{Paper Smooches} November Sneak Peek, Announcement + Giveaway!


Kim is sharing this card on the Paper Smooches Blog today. {There's a giveaway there, too!} My card features four stamps from Freezy Fellas which will be available on November 1st, in just two days time. Are you excited? These snowmen are absolutely adorable and when I saw this sentiment, it appeared as if the snowmen were showing me the love so I just went with it. LOL


The entire card is covered and paper pieced with patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Two's Rosy paper pad. I cut out my own banner, stamped the sentiment and stapled it to the card base to complete the scene.

Exciting Announcement & Giveaway!

I have a super exciting announcement to make! If you're coming from Paper Crafts Connection HERE, then you already know. I'm thrilled to announce that I am one of the four World Card Making Day 2012 Contest winners in the Hello/Thinking of You category. Eeek!! This is the first time I've won one of the big prizes from Paper Crafts magazine so I made this card to express just how wonderful I feel. Thank you to Paper Crafts and everyone who reads the magazine and my blog!

You have until Friday, November 2nd at 11:59 p.m. EST to leave a comment. I will use Random.org to draw and announce the winner of one Paper Smooches stamp set here on Saturday, November 3rd. Thank you so much for stopping by!! :D

It's the jolly ol' elf himself (Santa) who is missing from your card. (Tho you didn't include the gnome either...are gnomes real people?)

-- Connie C.

Meghan said...

Isha said...

Huuuuge Congrats Emily!!! Celebrating your win here. I found about 7 characters missing but the most important this time of year is Santa....lol.

Karen B. said...

So very happy for your Emily, and so well deserved! I don't see the santa, witch, frankenstein or the dracula on there, or Jerome either but are they really people? Anyway, I was scrolling through PS store and found a lot of sets that I need! Thanks for the nudge.

JJ Bolton said...

Congrats Emily! Very well deserved!

And I'm going to guess Santa too:)

Pryn said...

FABULOUS cards, Emily! Congrats on your very well deserved win! YOU ROCK!!!

Ok...so I had a guess, BUT then I read your hint of 'a very important person'. Now, I am going to have to say SANTA!!!

Indy said...

ConGrats! How exciting! Love those snowmen!

Karen said...

Congratulations on your win. It is not at all surprising to me. You are very talented. Haven't been on the internet much lately, work is very busy. Hope you are having a good week.

melania deasy said...

CONGRATS!!!!! I'm so happy for you :)

Always enjoy your designs even if you leave Santa out of the design sweetie

Kelly B. said...

Awesome! Where is Santa?

cassie said...

Congratulations - that's fantastic!

I guess I'll go with Santa as well :)

Lindsey said...

So I can't decide which card I like better -- the classic CAS Emily long card with amazing colouring, or the paper-pieced snow family extravaganza! And yes, I think seasonal Santa must be the missing person, too.

Lindsey said...

And oops, I forgot to say CONGRATS!

Sus said...

Congrats!!! Love your paper pieced snowmen card and all the characters used on the thank you card. I had no idea who was missing until I saw the comment just before mine... :)

Cristina said...

Wooooooooo! Congratulations, Emily!!

Ruth G said...

Congrats on your card publication! You always do such a great job, I'm glad to see you being recognized!
Love the card! I'm sure that Santa is super busy this time of year and will show up somewhere down the line with a tall cool drink in his hand celebrating that the holidays are over.
TFS!

Glenda J said...

A big congrats - well deserved! Love the adorable card!

Jennifer said...

Super cute snowman card! And congrats on being a winner-your card is adorable. I believe Santa is missing from the line up...

Marie / Legojenta said...

so happy for you Emily! Bravo!!
Love your art!

Moosisk said...

At first I thought it was Jerome, but I guess he isn't really "human". So I guess it's Santa even though he really is fictional(unless you count the original St. Nicholas). Congrats on being chosen a winner! I am so happy for you. :D

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

Congrats, Em!! I'm excited for your win!!

FABULOUS cards! I wish I had an ounce of your creativity and talent!! LOVE everything you make;)

ps...Santa is missing!!!!

canadian_liner said...

Hi Emily, we were having trouble with the "Interwebz" at our house last night, and in my impatience I managed to leave at least six copies of the same comment! I tried to delete all but one, but there was still delay between key-pressing and computer-action, and I guess they all disappeared. Anyway! Wanted to congratulate you on your Paper Crafts recognition. Well deserved! I love your ability to assemble stamps for fun and funny scenes. Love the PS character party card! Santa is missing, but as Miriam P mentioned, so are some other not-so-humanoid peeps...

Caroline said...

Congratulations! Such a cute card. I think that Santa is missing.

walchowDesign said...

Woohoo! Congrats, Emily! Both cards are fabulous and how you put all the characters on the last card!

Karen said...

Hooray for you! Love Paper Smooches and I love your cards-just so darling!!!

Sheri said...

Congratulations Emily! Good for you! It looks like Santa was too busy getting ready for Christmas to make it to your party.

Poorvi said...

Congrats Emily on getting your card published! Both cards are beautiful! But oh, Santa is missing :'(

Kathy Mc said...

Emily, how very exciting on being a WCMD winner for PaperCrafts. Love the snowman dudes in your first card and think Santa is missing from your second one. Eager to see your winning card when published. Congrats!

Wendy ten Hove said...

Hi Emily!
Yay!! I saw you were one of the winners! That is so well deserved!!! I love your character group card!! Love all that are there, but I do think Santa Clause could be a bit sad now, hi hi. But he'll forgive you, 'cause the card is so cool! And 'cause you're a winner! :-D
Hugs, Wendy

Cathy Fongjoyo said...
