Wedding Cards and Retiring Stamp Set Contest

Just a reminder about the retiring stamp set contest. There is only 1 entry so far but I know that more will come in! Just browse through your catalogue and make a list of 10 stamp sets you think will be on the last chance list which comes out on June 1. Email me your list and you could win a free stamp set if you have the most correct.

Now, onto today's cards. I created these cards for a stamp-a-stack I did a month ago. With the wedding season approaching, hopefully you can use these for some ideas.

This first card uses an image for Fun and Fast Notes. The background paper is textured and I used the big shot to do this. The image is coloured using the Stampin' Write markers.

This second card looks much better in real life. It uses the Manhatten Flower embossing die for the big shot. I embossed a piece of vellum cardstock and attached it to a piece of Apricot Appeal cardstock and wrapped a piece of organza ribbon around it. This is a super quick but stunning card.
Remember to enter the contest and check back here on June 1 to view the Last Chance List and the winner of the contest.

Retiring Stamp Set Contest

Here are the details for the contest that I mentioned. It is super easy to enter!

On June 1, the Last Chance List is being revealed. The stamp sets on this list will no longer be available after June 30.

What you need to do to enter the contest is look through your current catalogue and send me a list of 10 stamp sets (excluding hostess sets) you think will be on the list. The person with the most correct stamp sets will win a hostess set called Eventful from the 2007 Fall/Winter Catalogue.

All entries must be received by Saturday May 30 to qualify to win. In case of a tie, I will make a draw. This is such an easy contest to enter so grab your catalogues and take a browse. If you don't have a catalogue, you can view it online by clicking the link on the right hand side. The winner will be announced on Monday June 1 on here so make sure you check back.
