Welcome to Freebie Friday and the official countdown to Stamp It! Week. Since our special issue Stamp It! Cards just went on sale, we thought it would be fun to dedicate a whole week (March 16-20) to the wonderful world of stamping.

Not only will we being having a ton of fun here, but we’re partnering with creative editor Cath Edvalson and her Moxie Fab World blog. Both sites will be doing daily giveaways, as well as offering great stamping tips and techniques for every skill level.

Next week on Paper Crafts Connection:

Magazine Monday – Designer spotlight on stamping queen Teri Anderson. She’ll tell you why she loves stamping so much and even give away an original stamped card set to one lucky winner.

Tuesday – Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Associate editor Susan Opel will admit a BIG stamping confession here, but she’ll also give away a fabulous green-themed prize package! Go Irish!

With the Pros WednesdayPaper Crafts Pro Alisa Bangerter will show off one of her amazing cards from Stamp It! Cards, as well as offer great tips for working with dye ink sprays. And there will be three fun prize packages up for grabs courtesy of Tattered Angels!

Thursday – Managing editor Brandy Jesperson will spotlight some of the cool projects from our Stamp It! Cards feature “Stamp It! 3 Ways”. And you guessed it – she’ll be giving away something stampy!

Freebie Friday – Since this day is synonymous with free prizes, you’ll definitely want to check back for the crème-de-la-crème of all stamping prizes. Word on the street is you ladies will go nuts for it!

And if that weren’t enough, we’re starting this party with a little online contest. The Stamp It! Week Challenge officially begins right now! To play, create a stamped card featuring one of the following techniques:

Stamp Kissing

Upload your stamped card here from now until Monday, March 23. We’ll pick 10 winners (two per category) to win a fabulous prize package. Five winners’ cards will be shown on this blog and five will be shown on Moxie Fab World. AND once you upload your card, you can turn around and mail it into our Stamping Royalty card contest! How’s that for a win-win?!

So, as you can see, we have a lot going on for Stamp It! Week. We hope you come back for what promises to be a stamp-a-licious good time!

P.S. To win a copy of Stamp It! Cards, as well as my stamped butterfly card (seen below), please leave a comment telling me why you love stamping so much.

Even I have been bitten by the stamping bug! Heres a card I created for my monthly card group. I ended up tracing the stamped butterfly image with a glitter pen to give the wings a little extra shimmer.
