Stamp-a-faire + Iconic Images

Hi everyone. As you read this, the Papertrey Stamp-a-faire event in Cincinnati will just be getting underway. I'm so excited to see those of you that will be attending. For those of you that couldn't make it, there's plenty of excitement for you too. There will be several give aways and challenges over at Nichole's blog throughout the day so check back often. I'll try to do a few Twitter updates too so be sure to sign up to follow me if you want to check out my tweets. (Why does that sound naughty? LOL!)

So I'm sure you guys are dying to see the freebie set given away during Stamp-a-faire, right? That's right, everyone who places an order between 9am EST July 23rd (today) and 11:59 EST July 24th will receive a free stamp set! The set is called Iconic Images and each of the Design Team members has a peek of the set on their blog today.

For my project, I went for a soft and serene look.
Using the pretty vase and 2 step bunch of flowers, I created a pretty focal image using the rock and roll technique. Simply ink your stamp in one color and roll the edges of that inked stamp in another color. Stamp the image onto cardstock for a muted, rustic look.
I used the same technique for some smaller images included in Iconic Images on a stitched cardstock strip. Silk ribbon and tied Vintage Buttons add extra embellishments on the card.
On the bottom of my card I used more of the little emblem images from Iconic Images on a die cut strip of Kraft cardstock. So soft and pretty when stamped with Fresh Snow ink.
If you like what you see so far be sure to check Nichole's blog today. Iconic Images will be included in the list of prizes being given away. :) And be sure to check other the other Design Team blogs for more peeks:
