  11. Here is a link to a post I just did about a project using HOTP stamps. Is this how we are supposed to enter the contest?

  12. wendy says:

    I’m soooo looking forward to the webisodes – I’m still working my way through the archive and learning all sorts of new things! My card is a S-card, which doesn’t really show up well in the scan. I used Far East Beauty (love that set!) and the Classic Cardmakers pack. Thanks for the shot at a fabulous prize package!

  13. Here is my entry. Thanks for the chance to win. Your company is the only on-line company I have ordered from!

  14. Can we enter more then one? I have another card I like better then the first one I posted?

  15. Ceil says:

    I’m attaching an ATC card that I did with Far East dazzles and a piece of scrap paper from one of my mom’s card making kits. I’m new to paper crafting…my mom has been an avid paper crafter for years, and now has me hooked too! I love the Far East and botanical designs.

  16. Linda Emory says:

    I would love to win this prize – it is a great chance. Thanks

  17. Cheryl says:

    I forgot to say that the stamps used are from the Medallions and Corners set and from Tiny Words & Images. Also, my blog entry about this card is here:

  18. I just love PW stamp sets! Erin can we enter more than once or am I being cheeky?

  19. Cheryl says:

    Here’s my entry. I made it using paper and stamps from Hot Off the Press. The stamps I used were from these two sets: Medallions & Corners, and Tiny Words & Images. The “Birthday Wishes” is one stamp. To use it as I did, I inked first the one word and printed it, then cleaned that off and inked the other word. Since only one picture can be attached here, I’m adding my blog address where it shows what this “Telescoping Oval” card looks like when opened up:

  20. I used the small love tree stamp (HOTP-1034) with one of my favorite papers, black & white swirl (HOTP-10122) to make an anniversary card. I really like the small love tree stamp since the design is just so cute! I love the swirly branches with little hearts. I also like the price (99 cents)!!! Thanks Paper Wishes!!!

  21. Exciting to be part of the first giveaway for PW’s blog! I’m just starting to purchase the new clear acrylic stamps and one of my favorites is this floral swirl border stamp shown on my featured card!

  22. Char-D says:

    Here is a tag I made for this challenge. It is also posted on my blog: Paper Crafts, Pass It On, and lists all of the stamping supplies from Paper Wishes (with Links)that I used.

  23. Elizabeth says:

    Here’s a card I made using the dinosaur small stamp. Love those small stamps! Thanks for the chance to win some goodies.

  24. Luz says:

    Dear Erin,
    Thank you so much for giving us, Paper Wishes (PW) fans, the opportunity to show off using your wonderful products. I created a 12×12 scrapbook page. I used stamps from two stamp sets: 1. Swirls 2. Flowers. I used the swirls stamp for the background of my title and for one of picture mats. I then stamped four different flower stamps on white cardstock, colored them with watercolor paints (shimmer), cut them out and added PW brads, Bits of Bling, and stickles to the centers. Additional PW products include: Diamond Folds template (brown border left hand side), 12×12 Paper Pizazz Blue/Brown dots, Oranage and Green papers from the Cardsmaker’s Citrus Creative pack; brown papers, letters, leaves, and journaling tag from the Journal Kit for the Earthy Girl/Classic Girl. I think I got everything 🙂 I would like to thank you again for this wonderful opportunity!

  25. Violet says:

    I like this card better then the first one I posted.
    I really like the mini stamps and use them all the time.

    • Erin says:

      It’s adorable! Way to go – getting to your holiday cards early!

      • Cheryl says:

        Violet, cute card. I recently got that stamp, but haven’t used it yet. I think it makes a great focal for Christmas cards.

        (I had trouble with reading the “two words” correctly and the first time my comment went elsewhere.)

  26. Violet says:

    …and here’s another card using the mini stamp of presents. I’m well on my way to getting my Christmas cards done on time this year!

  27. I’ve learned a lot from Paper Wishes Webisodes especially on card making when I started making handmade cards a few years ago. I should thank Sara who sparked my interest to try stamping. Since then, I’ve been on the look out for new stamps from PW.

    For this submission, I have made a square shape corner bookmark. The link for this corner bookmark can be found at my blog at this link

    Thanks and I’m so looking forward to the WOW soon!

  28. Cheryl says:

    I’m not sure if we’re allowed to enter more than once, but since it doesn’t say, I’m assuming that we can like we have been able to in the other PW contests. (If not, you can just delete my comment or post it with a note that it won’t count for the drawing.)

    This card is made as what is called a “Joy Fold” card. I used PW small cupcake stamp set as well as stamps from the “Tiny Words and Images” set. Instructions and more views showing how it opens can be found on my blog:

  29. Cheryl says:

    Here’s another project I’ve made with stamping supplies from Paper Wishes. It is a Sara Surfaces 4-Fold Folder. I stamped it with stamps from the “Sweet Blossoms and Swirls” set. For details of what I did and to see other views of the folder, check out my website, here:

    • Erin says:

      Wow, what a great original design! Thanks!

      • Cheryl says:

        The sweet blossoms & swirls set has some wonderful designs. I also really like being able to create my own backgrounds using distress inks. (Loved that webisode where they showed these techniques!) Looking forward to some more great ideas!

  30. Carol J says:

    It is exciting to have a give away. Here is my entry, all Paper Wishes. Paper Tole is really fun to work with.

  31. Shannon says:

    I love the small dandelion stamp. I also used the dandelion from the botanicals stamp set for the background.

  32. Michelle Walsh says:

    Hope I got this one on time!!

  33. Cheryl says:

    Cute card. I got that stamp but haven’t been able to use it yet. I think it makes a great focal for a Christmas card.

  34. Diane Young says:

    The blog giveaway prize package arrived today and it’s just as awesome as I thought it would be! The only problem is that I’ve just had surgery on my right hand (and, yes, I’m right-handed!) so I can’t play with any of my new toys. It may be as long as 8 weeks before I can use my hand. I am so frustrated, as you can imagine.
