Dazzling Blog Hop Winners!

Prize Package from Add a Little Dazzle

 

It was a week of fantastic fun with all the designer projects combining Add A Little Dazzle and Stampendous products. You did your part and commented and now it’s time to see who gets to make their own goodies with free products!

We counted up the blog hop posts from the whole week of  bloggers, put that number into Random.org, and chose three posts from which to pick our comment prize winners. Our bloggers were Gracielle, Pam Hornschu, and Keren Baker. We totaled the comments on each post…subtracted the ones from DT members, then we used Random.org again to choose a winning number from each of those blogs:

 

 Gracielle posted on a Delicate Snowflakes card and here is commenter 11 :

Winner 1 from Graciellie Design's blog

Pam Hornschu posted her Cardinal Gift box and commenter 17:

Winner 2 from Pam Hornshu's blog

Keren Baker’s Blog posted the Snowman Banners Gift Bag and commenter 32:

Winner 3 from Keren Baker's blog

So Burning Rubber, Donna and Janis, please email us your mailing address at submissions@stampendous.com and we’ll get a Prize Package right out to each of you! Congratulations! And thanks so much to all of you who took time to comment on the blogs. It means so much to the individual bloggers to get your happy feedback!

A note about our Blog Contests – we’ve heard from some of you that you think the same people win all the time on blog contests all over the web. Yep, you’re probably right! We want to assure you that all our drawings are completely random (except that if the name we draw doesn’t have a US mailing address or we can’t tell if you have a U.S. mailing address, we put that name back and draw again).

Want to increase your chances of winning? You’ll notice that winners comment on lots and lots of blogs and lots and lots of posts. That can be time-consuming, sure, they’re earning their winnings. We’ve got some familiar names among the comments on our blog and other social media! We’re super grateful to and appreciative of the folks who time and again visit us on the web, tell us they like what we’re doing, and share it with their friends. They’re doing exactly what we want them to do, and we’re really happy when they win! We won’t tell them they can only win every few months, or otherwise limit them. If we did, they wouldn’t visit us as often. We want you to know that our contests winners are chosen completely at random. Enter more = win more! It’s that easy. Thanks for playing. If you need our Official Rules, they’re always available.

Skulls Galore!

Howdy Crafters!

We had a fabulous time last week partnering with Add A Little Dazzle and the Dazzling Divas. Both teams created such fabulous projects that we started a Pinterest board for you to be able to easily see them long after our collaboration week was over. We love to share with you when we have a collaboration week so there was a chance to win some of the goodies we used, three prize packages to be exact, for commenting on the design team blogs throughout the week. We will be posting the winners in a separate post.

We are chattering to the bone with excitement over this week’s Skulls Galore theme.

A Skeleton Wedding Card

Happily Ever After Card by Suzanne Czosek

Suzanne Czosek created this wedding card that delights us right down to the marrow of our crafty little bones. She used Skull Roses and Mr. Skulleton as wedding party and for the friends and family a Skull Stack background.

Here are some more designer projects being shared today.

Here’s a fun project featuring our Cling Blossom Beauty plus our Cling Hydrangea Garden Set and the Hydrangea Garden Cutting Dies Set. This card was made previously by our in-house Sample Artist Debi Hammons. I was able to bling it up very quickly with the addition of just a few hydrangea blossoms cut from the gorgeous turquoise metal sheets. I stamped them with StazOn Ultramarine ink, die cut them with our Sizzix Big Shot, cut between the petals with scissors and crumpled them up a bit, then added some of our gorgeous Teal Micro Glitter with a drop of Zip Dry by Beacon Adhesives. Talk about adding a LOT of Dazzle!!
