Shopaniester Stampers this is for you!
"What is Stampaganza"?, you ask..and I's awesome.
                   November 3rd until November30th, 2009
When you purchase any 2 My Acrylix decorative stamp sets (sizes A,B,C,D or E only) at the full retail price you will receive a 3rd stamp set FREE (of equal or lesser value) with a savings up to $22.95.  You can choose from any stamp set offered in any of the 2009 Idea Books or the current Product Review.
Shipping/handling do apply, but there is no tax on the free set.

Free stamp sets available are A,B,C or D size sets only.
E, K (customizable), Art & Soul, and Stamp of the Month are not available as a free set.
Workshop on the Go, SOTM, Art & Soul and K stamps do not count toward your qualifying purchase.

There is an Stampaganza icon on your right showing some of the available stamps.  Just go to my website from the welcome bar, check out the online idea book (bottom right corner) of my website home page and then go the online shopper (on the left of my home page) and place your order (24/7) and it will ship right to your door.

If you like to stamp, you can't miss out on this opportunity.  If you already love CTMH clear acrylix stamps, and haven't completed your collection of Solo stamp sets, or maybe the 12 monthly Word Puzzles (they are retiring Dec. 31) or some of your background stamps (Brilliant Backgrounds is also retiring) this is the time to get them.

SOTM Blog Hop
Welcome to the August 2009 Blog Hop and "thanks" for stopping by. There are 60+ of us this month sharing our love of stamping, scrapbooking and Close To My Heart products.
If you came here from Jamia's blog you are on the right path.I do want to apologize for the 'chingy' pictures this month, my poor camera is just about on its' last click.
This months CTMH stamp of the month is "It's Your Day" - D1352. There are 25 individual stamps in this set. This a very versatile stamp set for birthday and anniversary cards, invitations of all descriptions, package tags and not to mention awesome scrapbook embellishments. The retail price is $22.95, but me and let me tell you how to get it for FREE or at discount price.

This month I chose a tri-fold card base using our wonderful CTMH white core cardstock in the color of Juniper. It is a 4.25 x 5.5 A2 size card and fits well in an A2 envelope. There actually five panels to use in this card, but I chose to adhere the first 2 to cover my brad backs. You could also use the entire back of the card for five additional panels if you liked. Please contact me if you have any questions about making this card.

Techniques used in this card were watermarking, dry embossing, edge inking and heat embossing and sanding.

Cardstock colors used were Juniper, White Daisy and Colonial White. Inks used were Juniper, Sorbet and Versamark

Other products and tools used were paper from the Perfect Day paper pack, White Daisy embossing powder and grosgrain 3/8" ribbon, clear sparkles, 3-d foam tape, Tombow adheasive, Sorbet mini brads, sanding block and piercing tool and heat gun.

The front and back edges of the card were watermarked. Each layer of the cake was heat embossed and attached with foam strips. The "happy" was adhered with brads and the "birthday" was attached with foam strips also. There is lots of dimensions to this card.
The stripes on this panel were done with dry embossing as well as the belly band that holds the card together and then sanded with sanding block.

Please visit my website or email me at 24/7 if there is any way I can help you, or you just to chat or comment on my blog.Thanks again for joining our August Blog Hop. Come back often. Anne

SOTM Blog Hop
Welcome to the 3rd Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.
We are featuring the Close To My Heart SOTM for July, # D 1351 You've Got Flair. This set has 6 large stamps and retails for $22.95. You could have it for free or at a discounted price. Contact me to see how.
This month I have chosen to use a black, white and silver color scheme on our wonderful white core card stock. The basic card is 5.5" x 8". Layer one is also white cs with black inked edges. The second layer is the wonderful grey side of our black textured cs with black inked edges.

The medallions are stamped on basic black cs, with silver embossing powder. White daisy organdy ribbon adorns the basic medallion at the top of the card along with various sizes of our clear sparkles. The bottom hand cut medallion is layered in 3 offset and distinctly individual layers.

Unfortunately, showing the layers to their best advantage is hard. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me here, or at My Website :
If you have arrived here from Reba's blog you are on the right path.
Are you ready to hop? Go to Shannon's blog next.
If you get lost anywhere along the way, you can always go back to the beginning and start over at: Jena's blog . Just want to take a second to tell Jena "Thank You" for all the hard work she puts into this hop every month. If you enjoy doing this, why not take a moment to tell her "Thanks" too when you visit her blog.
