Go-to-Gal Stamp It! challenge (2-25)

Hello, hello!

To celebrate the release of Stamp It! Cards,  Brandy recently challenged  the Go-to-Gals to hold a Stamp It! 3 Ways challenge.

The six of us split in two groups of three. And each group picked one stamp set to work with and make some cards.

I ended up in the group with Kim K. and Kim H. And we chose the Birthday Cages clear stamp set from Stampendous! to work with.

Click here and you can see the set in all its glory in the Stampendous! online store.

It took a little bit of thinking, but here’s the card I came up with. 🙂

I stamped one of the set’s cages twice, cut them out and embellished them with stamped birds, a door and ribbon.  I used a sewing machine to stitch the chains the cages are hanging from.

I also did some stamping with some stamps not from the Stampendous! set. The words are from Technique Tuesday’s Aviary set, while the polka dots are from their Passion for Polka set.

Go here to see what Kim K. did with the set. Go here to see what Kim H. did.

And go check out Maren, Betsy and Jess, too, to see what stamp set they worked with for the challenge and what they came up.

Leave a comment on all our blogs and on Brandy’s post today on the Paper Crafts Connection blog and you could win six stamps sets featured in the new issue of Stamp It! Cards! (Just to clarify, your name gets in the drawing each time you comment. So by posting on each of our blogs and on the Paper Crafts Connection blog, you get 7 big chances to win!) Wooohoo! Comments must be made by midnight M.S.T. on Friday the 26th.

And one more thing. 🙂 I’ve got a copy of Stamp It! Cards to give away.  I’ll pick one lucky person who comments on my blog to receive a copy of the magazine.

Thanks for stopping by. I’ll be back later.

  14. I love those birdcages. Your color choices make me think of spring and with all this snow and cold…it can’t come soon enough.

  15. I love the way you stamped the cages in different colors and had them at angles, as if swinging from a cord. So playful! thanks for the inspiration

  16. My first thought in seeing this stamp set was how to put the birds inside the cage – you just put them outside, good going. I also like that you used stitching for the chain.

  17. Wow, I love bird cages. I have some outside with plants in them (I used to have birds). Makes me want to go out and get some birds again. The cards are great. I hope I win!

  22. Hello. This is my first time seeing your blog. Cute, cute, cute! I really like this color combination, which surprised me! Thanks for inspiring me!

  23. Love how you “hung” the birdcages by a stitched “chain” – so creative!! Thanks for the inspiration AND a chance to win.

  24. Hi Teri- I saw this card as I was following the links from Paper Hugs, and I really would like to post it on our blog! Your Stampendous Birthday Birdcage challenge was very successful. I love the colors and the fact that the birds are pink, and I also thought it was very clever the way you used stitching to create the appearance of the cages swinging off to the sides instead of just hanging straight down. You should be so proud of this one- with over 300 comments!
