Day 3 of HA/PTI Stamp Challenge and GIVEAWAY!

Hey there! Before doing the challenge, I want to mention a great giveaway. A sweet girl named Amy Tangerine sent lots of shirts for Colin, Kay and Audrey. AMAZING handmade shirts. Here is Colin sporting his handmade tie shirt. Love. And a "hug life" shirt I wear often. And! An adorable personalized shirt I had made for Colin to give to his girlfriend for her 4th birthday. SO cute in real life...

Well, I have two more of Amy's handmade shirts to giveaway (both are size XS - great for a teen). Just leave a comment here by Sunday night and I will pick two winners - each will get one of these shirts...

Tan shirts
If you are interested in personalized shirts made by Amy, contact her HERE.

AND! Amy also has a great online workshop starting soon called "Get Those Creative Juices Flowing." Be sure to check it out HERE - it looks like a stand-out class with lots of fab info.

Now, onto the challenge...

It is Day 3 of my Hero Arts and Papertrey Ink Challenge with Maile Belles. Be sure to head to her blog next - she is one talented gal. Today we are using the Hero Arts Music Background and the Papertrey Ink All About You set...


And here is my take on these stamps. I stamped the music background (which can be used anytime - not just for holiday) with Platinum Metallic Staz-On Ink on a acetate (clear) card from Hero Arts. (See a tip below.) After lots of white embossing, Distress Inking and more, this is what I came up with...

OK... a little tip for ya. When stamping on smooth surfaces (such as transparency or acetate) with Staz-On Inks, it is very easy to mess up. Most of the mess-ups actually occur when pulling your removing your stamp after inking. So, be sure to use THIS Stamp Press for this kind of stamping. (I actually use it for all stamping now.) After you stamp you simply release the press and it pops up on it's feet. No mess-ups...

Lots of fun using these stamps together. Now head on over to Maile's blog!

See you tomorrow.

Super, super cute card Jen. I love the music background on the clear acetate!! xx

Absolutely gorgeous Jen, just love the use of the acetate card with those beautiful muted tones, and what can I say about Colin in that beautiful T shirt of Amy's way too cute. Now I am off to see what fantastic creation Maile has created. Hugs!

The shirts are all adorable. I would love to be able to give my 15 year old one. They're just her style.

What darling T-shirts, A-DOR-A-BLE!

Beautiful!!! I have been very excited to see the metallic Staz-on in action, thank you :o)

Very cute tee shirts! I like the music background stamped on a transparency--very cool!

Adorable t-shirts!!! LOVE your card! Beautiful, warm colors!

Love your design! Have always liked acetate cards!

Love the card and the shirts! I have a sweet teenage niece whom I would love to give one of those shirts! Thanks for the chance! I'm behind on blogging this week. I'll have to catch up with the rest of the posts you've done with Mailes....

Adorable shirts! Your is super cute!

I am just amazed by everything you make. The card and the t-shirt are rockin.

Beautiful! You really brought that flower to LIFE! :)

Those shirts are ADORABLE!! Love, love, love...

Amazing card as always. That music background rocks!

Adorable shirts! It would brighten your day everytime you wear them!

Beautiful card. Love the shirts too.

beautiful work, always love acrylic cards.
I have seen you use the stamp press before and I think I need one. I have been using the C plate of my cuttlebug for large stamps and it's not always a good thing. Thanks for the tip and link.

Love the shirts and the clear card!

What a gorgeous card, Jennifer! It reminds me to use my acetate again. :)

Cute T's. I have a couple of little nieces that would love them :)

this card is fabulous!!! And I have been wanting the stamp press since you first mentioned it here...time to get a Micahel's coupon ready =)

Love the Tees and that card is GAAAAAW-JUS!!!

looove the cards!
i just got the fiskers stamp press and im head over heels!! now i can see how u love it soo much!!
thanks for all the great tips and techniques, they r so helpful!

Awesome card!

The tshirts are amazing...would love to win one for my 13 year old daughter. Love the card also...excited to see a sample made with this Tim Holtz die that I just bought! Woohoo!

Man, that girl IS super talented! And you are too :) thanks for sharing!

Hi Jenn! Love this card! I bought this stamp when I went to Scrapfest! :> I bought the stamp press a while ago and LOVE IT! It really makes stamping easy! Sometimes I find that when I stamp with Stazon it sticks and I have to pull it away, or should I just wait until it pops off on it's own?

I was wondering if that stamp press was worth the investment. Would love to win one to put it to work for me.

Great card! I just bought the Stamp Press and can't wait to use it. I am just loving these sharings you are doing with another stamper. Both of you are great and inspiring! The t shirts are cute, too. Love the tie on Colin's.

just peel it off carefully. or tape your clear piece to the table first.

Love your card & those t-shirts are amazing.
Please don't include me in the t-shirt giveaway. I don't have anybody around that could wear that size.

Amy's shirts are just adorable - love that handmade look. I have a couple of XS teens in my house that would love one of them.....thanks!

A very cool card and what a fun giveaway for a super cute shirt!!

Love your "music card". Great idea to do on acetate. Based on your recomendations on a previous post and seeing another artist using the stamp press, my sister and I bought one last weekend when we did a Tim Holtz Vintage card class at Archivers. I know a lot of times because she does not have a lot of strength in her hands the images sometimes don't fully stamp. I bet this will help quite a bit. As always we appreciate all of your hints and inspirations.

Awww, love your little man! Amy T's are too cute! That music background stamp is one of my faves these days. Have a great weekend!

Love that music stamp! As always, great card!

Love the card! The t-shirts are adorable!

I must have the music background stamp! So cute! My DD would love one of those t-shirts too!

Love the music background on the acetate!!!! Thanks for the tip about the Stazon!!!

Oh I am just loving the music notes background you keep using!! It seriously works with any project!! Those shirts are really great, I'm totally loving the colors!!

Awesome shirts and beautiful card! I've been obsessed with Amy's mini books; I need to start making my own.

very clever. LOVE that musical background!

Please leave me out of the giveaway, Jennifer, but I just wanted to say how much I LOOOOOOVE your use of the music background on acetate! I'm thinking I may try something like this for my Christmas cards (the VERY special ones) this year.......thanks for the great idea!

I always love your acetate cards Jennifer! Beautiful!

I LOVE the music background stamp!

OH love the tees and the card is just it.

Love the green and gold together. Cool card.

Really cute t shirts! I love how you made the card with acetate.

This looks great and I love how the base is a clear card

Hi Jennifer,
Such a cute card! Love the acetate and the music background....Question, how do you make the little card out of the die cut? is there a way to cut it to make it like a card?
Thanks for your insight,
PS looking forward to the next class!

Love the shirts. WOuld love to win one of those two. Thanks for a chance to win.
