Paper Crafts Stamp It! 3 Ways Designer Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Welcome to Paper Crafts Stamp It! 3 Ways Designer Blog Hop!




Each of today's blog hop designers was asked to make a card using one the sets they used in the Stamp It! 3 Ways issue. I decided to use this fun set from Hero Arts called Many Dots:




There are just SO many fun ways to use this set. Here's the card I made for today's hop:


I used the small solid circle stamp to create the background. On the front panel I white heat embossed various images from the set and went over it with distress inks using an ink blending tool.

Since this issue of Stamp It! is all about using a stamp set in 3 different ways I thought I'd share 2 other cards I've made using this set.This next one is the one that was published in Stamp It! 3 Ways. Here I used various images from the set to make the background paper and used the flower image for a main element.


For my final card (which I believe I've shared before) I used the polka dot circle and stamped it multiple times in different colours on die cut circles and adhered them to the card to make rows of scallops.


Here's the full list of blog hop participants:

 Jaclyn Miller
·         Julie Masse
·         Laura Williams
·         Heidi Van Laar
·         Emily Leiphart
·         Mariana Grigsby
·         Julia Stainton
·         Sarah Moerman    <---- YOU ARE HERE
·         Karen Baker
·         Laura O’Donnell
·         Kelley Eubanks
·         Kimberly Crawford


I hope you'll check out what everyone has created and be sure to comment at ALL our blogs as each designer is giving away a copy of Stamp It! 3 Ways. Also be sure to leave a comment on the Paper Crafts Connection blog for another chance to win a copy as well as a VERY exciting prize!!! Paper Crafts is giving one lucky commenter ALL of the stamps featured in this issue! (see below) WOW!!! (All deadlines are Sunday, January 29th at midnight).
