Day 3 Surprise Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Blog Hop Day 2
Blog Hop Day 1

Hello my crafty friends!!
Welcome to day 3 of Jo’s Scrap Shack’s Surprise Blog Hop!
  Today’s hop is day 3 of a 4 day hop and the new launch and release of a brand new company called “3 Twenty Crafts”!
The stamp set that we show each day will be given away to one lucky winner, but in order to win the set you must hop along and visit each design team member’s blog, leave a comment and then comment back here and let me know that you have completed the hop! The winner will be random and nobody knows 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 “Background Builders
 This is what I created using this stamp set.
 Okay so for my first card here, I used the thin block outline stamp to create the half-page triangle art of colors. I stamped this stamp using various inks from PaperTrey Ink. I used the round circle outline stamp which is from another set of mine that will be showcased on Thursday, and added 3 circles. Ya know, that rule of 3! I used my stickles to create some sparkle as I love my stickles and the sentiment is from the "Up and Away" stamp set by Cardz TV Stamps. My cardstock is Bazzill and I used a pattern paper layer that I had in my stash from MME's Stella Rose Collection. Now onto my second card using Background Builders....
 Okay so for this card, I used the checkered border and the thin straw border to build my background paper. The checkered border was stamped in momento tuxedo black ink and I used some stickles inside the gray squares. The straw border was stamped in some Canyon Clay ink from Papertrey Ink. I used the wine glass from my "Happy Harvest" set (featured on Monday), colored it using some copics and again applied some stickles and created some bubbly! The sentiment, "Cheers to a New Year" is from the Cardz TV Stamp Set "Very Merry". I popped this layer up on foam tape for some added dimension. All cardstock is Bazzill.
Well my friends that is my project for today. I really LOVED how my cards turned out. I hope you did too and  Just a reminder.. in order to win Background Builders, visit each blog along the hop and leave a comment! Also, all four sets that will be released this week will be available for purchasing on Thursday, November 21st at 3pm and will ship out on Monday, November 25th!
