Final Lizzie Anne Contest Card!!


So apparently I'm not that bright!! I saw the announcement about the Lizzie Anne Designs Card Contest, read the specifications, got totally excited because of how much I LOVE LAD stamps and went to town!!! Unfortunately when I read that the cards must 'feature Lizzie Anne stamps', I didn't take that to mean that ONLY LAD stamps could be used on your cards in order for them to qualify!! SO I used sentiments from other companies as I don't have a lot of LAD sentiment stamps! I guess the rule is ONLY LAD stamps......whoops!!

SO out of the several cards that I sent in, this is probably the only one that will count. My chances just got much slimmer. Poo. Anyway, it was fun to create the cards and all the cards sent in are being donated to Cards for Cancer, so I'm sure each card will brighten someone's day, no matter what stamps are on it!

This card I am especially proud of......well, I like it a lot anyway!! I think it is my favourite out of all the ones I made for the contest! I started with my Chocolate Chip base and Cool Caribbean, which just happened to match that yummy ribbon that I got in a big box o' ribbon from Costco about a year ago!! I may have been hoarding it.....hehe. I made the panel for the top half using shimmery white paper and stamping different sized snowflakes from the Christmas in the City stamp set in Cool Caribbean. I sponged around the edges with a cosmetic sponge and matted it on Cool Caribbean cardstock. Then I made the little 3-D tags to go across it and this was the first time I had used the little hot chocolate mugs and they are so fun!!! Of course I sponged those edges too and added some plaid matching ribbon with silver brads to each tag and then pop dotted them. For the bottom half I tied the thick satiny ribbon across the middle and stamped the phrase on the large oval punch by inking up the first half of the stamp and then the second half, so that I could get it all on the oval. I sponged around the oval too, paper pierced across to the oval and added two sugarcoated snowflakes that I punched out using my Martha Stewart Snowflake punch! Love this card....it makes me think of a crisp snowy day!!

Aaaawwwh, sorry to hear about the sentiments on your cards...that is a bummer! But I am sure your one or two cards that use all LAD stamps are super awesome and can win on their own anyway...

This one is great. I am loving that blue and brown combo!

Lovely card - those snowflakes have real dimension to them and the colour combination is great - you might not manage to keep the rules but you make some great cards.

All your cards just simply amaze me...you just make me want to get out all my stamps and stamp all over the place haha! I really need some more tutorials on how to use my new prisma pencils because you make your cards look so pretty with them. (if thats what you are using?) thanks for your wonderful inspiration!

Aw, that's a bummer about your other cards not qualifying. I LOVE this one. I don't know what I'll do when my cool caribbean runs out.

I read that as well but I am hoping that submissions just need to feature LAD stamps and maybe if a card is beautiful enough and uses just a teeny tiny sentiment from someone else, they will have pity and figure we don't own any LAD sentiments and send us some?!?! I sent mine in early this week: http://www.stampwithcrystal.blogspot.com/
But, notice it uses the sentiment "Wishes" from an SU set. Who knows, maybe they will pity both of us?!?!
