Well...lets start out with our giveaway winner for the Sweet Soiree Memories and More Card Pack with mini class pack
**Monica Talbot**
You are today's winner!!!

It's pretty fun to make cards with just the preprinted items in the Card Packs. 
Add a little ribbon and bling...and you are good to go. 

Today I have another great technique for you. I love techniques that look harder than they are. This is one of those :) 

You can see how easy it is here. The hardest part is figuring out the measurements if you are doing a completely different layout. If you choose my layout as above...here are the measurements..
The card base color (in this case Dapper Denim)
Card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2"
then 4 3/4 x 3 1/2"
then 4 x 2 3/4"
The Whisper White (stamped image layers)
5 1/4 x 4"
4 1/2 x 3 1/2"
3 3/4 x 2 1/2"
Watch my video below to see how you can do this too. It's easier than you think ;)


Stay tuned tomorrow will be another Stamping 101 video

Today's giveaway is.....
The Eclectic Expressions Stamp Set. Some very creative things can be done with this set with all those shapes :) 

To enter to win....I wanna hear what you struggle with in regards to stamping. Is there something that you just need more help with? 
Comment below. 

I'm asking because I want to help you all in the best ways...sometimes I need some help on what you all struggle with. 

Thanks for helping me out. 

Happy Crafting
~Nicole

Congratulations Monica! :) You already posted a youtube video on it, I struggle with cutting layers. My 2nd main struggle is getting a good clean stamping image -I know they say it has to do with different ink and different paper and I really don't have the patience :/

I would say I struggle with coloring images especially with markers.....I have purchased some of the new blends but have not used yet! Excited about my prize....I don't have that card pack......so pretty...thanks Nicole!

Congrats Monica, Like you I have trouble coloring with markers. I'm hoping the blends are easier to work with. Everything comes out much darker than I want with the markers. Thanks Nicole for the video about layering, very helpful.

My biggest struggle is actually getting started. But I’m hoping with all the new stamps I guess but that it will inspire me to get started and do a bunch of cards. I love watching videos to get inspired by your ideas.
