ABC Blog Hop with myStampBOX!


ETA: The prizes for this hop have been awarded.
Thanks for joining us!


Welcome to the ABC Blog Hop with myStampBOX today! You should have arrived from Gudrun's blog.

If you have just happened upon my blog today, you may want to head to the start of the blog hop today, the myStampBOX blog.


For participating in the blog hop by leaving a comment on each and every participating myStampBOX designer's blog, you have a chance to win one of TWO brand new stamps sets being released this month! So leave a comment on all the blog posts and then come back to the mSB blog and tell us what your favorite project was along the way for a chance to win! Have fun!




Here's the card that I made using the Letterboxes set of alphabet stamps from myStampBOX. (Quick side note: this style of alpha stamps also comes in a larger size!) I started with a distressed piece of We R Memory Keepers "Teen Angst" paper as my base. I lined up the individual alpha stamps onto two different clear acrylic blocks, lining them up in a grid. I inked up all the letters on one block and stamped them as one large unit. Depending on how the alphabet landed on my paper, I continued stamping one or two individual letters until I could start over with the groups on the blocks. It made for some fast and easy stamping! The result is a cool custom background paper. I also used this set of stamps on layouts shown here and here.

Here is the ABC Blog Hop schedule just in case you missed anyone:
