MMW#5 : Stencils


We are back and we're back with a bang! I'm so excited right now! We have a new winner and runners up, we have some big news to share, a guest designer to welcome and a fabulous variety of GD makes for our new challenge! Make a cuppa, this is gonna be good!! :) 

I think I'll start with our new winner of the Masculine/Father's Day challenge... 


Fab 3: 

CONGRATULATIONS to you all! Please could the winner email me to ingridscraftscorner (@) uk and please grab the relevant badges for your blog. Display them with pride, you soooo deserve them! We didn't have as many entries as masculine theme is never the easiest, but the quality of entries was amazing! It was sooo hard to choose! You guys rock! 

I had a few personal favourites... 

I could seriously go on... I'll be pinning the lot to our Designers' Favourites board! Thank you all so much for playing along with us! We have a new challenge in store for you and an exciting one it is. The next challenge is all about 'Stencils' and is chosen by our lovely Georgie. She'd like to see you make a stencil a star of your project or you can use a few and layer this easy and fun? 

Well, I am going to excite you a little more by telling you why our post is delayed by a day and what our prize is... 

Today is a very special day for our new fabulous sponsor That's Crafty! 

That's Crafty!

Today is a launch of their sweet mini stencils and we feel very fortunate that we could team up with That's Crafty! and celebrate this special day with them. Yay!! You see where this is going... ? Of course! The prize for our winner is going to be donated by That's Crafty and what else could the winner possibly get than... 10 of their newly released stencils!!! Whooohooo...! 

Winner's prize: 10 stencils by That's Crafty!

Thank you, That's Crafty!, we are so honoured and grateful for your sponsorship and are excited to be sharing this with all the crafty souls out there! 

Excited? Good! Now, keep reading, because I have a very special person joining us today and that is the lovely...

I’ve never liked writing bio’s, as I really don’t feel like there’s much to say but the basics are; that I started cardmaking in February 2004 and was hooked in an instant. I love to work with stamps and inks to create clean and simple cards but now and again, I like to play with paints and do more mixed media pieces. I’ve been very fortunate, in the fact that I’ve been published in UK and US publications since 2006. And that’s it really.

Paula has kindly agreed to join us as a Guest Designer and is here to share her gorgeous make... 

How amazing is this altered book cover! I think you will agree with me when I say Paula is one very talented lady! Thank you for inspiring us, Paula, and for joining us here today! x

Now onto the fabulous MMW Design Team and their gorgeous inspirational makes... 


...and Yulianna who is joining us as a Designer for MMW for the first time and, oh my, am I glad she has!!! Loooook... 

I have more pics of this beauty from Yulianna, but I won't share.. no, I won't! You will simply have to visit her blog.. you will be so impressed, if you do! She's amazing! 

What a gorgeous line up from the Design Team, right?! I can't stop looking at all these makes. I hope you will feel as inspired and come and link up your make for our new challenge 'Stencils' for your chance to win 10 fantastic stencils by That's Crafty! 

We shall look forward to your comments and seeing your stenciled masterpieces! Until then, have a wonderful time!
