Vintage Samples and More Blog Candy Give Aways!

Wow - I have some great samples to share and
2 places you can enter win more our of our new Vintage Image & Journal Notes!

Anna Wight from our design team is also an amazing photographer and the photos she has taken on her farm in Texas are such a wonderful mix of breathtaking, funny, amazing and so fascinating that I’m in total awe every time I visit her Photo a Day Gallery HERE! This is a photograph of some newly hatched chicks.

Daisy, one of their prize cows recently gave birth and Anna has been posting the news and photos on her blog but she still found time to make a couple of adorable cards using our new Childhood and Summertime Image & Journal Notes Booklets.

Anna says she loved how fast and simple this card was to create and just look how adorable it turned out! She chose the little fishing boy with his puppy from our Childhood Booklet and picked multiple papers to layer it with.

She loves the texture and dimension that sewing on paper adds and when she doesn't use her sewing machine, she often pulls out her serrated edge tracing wheel to add faux stitching to her cards.

Check out the other card Anna made on her blog, which she created using a sweet image from our Summertime book, plus you can get the details on how she created it and also ENTER to WIN her FREE BLOG CANDY in a full set of our 4 Image & Journal Booklets she is drawing a winner at 8 pm Central Thursday May 1, 2008.

You can see how great the tracing wheel worked on the edges of this Sweetchips dress that Anna jazzed up! She says if you are trying to add faux stitching to plain paper, just put a piece of chipboard under your paper to add some cushion.

The rotten part is someone stole Anna's wonderful little dress album from our booth last year at the CHA show! I was so sad, because it was like a little piece of art, all stamped inside and sooo pretty!

Try clicking your mouse on the dress and - hopefully it will get bigger so you can see the faux stiching detail around the edges. The papers are from our Earthy Paper Pad and the flourish stamp is from our Cherub Stamp set.

Michelle Wooderson from our design team has also created two stunning cards using our Birds & Botanicals Booklet and she is doing a double draw!

You can enter here on her blog HERE and she will pick a winner this Saturday. Don't forget to leave your name and check back. I'm still waiting to hear from Lois who won HERE on Janel's draw! Lois, if you read this please email or call our toll free number 1-888 597-8898. We need your address!

Here is one of Michelle's cards but you can see her other tulip card and more photos, plus get the supply list and details on how she created the cards on her blog.

There was also a challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers to create a card using any of our supplies and use some type of flowers on the card to celebrate the coming of Spring! Lori Washburn has been super sweet to volunteer and create a weekly challenge. The 6 samples these ladies posted were each so nice I had to add a link to see them HERE!

Now Lori has posted a new card challange on Splitcoast and the only rules is to keep your card square shaped and use some of our Heartwarming Vintage products. You can see the 5 awesome samples posted so far but anyone can join in the fun here!
