WOYWW: A Giveaway & Double Pocket Card Tutorial

Howdy folks! Today I have a rubber stamp giveaway for you but first since it is What’s on Your Work-desk Wednesday here is a pic of my desk:

I am right in the throws of making a batch of double pocket cards to sell at the Spring Fair next month. Here is the first one I made using beautiful stamps by About Art Accents. You can win this set of stamps, just leave a comment and I will chose a winner next Wednesday.

That’s it, no strings, pretty easy eh? It’s almost as easy as making this card, I made a quick 3 minute video tutorial to show you how:

I think these would be excellent Mother’s Day cards, especially with the seed packets, you could even include a gift certificate to a nursery so your mom could get some gardening supplies and plants too. I hear spring is on it’s way, tell that to the foot of snow we got yesterday!

Crafty Video: Make Pearls and Dew Drops!

Howdy folks! I’m at it again with the videos, I had a couple friends over to craft last night and I was playing with my glue gun trying to make pearl topped brads and it worked, see them on this card:

Stamps: About Art Accents

So I asked Tracy if she would film me making them along with dew drops so without further ado here is the video:

The stamps on this card are from About Art Accents and I’m not sure about the handmade papers but the brads do a great job of holding down the mesh sheet.

making faux pearls is fun and easy!

I had time (while waiting for paint to dry) to make a quick card using layout #59 from Oriental Stamp Art. Since I am being a good little stamper I made an envelope to match (template below) and since good things come in 3’s I made an altered paperclip too:

Stamps: About Art Accents, PP: American Crafts, Tool: Cricut/SCAL software

Stamps: About Art Accents

The stamps are from About Art Accents. I stamped and embossed the coin rectangle (size d) then cut it into 3 squares and matted them on cream cardstock. I used a black ultra fine bic mark it to go over the “thank you” so it would stand out, The cute mat was cut and embossed using Penny Duncan free svg file from her blog (thanks Penny!)  If you like the square petal envelope I made you can download the template here for free:

Here is  a cut file for design studio users with the George cartridge.

If you don’t have a cricut you can make the same envelope with a circle cutter, see my tutorial here.
