Fundraiser and Blog Candy!


Yesterday I held a fundraiser card class along with my friend Sandy to raise money for her friend who desperately needs a double lung transplant.  My last post alerted you to the fact that I'd be back this weekend for photos of the cards we made....and a free kit to one lucky person!  So- here are the photos.

The first card uses Tulip and White Cardstock, Splendor level 2 paper, With Love stamp set, Holiday buttons (Cranberry), Colonial White Designer brad, silver brads and Moonstruck, Creme Brulee, Topiary and Tulip ink pads ***note- the card kits include Antique Copper brads- not silver****

The second card uses Twilight, White Daisy and Juniper inks, A Tweet stamp set , Perfect Day Level 2 ( I think that's the pack the patterned paper is from?), Twilight and Chocolate inks.

The "Treasure Life" is stamped on a longer piece of white cardstock.  On either side of the words- the paper is folded back and then forward again- there's about 1/4 inch folded under neath the words.  The remaining length on either side of the words had a little triangle piece cut out to create a little banner.  The chocolate sponging was done AFTER all the folds and cutting took place ( The kit includes this piece PRE-FOLDED AND CUT to make your life easy :)

All the sponging you see is also done for you!  The kits were prepared (and are still being prepared ;) such that ANYONE can put them together- whether you are a papercrafter or not!

The third card is very simple and cute.  Supplies:  Sweet Leaf and white cardstock, Cherry-O level 2 paper and A Posey stamp set.  Inks:  Chocolate, Sweet Leaf and Tulip.  Also included- foam dots.  You will need to cut your flower out but it is pre-stamped.  The circle center is even pre punched for you!

The final card is probobly my favorite one of the four.  It uses Creme Brulee, Brown Bag and white cardstock, Garden Green Ribbon from a previous Creative Basics set no longer available, Grown With Love and Thank You stamp sets, Olive, Sorbet and Brown Bag inks (with some 2nd generation stamping), and Liquid Applique dotted in the center of each blossom.

So what do you think?  Would you like to win a card kit of your very own to create these 4 cards?

Leave a comment on this post before midnight EST on Tuesday June 1st and I'll randomly pick one person to win a card kit of your own PLUS I'll still donate $6 for this card kit to the cause!

I have more kits available as well so for $10 plus $3 shipping- you can purchase this card kit!  $6 from the sale of each kit is donated so the kit itself is a GREAT value at only $4!!  I do take paypal and propay payments so send me a note at tracikeagen  @  msn dot com  (scrunch it together and make the dot a .  )

*** NOTE about the kits-  You only need to supply adhesive to assemble the cards- no inks or stamps necessary- EVERYTHING is completed except card assembly!
