I have had this set in stock for a good while and had never used it but it suits this range of stamps beautifully. I hope it stays in stock as I have sold out of stock as soon as I showed it to my customers. Luckily it doesn't take more than a couple of weeks to get my orders filled thanks to Ronnie and the staff at Stampendous.

Happy crafting,

Blog Competition

Here are my cards using Whisper Wall stamp from the 'Pink Your Life' collection from Stampendous.

I used Chameleon markers on both of these cards. The difference is (and it's a shame you can't see this very well) I shaped all the fairies on the top card from behind so they are slightly puffed up. Both of them have clear star glitter gel pen on their wings.

 Here are the links to our designers bogs.

 If you leave a comment on any of our designers blogs it equates to one entry in the competition but please remember that only one comment per blog will count. It would also be helpful if you could tell us which town you live in so that we don't accidentally include people from outside Australia.

Happy crafting and good luck,

I am back from CHA

I have great news! My friend Donna has decided to join our Blog Hop Competition as a designer. Donna and I have known each other for about 12 years. We both belonged to a card swap group for a couple of years before Ian and I decided to attend our first CHA trade show. Donna asked us to come and stay with her and her husband in San Diego after CHA, which we gladly accepted. Donna had attended CHA in previous years but didn't go that year, so Ian and I caught a train and spent about a week with her and Dick. I have been going to see them just about every year since then. Usually Donna meets me at our accommodation and after the show we go back to her home. Donna says I owe her about 6 months of reciprocal accommodation when they finally come here, LOL.We usually spend most of our time making cards. This year was no exception and I got a lot of work done which will start to appear here shortly.
Donnas style is unique and she was 'stitching' around her cards well before anyone else started doing it. She prefers whimsical images but is up for the challenge of creating a card using an Andy Skinner stamp set later in the year. Dot's style is more suited to Andy Skinners stamps but will be equally as challenged as Donna with this months stamp. I think Robyn is more 'pretty' (after having spoken to her she says she is more arty, colourful and inky) in her approach to making cards and I am more eclectic in style. All in all, I think we have a great mix in our team and I am excited to see what we all create each month with the featured stamps.

Our feature stamp this month is-

PLCP008 Whisper Wall Cling Rubber Stamp
 This months competition will run from Monday the 20th to Friday 25th February. Remember, one comment is one entry. Only one comment per blog and you must be an Australian resident.

Good luck,
