This is the featured stamp and die set and therefore prize.

CLD09 Seated Elf
I have already shared this picture with you but I will again as that will keep me honest and force me to do something different.

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.

Class cards using the Owl Clock stamp

As promised here are the cards my class made.

Lyn's card.

Terry's card

Grace's card

Glenda's card

Sue'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!

Happy crafting,

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.

Happy crafting,
