Stamp It! Cards Meets Stamping Royalty Blog Hop


Welcome to  the Stamp It! Cards meets Stamping Royalty Blog Hop!.. We are celebrating the new and fantastic  Stamp It! Cards issue. If you haven’t seen it yet, I  recommend picking up a copy for your self. This issue is full of inspiration, variety of styles,  and fresh ideas for any occasion… Please click here to find it…

Since I  was chosen to be  one of the fifteen winners of the Stamping Royalty Contest 2011,  I have been feeling very happy and honored 😀  I think that the motivation that comes along with the great prize that we have received  is simply priceless, and is something that you will never forget. Stamping keeps my  mind and hands busy, and gives me the chance to create, and give at the same time…Which I think is pretty cool 8) Well, this blog hop besides being a lot of fun, is also about giving back. The 4th of July is  around the corner, so a patriotic theme is very suitable, and linking it to a good cause is a fantastic idea too. We are  donating our cards to the Operation Write Home  and we encourage you to do so. This great organization has a mission to send handmade cards to our deployed troops. Please take a couple minutes to read about them,  their card needs, and requirements by clicking here). At the end of this post,  you will find an Inlinkz tool that you can use if you wish to share some of the cards that would like to donate  or if you prefer, you can link them on the Paper Crafts Connection page 🙂

Now, let me tell you a bit about my card. The card that I created features one of the sets that was included in our prize package.  This set is from Verve Stamps and is called Birthday Bash. It is a very complete set ,full of great images and sentiments.  Of course, I am using patriotic colors…

Of course there are some prizes  included in this fun Blog Hop. What do you need to do? You need to leave a comment on every blog for the chance to win a copy of Stamp It! Vol. 8 and then, you need to comment on Paper Crafts Connection for the chance to win one of two prize packages that you can see below:
