Together we Dance and Hop with 100 Proofpress

Today is a special day. Why you ask? Well, it's the first ever blog hop for the  100 Proof Press Design Team.  For the blog hop there's even a prize too. If you visit all the Design Team members and make a comment, you will have your name in the running to win a unmounted Postage Paper #5 stamp. And there's more, you could win a $30 gift certificate!!!

"This set is deeply etched unmounted red rubber images sized perfectly for Postage Paper style #5. This set is part of a coordinated line that includes Postage Paper and Templates, however each component can be used alone. This set comes with all the images printed on Crack & Peel sticker paper, for easy indexing. Actual Height 6 '' Width 7''." I put a picture of the stamp  below, so you could see it.

The winner will be announced on the 100 Proof Press blog in one week on September 20th . All you need to do is to visit and leave a comment on all the design team's 100 Proof Press Blog Hop posts. Here's their links: Jennifer Ingle, Tracy Evans, Gladys Chia, Sara Vukson, Amy Tsuruta, Gerri Herbst (just leave it a comment on this post), Alexa Lett and Nicole Eccles.

If you haven't visited 100 Proof Press in awhile, you really must! The website has been updated by Sara Vukson "our illustrious leader", with everything you need to know and see about her wonderful company. There's the shop- where you can buy from the enormous number of rubber stamps over 3,000of them; the blog- where you can find out what's happening and even a gallery-where you can submit your work. It is such a fun and inspiring place.

In honor of this hop, I created a card using the wonderful Animal mask stamp. After stamping them out,  I fussy cut out the two birds and colored them with markers. I put the masks on some Renaissance Dancer figures I had. They are layered on two vine covered paper that I added some rick rack trim too. Of course  I added lots of Stickles glitter, big red jewels and sparkly red tulle. The hand cut text says "I'll dance with thee alone, I'll never leave thy side" which completed this piece. I'm including a picture of the stamp below too.

So this week dance, skip, run or Hop to the other 100 Proof Press Design Team members blogs
and maybe you will be the lucky winner!
take care, gerri
