Challenge #33 ~ '3D' Sponsored by BOOTIFUL STAMPZ

Thank you to everyone who joined in with our 'Open Theme' Challenge and I am sorry that there is no sampler of last weeks entries.

The winner of the fabby Laura Ashley prize who has been randomly selected is Jane Carroll Congratulations please let us have your address :)

This week the challenge is '3D' ~ Thank you to Jane who suggested that great theme. Keep the suggestions coming in everyone as Arty Girlz intends to be around for a long time ;)

Our sponsors this week are and you could win this great prize

Here's some info from Sally from Bootiful Stampz:-

I have been selling craft supplies online for a number of years now under Auntysally’s Cards n Craft, which over the years changed to just Aunty’ s Store, but one of my first loves is drawing and at school I wanted to become a cartoonist, I use to doodle for hours and design my own characters and also my own papers, but back then the emphasis was getting a “proper job” as my parents called it! So I went down the clerical route and until I had my son, almost 9 years ago now, worked as a Technical Secretary for a well known house builder, after which I wanted to be a full time mum and after 4 more children that is what I am, as well as running the store I also run Aunty’s forum.

Recently I picked up my pens again and started doodling my characters, my bunny was born a couple of years ago and I had him made into a die, I then decided earlier this year to get him made into a stamp, so far there are 10 Bunny Stampz. So then I needed a name for my stamps so came up with Bootiful Stampz, which is a play on my surname “Booth”. More recently I have designed Maggie, who I love to bits and really enjoy thinking up different designs for her, there are currently 28 Maggie stamps and a further 14 about to be released! My 4 year old daughter decided to call her Maggie after a little friend she had at nursery was called Maggie.

My stamps are all hand-drawn by myself and then manufactured in the UK by Tanda Stamps – they are then sent back to me and each one is packaged up by myself. I really believe in the personal touch and all stamps that are purchased are wrapped up like a little present! I always aim to deliver them as quickly as possible, because I know from experience that when I have purchased something I want it to be delivered really quickly!!

I hope you like my Bootiful Stampz

Sally is offering a 10% Discount off everything in her store including the stamps ~ just put AG10 in the discount code box on checkout of the shop!

We were lucky to receive the same stamps as the prize to use in our examples this week ~ Here's what we did :)

Great challenge, I've just discovered this blog and it's FAB!
I just happened to have made a 3D card very recently. Will try to put up the link to my entry (not sure how!)... It's on my blog. Hope it's OK!
(haven't found the 'proper' way for creating a direct link to my blog, so you'll have to cut and paste!)

Christel said...

OK, since my last post, I went on a crash course on "How to use Blogspot" (Thanks Jules!) and here is an easier way to see my entry:
