Good morning!! I am so excited about today's post! If you've been following along all week at Paper Crafts Connection (which is the blog for Paper Crafts Magazine) you know that they have been promoting their newest special issue, Stamp It! 3 Ways.
Today, Paper Crafts is hosting a fun Blog Hop featuring some of the designers. They asked us to create a new project using our stamp set from the issue! Even better, YOU have a chance to WIN a copy of this issue and also a prize package from Paper Crafts Magazine of every stamp set used in the issue!!!
I was given a wonderful set, All Aboard, from Technique Tuesday (if you have the issue it's on pages 82-83). The images in this set are so great for masculine cards as well as great vintage-type cards! I used the bicycle image to make a vintage-y card that could be used as a going away card or even a birthday card!
I cased Betsy Veldman's idea from the issue of stamping-off the "Journey" sentiment multiple times which gives the panel more dimension. I also added a bit of shading to the image using Copic markers. And isn't it fun that my vintage newsprint paper in the background even has a bicycle on it?!
To win your own copy of this issue, leave a comment on this post telling me what is your favorite stamp style - are you shabby chic, clean and simple, whimsical? how would you classify yourself?! You have until Sunday, January 29th at midnight (EST) to comment for your chance to win! For more chances and to see more beautiful cards, visit each of the designers listed here:
