July Giveaway Winner...and Motorcycle Masculine Cards!

Hello and welcome!

I have the July giveaway winner to announce and some masculine cards to share with you!

First off, the winner of the July giveaway is none other than...


who liked my Instagram post about the giveaway! Yes, it's that easy to enter my monthly giveaways! Be sure to stick around for the August giveaway that starts August 1st!!

My cards have definite masculine tendencies to them from a FABULOUS kit by Close to My Heart called "URBAN" that I won from a blog hop! I don't use patterned paper very often but I adore the paper in this kit! The stamp set is AWESOME to say the  least! So grungy and rad for both boys and men! It has some extra fun pieces like the buttons (second card from top) and twine (not shown on any card) besides the paper pack and it's hard to choose which side of the paper to use since both sides are the bomb! The "Stoked", arrows in circles, >>>>>>, "one way", "or another" arrows, criss-cross border, "boys will be boys" and "EPIC" are all stamps in this kit! The motorcycle stamp is not from the kit but one I purchased in my local stamp shop and it's by Deep Red called "Hardtail Motorcycle". It went perfectly with this whole kit and I will be using it with this paper in the future!

Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless!

July Giveaway Starts Today... Best Wishes Bird!

Hello and welcome!
Happy Independence Day... probably a day late as I am writing this the evening of July 4th!

This is hopefully a quick post about the July giveaway (see how to enter below) and a quick card that's for sale at the arts and crafts fair called Friday Fling in Palmer, Alaska!

My card is pretty simple in that it has some blue glitter washi tape on the side and a simple stamped image from the set by WPlus9 called "It's a New Day". I colored it with Zig Clean Color Brush Pens and it was a practice piece for using these and getting blending down. Not sure I accomplished the correct blending but I am practicing! I left the branch uncolored to give the bird center stage and you can't see by this photo but he's sparkly with Wink of Stella glitter pen. I added a sentiment from the set that is mislabeled and it was from a blog hop I won a lot of stamps in so I'll have to add the company name when I find out! If you recognize the set please leave me a comment below and tell me (and that will be an entry into the giveaway too!!). I, of course, used Gina K Designs base weight card stock as my base for this card!

July giveaway: Heidi Swapp stencil; Technique Tuesday: Learn Something by Ali Edwards stamp set; Gossamer Blue stamp set from January 2014 main kit; Quickutz/Lifestyle Crafts Dainty Doily 4" x 4" die; and multi-color sequins.

This giveaway will run through July 18th and I will pick a winner on July 19th!

To win all you have to do is:
1. Comment on this post below for one entry.
2. Comment and/or like giveaway photo on my Instagram account for one entry (Alaska.Kris)

4. BONUS ENTRY: For a bonus (4th) entry, repost on your blog, Instagram account or Facebook page about my giveaway and leave the link in the comments on this post only.

That is four entries total per person. You have until midnight Alaska time July 18th to do one or all four ways of entering for this giveaway. I will pick a winner and contact them on July 19th. Sorry USA entries only due to shipping costs.

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.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
