Merci Card and a K Andrew Designs Stamp Set WINNER!

Hi everyone and happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a great week :) Wow, I don't know what is up with the weather, but I love it -- 60's in February!! I have a card to enter into a few challenges today, and I also need to announce the winner of the K Andrew Designs mini stamp set from the Cards For Kids Valentine's Day Blog Hop. Also, be sure to stop back tomorrow when I announce the winner of the Space Party Cricut cartridge!! First today's card...


My Cuttlebug got quite a workout today! I love the look of white on white embossing. I used the Cuttlebug Plum Blossoms folder on the background. The hearts are all from George and Basic Shapes and I popped them up with foam tape for dimension. I used the Swirls embossing folder on the smaller hearts and the Script embossing folder on the red heart. I used Swiss dots on the strip of paper. The scallops are a Fiskars punch and the flowers are a EK Success punch. I added crystal gems to the centers of the flowers.


"Merci" is from the K Andrews Designs exclusive Merci stamp set, which is also the set I am giving away today!!


I used the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog Blog sketch for the card:


And I am entering the card in the following challenges:

And now, the winner of the K Andrew Designs Merci stamp set is..............


And number 34 is............................................................................................


Congratulations, Norma!! I'll email you for your addy!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and don't forgot tomorrow I will announce Random.org's choice of a winner for the Space Party Cricut cartridge!! Have a great day :)

Morning, Lis, This card is so striking with the red against that all white background. The embossing is amazing, and your added touch of gems is perfect. I love all the layering. Serious beauty....and I don't remember that cute mermaid watermark...so if she's new, she's adorable..and if she's not, well I'm getting old. ;)

Karen H said...

Congratulations, Norma! :o) Lisa my friend, this is exquisite! Embossing on white takes the technique to a whole new level, doesn't it? So pristine and poignant. I love the dimension, the sweet hearts, of course the loads of embossing, and your sweet trims.. I always love everything on your creations. :o) Dotting each tiny flower with a sparkle was the perfect touch. I love everything about this, Lisa. Certainly one of the most beautiful cards I've seen. :o) Pure excellence, my talented friend! (And thank you for the hugs! You make me smile.)

Hugs and blessings!

I love how you made the white on white look so elegant. TFS

Dayna Sabrina said...

This is by far my favorite of yours in the last few weeks. I LOVE the white on white with just a hint of color. It's a clean and streamlined look but the embossing adds just enough texture and interest. You are truly in a zone my friend.
