gorgeous image but by how you colored it! It was so very romantic. This one my just very well be my favorite image. My other favorite is “Garden of Jojiu-In” b/c it reminds me of a local garden/park that I would frequently visit when we lived in Okinawa. Thanks for sharing! ;)

  3. Beautiful card and love the way you can take everyday items and help people see the artistic beauty in them! I am learning to look at the bottom of my work as the beginning, so the Camellia Background is something I could see myself incorporating. So many times I have had to rip apart cards and layouts because I did not “begin at the beginning” :) .

  4. Good morning Lindsay,

    Another beautiful card! One of the things I love from About Art Accents is their selection of different cultures & countries stamps. It makes it easy to really personalize a card for a friend and give them a “taste” of home when they need it.

    Thanks for all the ideas you bring us every day!
    Peace & blessings to you,

  5. Beautiful card Lindsay! Delicate background, and those lovely skeleton leaves! Actually it is all lovely!

    My favorite “About Art Accents” stamp would be the ‘Reiko behind a Fan”. This stamp epitomizes the beauty and mystery of the Orient for me’

  6. About Art Accents offer so many breathtaking stamps. This is a toughie. I like Face of a Woman 4, Retro; Text, The World is a Puzzle; Asian Beauty 5 by Taylored Stamps. They give depth and meaning.

  28. Nice card Lindsay, as always! I love art neko products, not sure how determine a favorite one! I don’t think the tape looks cheesy, in the pictures, you can’t tell it is tape! maybe something fun to use a rollar stamp on?

  49. You as always do beautiful work! I have to say my favorite About Art stamps would have to be the fan stamps, especially the Large Flowered Tasseled Fan.

Apart from the Asian stamps I keep getting from About Art (and I love the moongate ones) I recently bought some silhouette ones (not Asian) which I’m really looking forward to using. Thanks for a chance to win some stamps I don’t have. Thanks for all your ideas.

  55. Fantastic card, wow! It’s hard to pick just one set–but I do love the Cat Puzzle one. Haven’t seen another set like that anywhere. :-)

  56. I love your card. The detail of the stamp is amazing, the lines are clean and the theme is so romantic. I don’t own any of the stamps from About Art Accents but I do like what you did so I may have to check them out. Thanks for all your ideas and lessons, I adore your web site and I have learned so many techniques, you are the best weather I win or not! lol

  61. Hi Lindsay:
    Love to check out all your ideas and lovely work.
    I love the geshias and haiku stamos Annette has.

    Lately I have been coming back from an horrific dog attack but getting immersed in crafts again will be very healing. I miss giving my Thursday Tips and doing the Layout Challenges but hope to start joining into OSA events again very soon.
    Thanks for your inspiration, always,
