The Stamp Man 3rd annual awards

Hi there, well Christmas is well and truly over, the decorations have been put away and the fridge is cleared off leftovers lol. Before looking forward to 2012, the team at The Stamp Man are encouraging us to look back over the past year and pick our best/favourite craft project of the year! What a great challenge and a good excuse to sit in front of the TV with the lappy and a box of After 8s lol (not that I need an excuse to eat chocolate )

After a wander around looking at all the projects I've made in the last year I think my favourite is this one, a little canvas called 'Fairy Door'. I really enjoyed making it as it gave me chance to mess around with paint and glitter and also to use one of my all time favourite stamps, the gorgeous unicorn from Chocolate Baroque. You can see the original post here

It was hard to choose and I thought I'd share a couple more of my favourite projects, this little canvas was created for our first challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and uses some more of my favourite stamps (the original post is here)

Lastly, I really enjoyed making this one, I love mail art and got so carried away making these faux stamps, again using stamps from Chocolate Baroque. You can find out more in the original post here

Thanks for taking a walk down memory lane with me. I'm back at work tomorrow so although I'm not the happiest bunny in the world its always nice to catch up with friends and have a good old gossip :-) Here's to another year of crafting

  1. Claire, you've chosen three wonderful pieces of art.So many wonderful details on them. Love the pink canvas and the butterflies on the second one are fantastic. Also your mail art piece looks great.

  2. I absolutely love that project that you are submitting & that final Mail Art card is quite something too. I love seeing the variety amongst your creations. I shall have to investigate Fashionable Stamping Challenges a little further too.

  8. It's so hard to just pick one project isn't it so I'm really glad you shared a few with us, Claire. Your fairy canvas is beautiful, what a treasure to keep. I have a DD who would adore this, she's fairy mad!!
    Thanks so much for sharing them with us at The Stampman.
