March Blog Hop Competition

It is that time again. 

Blog Hop Competition time!

The prize for this month is a stamp from the Laurel Burch Collection.


The competition finishes at 12am Friday night.

To enter, place a comment on one of our designers blogs. No need to make or buy anything. One comment equals one entry but only one entry per blog allowed. 
This is an ongoing monthly competition and open to Australian residents only. It would be helpful if in your comment you mention the name of city or town where you live.

Here are my inspiration pieces using the Flutterbye stamp.

I used one of the borders in the Elegant Borders Clear Stamp Set for the background. The butterfly was stamped with black Versafine ink then I used a Versamark pen to add clear ink to each section before heat embossing with different Vintage Tinsel embossing powders. All are Stampendous products of course. The sentiment is also from a clear stamp set. (see below)

The butterfly was stamped and heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder. It was then painted with pearlescent watercolour paints. I created the background with blue mica powder over clear embossing ink. I used Vintage Blue embossing powders in the corners and dots of metallic blue gel markers were added randomly to the background. Very pretty in real life.

Please take the time to look at our designers inspiration pieces using this stamp.




Good luck and happy crafting,

Laurel Burch designs.

These stamps are selling so well I am flat out keeping them in stock. I must admit I wondered how they would be received into the Australian market as they are so different to any of the other stamp ranges available from Stampendous. I needn't have all!

Here are some inspiration pieces.

Happy crafting,

Happy birds.

I love this new Happy Birds stamp set. I took my inspiration for this card from Donna Lane, who is my American sister by another mother, as well as part of our design team for our blog hop competition.

I coloured all the images with my Chameleon Markers. I just need more colours!

Happy crafting (and don't forget the blog hop competition next week!)
