A Surprise – you’ve gotta be in it to win it :)

Afternoon all

As promised, I have a little surprise for you, more about that later…..

I couldn’t sleep last night, so in the wee dark hours I got my Strawberry Kisses stuff out and made a card 🙂

This one is using one of new Card Mate’s, which are a little like card companion’s but A5 with a space to stamp your image 🙂

I love these designs, There so me, when putting this range together I have indulged myself a little I am afraid.  I’ve also used a sheet of the flowers from the CD and stamped the Birthday Kitten Image which I have coloured with Spectrum Noir pens.

I’ve matted and layered with some core’dinations card which I think has provided the perfect base for the card mate (Hint hint as to my surprise – keep reading)

I’ve coloured the Birthday Kitten with Spectrum Noir Pens, which can be found on the Crafter’s Companion Website.  I’ve printed the Card Mate onto Neenah Card, because I wanted to colour in the stamped image with my Speccies!  Neenah is a really good medium tp print on actually because it’s very smooth you get a stunning result and fabulous colour representation.

You can see the stamped and coloured Kitty a little closer in this image

I cut out an layered one of the flowers printed from the CD again, and finished it off in the centre with a little ribbon and a button.

OK – now for my SURPRISE – I hope you are following the Inspiration Blog Hop over on the Crafter’s Companion Blog.  Where you are in with a chance to win the CD and stamps, winner announced tomorrow.

Well, I have a pad of Core’dination’s SO MOD to ……… GIVE AWAY! …….. I know I’ve lost the plot, I should be hanging on to it by my finger nails, but it’s so perfect to go with the Strawberry Kisses Range I wanted to give you the opportunity to win it 🙂

All you have to do, is, leave a comment on this post telling me which of the stamps from the new range is your favourite and why, and then leave me a link to either your blog or Facebook page, or what ever you have…. where you have linked to this post and explained that I have a competition to win a pad of Core’dination’s SO MOD, and link to my post here.  It’s worth 29.99 so it’s well worth winning 🙂

I will draw the winner tomorrow evening before I set off to the studio’s and announce it on my blog.

Let’s see how many comments we can get. GOOD LUCK.

  1. Hi Leanne, What a fantastic generous give away, thanks for giving us the chance to win. I love the image that you have used for this gorgeous card but I think my favorite is still the party animal one with the cat asleep in the shoe. I have posted a heads up about your giveaway on both my wordpress blog and my blogger blog to let people know about it.

  2. Beautiful card Leann, another fantastic range but I wouldn’t expect anything less from Crafters Companion, can’t wait to see the launch show, already thinking of things I could make with this range.

  3. Of the ones I’ve seen i want them all as so difficult 2 choose between + only have just 1 favourite xxx

  4. Leann your card is stunning the colours are great and it’s soooooo sweet.
    I am afraid I haven’t got a favorite I love them all and can’t wait to get my mitts on them.

    Hugs Julie x

  5. You are spoiling us Leann not only with your lovely pics of samples but the cance to win some core’ dination’s too. A fantastic set of stamps can’t wait to buy them and the cd. My favourite from the images I have seen has got to be the puppy in the shoe just because he looks so cute and cuddly

  6. Hi Leann,
    Thanks for the opportunity, as to my favourite, which ever one I’m looking at is my favourite, so it’s the Birthday Cat card!

  7. What a fab give away Ooooooo…They are just all so cute but would have to say my fav is the kitten in the shoe because it means I could have the shoe in all the colours, wish my real shoe collection could come in all the colours of my pens :)……

  8. Hi Leann. This is a simply beautiful card. Thanks to you, Sara and the CC Design Team for all the sneak peeks! You are a complete star … treating us via CC with the opportunity to win the CD and stamps, and now treating one lucky person to a pad of Core’dinations to boot! My favourite stamp has to be “Party Animal”, because I’d like that to be me after a night on the tiles … although, knowing my luck, it’s more likely to be me missing a night out because I’m tired!!!!!!! Hugs, Helen x
