""A month ago we sent out to the participants 3 mystery items (actually it was more for this round). The #3Upsters had to somehow utilise those items to create a project to share with you tonight. The goodie baggies were allocated randomly as people signed up and registered, so no thought was given to the preferred stamping style of each 3UP-ster. Some people were totally in their element with what they received, and others were well out of their comfort zone, like I mean on another planet! However, this is a challenge, and so challenge you we shall!
However, this round the differences were:
1. Every player got a colour swatch to work to
2. Every player was part of a team (they didn't realise this)
3. Each team worked with stamps from a PaperArtsy Collection released in last 10 years
I was one of the "lucky" ones to be out of my comfort zone and to be honest what with a busy month being on the design team, I left making my project until 2 days before it had to be sent in! Panic definitely concentrates the mind. This was my package . Apart from the stamps, it included a large piece of stampbord, a wooden frame, colour swatch, twill tape, smoothy stamping card and some cotton reels
After much faffing around and stamping of images, I came up with a new address plaque. Here's the front:
...and here's the back.
If you want a better idea of how I put this together, there are more detailed instructions here.
I must admit, that I am very unlikely to use these stamps again so if anyone is very taken with them, leave a comment here and I will do a draw in a week's time and send them out to the winner.
