Stampin' Up! POP Promotion is Ending Soon. You Can Win the Stamp Set or Designer Series Papers Used in These Cards. Here's How...

I am sure you want to know how to win this great stamp set or POP block of papers, but first I want to show you what I made with it last night.

The POP double sided designer papers talk "country" to me, and I have been thinking about combining the stamps from this Hostess Free stamp set with the papers for a while. The "A Little Bit Of Happiness" set is really versatile, and can be used for many occasions.

I sat down last night and played mix n match with the papers and card stock. I always knew I would be using water-colour paper (love the texture), for this project, and the colouring method using Stampin' Write Markers with Aqua Painters is just so easy and tidy when working in a small area.

For colouring the images, I decided to limit myself to the colours of the papers - Rose Red, Almost Amethyst, Certainy Celery and So Saffron.

The first card I made is quite simple with the image stamped in Stazon onto the water-colour paper. I only used 3 colours for the colouring here, and was quite please with how it turned out.

The full card is very simple and not at all like I usually make, but I still like it.

The real positive is that it took such a short time to make, and you can easily stamp and colour a number of images in one sitting and then use them as the need arises.

The next card uses So Saffron as the base colour.

Then I added some contrasting pattern and colour by using the Almost Amethyst paper as a matt for the coloured image. I added a little Rose Red into the colouring palette and found that brightened the card.

To finish off, I pierced holes around the edge (using the Crafters Tool Kit hole guide and piercing tool) and drew in faux stitching with the Almost Amethyst Marker Pen

The scalloping is made by removing the guide from the new (smaller) Corner Rounder Punch, and the ribbon is White Tafetta.

If you would like to win this Hostess Free Set all you need to do is email me a Stampin' Up Products order for a minimum of $100.00. The first order received wins the "A Little Bit of Happiness" stamp set.
