I Count Myself Lucky Card & Winner


This week is CHA week, which means tons of new products from all of our favourite manufacturers will be released throughout the week at the tradeshow in Las Vegas!!
I haven't been to a show in a few years, but they are always a fun (and exhausting!!) time, to see new product amd more importantly, to hang out with and see friends that you usually only see once or twice a year.

So to all my friends going - have a great time and make sure to have at least ten group hugs for me!!! ;)

Now on to today's card - I finally got a chance to play with some of the new Kelly Purkey dies and stamps from Simon Says Stamp and I'm pretty much in love with the iPhone die and stamp set! ;)
There are so many possibilities with this fun little phone die and I have a feeling I'll be using it a lot!!

I also used a bunch of stamps from the new Card-Exchanging Friends stamp set that comes in the August 2013 Card Kit. This is definitely a new favourite stamp set of mine because it has such a great variety of sentiments.

I Count Myself Lucky


A little about the card -

- To make the phone look more realistic, I diecut it out of glossy paper to give it a cool shine
- I combined various stamps from the Card-Exchanging stamp set to create the sentiment on the phone
- I repeatedly stamped #instagood and #thishappened (from the Insta stamp set) all over the pool card base with pool shadow ink to give it a little more detail.
- I added glitter to the ampersand for a fun little detail since the card in one dimensional.


The winner of the goody bag from the Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit Blog Hop is Dana Warren!!
