Knotty Birthday ~ Envelope Punch Board

If you are looking for my Sew Saturday post be sure to come back tomorrow.  ;)  I am running a day behind on my blog as I have been celebrating StampNation's birthday all week long.   In fact today's post was supposed to go up yesterday, but I ran into some technical difficulties.

My card for the last Birthday Bash challenge has to be one of my all time favorite masculine cards.   I wish I could show you the card, but it is one I made for the design team and is now a StampNation exclusive.  It is a CASE of Susan Powell.

Since I can't show you my Design Team card unless you are a member of StampNation, I decided to make a stepped down version of the card using some of my favorite elements from both Susan's and my own card.

***Note: If you are reading this outside of my blog you may need to go to this post to see the video above.  Click on the post title "Knotty Birthday" to go there now.

Catherine Pooler Cupcake Card.
As you saw in the video today's giveaway, on Catherine Pooler's YouTube channel, is sponsored by Avery Elle.  They are giving away the cutest little cupcake stamp and matching die.  Clicky to see it.  As I said in the video, I am not eligible to win, but I would LOVE for one of my followers to win it!  All you have to do is go to CLICKY and COMMENT on Catherine's YouTube video.  Good luck!

In addition to all this fun, I found a great new challenge that I am VERY excited about.  Why?  Because I need so many masculine cards and this challenge is just for masculine cards.  It's a perfect fit.   :)

Stepped down or not, it's a great look! Stepped down is probably best for me anyway. =)
