Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Good Monday Everyone! :)

So I'm sure you are wondering what I mean by

size doesn't matter!  LOL

Well, we all make A2 cards 4 1/4" X 5 1/2"

So For this Weeks Challenge -

I want you to create something other than 

an A2 card! 

It can be a little note card, a square card, a tall skinny card.

It can be a card box, a gift bag, a card box...

Anything your heart desires! 

But No A2  - 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" cards... :)

I can't wait to see what you all create with this challenge!  <3 

Remember there is a $20.00 gift card from

Gina K. Design for the winner!  <3 

Here is what I made!  :)

I used the New Stamp Tv Kit: Sending Love

to embellish this bag! :) 

*Pure Luxury Card Stock : Wild Lilac & Jelly Bean Green

*Premium Dye Ink: Black Onyx

*Patterned Paper Pack: Sending Love

*Printed Greeting from the kit

*Stamped Image and greeting on the tag is from the stamp set "Art From The Heart" in the "Sending Love" STV Kit

*Twisted Twine: Eggplant

 Embossing folders and bling 

OK... It is Your Turn... :) 

I am excited to see what you all do!  <3  :) 

 Now for the other stuff!  LOL

Be sure and have your creation uploaded to our gallery, with the tag, STV16MON16 no later than April 24th 8PM CST for a chance to win a $20.00 gift certificate to Gina K. Designs Store.

I love your gift bag, and this is a great idea for a challenge.

Hi Ladies, I am excited to see what you all come up with!  :)   <3 

Oh that's a beautiful project. Love that butterfly paper, and I just got the notice that mine is flying my way! Sounds like a fun challenge.

I did too!  Didn't expect it to ship for another week.  Bet you are as excited as I am!!!!!
