Is it real? Or is it Memorex? And a Giveaway!!

Looking for the giveaway?? Read on - it's at the bottom of this post.

Remember those Memorex commercials?  They would compare the VHS taped version to the live version and ask "is it real or is it Memorex?"  Maybe I'm dating myself!!! hehehe!

Today I've got 2 versions of the same card design to share with you. Both are hybrid.  But one is a "digital printable" and the other is a "print, cut, and assemble."

Can you tell which is which?  The "digital printable" was designed in Photoshop and printed out.  The "print, cut, and assemble" was also designed in Photoshop, but the elements were printed separately, cut with my electronic die cutter, and glued together to create the final card.

I used a great template by Krisi's Kreations to make these cards.  I also used an alpha from the digital kit My History by WM Squared Designs, both are available at Scrap Orchard.

The Giveaway!!

  1. They're both great cards. It is hard to tell which is which.
    One Act of Kindness I have done is to send a birthday card to a neighbor of my aunt who is turning 80. My aunt wanted to shower her with cards for her special day.

  2. These are fabulous!!!! Perhaps this will encourage more people to not be intimidated with digital images. This looks FANTASTIC. :)

    Thank you for playing along with us at Make It Monday!
    Remember, for a chance to win the prize from our sponsor, leave a comment for another entry and mention that you saw them on Make It Monday.

  3. I thought I was a follower, but I was a subscriber. Now I"m both. :)

  4. How wonderful to see these two cards together. I am guessing the card on the right is the print, cut and asseble card. Love how you have added the hint of red. Thanks for joining in at Unstampabelles.

  5. How interesting! Great cards and they are so fascinating - I have no idea which is which. Thanks for joining us at Unstampabelles.

  6. These are gorgeous love creations.

  7. My act of kindness today was to pass along my 5% off shopping spree coupon, at Target, to a young family with 2 full carts.

  8. and yup, I also Like Scrappycath Creations.

  9. I'm also a follower of your blog..a happy follower

  10. They are both perfect! It is hard to tell which is which but I think the first is the cut image based on the shadows on the I, heart, and U. It is so touching to read of your ARKs! I am now following to see more of your work! I try to do something each day to brighten someone elses day. This week we have volunteered to help another family out during the winter months! I don't want to go into any more detail due to their privacy but it feels good to help others in need! I am thankful for what we have each day and I would hope that someone would help us out if we found ourselves in the same situation! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at My Craft Spot this week!

  11. Cute card! I will have to try that! I think I have Martha Stewart stamps that look like that font!

    Love your idea and "twist" on RAKS (random acts of Kindness) by calling them ARKS! LOL too cute!

    I usually don't like talking about my ARKS don't wanna kill the blessings or anything...but I would LOVE to own some of your handmade art! So here goes... Well recently I had a friend approach me about someone I didn't know in the community struggling to pay their rent and were about to get evicted by the fire Marshall in like a week. So myself and some other friends rallied together and donated the money they needed to pay the rent and stay in their home! It felt good to be able to help someone that was truly in need!

  12. Oh I just discovered your blog and now a new follower!

  13. I also liked your FB page! LOVE your work! So much talent!

    I hope you meant we were to leave 3 separate comments! If not, I apologize! :oS

  14. Great cards!! Thanks for joining the challenge over at Unstampabelles! And such a tough guess on which one is digital and which one is cut and paste!! I can't figure it out! LOL!

    As for a RAK that I have done recently....last week I bought an extra pack of fabric covered buttons the nice checkout lady at JoAnns was looking at and gave them to her. She didn't know what to think...nobody had ever done something so random and nice like that to a stranger at checkout! So that made me happy seeing her smile! :)

  15. Hi! Love the cards! I am a follower of your blog.

  16. I'm also really glad I got to find you from the Unstampabelles challenge because I really like your work! I became a new follower! :)

    ....sorry no facebook for me.

  17. I have liked you on Facebook!

  18. One act of kindness I did this past month is to empty my wallet and give all the money in it to a patient (I'm a nurse) I was caring for. She was leaving our hospital to go to another one for chemo. I knew she was broke and would need a little cash. I think it was only about $30, but it was enough to meet her needs that day.


  20. Wow I love these cards. What an original and fab design. Saw it on MIM and had to come in for a closer look. Glad I did. TFS. Bettina xx

  21. Fabulous! Such a great idea. Thanks for sharing with The Shabby Tearoom!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I do read them all and appreciate each and every one!
