The burlap ribbon I used can be found here at Papermart. The card takes about 10 minutes to make and I decided to film a quick video and share a bunch of stamping tips with you from how to make an embossing pouch (and save yourself $12!), how to store white cardstock for stamping and an easy coloring idea! Have a look:

All you need to do to win the stamps is to leave a comment on this blog post by June 25th 2013, I’ll draw a name on the 26th. That’s it, easy peasy! Good luck, thanks for playing and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Hi
    For some reason I cannot get your videos to play. All I get is a blank black box. Any ideas?
    So sad because I really wanted to learn your last two techniques. 😦

    1. try back in a little while, or click the “youtube” button on the bottom right of the screen to watch it on youtube. I think it is a buffering problem or it is because a lot of people are trying to watch at once;)

  5. I enjoy and learn so much each time I watch you do something. I have had my embossing buddy for years but I did like the tip, who would have known that all it would take is a little corn starch. Learn something new every day:) Thanks so much!

  11. Hi I like the card and the way you have used the decorated glass beads for the display. I’m having the same problems with viewing furniture video too, and on YouTube, but I think that it does sometimes take a while for the videos to go live.

  26. Hi Lindsay,

    Love the card and am so grateful for the cornstarch tip! I bought some “anti-static” powder loose in a jar a while back and knew there had to be a less expensive and less messy way to help with embossing.

    You rock!
