Reminder #90

Hello There,

We are here to remind you that there is still time to join in our current challenge:

Autumn with the optional twist of Speed Stamping


We are defining speed stamping as making your card in 10 mins or less. This excludes the time you need to plan the design and get all your products ready to make the card.

So get all your cardstock, dies, inks etc ready before you start the clock!

This speed stamping is optional and purely just for fun. We would love you to tell us how long it took you to make your card. We have a prize for all those who choose to speed stamp but this will not be for the fastest just chosen randomly from those who just have a go!


Our prize is a $15 gift voucher from our superb sponsors Happy Little Stamper

Happy Little Stampers

Our very creative Guest Designer, Elaine, is joining us again this week and she has been speed stamping!

Now some inspiration from Elaine and the DT-you will see those of the team who used speed stamping have let you know how long it took them to make their cards!
