The Twinery & PSA Essentials Blog Hop







Today is the third day of The Twinery & PSA Essentials Blog Hop! If you’ve missed out on the first two days, you can get caught up on the PSA Stamp Camp blog. There is a ton to share, so let’s get started!

The blog hop is all week long, June 6 through June 10. During this time, The Twinery is offering 15% off any order! Just use coupon code PSAHOP15 at checkout. And The Letter Tree is offering 30% off all PSA Essentials products. No coupon code needed; the product is already marked down! But you need to hurry; both of these deals are good through June 10 only! And now on to my card for the hop:




I created this circus themed invitation by first stamping the little elephant from the PSA Little Bunny Peel & Stick pack. I placed him inside his cage - which is just a rectangle frame I created using classic rectangle dies from Spellbinders. I colored him with Copics and added the bars - which are pieces of Pink Sorbet twine. (This color is fast becoming my favorite!)

The balloons were created using a small classic oval die from Spellbinders. I added some fun pattern to them using the circular border stamp from Little Bunny. These tamps are more versatile than you would think! Lemondrop and Carribean twine finished the balloons off by adding a burst of color. Here's a closer look at some of the detail on the card:



Now, we all love a sale, but what we really love is free stuff! Here’s the details on how you can win some terrific product from PSA Essentials, The Letter Tree and The Twinery:


  • PSA Essentials is giving away one stamper, three Peel & Stick packs of the winner’s choice


  • The Letter Tree is giving away a monogrammed tote bag


  • The Twinery is giving away six spools of twine of the winner's choice ($84 value)


  • Dates of entry are Monday, June 6 at 12:01 AM EST to Sunday, June 12 at 11:59 PM EST

  • There are four super easy ways to enter the giveaway:



    1. Follow the PSA Stamp Camp Blog = 1 entry


    2. Follow The Twinery Blog = 1 entry

    4. Like The Twinery on Facebook = 1 entry

    The winner of this great giveaway will be chosen on June 13 and announced on Facebook on both The Twinery and PSA pages.


    Whew, that’s a lot to digest, I know, but it’s all worth it! Now make sure you stop by and visit Jessica Diedrich to see her project for the hop! This is one talented design team! Have fun and good luck everyone!
