Stampotique Designer's Blog Hop Magical Mystery Tour

Join us for Stampotique's Magical Mystery Tour today.  Why a Magical Mystery Tour?  Comment on all the blogs and along the way we have 2 mystery prizes to give away.  

If you have arrived here from ~{Valerie's Blog}~  then you are in the right place, if not, you may want to begin at the ~{Stampotique Designer's Blog}~ and begin your tour from there.

A few weeks ago, Valerie had us recycling and this week she has us cleaning house again!!!  She's challenging us to dig in our stash to see ow many scraps we can use up in our projects.  Just about anything qualifies as a scrap - as long as you're utilizing a piece or part of something that you generated before but never used up... it counts!  So what will it be?  Bits of an old master board or freaky background?  Leftover pieces of your favorite designer paper?  Part of an old piece of grunge board?  Fragments of a previously inked image?  Or the remnants of some odd embellishment?  Let's see just how creative you can be!

As you make your way through the tour make sure you comment on each and every post. There will be 2 prize winners chosen randomly amongst the blogs.  For some additional chances to win another prize join us with our "Scraps" Challenge using your Stampotique stamps for your chance at a $30 gift certificate for Stampotique stamps and at being our August Guest Designer, see our ~{blog}~ for additional information.

Our tour will end on June 28th and the winner or the 2 tour prizes will be announced on our blog on June 29th.

You will want to jump on over to ~{Jane's Blog}~  to see what kind of scraps she has used on our Magical Mystery Tour.




For my card, I stamped ~{2005 Floral Display}~ onto scraps of patterned paper, cut them out and stacked them to form 3D flowers. I then stamped  ~{8865 Perhaps the are not stars ..}~ onto a scrap of white card, die cut the shape around it and lightly coloured the edge.
The Leaf Flourish chipboard by ~{Tando-Creative}~ isn't really a scrap, but it has been pushed around my desktop for the last couple of months so I'm classing this as one!!!

Enjoy the Tour!

Oh now that IS stunning. I love using scraps for flowers - such a great way to make something out of nothing. I have never been seduced into the world of 3D decoupage but I have to say it looks very effective here!
