Take It Make It Challenge: Winners Profile


Welcome to our Winners Profile, showcasing the Design Winner of our last Blog Challenge!

The very talented Design Winner of our March 2018 challenge is:

Sue Blamey

Sue won the challenge with this beautiful card. We loved the wonderful effect Sue managed to achieve with the butterflies, such a gorgeous blast of colour!

We asked Sue a few questions all about stamping (well, we are Craft Stamper after all!)

Q: How long have you been a stamper, and how did you get started?

A: I was at a craft fair and saw someone demonstrating using a rubber stamp, putting on embossing powder and then heating it. It was revolutionary at the time and got me interested. I have been stamping off and on for about 20 years but have more time since giving up full-time work.

Q: What are your favourite kinds of stamps, and do you have a favourite stamp company?
A: My favourite stamps are flowers. I do love flowers being a keen gardener also. Favourite stamp company? Probably Altenew as their flower stamps are lovely, also Simon Says Stamp and Penny Black stamps.


Q: Describe your style, are you a messy kind of stamper or a more ‘clean and simple’ kind of person?

A: Definitely 'clean and simple' but I do enjoy experimenting with different media and techniques, for example, alcohol inks, water-colours and incorporating those into CAS cards.

Q:What kind of projects do you like creating the most?

A: Cards are my favourite kind of project at the moment as I enjoy making them to join in with card challenges and of course they can be sent to friends and family.

Q: Apart from stamps, what is the one product you wouldn’t be without when you craft?

A: My Sizzix Big Shot as I enjoy incorporating die-cuts in my card-making.

We also asked Sue to show us some of her favourite stamped creations,  and share why she likes them so much. Here are the gorgeous projects she has chosen:

"I chose these three because they reflect my love of flowers and watercolour, with a clean and simple layout" -Sue
