Mini Notecards + Giveaway



***If you’re here to apply or read more about my DESIGN TEAM CALL for the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge you can click here. Thank you!***

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hello bloggy friends!


I know it’s been awhile since I last blogged. I have been busy with work, preparing for the new challenge and crafting. Once the Design Team Call closes, I plan to share more of the cards I made in the last couple of weeks.


Yesterday I shared these mini 3x4 cards over on my Instagram. I seem to never have a notecard on hand when I am in need of one. So, I decided to make a whole bunch of small notecards just for that purpose. I have this 12x12 envelopes patterned paper in my paper stash for the LONGEST time and FINALLY use it! Yay! One less paper! :) The spark of inspiration behind these piles of cards was this card made by Mayline. I love the gold word die-cut and the hand drawn envelopes. So cute!


For my notecards, I used Mama Elephant Fair Feathers stamp set to create the ink splatters and heat embossed the sentiments in gold and black. The envelopes were all fussy cut and layered. Then I clipped some mini clothespins from SpiegelMom Scraps Etsy Shop to the mini envelopes and finished the cards by popping them up with foam dimensional adhesives. I think it took me a little over 2 hours to make all 30 of them. I really love how they turned out! Petite and cute! :) What do you think?


So, today is my big BIRTHDAY! I turned the big 3-0! I still feel like I’m 20 though. :) I am celebrating today by giving away some stamps! YES!!! The Mama Elephant “Charmed” and “Three Amigos” stamp sets are from me and the “Potted Pretties” and “Playful Pups” stamp sets are from my AWESOME crafty friends. The giveaway also includes the stamp sets coordinating dies too! And the fun doesn’t end there! My crafty friends also gave me the same sets as above to do a giveaway for my Instagram followers! YES, more giveaway!!! Aren’t crafty friends the best?!! I am BEYOND blessed to have each one of them!!! So, if you’re on Instagram, make sure you follow me there and enter that giveaway too! This will give you 2 chances of winning these cute Mama Elephant stamps!

To be entered to win these Mama Elephant stamps on my blog, you must be a follower of my blog! Please DO NOT follow to unfollow after the giveaway is closed. And please follow only if you truly love my blog posts. Thank you! This giveaway will end on Friday, November 13th at 11:59 PM CST. A random commenter will be pick and the winner will be announced on Monday, November 16th. Good-luck everyone!

I’m off to celebrate with my family and friends! Have a great day!

Would you believe I have no Mama Elephant stamps - this is a new company to me - would love to try them! I especially love the sets with the critters - big animal lover here! So sorry I can't join you on Instagram - I don't have a Smartphone (just an old-fashioned flip phone) - otherwise I would definitely be there for you! I hope you had a fabulous birthday and got spoiled with presents!

  30. Happy Birthday, Ka! That's a milestone birthday that should be celebrated for DAYS!! Your notecards are so sweet and the design is superb!! Those prizes are very generous, but please don't include me in the draw. I already have too much "schtuff" waiting to be used, so I'd rather the chance go to someone with less. Enjoy your special day!! Hugs, Darnell

  48. Ka, I want to wish you a belated Happy Birthday too! I remember the day I turned 30 - it was a wonderful day - I feel age is only as OLD as you choose to feel - I realize some people have health issues but I mainly mean this - by "a state of mind" - hope it was a happy day and you did the happy dance, and ate cake and ice cream! Enjoy your weekend! Cyberhuggies - Gail
