Stempelglede Contest...


Gunhild Bay, the brains behind Stempelglede, is one of the most kind-hearted people you could wish to meet on Blogland, and I'm not just saying that because I want to win her card competition (although of course I DO want to win!), but because I have had dealings with her and I know this to be true. She is also extremely good-looking and talented. And so is every member of her DT. Extremely.

We-ell... Have you seen the stunning cards people are entering into this thing? I have to build my part somehow if I'm going to stand a chance! lol ;o)

These are the lovely images Gunhild provided for the colour palette...

The following notes refer to the card pictured in the post above.

I used stamps from the Stempelglede 'Grunge Collection' (the only Stempelglede stamps I own, currently), Antique Linen & Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks and Dark Brown Chalkeyes. Faux stitching on the white card, but REAL hand-stitching on the Nesties label. The gorgeous genuine vintage music paper is part of my blog candy prize from Lean (thank you again, Lean!! I love it!)

The punches I have used include Fiskars 'Threading Water' border punch, Kaleidopunch and Carlcraft snowflakes, Woodware holly leaves, Martha Stewart pine branches, and an SU circle punch.. one & three-eighths inches.. which fitted perfectly! A key, a rose, raffia, crocheted lace, glamour dust & gems and a heart charm, which says ' My Heart belongs to Daddy', and a computer-generated greeting complete the card.


  1. WAUWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW i am in love with your card sstttt don´t tell.Great JOB.

  15. Oh my goodness Chris! What a beautiful project.
    If God is in the detail then this is heaven Chuck!
    We all have our little talents but this is one genre I struggle with and wish I was better at. I do persevere though.
    One day I might produce stuff nearly as classy as this.

  16. You've done it again Chris - produced an absolutely exquisite piece of work that is! This is absolutely fabulous and the elements you have combined so cleverly look wonderful.

    Good luck with the competition.
