More Love, Hearts and Flowers

Morning Peeps, popping in with some mid month inspiration following our 'Love, Hearts and Flowers' theme we are looking for a romantic edge to your artwork. 

Some beautiful entries so far although one or two have forgotten the romantic element which sadly means they won't be in the running for the prizes so please do remember to check the challenge requirements before adding your entry.

The challenge runs until 28th February so there is still plenty of time to join in.

Here are the creations from the talented Design Team.......................

February - Love, Hearts and Flowers

Good morning, it's time for our February challenge and we thought we would go with a theme that can be about Valentines, Weddings, romance and beautiful flowers........

******Love, Hearts and/or Flowers******

There are so many beautiful stamps that fit this theme be they love, hearts or just beautiful flowers but whichever you choose we must see a romantic element.

As always you can use any make of stamp and enter up to three times, but we must see hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork, this means:

Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest

The one exception is Penny Black Stickeroos, but strictly no digi images. 

Penny Black invite you to explore their creative world and see for yourself why their rubber stamps, stickers, beautiful papers for scrapbooking, cardmaking and stamp crafting are everyone’s favourites. Their products are designed to integrate style and colour for creating the best handicraft projects ever.

So to follow the flow of the theme.........Love, Hearts and Flowers, three gorgeous prizes...............


Crafts U Love  was formed in 2001 by Paul Baughton and Jenny Baughton. They are one of the largest stockist in the UK of die cutting and rubber stamp products as well as a wide range of general card making and scrapbooking products. The winner will receive a £15 store voucher.

Little Claire is a team of 3 consisting of Gill (Little Claire) Steve and Carol (long suffering member of staff/friend/all round good egg – but not a beautiful as Gill!). Necessity is the mother of invention’ this is the saying that sums up the creation of Little Claire Designs – we love stamps and what better way to satisfy the stamping ‘urge’ than to create our own designs exactly as we want them! Two really sweet stamps to be won.

Our Guest first Guest Designerer Diane has made this adorable card for us......................
