BLOG Candy and One of a Kind Birdie

This is a card I made for HeroArts' Monochromatic Challenge. I love monochromatic cards with a little bit of black or brown. The bird was colored with Copics. I'm also following two other challenges this week: Our Creative Corner (to use 3 embellishments) and Stamp Something (to use any winged thing).

Stamps: Live Simply and Happiness Messages (HeroArts)
Ink: Angel Pink and Tuxedo Black by Memento, Copic markers
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Black Onyx by GKD
Others: Gingham Ribbon and button by PTI

Now for some blog candy!!! My new stamp set from GinaK Designs will be released on the 30th of July. I will be out of town during the release day because I'll be on my way to CHA! I can't wait. It'll be my first and I'm just giddy with excitement. I have a list of people I look forward to meeting.

I have to tell you my new stamp set's one of my favorites so far. It's so versatile and I can't wait to share it with you. I also designed some matching patterned papers to go with it. I'm giving one copy of my stamp set away as candy and this is what you have to do. To qualify for my blog candy, leave a comment to answer this question...

If you could meet a stamping/scrapbooking diva, who would it be? I know on the top of my list is GinaK herself. Unfortunately, she won't be there at CHA, but I'm still hoping someday God will allow our paths to cross. So, how about you?

I will announce the winner to be picked using random.org on Thursday morning before I hit the road for CHA. Tell others about it. If your friends comment, make sure you ask them to mention your name and you will be entered twice.

I'm off now to the World of Coke museum to do some sight-seeing. My girls can't wait to taste all the other Coke flavors from all over the world. Have a good weekend!

  3. Believe it or not, I've never met the lady who got me started stamping. She sent me a homemade card and I was hooked! She taught me every step of the way through email. I dream of making the trip to meet her. She lives about 1000 miles from me. But I WILL get there.

    I love your cute card. Love how the bird seems to be setting on the button!

  17. Nina,
    You posed a tough question. There are so many Diva's that I love. Mish Wooderson, Gina K, Ellen Hutson, Debbie Olsen to name a few. If I would have to pick just one though, I think it would be the fabulous Sharon Harnist. She is so creative and her style is very much my style!
