Letterpress 1 Card 4 Ways---1,000 YouTube Subscribers & A Letterpress Giveaway

Hi everyone!  I hope your week is treating you well.  I have spent the last couple of days catching up at home.  I begin working the night shift tonight….so I need all my ducks in a row before my schedule gets turned upside down!

As you may have seen recently, I hit 1,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel!  I am so excited.  So in honor of reaching 1,000 subscribers, I filmed a video and Lifestyle Crafts has generously sponsored a giveaway!  Keep reading to find out how you can enter to win!

For today’s project, I pulled out my Letterpress.  I love my Letterpress tool!  I wanted to show you how you can take the same card…and dress it four different ways.  The four versions are plain (just letter-pressed….completely fabulous on its own), girly, manly, and Carissa-ized (aka rhinestoned out)!  I like to do a bunch of Letterpress pieces all at once and have them on hand.  This is the perfect example of how you can pre-press your cards and then dress them later for the recipient.

If you are unfamiliar with how to use the Letterpress tool, you can see a how to video that I created a couple of months back by clicking HERE.  You can use the Letterpress tool in your Epic 6, Sizzix Big Kick, and Sizzix Vagabond.  (These are the machines I have personally tried it in).   The results are absolutely stunning!

Now it’s time for a giveaway!  Lifestyle Crafts has given me a Letterpress Combo Kit and a set of dies (your choice) to give away!  Simply leave a comment on this blog post and tell me which version of the card you like best (and a way for me to reach you if you win).  The four versions are plain (just letter-pressed….completely fabulous on its own), girly, manly, and Carissa-ized (aka rhinestoned out)!  I will choose a winner on September 20th, 2011, using Random.org.  One entry per person please.

Thank you to all of my subscribers and all of my blog followers!  You are all FABULOUS!

Have a wonderful day!

  25. Hi Carissa! I was just over on youtube and seen a comment you left on starofmay's. I thought "I remember that name". Clicked on it and found your channel again! Think I had you before I had some computer glitches. Glad I found you again..Boy I "talk" a lot..in voice or by typing! :) Some days!! The Letterpress looks like Fabulous Fun!! How nice of Lifestyle Crafts! Now, my favorite~~hmmm I think..the Carissa one..like all the bling (I am so tight with my bling-don't know why!)....or maybe the one with the ribbon, that is so cute too. No, I pick the bling!

  57. Carissa, It was hard to choose between the one with the bling (Carissa) and the one with the ribbon(girly). But I think I like the one with the ribbon (girly)just a tiny bit more.
