Do you recall that I took part in the 30 Days of Creativity challenge on Instagram during December sponsored by Pretty Paper Studio?

Since the challenge was from December 1-30, most of my daily cards were Christmas or winter flavored. I shared several of them on some of my December blog posts. 

At the end of the challenge, Pretty Paper Studio had a drawing for a prize package. I WAS THE WINNER! Lucky lucky me! The prize consisted of a large Seth Apter rubber stamp, a TCW stencil and a Spellbinders die set. It was so exciting when this package finally arrived in the mail, all the way from Dubai!

I haven't yet tried the stencil, but really look forward to featuring it in some of my mixed media work. I used a scrap of paper to quickly run with the Spellbinders die, so I know what that looks like cut out: AWESOME! But, immediately intrigued by the card-sized stamp, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with THAT!

Do you see the cool scribbly background on this card? That's the stamp! Having stamped it in Melon Mambo, I decided to go ahead and make a Valentine.

Instead of randomly grabbing one of the Project Life cards, I deliberately searched through them for one that would be appropriate using the scribbly background. The small card with multiple colored hearts was completely suitable for my purposes.

For the stamped heart, I used stamps from the January Paper Pumpkin kit.

I can say that I will use that stamp A LOT for sure! Thanks so much, Pretty Paper Studio, for the awesome prize package!
