New Release and a giveaway!!

Hi Everyone,

I'm back from my big European Adventure and ready to get back in the crafting groove.  What better way to start than to share a new release from Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.   I am so excited to share these great dies, stamps, and stencils with you.  They will be available soon on the ECD Website.  You can see all the new release in the COMING SOON section by clicking here.

Today I'm sharing the new Flower Pot Pop Stand die set which I have used for a Steampunk Birthday card.  The set comes with flowers and a cute butterfly to fill the flower pot but I have used some gears and a clock all designed by Karen as well.  The flower pot is easy to assemble and it is a Pop Stand die so the pot stands up in the center of the card - yet folds flat for mailing. To see a "how to" video from Karen just click here.
 Hope you enjoy.

I have used some of the new collection on the front of the card as well.  The Labels and Circles die comes in handy for adding a greeting to any card.  I have been wanting a crown to use on my steampunk cards and now I'm happy to say that Karen has added just what I wanted in the Anita Frames Pop Up. 
To celebrate the new release - I am giving away this great prize package provided by It's Cheaper Than Therapy, www.itscheaperthantherapy.com, a wonderful online store providing great selection and prices on Elizabeth Craft Design products.  The winner will get this fabulous Stage it Stencil and a set of stamps designed by Karen and two great dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

If you would like a chance to win this great prize package all you have to do is either leave a comment here on my blog or on my Facebook Page telling me what your favorite crafting style is.
It can be girly, cute, pretty, grungy, steampunk or anything else you can think of.  I will hold a random drawing on August 12 and the winner will be announced here and on my Facebook Page.
Good Luck -

I think this card is a good one to enter over at SanDee & amelia's Steampunk Challenge blog.  You can join the fun by clicking here.

Also looks like my card fits the new challenge at Simon Says Stamp with -

It is so sweet of you and Maria to offer a giveaway.
