Blog Hop - Day Four

Today is Day Four of the Technique Junkie Blog Hop Extravaganza (if you haven't been following along, why don't you take a look at this post),  and today we partner with the talented folks at Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company. I hope you started hopping at the TJ Design Team Blog, but if not, go there now and start fresh!

I made a Fancy Fold-out Card from the 3D and Fun Folds CD to celebrate the hop today. I was really intimidated at first by this technique -- but it was simple as pie! (I did find an error on the tutorial, though, so if you have purchased the Cd and would like the correction to the instructions, email me and I will send it to you: phuntoon@optonline.net.) This is what the card looks like opened up:

Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company, is sponsoring our giveaway today. The gorgeous stamps I used on my artwork are from the Ice and Snow set -- the set that is being given away to one lucky winner who leaves a comment on my blog! This is what the set looks like:
And don'tcha just love the icicles? They may be my new favorite winter stamps! This is what they look like all "iced-up":
Here is a list of all of the hoppers today -- such talented ladies!








Don't forget, Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Company also has a stamp set in the Grand Prize Package, too. To enter for today's prize, and for the Grand Prize, simply leave me a comment on this blog. I will be selecting the daily winners on Saturday, then the overall winner will be announced on Monday, December 5th. Good luck!

One last thing! We would love to see what you make with this technique, the free Double Twisted Easel Technique, or any technique from the 3D CD! If you want to play along with us, link up to the hop using the linky tool below. You do NOT need to play along in order to win any prize (you only need to leave a comment). have fun!

I soooo LOVE this wonderful card on all the blogs I have seen it on today, but it does look complicated.
I LOVE yours as it uses the stamps set I LOVE...it reminds me of our road, and our old house and land.
I hope I win this set, but if not, down the road I'll have to treat myself to it, LOL
Thanks for all you do and the wonderful inspiration!
