Someone should have been recording my reaction when I found out that Lawn Fawn was going to be releasing dies. It was something like founding out I’d just won a small lottery jackpot. “Oh boy oh boy oh boy!” Or something like that.
I was especially excited for the Quinn’s ABCs dies because I can’t recall exactly how many times I’ve cut out each individual letter with a tiny pair of scissors, it was a lot. See, I really love fussy cutting, but there’s only so many times you can cut out the same stamped image before you want to stab something (a pillow? the card? you know). So this was like the angels looked down upon me and said “You shall not have to cut out another Quinn’s letter.” And I sang for joy. ;)
This card is a spin-off of the card I made when Lawn Fawn announced the dies. I wanted to make a card that I could quickly and easily recreate with the dies when they came out, and I have to say, I love the way this turned out. I liked the original, but the small white border around each stamped piece just seems so… perfect. I love it. All the coloring is from Prismacolor pencils, by the way. I love those things. The stamps I used were Quinn’s ABCs and the matching dies as well as Blissful Botanicals and the coordinating dies. I’m in love.
Here’s the card that I made before the dies. You can read more about it on this post. It’s lovely as a CAS card, but I’m having so much fun with the dies!
Here’s what I’ll be giving away today for day two of our celebration. A big thanks to Lawn Fawn for sponsoring this giveaway (they provided some of the items and I paid for others). Love you, LF! Each day, you’ll find links to each one of the products below the giveaway picture so you can see what each item is individually.
How it works: All you have to do each day to enter is answer the question of the day. Of course, you could be fabulous and spread the word to your facebook friends, twitter followers, etc. by sending them to my blog as well. That would be really cool of you! You can leave a comment (just one comment, please – only the first one will count) until the end of March 31st, 2013. I’ll be drawing, notifying and posting the winners sometime on Tuesday, April 2nd. All winners will be randomly drawn using a number generator. International entries are welcome, but I do ask, if you’re under 18, that you have the permission of your parent/guardian(s) since you will have to give me your address so I can send you the goodies!
Here’s the question of the day:
Have you ever taken an online crafting class before? What subjects do you want to learn more about in an online class?
I already know what my next class is going to be, but after I’m done with school there will be a lot of fun things coming on this blog, so it’s always good to keep the ideas coming. What do you want to learn about? What do you really like about online classes? What features do you think the perfect online class has? Answer any or all of these questions and you’ll be entered to win today’s giveaway
See you tomorrow for a video tutorial + another day of celebration and fun. :)
