3 Twenty Crafts - A New Stamp Company


Hello & good afternoon to all you lovely bloggers at the start of another week.
 
Welcome to Jo’s Scrap Shack’s Surprise Blog Hop! Why a “surprise” hop? Well up until now it had to be kept as a surprise but today…is the day another dream comes true!
 Ready for the surprise? Today’s hop is the first day of a 4 day hop and the new launch and release of a brand new company called “3 Twenty Crafts”!
Jo has decided to launch her very own company and stamp line!!! It's so exciting, right?? Every day we will be showing you a  brand new stamp set from 3 Twenty Crafts and you certainly don't want to miss this!
The stamp set premiered each day will be given away to one lucky winner. To win the set you must hop along and visit each design team member’s blog, leave a comment and then comment on Jo’s blog and let her know that you have completed the hop! The winner will be random and we have no idea which blog the winner will be chosen from. So make sure to visit each blog and leave some bloggy love!
 Today we are showing you the new and awesome stamp set “Happy Harvest
  

 This is what I created using this stamp set.

 My first card with the new 3 Twenty Crafts Happy Harvest clear stamp set uses a Sizzix EF over one of the Dylusions backgrounds I had created earlier. Did a bit of shading on the leaves & tree trunk and some shadows around the tree & fencing. The pumpkin motif from the set was stamped on a snippet of another Dylusions background using Memento Rich Cocoa. Colored with Derwent Inktense pencils.  Apples were stamped on a snippet white Xpress paper, colored with copics. Highlighted with a white Signo pen, and pumpkins & apples were fussy cut. Popped up with dimensional tape. The sentiment from the Harvest set was stamped on another snippet with Rich Cocoa, cut in a rectangle, rounded corners, edged with DI Spiced Marmalade & Barn Door. Used Antique Linen and Tea Dye to avoid the very 'white' look. Added the 2 apples and this is a finished card! I quite like it. Loved the stamps too.
 
 
I could only fit one of the cutout pumpkin stamps on the 1st card (and since I had worked hard coloring these I wasn't about to not use them!) I decided to make a second card with the new Happy Harvest stamp set. Card base covered with a glossy pumpkin motif paper from a small DCWV stack of seasonal appropriate paper. The brown border is from another DCWV that was a textured companion of solids to the patterned pack. Used an MS twig border punch for the edges. Another harvest gold piece was trimmed, embossed with a favorite dots folder. A small snippet of the brown rectangle was embossed with Versamark, the Ranger Queen's Gold for the sentiment. Popped up my pencil colored punkins and at the last minute added the little flower as I spied it lurking a-top the mess on my desk!
 
If you've any questions about the products used on these cards, please leave a comment, and I will edit the post to answer.

Well my friends that is my project for today. I sure hope you have enjoyed hearing the great news and I hope you are as excited as I am about this awesome-ness!! LOL

Your colouring of these images is great Mary. Both cards look great. I'm still not very good. Sometimes I can colour an image and I'm really pleased with it, other times I'm just pure rubbish!! I need a magic wand waved over me I think. Christine x

Great way to use those pretty pumpkins and I don't blame you for making another card so you could get them on there. You colored those pumpkins and apples soooo pretty. Your cards say "FALL" in a huge way with the wonderful colors. I have that embossing folder you used on your first card and I haven't used it this year. Duh!

Mary I really love your creations. Great that you got to make two cards as it would have been a shame not to use those pumpkins after you'd coloured them so beautifully.

Love the dylusions background with the embossing, and if I had colored and cut out those pumpkins you can bet I'd figure out a way to use them all, too!

Like the embellishing of the twigs. Like the embossing folder of the Autumn scene & how you colored the embossing. I have that embossing folder.

HI Mary- I have the same embossing folder used for the first card and you have inspired me to use with stamps the same way you did on your display today - how lovely! Your second card is just as lovely- thanks for sharing and enjoy your crafting week!
