To win the complete Contain Yourself unmounted collection and here's how it works!  

You can have as many as NINE chances to win, you will receive one chance per blog that you comment on. So what that means is comment on one blog and you will earn one chance. Comment on 3 blogs and earn 3 chances and so on. Comment on each of the blogs and The House That Stamps Built blog and you would have collected a total of nine chances....hey, that is pretty good odds!

Complete the hop and post your comments no later than 5pm eastern time on Sunday, June 29th.  The winner will be announced at The House That Stamps Built on Monday, June 30th.  

Here are a few cards I've created with this fantastic new set.

What a great set this many combinations to create with.  I put the beta in this bowl and colored with Copic Markers.  

 I heat embossed this card on vellum with white embossing powder and colored it on the reverse side with Copic Markers.  I then mounted it on a soft blue layer of cs trimmed just 1/8" larger than the vellum panel.  

For this card, I stamped the jar on vellum, fussy cut the image after coloring it with Copic Markers.  I took some pink Distress Stickles spread it on the back side of the image with my finger.  I then bent or bowed the jar to look dimensional and layered it against the die cut panel.  I then stamped the sentiment with VersaMark and sprinkled silver ep on it and heat embossed it.  I cut it out using a label die from Spellbinders.  Add some embellishments and there you have it.  

Thanks for sticking it out for my long description.....good luck and thanks for hopping with us.  

Here is the order of the hop.  What until you see what all these talented Rock Stars have created with this awesome set of stamps.

Hello blog friends!  

It's time for another What If? Wednesday sketch at Repeat Impressions.  I hope you'll join us.  You can get all the details over at The House That Stamps Built.

Here's the fabulous sketch Wendy has given us to play with.  

Here's a card I made using the sketch

I made this CAS card using stamps from the new "Wine Time" stamp set.  #9503-L "Wine Glass" and #9510-E "Wine Glass".   The embossing folder is from Stamp N Up and I used Copic Markers to color the glass.  I wish I had centered the sentiment better...I lost my "stamp a ma jig and tried to eye ball the placement.  Oops!  Guess I'll be buying a new one.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  For more inspiration please visit my Rock Star teamies.
