Chevron Thank U card and a Giveaway

I am sharing a card in March/April 2013 Paper Crafts Magazine, which is also my winning card for the last World Card Making Day contest.  I did not have time to take a picture before I sent out the card.  This is the scanned image from the magazine.

The stamps I used for this card are Avery Elle To the point set and Framed Fonts set.  The card stock is Avery Elle speckled.


Now onto the giveaway:

I am giving away a $15 Avery Elle gift card.  Just leave me a comment and tell me your favorite apps for paper crafting (sketch, design, or take note, etc)  by midnight May 5th!  I will post the winner on Monday May 6th.  There is going to be an Avery Elle release soon (check out Avery Elle's design blog for sneak peak).  You know you want those trendy fun goodies :)

Thanks for stopping by,

I don't use many apps yet, but I have to say that I have been loving feedly (had to find something since reader is going away). It has a great interface on mobile and is much more user friendly than google reader or bloglovin.

Cute card, I love it! The only apps I use for papercrafting are Pinterest for inspiration.

Congrats!! Pretty Card!
I don't have many Apps on my phone...just Feedly, PC magazine!o I'd love to look for some Sketch apps.

Fabulous card!! Love it!

Most of the apps I use are photo based, but great for Project Life. I love Pic Tap Go for editing photos, Over for layering text to photos, and Collect for organizing your photos on a calendar.

Its a cute card. I don't have any scrap apps at the moment. Would love to find out from your comments.

Kara said...

Shelly said...

Congrats on winning and being published! It's a lovely card.

I use Apps but not any specifically for crafting. I read blogs via Feedly and snap photos of sketches to store on my phone. It's easy to refer to them when working on challenges...no need to power up the laptop!

love love this card, Chunyuan! amazing stamping with the arrows! does pinning in Pinterst count as an answer? i go to my pin boards to look for color combos and design inspirations! thanks for the chance to win! =)

Your card is magic Chunyuan! Apps? What are Apps? lol, I'm such an X gen it's not funny.

Jess said...

Your card is stunning!
I don't use any apps yet, but I do open sketches on my phone in the browser occasionally, so I have them with me while I craft away :)

Thanks for the chance to win. I don't have a favorite app, unless you count just my internet connection which allows me to see tons and tons of wonderful projects and blogs!

Michele L. said...

Great card! I just played with my first Avery Elle stamp today! (Bonjour stamp)
My favorite and only app is a Coptic marker app. It keeps track of what colors you already have!

Taheerah (*LittleMissT*) said...

I haven't the words for how much I love this card! It is perfect and I loved it from the minute I saw it in print!! As for apps I can't say I really use any for crafting - one of the most useful ones for me would be an app to organise my blog posts! Oh, hang on! I did start using Evernote to keep track of which stamp sets I have but I never had time to complete my inventory, let alone keep it up-to-date, lol!

richardbreaks said...

Wow, this is just too gorgeous! I am not really aware of craft apps, but my Pinterest app sure gets a lot of use for inspiration!

Wida said...

I love the overlapping on the card, the main app I use is Pinterest. That's it!

Kristie Goulet said...

Congrats! I am not into apps but use Pinterest all the time. :)

Purrfect Paper Creations said...

Love your card! I have the pinterest app on my phone, and I have a lot of the photo collage ones as well. Even Stampin Up has a fun one (Simply sent)!

THis is fantastic, congratulations!!! I just love Avery Elle! I don't use any apps other than feedly, sorry!
Thanks so much!

Crafty Math Chick said...

You are so talented. You mean there are crafty apps out there? I don't even own a phone like that, so I am not familiar with apps, so I don't know if I can even qualify for your giveaway - can list a tons of websites though... ;)

Jean Bullock said...

Love your card! The apps that I use in my cardmaking are Photoshop Elements 4 (old one.) and Pages 08. Believe it or not, Apples Pages is a great workhorse for card making. I love it.

Cheryl Hutcherson said...

I don't use apps. It's a new concept for me, but I'm looking at your other comments and going to check some out!

Mary-Anne V said...

Congrats on your win! I do not use any apps (unless you count Picasa to do some photo editing) so no help here from my side. Thanks for the chance to win.

Sue McRae said...

Congrats on your win! I don't use any apps, but like others use Pinterest a lot.

Gilu J said...

Congrats! I don't really use any apps yet. Thanks for the chance to win.

Congrats on your card - so Chunyuan! The queen of chevron CAS. As for apps - clueless (my cell is vintage ;) But check out Amber at Damask Love - she's had some recommendations.

Congratulations on the win! I quite like feedly as my new blog reader ... just getting into apps for crafting so not many to recommend!

I didn't notice your app request until I saw the winners post, but wanted to share because I do have a few FAVEs. I love Chronicle for organizing challenges. I use PhotoMgrPro for saving, sorting and organizing inspiration cards or cards that I want to CASE. Paper53 is great for creating sketches. Palu is a calendar app that I like for organizing when I have to post cards. I do have a tab on my blog with pix and details on each of these. Along with a Feedly tutorial.
