Paper Crafts Stamp It! 3 Ways Winner

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to pop in and thank you all for the wonderful comments you left over the weekend regarding the Paper Crafts Stamp It! 3 Ways blog hop. :)

BloggerI also need to pick a winner for a copy of this fabulous issue. My son and did it very scientifically. ;) I slowly scrolled down the page of comments until he said 'stop'. He then closed his eyes and moved the mouse around and when he stopped this is the comment he stopped on. ;)

Fantastic use of the circles! I love emboss resist. And the scales of the last card are so bright and cheery! Great job!

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:
