Freebie Friday – Countdown to Stamp It! Techniques Week

Kelly headshot1 Freebie Friday   Countdown to Stamp It! Techniques Week

P. Kelly Smith

Welcome to Freebie Friday! How many of you like to stamp? I assume most of you are enthusiastically nodding your heads. Now how many of you would like to break out of your comfortable stamping routine and try something new, something adventurous or dare I say…something even a little bit scary?

If you’re still nodding, then you must join us for Stamp It! Techniques Week!

Next week, we’ll be spotlighting our latest special issue, Stamp It! Techniques. Divided into six fun sections, it features six hot techniques: masking, embossing, paper piecing, spectrum stamping and creative ways to use markers and spray inks.

Our exciting promotion will begin on Monday on the Moxie Fab World blog. Then on Wednesday, Betsy Veldman will kick things off right here with her Groovin’ with the Go-to Gals post. Between the two sites, we’ll be spotlighting projects, hosting some fun technique challenges and giving away some spectacular stamping prizes!
