Paper Crafts Magazine: Stamp It! 3 Ways Blog Hop

PC20112

Welcome to the Stamp It! 3 Ways blog hop! This new special issue from Paper Crafts magazine is now available. Its stamping, all stamping!! What I love about this issue is how its set up. Three designers were given the same stamp set and they each created a card based on their own style. The creative ways each designer used the stamps is astounding! So much creativity! And so many ways to be inspired to use stamp sets in your stash.

charming

Today I am using one of the stamp sets I used in the issue, My Mind’s Eye Lost and Found Princess stamps.

charming CU

I stamped the pennants onto white cardstock with aqua ink. Then I added a piece of twine to the card base. Each of the pennants was cut out and foam mounted to the card. The butterfly was stamped with yellow ink, cut out and foam mounted. The sentiment fit perfectly between the embossed details.

The embossing on the background was created by Spellbinders Paper Arts latest; M-Bossabilities!! These dual-sided embossing folders are brilliant and create such a deep impression! This folder is called Elite. M-Bossabilities will be available for ordering at CHA-W. So look for them soon at your favorite store!!

Check out these talented stampers and see what they have created for today!

Fantastic card! This has been one of the best blog hops! I love the magazine already (couldn't wait to see if I would win a copy). Seeing all the different ways to use my stamps--incredible.

Again thanks for the inspiration!

Cristy Butzen said...

What a sweet card! I love all the different pennants mixed together, tfs!

adriana said...

My favorite stamp set right now is the in stitches stamp set. I have a sewing machine but its such a hassle to get out and use it for such a small thing this stamp set gives the faux look of stamping and works fine for me :) As for my favorite stamping technique I like to do a double layer stamp technique. I stamp onto my paper, copy it, enlarge it, print it, then put my original stamped image onto it using dimensional dots so it creates a very nice outlined image. :) Thanks for the opportunity to win this!

Such a sweet card, Kimberly. Love the versatility of this design. Pretty embossing too.

~Tammy~ said...

I love the aqua and yellow together and this is so fresh and clean against the embossed white background!

I love to paper piece, and I don't do it nearly enough. Usually because it take some tome, and lately I have to craft in short spurts when I can snag some time...TFS!

Rae | Family Photographer said...

Gorgeous card. Simple can be so effective! I can't pick a fave stamp set, that would be just crazy LOL If you ask me to narrow it done to my 10 or 20...that might be possible :)

I do have a fave technique right now. I am addicted to coloring my stamps with markers, pencils, inks or pens and then applying a clear glitter finish overtop. I love a little sparkle.

Glennis said...

Very pretty, thanks for sharing

I love your card!! My current favortite technique is the Tim Holtz embossing folder with the matching stamp set ( I have halloween, christmas and now valentines).

Love your card and the embossed background - beautiful!!!! Hmmm, it's so hard to choose favorites - I do love emboss resist...and just plain old stamping :)

newbie said...

I loved the Grunge stamp set the best. But that is only because I have so many circles. I really loved Hero Arts called Many Dots ideas by Sarah the best.

Barbara H said...

I just love My Minds Eye and the card you created. It is so simple, yet so, beautiful. Thanks for the opportunity to visit your blog.
