Hello and welcome!

Happy February! Can you believe January 2016 has come and gone already!? I'm stunned to tell you the truth!

I got the Heidi Swapp Minc machine for Christmas and have only used it a few times but oh the fun! I used teal foil on a large sheet of toner paper and die cut birthday greetings, confetti and bows for balloons with it and added them to a kraft card base! (I'll find the paper pack I got the patterned paper from and add that info later... I rarely use patterned paper!). I thought with these colors these cards had a masculine feel to them with the striking black against the teal colors. Wink of Stella glimmer in a few places adds to the festive feel!

Onto the giveaway... as I said in January, I've been purging some of my card-making supplies and you will benefit from it! I've also won a few blog hops and giveaways recently and so the items that don't suit my style of card making will be given away as I host monthly giveaways at the beginning of each month! Some of these are brand new items and some have been used but are still in very good condition! I have stamps, dies, patterned paper, embossing folders and embellishments in my giveaways and I have enough for eight moths of giveaways so far! So every month around the first I will post the giveaway on my blog and it will run for two weeks. Here is the second giveaway:

February's giveaway includes: Gina K Designs "Sent With Love" stamp set, Colorbox Queue "Baby's Breath" nested inkpads, Crate Paper rhinestone and resin flowers, We R Memory Keepers Lifestyle nesting dies: Eyelet Squares

I thought since February is the LOVE month I should giveaway a love stamp set with some soft ink colors and lovely embellishments! This giveaway will run through February 14th and I will pick a winner on February 15th!

I would love it if you followed me on all my social media but it isn't required for the monthly giveaways. I make cards for the love of creating and love to follow, like and comment on the blogs and other social media accounts of those who love to do the same. That is all. I also share Alaska scenery, wildlife and just living here photos... like these:

  4. Hi Kris ~ LOVE your cards!! I think Kraft cardstock makes such a wonderful backdrop for masculine/contemporary cards, especially when paired with black. Like you, I got a MINC for Christmas, but I haven't had the chance to play with it're inspiring me to get moving. Love the fun elements you added to these fun cards with your MINC. Very nicely done.
