new CHA video and...


a GIVEAWAY!

Christine and Mark from Scraptime
filmed a video in the Ranger booth at CHA, showing how to use my Stamp-it Stencil-it's...

SiSi's are fun, 
because the stamp & coordinating stencil 
are both included in the package...

I used the new hydrangea SiSi 
for the video...



 there are 2 ways to use the SiSi's...
you can keep the image completely flat,
like I did in the video...
this is great if you're mailing a card...
or if you need to create a quick card...
a really quick card!

OR...
plan B...

you can stamp it & layer it like I did on this tag...
(this is also a good example of 
the oval from the new spotlight frames & masks set)...


to create this tag,
just stamp the hydrangea twice, 
cut out one full image & just the flowers from the second...
and layer the pieces...

this flower is stamped on clearly for art that has been covered with newsprint...
glue n seal is the BEST adhesive for this...

I'm LOVING newsprint over CFA...




here's the GIVEAWAY part...

I'll send this hydrangea SiSi to the lucky winner chosen by Christine from comments left on 
just leave your comment on the post by 10PM EST on Sunday February 1st...


you can find 


and...

also filmed by Scraptime...

check it out to learn about my new archival ink colors, the coordinating embossing powders and how to use the
to DOUBLE 
your embossing powder options...

HUGE THANKS to 
Christine & Mark 
for sharing the awesome videos...

and CONGRATS on your 8th anniversary!


I hope you'll grab some popcorn...
and check out the videos...
then be inspired to...

make art!
wendy
ps...I heard yesterday from several store owners that they had received new stamps...
some got notified 
that their CHA stamp order had shipped...
be watching...
yippee!
