Happy New Challenge!

It's the new year the February issue of CS is out on sale today, so it's time for a new challenge! YAY!

This challenge relates to Isa Norris' beautiful Vintage Valentine article and is called GET CREATIVE WITH CUTTLEBUG! The challenge is to have a go at Isa's gorgeous 'cuttle-wax' technique or you can use your Cuttlebug in combination with stamping supplies in other ways.

You could win this fab prize - three Cuttlebug folders plus two gorgeous new Crafty Individuals bird stamps (as used in the article) - which has been generously donated by the wonderful folks at The Craft Barn. The Craft Barn website is now fully operational and they are a fabulously well-stocked store so do take a look!

Here's her lovely card - thank you to everyone who played along. I hope you had fun!

I hope everyone had a happy and relaxing Christmas - I certainly did. Here's to a creative and crafty 2009.

Other content linked from the mag will be posted in the next few days for you.

  1. Congratulations Wendy - I was so keen to join in with this but was too ill over Christmas to get round to it. Hopefully will be able to join in the next challenge as I do think linking challenges with the mag is a fantastic idea.

  4. I am a subscriber to Craft Stamper but have to rely on my mum to forward my copy and she's not very errr reliable to get it in the post ( even though I bought her a subscription too so she wouldn t hog mine !! )Hope I get it in time to enter this challenge !!
    Oh, would like to add I am a customer of the craft barn and have been there a few times both in person and online, fab shop, so happy it re opened :-)

  5. Hi, my magazine arrived at last :-) This was a real challenge for me as living on such a small island I don't have access to good craft shops. I had to make my own wax paper :-) Anyway, I love the effect this technique has and will definately be using this again.

  6. Just spotted this challenge so thought I'd show you my piece, not used the technique Isa used but it is done with the Cuttlebug.

  7. I have made some ATCs using my Cuttlebug- not the Cuttle-wax, I'm afraid, but using metal. Hope you like it!
