Making cards! And the PC Stamping Contest. :)

Did you submit to the Stamping Royalty contest over at Paper Crafts Magazine?  That is my favorite PC contest.  I know I've entered at least once previously, maybe twice?  Anyway, I submitted this time, and had an absolute great time doing so!

There are five categories in the contest, and this time I submitted to all five.  (a first for me)  I had ink all over my desk, as I stamped on pre-made embellishments, stamped on patterned paper, stamped and paper pieced, stamped and punched the same image multiple times, and stamped to make a worn/distressed look.

I ended up with five cards that I love.  And that feels great.  No expectations in the contest.  Just had fun making something from the heart.  And if my designs are not chosen, the cards go to someone I don't know to help lift them up!  That is so rewarding!

I also made a card and submitted it to a recent PC call.  I had fun using my favorite products, on all six cards.   I think the part that made me smile most was using SRM stickers on ribbons!  Love the effect!

I have a box of cards to send to Scrap and Stamp Arts, and I am hoping to beef up the box and include more.  Are you crafting this coming weekend?  I'd love to send more cards to PC for all calls right now.  And darn it, I missed another Cards Magazine call.  I'd love to create some cards for that.

And, YES, this weekend, I will go to the Teresa Collins class, soooo excited!  Thanks for dropping in, and I'd love to see what you are working on!  :)
