Easy Handmade Birthday Card with the Foundations Box Video Tutorial

cas-foundations-card How many different ways can you think to stamp a card JUST LIKE THIS one only with the contents of this collection?

You know, it sounds to me like that needs to be a challenge….hmmmmm…..

fbshare_comingsoon2 What’s great about the Foundations Box?  It’s the “Everything-every-stamper-needs-box” with:

  • FIVE colors every stamper needs
  • THREE all around awesome stamp sets with images, sentiments, borders and accents
  • ONE clear Block
  • ONE pack of prescored notecards


The retail value of these products is over $80.  The Foundations Box will premier for $67.

If you order your box on Wednesday morning, there is a really good chance that it will be in your hot little hands by the weekend and you’ll be CASEing and creating awesomeness in no time!

foundations-gdt There is some incredible talent joining us for this hop.  The cards here on my blog are using ONLY the products from the Foundations Box…nothing else.

Our designers are showing you how to make cards using just the contents of this box, but then a few of them go a step beyond and show you a few projects that use scissors, a paper cutter, maybe a bit of twine or some sequins.  Just WAIT until you see what they’ve done!

The more comments you leave, the better your odds of winning!

One winner will be randomly chosen from all the comments on the hop tomorrow morning and announced at 9 am eastern with the opening of ordering.  You have 24 hours – GO!!!!  and good luck!
