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!

Double Happiness

Howdy folks! Here is a card I made from scraps leftover from this project. I’d rather make a new card that put all of that stuff away LOL! I liked the results so much I submitted a sketch of it to Oriental Stamp Art and they are using it as this week’s layout challenge!

 

This could be a wedding or anniversary card. I kept it vague. The focal stamp is the Chinese symbol for Double Happiness. I like that 😀 Maybe because I have twins and 2 is better thank one, or that it is such a nice marriage wish or maybe it just reminds me of Chinese food…hmmm, I could go for some Sechwan Tofu! I stamped the image (Art Neko) in a silvery purple ink and heat embossed it with clear powder, see the shiny!

 

The other bit of shiny goodness is the cardstock rectangle I dry-embossed then clear inked and brushed with purple pearl ex. Boy, I just love purple, I can’t wear it but I’ll use it on a card any chance I get!

Thanks all for today folks, thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
