{True Stamp 2014} Promo Video with Special Guest, Discount + Giveaway!


About the Event: True Stamp is an innovative one-day event bringing together top-notch stamping sponsors and instructors in a LIVE, online environment. Attendees will get the best in paper crafting instruction, right to their computers. With sponsors such as Technique Tuesday, Lawn Fawn, Simon Says Stamp, Raisin Boat, Paper Smooches, and Mama Elephant, you're promised a full day of inspiration, creativity and fun! Over 250 stampers have already registered for this incredible, fun, inspiring event. Oh, and it's all recorded, so if you want to watch you can revisit your favorite classes again and again - and it's all included in the one low registration fee.

Date: True Stamp is scheduled for Saturday, April 5th. Mark off the whole day to spend stamping away!

Cost: ALL SIX classes and full replays of the event are included in the one low registration fee of $97. However, you can save $48 by entering code LOVE at checkout. This special discount is valid through March 17, 2014.


Since all three of my teams are represented in the True Stamp 2014 event, I thought it would be fun to create a card and video using products from each of these companies. The stamps are from Mama Elephant's True Friend stamp set, the dies are from Paper Smooches' Quotables and Flowers dies, and the coloured cardstock is from Simon Says Stamp. My son popped in while I was shooting the video so be sure to leave a comment for him, too. ;)


Giveaway: I'm offering one lucky person a spot in the True Stamp 2014 event. This means the winner would get to participate in all these classes for free! That's a $97 value!! Would you like to win this spot?

You have up to five chances to win. Here's how:
  1. Leave one comment here on this post.
  2. Follow my blog.
  3. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel.
  4. Leave a comment on this video and...
  5. Leave a bonus comment for the little guest. ;)


You have until 11:59 p.m. on March 17th to enter. I will choose my winner via Random.org and announce the winner on March 18th. Please be sure to check back here to see if you're a winner. If you've already purchased a ticket to True Stamp 2014, and you happen to win, you will be reimbursed. Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

Beautiful card, Emily! I love the color combo and the flowers are gorgeous! I love how you used the curved die, too!

I also thought it was so sweet that your little guy made an appearance! Funny that he instinctively knew that you needed a pearl on the large flower...so cute!

This is such a beautiful card, Em! The cardstock colours go together beautifully and really do have a perfect spring feel to them. When are YOU going to start offering classes? :)

Hey D! Hi from Lindsey. You were so right, the big flower definitely needed a big pearl -- or at least three small ones, instead.

stamping sue said...

what a great card. I never think to cut my card and put something in the middle like you did. I think putting vellum in the middle would be a good idea.
