Iron Craft Season 2 Episode 4

Hey everyone!

Boy you are in for a treat today! I have a seriously talented crafter as my guest today and you are going to SQUEAL when you see her!


Laura Bassen! Thats who my guest is! Phew! You have NO idea how hard it was to keep that to myself so long! So we’ll skip the text and go right to the video, shall we? 🙂


Laura and I both used the Falling Hearts stencil from Simon Says Stamp and the Card Exchanging Friends stamp set also from SSS.



Here is what Laura and I made with the ingredients. My card to the left and Laura’s to the right!


Now this is one of those posts where I’d like to pretend my card doesn’t exist and we’ll just talk about Laura’s 🙂 Its just sooooo…. delicious! Love how she used the stencil in the center and distress inks, dies to make the focal point! For my card, the hardest part was to stand up and walk away! ‘d to keep telling myself that less is more and thats how Laura does it!


Today I am sponsoring the giveaway for a $10 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp!


To win, just leave a comment on this post with an answer to the question Laura asked in the video! Here is the question again for you!

Thanks for dropping by and hope you enjoyed the episode! Laura and I look forward to reading your delicious answers!

    Wonderful interview. I’m torn about my favorite dessert. I love cherry pie but I’m also a chocoholic. It’s not really dessert but I LOVE dark chocolate peanut M & M’s.


  2. karen q

    That was a really great interview. I loved Laura’s 3 poses. My favorite dessert is anything chocolate. If it doesn’t have chocolate in it, it isn’t dessert.


  3. Vicki Smith

    Laura Bassen is one of my favorite people and designers.
    Favorite recipe is my mother’s apple crumb pie – pretty simple but outrageously good!

    Chaitali, once again a video that invites cheering and applauding! Laura is so incredibly talented, and your interview is, again, simply outstanding! You’re a natural at making people comfortable and asking *the* perfect questions for your audience appeal. Top-notch! Favourite dessert: home-made carrot cake (extra on the carrots) with cream cheese icing and soft vanilla ice cream. I’m saving for a very, very special occasion to indulge, with zero guilt on calories (or size portion!). Until then: home-made chocolate chip cookies! Thanks for the happy-making post and video!


  5. Susanne V.

    That’s a tough question… A good chocolate mousse! Mmmm… Why did you do that? Giving me a craving!
    Those interviews are so interesting and fun! Thanks for doing them!

    Was so excited to see Laura was your next interview, she is one of my most favourite card makers ever!!! Fantastic interview and isn’t Laura so down to earth and funny! Very hard to choose favourite dessert. Would have to say a moist, fudgy, stick-to-your-fork chocolate cake. Makes me hungry just thinking about it!!!


  7. Lu C

    What a great interview! I laughed right along with the two of you!
    My favorite dessert is a double chocolate fudge cake with coffe mocha icing! YUM!

    Fun interview—I love Laura! She is always great fun, which, I am sure, makes her a great mother. Favorite dessert? Just about anything that is sweet… but if I have to choose one, I would say, cheesecake.


  12. karenladd

    How fun to see and hear some of the bloggers and designers that I so admire! You always seem to have a great time with the interviews as well. As for dessert, I have been going nuts over strawberry shortcake lately and want it all the time!

  27. Kathy Mc

    Love both cards and what a fun interview to listen to with you & Laura! Now to pick a favorite dessert. That’s a difficult question because I’m a sweet monger and love to bake. Guess my first choice would be Burnt Cream (or Cream Brulee) but I’m not really fussy when it comes to dessert.


  28. Colleen Pepper

    WHat a fun Interview! I love Laura so much! My favorite dessert would have to be my homemade rocky road cheesecake. YUM!!


  29. KMCorby

    Great job, Chaitali. I love Iron Craft! Laura is always fun to listen to.

    Favorite dessert? I love all desserts, except for German chocolate cake. Hate that stuff! My husband and I’s favorite dessert to share after a romantic dinner is creme brulee.
