The Stamp Man Award for proudly presenting
my best craft project of the year 2010
With blog hop, challenge and prizes!
We are doing something a little different for Challenge # 13. Last year we held our first awards event, the awards were for proudly presenting your best/favourite crafting project you feel you made during the year. We are going to hold it again this year but we are also linking it with our fortnightly Challenge.
We would like you to join in the challenge, which is to show us your best/favourite project of 2010. The award blinkie is just a nice random award for anyone that joins in. Display your award blinkie on your sidebar with a link back to this blog.
The most important part of this is that we would like you all to have fun and enjoy taking time to look back on your crafting over the last year.
We are also holding another blog hop! As you go through the blog hop you will see that the ladies on the design team have shared their favourite challenge projects with you too. Their cards are shown below as usual but visiting their blogs will give more details about their projects, also they will be giving you clues for a chance to win prizes!
For the challenge and the blog hop, prizes will be randomly picked and given to those that have completed the following
- Join in the actual challenge with your best/favourite project linked with Inlinkz as usual
- Take your award blinkie with pride and display it on your sidebar with a link back to here.
- Follow your way around the blog hop in the order you are given along the way, collect all the letters/code you will find on each blog. Write these down then work out the answer when the blog hop is finished.
- Leave a comment on ALL of the blogs you visit in the blog hop
- Post our event blinkie onto your blogs or a post about the event with your best/favourite project
- Email the answer to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 9pm (GMT) on Thursday 13th January 2011. Please put blog hop answer as the email title
If you get carried away looking through the work on the blogs you visit and run out of time to complete the hop that day, make a note of where you stop and start again another day. You have 2 weeks to complete the awards, challenge and the blog hop, so there is no rush to get to the end, enjoy the journey and admire the scenery along the way!
So, the blog hop starts here!
But first here are the prizes…
Cardmaker's Collection worth about £70, a general papercraft selection of stickers from 7 Gypsies, Doodlebug, rub ons, ribbon, and embellishments
Moonshadow Ink set of 6, with DVD. Create background effects like those shown in the photo with instruction from the DVD, worth £35
Set of 4 Stazon Opaque ink pads, worth over £30. The pads come with a reinker to ink up the pads. The best use for this pad is for vellum and acetate as it is a permanent ink for both surfaces.

Now for my favourite project this year, Ian’s birthday card, I really enjoyed making it! It is an 8" x 8" easel card, shown here closed.
I did write a very detailed technique tutorial for it if you are interested in reading all the details. It’s spread over a few posts, here’s the intro, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6 and the finished card
