Another Card Contest

Sunday, May 6, 2007
Did you all have a happy Cinco de Mayo/National Scrapbooking Day? I sure did. Hubby and I went out for an early dinner and then to the LSS that had all of their clear stamps 40% off! I got a gorgeous Technique Tuesday Masterpieces of Paisley set and an Autumn Leaves Second Nature set. And while I was walking around a sales gal started talking to me and handed me a 40% off coupon, so I got one of the new Penny Black stamps I've been eyeing. This one is called modesty. All in all, I had a very happy shopping trip!

Okay, so I feel like it's time for another card contest. Anyone want to play? This contest will run until I hit 25,000 hits. The winner will receive a set of 6 Sakura Stardust Twilight pens and a 6x6 Basic Grey paper pad (your choice of styles). Just link your card photo using the sketch below to the comments of this post (or email me). I'll pick a winner once I reach 25,000 hits. For every 1o entries I receive I'll add another winner and prize to the winner's list, so tell your friends. All entries to date will be posted in a slideshow on my blog when I reach 24,500 hits. You may enter as many cards as you like, but only one card per person can win. So if you're ready....here's the sketch and the rules:


Rule #1: Don't flip the sketch.

Rule #2: Top panel must be circular in shape.

Rule #3: Have fun!




And here's my card sample. This one uses Sassafras Lass paper from last month's Self Addressed kit. The Hey Cupcake stamp is A Muse and is colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I highlighted with Stardust and Xmas Red Stickles, then punched out with a Super Jumbo Circle punch and dotted around the edges with my Sakura Black Glaze pen. It's matted on a Mega circle punch and a Basic Black Giga scallop circle punch. I dotted each scallop with a little stardust stickles, too. Brads are Doodlebug Design and ribbon is May Arts.

OMG How cool are you!!! I am on this one! I LOVE the layout...now only if I had my scalloped punch...hmmmm. I will email you my results - and I might even use BROWN *grin*

I love your example...sweet!

tanis said...

How fun! Love your contests! Hopefully you give those of us who don't have a scalloped circle punch (and are trying desperately to get one!!) a fair chance! Cause everyone who does use one in their entry has an unfair advantage (hee hee!)
Fabulous card...(as always)
Thanks for the fun!

I don't know if you remember me from SWISS, I'm thecardpixie on SCS. I just had to say I know which LSS you were talking about cause I work there! I may not have been there yet when you were shopping, but just wanted to say if I am there next time you come, it would be nice to chat a little!

Hi Julee, I am new to visiting blogs, but I saw your lovely sketch on SCS by Steubner and just HAD to do one! I hope my link works... as I said, I am new to this! I had so much fun with the sketch, really beautiful and it definitely called me to use my Lily Kate paper by Basic Grey I have been hording!

Thanks and hugs, michelle
