Featuring our MasterCrafter!

If you read all about our Stamp Camp adventures, you may recall we spent the weekend discovering who our Top MasterCrafter was. Amanda was our winner, and part of her prize was a guest appearance on my Blog (the closest thing to a book deal I could manage LOL)

The time has come for you to all see how clever Amanda is! You can see her clever fabric creations over on her blog Nanny Kate Design.
And here are the creations that earnt her the MasterCrafter title.
This was Amanda's Mystery Box creation. The colours and Sweet Treat Cup were in the Mystery Box. Such a pretty card, and a clever use of the Sweet Treat Cups too!

This is how the card opens:

And here is a close-up of the flower detail:

Next is Amanda's Invention Test. A very clever take on the provided Sketch, turning it into a little Christmas gift bag using Sweet Slumber DSP and the Fancy Favour Box Die in the Big Shot:
I love these colours for Christmas, and I would never have thought to use them!

Since Amanda was voted into the Top Two, she had to face the Pressure Test and re-create a Teneale Williams original card in only 25 minutes.

Here she is, frantically stamping (can you feel the tension in the air?)

Receiving some welcome tips from Kerry:

And trying to remember how to use a Stampin' Scrub:

Both Amanda and Kari did a fabulous job of re-creating Teneale's masterpiece, but Amanda was voted our winner. Here she is, gracefully accepting her award:

And can you believe, neither Kari or Amanda are Stampin' Up! Demonstrators?? ....yet!!


  1. I am so very proud of my Amanda - she is a superstar - I do like the "not demonstrators yet" comment - I am working on her!!!

  2. I thought both girls did such a great effort and agree both would be such wonderful demo's with their talents. Well done Amanda.

  3. Well Done Manda!
    I know the Teneale Williams card only took 25 mins, but sitting next to her while she was playing around with the card and the box, OMG....

    Gotta Love Ya Manda
