On Saturday, (September 11, 2010), a winner will be chosen from those participants who visited all the blogs listed for today. (There will be four different winners, one winner for each day of the blog hop. You DO NOT have to comment every day. However, the more days you comment, the more chances you have to win!) If you miss a day, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning!
My first project is serving two purposes – the Stampin’B’s challenge for this week and also Day 3 of the Blog Hop.
I was the hostess for this week’s Stampin’B’s challenge – a color challenge (pink, blue, and green). I made this little Post-It note holder using the tutorial on SCS. The papers from Basic Grey’s Euphoria paper pad use the three colors in the challenge. The cute little porcupine from Stinky Situation is stamped in Palette Noir Black and clear embossed. Did you get the connection? Sticky notes . . . porcupine quills. Sorry about that! My late husband always said I had a weird sense of humor!
I love the birch tree image from this set. After stamping the larger of the two skunks in Palette Noir Black (clear embossed), I masked it and stamped the birch trees in Memento Rich Cocoa. One of the leaves from a 4-die Cuttlebug die set looks very much like a birch leaf. It is glued down on just half, with the other half raised up. The brown background (MFP Hazelnut) was embossed using one of the Tim Holtz embossing folders, then stamped with Versamark all over and clear embossed. IRL it almost makes it look like leather.
I have neither porcupine nor skunk salt and pepper shakers, but I thought these armadillos would work with today’s critters.
Don’t forget -- For another chance to win a free stamp set, be sure to visit the blogs of the rest of today’s design team and comment on each.
