November Blog Hop Competition.

This will be our last Blog Hop for the year. Our next Blog Hop Competition will be in the last week of January 2018. It starts Monday 22nd and ends at midnight on Friday 26th. Keep an eye out for it as will feature one of the new release stamps in the Stampendous January 2018 catalogue.

This month I chose a non Christmas stamp set. This set is from the October catalogue which features stamps for Valentines as well as Easter and is adorable.

SSC1269 Frog Yoga Perfectly Clear Stamp Set
All you have to do to win this set is leave a comment on one or all of our blogs. It is a random draw so if you leave a comment on one blog you get one chance to win. If you leave a comment on all the designers blogs you have four chances of winning. Only one comment per blog though. The competition ends at midnight Friday night and will be drawn Saturday morning. Let me know if you are an Aussie though as this competition is open to Australian residents only.

These are my card designs......

Here are the links to our designers blogs.

Good luck everyone.

Owls stamp and die set

Owls are always popular and this set is so cute. The images are smaller than previous owls from Stampendous which just makes them more versatile. I will be teaching a class at Scrapping with Style at T.J's in Logan Central in two weeks time. These are the cards I will be teaching.

This is the stamp and die set.

As promised here are the cards my class made.

Lyn's card.

Terry's card

Grace's card

Glenda's card

Even though this group often uses the same stamps in class all their cards end up looking very different from each other. Well done class!

September Blog Hop Competition

I think my design team are threatening severe repercussions after this month. LOL.

I gave them this stamp

CRR248 Owl Clock
and asked them to turn it into a Christmas card!

It was all right for me, I already had an idea of what the card could look like before I sent it out.
This is what I came up with.

I stamped it onto cream cardstock with Burnt Sienna Palette Hybrid ink. I used a combination of Chameleon markers and Chameleon pencils to colour the design. I cut the clock face out and glued an acrylic sheet behind it. On a separate piece of white card I stamped the image again with black ink. I then positioned the clock face behind the acrylic panel.
I used another Christmas stamp behind the image after the owl and clock had been masked.
Stampendous' new Twinkle Glitter was applied around the clock with a bead of craft glue. To finish it off I added some red self adhesive pearl gems.

I hand drew the tree parts Then added the coloured and cut out owl. I used the ornament from the CRP306 Pine Ornaments stamp. A few coloured pearls and some twinkle glitter and another Christmas card is born.

Check out what the talented designers have come up with.......




All you have to do to enter the competition is leave a comment on one or all of the design teams blogs. Each comment is an entry for a total of four entries, one on each blog. Please indicate what state you are from as this competition is open to Australian residents only.

If you own this stamp and would like to join in the fun, I will post your card here on my blog after the competition closes. I will also post pictures of my classes cards at the same time.

July Blog Hop competition now on

 Just a reminder of what you can win this month on our Blog Hop Competition.....

The pack includes-

  •  Two Stampendous stamps
  • Two Dreamweaver Die sets
  • Two packs of adhesive rhinestones
  • Two speciality embossing powders
  • One jar of the new 'Twinkle Glitter'
To enter the competition all you have to do is leave a comment on one or all of the designers blogs. One comment equals one entry. Only one comment per blog please. It would be great if you could indicate which state you live in as this competition is open to Australian residents only.

I would like to thank Dot Leathbridge from Ink Art Designs for her past contributions as one of our designers. She has taken on a new venture and can no longer participate. Our new design team member is Tracy Moloney from Victoria. Tracy is a past blog hop competition winner and she assures me she is thrilled to be asked to join us. Well we are thrilled that she said 'yes'. Just click on a designers name and you will be taken to that persons blog. Good luck to all.

Here are my cards using the lovely stamp CRP306 Pine Ornaments that is the focus for this months Blog Hop Competition.

 I used silver Tinsel glitter embossing powder for the design and white detail embossing powder for the sentiment which is CRM326 Christmas Love

I used Chameleon markers, Palette Hybrid ink and macro glitter for this card. You can't see the dimension on the two glitter baubles but thay are quite raised as I added the glitter over Dimensional magic.

I borrowed this idea from the Stampendous catalogue. I have pressed the stamp into molten Chunky Gold Embossing Enamel. I rubbed some black wax into the grooves to deepen the image but I could have inked up my stamp with black in had I thought of it.

This idea was given to me by a customer. It is resist with Pixie Powders over the top.Thanks Barbara.
