Wonderful Wednesday Giveaway - Stampin' Up! & The Block Guy

Today's giveaway is for 24 saying stamps from Stampin' Up!.

That's right, 24! Today I am giving away the "Lots of Thoughts" set, which normally is a set of 6...but this is a set of 24. The set has been cut apart and remounted for you on 12 blocks (2 sayings to a block) by using the blocks from The Block Guy, our sponsor of today's giveaway. I just love the idea that using a few more blocks expands the use of so many sets! Mitch Kemp, who IS The Block Guy, sells many other block sets to coordinate with many SU sets. Go take a look!

Already have this set? GREAT! Use one mounted with all the sayings and use one with the sayings separated! Double the fun : )

In addition to the stamps, the winner will receive the card above, which uses the Webbed Acetate Technique from the December 2005 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. (I just got 9 new Cuttlebug folders, too, hence the background; I am in heaven!).

Here is what I did for the winner, and what you could do with just 6 more blocks from The Block Guy. First, This is the original set:

I simply punched out the stamps (they come pre-punched which is pretty darn handy!), and cut the stamps apart. I use Kai scissors to do this; some people prefer a craft knife. If some of the words are close together, simply bend the rubber a bit to separate them when cutting.

When cut, I mounted one saying to each side of a block.

I added the index print to the sides...and viola! A set of 24.

Now, here are the details for the giveaway:
