Who's up for a bit of #3UP LUCKY DIP? {Details of how to enter below...}

Good evening everyone

Leandra here to bring you news of a week of summer fun with a #3UP challenge! 

We haven't done a #3UP week for ages! But we have missed having you come to play on the blog!!

So.... at the start of the year we scheduled a #3UP week so you get to show us what you can do with our products! And even better, Emma and I have been having a bit of a clear-out, and we have found lots of ex-workshop and demo stamps, paints and more. Those who enter will be getting FREE goodies sent to you (that's the LUCKY DIP BIT) to incorporate into your entry artwork!!! Sounds fun right?! Read on... 

So how will it work? 

Over an 8 day week in July (we had to do 8 days to cover most of our PA stamp collections!) we will showcase 3 people's creativity each night....that's what #3UP means...3 people UP on the blog.... 

Each person will be sent 1, 2 or maybe even 3 stamp sets to work with FREE. 

Each night will also have a suggested colour 'medium'. Think paint, or ink, crayons or infusions....lots of options! You guys will have loads of that kind of product to hand already I am sure!

We have mashed up some of the stamp collections each night, meaning you also get to 'mash' them together on your project too. This opens up so many possibilities. 

So its going to be a wonderful #3UP LUCKY DIP WEEK!! 

You can incorporate PaperArtsy stencils and other stuff too, papers, etc if you want to... over the week its fun to showcase a huge variety of crafty goodness. So much inspiration will be generated for our wider blog family to enjoy.

This is the running order of the week planned for July. 
Sunday: ELB and EDY & Fresco paints {Autumnal colour palette}
Monday: Ink and the Dog originals, minis and vintage & PaperArtsy Infusions 
Tuesday: EKD, EEG, ECL & Fresco paints {Bright colour palette}
Wednesday: Urban Snapshots,  ESN & PaperArtsy Infusions
Thursday 6pm: JoFY & Inks (pads and sprays)
Thursday 7pm: Lynne Perrella & Infusions
Friday: EKC,EEV, EEB & Fresco paints {Pastel colour palette}
Saturday: Hot Picks & Crayons (neocolours, portfolios, slick stix, gelatos, distress crayons)
How do you get involved? 

1. Choose a night with products that play to your strengths. Then you will feel comfortable with the colour medium and style of stamps you end up using. 

2. Think how you might mash the collections together? You can't really do this in great detail until your goodie bag arrives. You can make any project that you like, 3D, flat, journalling, cards etc, if your name is drawn from the #3UP hat, we will of course check with you and your buddies for that blog post to make sure that we have three different projects each night for variety.

3. What will we need from you? For the blog post we will require 3 photographs, these must be large and clear, taken in daylight. One should be the finished project, one should be a step halfway showing a technique you like and the third photo should be a close up of your favourite or most interesting part. Each photo will need no more than 2 sentences of text. 

In the past we have had great interest, with more people wanting to take part than spaces available. So if this is something you would like to do then don't hang about, register now. 

Apply by email to Darcy { darcydotneedles@hotmail.com } Put 3UP in the title bar of the email so it doesn't get lost. 

Please include:
  • your full name 
  • postal address 
  • the name by which you wish to be known if it differs from your actual name for online privacy
  • your online social media links if you have any {twitter, FB, blog, youtube, instagram etc.} That way we can link our readers to you in the blog post. 
  • the 2 nights (as above) that you want to be considered for.
Closing date for applications is Sunday May 15th, 5pm

Successful applicants will be notified by email by Wednesday May 18th along with a document outlining more details. 

Lucky Dip items will be sent once you have confirmed your wish to participate.

Project photos and text must be submitted no later than June 19th 2016.

We hope lots of you will want to come and play, so get your thinking caps on and get in touch with us. 

Leandra and Darcy
