Email me with your stamp choice and address to claim your prize!

As tough as it was to choose, we want to congratulate SANNAS! You are the winner of last week's FFF "About a Boy" Challenge. Check out this TOTALLY clever card:



LOVE it! We've seen poor Ian in a few "iffy" situations, but definitely not on America's Most Wanted, LOL! Awesome use of Skater and Cake Topper, Sannas! All topped off with a black and white color scheme which is great for a boy card. You rock!

Well, this week we have another fun sketch by Jess. Here it is:

Hi there,

Fab cards DT.

Longest stamping was probably when I firstgot the bug about 6 years ago. I spent most of the day playing - 10 hours!!!!(No children then!)

The longest time I've ever spent in one go......not counting the days on end where I come and go and do multiple projects at the same time.....would be about 7 hours. I was making little gift bags for my mum to give to her fellow nursing home residents for Easter this year and had the brilliant idea to use a bunny tag. Stamping and colouring with inks & paintbrushes (I had not yet discovered the wonder of Copics) was a long and arduous task...but I got there in the end. 40 Little choccie bags with bunny tags that were enjoyed by one and all. :)

Love the samples!! May just have a go at the sketch this week. We'll see. I'm gonna be taking some work home with me... :( .....that's my first priority this weekend unfortunately.

Hugs, SannaS

Longest time spent stamping... probably 3 hours or so when I was like 17 and raided my friend's moms SU stamps to make Christmas cards :) Thank god I didn't keep any, I can only imagine what they looked like!

~*Joni said...

Oh how fun! Ian is America's most wanted indeed. ;)

Great sketch Jessica! The DT lineup is soooo adorable, look at that adorable snowman, he makes me melt.

I know I've gone longer than this but a card took me 2 hours to figure out. I just couldn't get it right.ha!
Happy weekend to you all!

Maris said...

denean said...

no matter how long I have been crafting for, it is never enough!

Tanya said...

Love the wanted card!! The DT also did a great job creating something for this weeks challenge. I'm off to work on this sketch :)

As for this week's question, I don't usually look at the clock when I'm creating but I did take a day off from work not that long ago so that I can work at my table and take as long as I wanted before DH and DD came home---10 hours later! Hehe

Moni said...

Fab cards! I have spend around 6 hours crafting! Hugs,moni

Melissa Craig said...

Great sketch for the challenge.

Mrs Weyremaster said...

OMGosh i love that card, Wonderful work Sannas, so clever and dynamic, such a cool card, Congratulations :)

I usually spend a couple of hours stamping each day, but the longest i spent was a whole day stamping when i was making my wedding invitations, that was a long job, was worth it tho :)

Jenn Borjeson said...

I must say - I can't even be disappointed when I don't win the challenges, because the winning entries are always so super AWESOME!!!!! LOL The longest time I ever spent stamping? Geez, I have spent entire days stamping... as a matter of fact, last weekend I spent almost all day Saturday (World Card Making Day) and Sunday making cards!!! :o)

AShu93 said...

I don't have any idea how long I've stamped, but I do have to say how much I like the FFF card. It's just terrific!

Pam S. said...

hmmmm....I've never kept track! I usually stop and do something else and go back to it, several times a day! lol

Tina said...

Fabulous cards by the DT!

Probably the most I have spent, with no interuptions, was about 3-4.

Mary(OhioMary) said...

Fabulous Wanted card and such a great idea!

Look at all that wonderful DT inspiration. You girls rock!

The longest time I have spent stamping at a sitting is 6 hours. I had 3 projects due and stamping doesn't start until after DD goes to bed sooo I was up until 3am.

Annie said...

Congratulations to SANNAS! The card is awesome!!!! And you so deserved it! :)

WOW, such beautiful creations from the farmers too!

StampinCathy said...

Fabulous cards! I would have to say the longest time would be when I go to the workshops. It's usually 8 hours a day for 2 days. I stamp everyday and way to much if you ask my DH! LOL

Stephanie said...

Great cards and sketch this week! The longest time I've spent stamping is probably about 6 hours. It is so easy to lose track of time when you are doing something you love!

Jessica said...

Awesome projects!!

Probably the longest I spent stamping was a retreat where I stamped friday night and all day saturday with little sleep and a few breaks. So much fun though!

Carol said...

I am loving this sketch...it is just calling for one of the new digis!!

Longest time scrapping and stamping is at my yearly 3 day crop. We have stayed up til 5am, nap and b ack up! I can't wait, one month from today!

JenRaff said...

Fun and fantastic "Wanted" card! How clever!
I have no idea how much time I have spent stamping at one time. Maybe two hours? With kids, it's mostly interruption time.

itsabrt said...

Thee cards are all terrific and great thinking out of the box on the wanted card! The longest 10+ hours that's when my dh takes the kiddos camping or what not. Beth aka BR-T

margie c said...

OME! That is the perfect card! Ian is the most wanted stamp ;)
Great sketch! and lovely creations girlies!
6 hours! I sat for 6 hours until I noticed that I was starving and really needed a bathroom break, lol!

MiamiKel said...

24 hours!!!! A full 24 hours!! I went to an all day/night 24 crop and it was a total blast .... I came home and slept for 24 after, rofl!

Renie said...

The longest time for me woul be 5 or 6 hours......it was when I first got some copics and I was playing and trying to perfect certain blends and shades and follong a buch of turtorials.

Have a great weekend!

This N That said...

The longest time that I have spent stamping would have to be...hmmm...about 7 hours? With my best stampin buddy Toothy!

How clever! Poor Ian, but SO clever!

Tanya Rudd said...

I love the Wanted card! Nicely done. I think 5 hours was the most I spent stamping, at the Crop for a Cure event.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone,it is Thanksgiving weekend in Canada.

Tanya

Diana said...

Great sketch! The longest time I've spent stamping was 10 hours.

Jamie K said...

I loved that card when i saw it in the gallery yesterday. It was so original and ingenious.

Fabulous sketch and awesome cards by the DT-ers.

V said...

It had to be the year I made something insane like 100 Christmas cards. I think I stamped for two days straight. Thankfully, once was enough! :)

Tracy.H said...

Wow! These are all amazing! Can't wait to play with this sketch.

The longest I ever stamped at one time? I did a crop event with some stampin freinds lastyear. The saturday we went from 10AM until 10pm that day. Of course there was more chatting than actually stamping I'm sure, but you know. ;0)

Monkichi said...

hahha!! Sannas's card is awesome! :)

*Alison* said...

I have spent an entire day once stamping.. from 9am til 7pm.. I was TIRED.. and didn't look at another stamp for a few weeks..lol :)

LOVE the DT cards.. hugs

Krista said...

I guess the longest I spent was about 8 hours during a crop. Love this week's sketch.

PatsyB said...

This is embarrassing but I once spent ALL night long stamping since I had put off making Valentine cards for my son's class!! He had to have them for the next morning's party!! Needless to say, they were very simple! Did I learn my lesson? NO!! I still procrasintate! Love your cards! Thanks for inspiring us all!

Steph Zerbe said...

So much inspiration here!!

Before bebe, I could spend all day in my scraproom. I listen to the 80s channel and just loose myself in the music, memories and stamps! Maybe 8 or 9 hours!! Just as long as any work day! Those were the best days and they'd FLY by!

Shaela said...

cute sketch!

Katie Cotton said...

how fun! Great cards. Um... i dont think i've ever paid attention to how long i've spent stamping! hahaha

Sue D said...

Great sketch and examples.
I'm not sure how long I've spent stamping because usually I go back and forth from my stamping room to other household chores. I did go to a stamp camp that probably lasted 3 hours.

PaperCrafty said...

Fabulous sketch and love all the samples!! I love it when I can stamp all day long but that doesn't happen very often!!

Stephanie said...

I think the longest I've stamped is when I was working as a secretary before my little Lily was born... half an hour to work, and 7.5 hours a day to play!

Jen said...

I stamp with some friends on friday nights and it's about 4-5 hours. It's a good time.

Roxie said...

Love the sketch and all the cards. The are so creative.
The longest time I spent stamping was Friday 5 pm - Saturday 8am. I was at a weekend stamping retreat and took a short nap Saturday moring and was back to stamping by noon and stamped until midnight that night. I got soo much accomplished, but had to pay the piper when the back started having spasms.

Carol Meadows said...

Some really cute cards. The most wanted was a great idea. The most time I spent at one time on stamping was one year trying to finish 80 cards for Christmas after everything was cut, stamped and embellished was 6 hours but that area of the room looked like a train went through!! But I did it. Carol M in TX / carolswingster77@aol.com

Kris said...

Congrats to the winners! Sannas' card rocked all the way... very cute idea... i wasn't stamping the whole time but the longest i've been up doing it was 12 hours... gottah love them all-nighters... well, sometimes =D

WickedPixie said...

OMGoodness, that Wanted card is the cutest thing EVER!!! I love it!!! :-)Traci

Tams said...

I love the sketch today, I may even try it out myself. Beautiful cards. and great blog, adding it to my favs.

Isabel Z said...

The longest I've spent stamping is an entire day when a group of friends got together to create. Boy, that was fun.

Diamond Doll said...

A wicked wanted card i love it.Fab cards from the DT too.
Trish (-:

Ida P. Krause said...

Hard to say since I often spend an entire day creating one card. I stop for breaks to eat, bathroom stops etc...so all in all perhaps 5hours if you don't count the breaks.

Martha said...

I would say around 4-5 hours, when I had to finish some wedding cards.

Amy's Stocking Stuffers said...

I love the embossed texture on the first snowman card!

I've probably spent three hours at a time, that was making art trading cards where I was embossing the stamped images. I was doing them for a mail-in swap.

Berenice said...

So nice cards! My answer: 6 hours, making some invitations for my niece party :)

Shirley N said...

Great DT cards! The longest time spent stamping was probably around 8 hrs. Nothing else got done around the house!

Farida Rone said...

the longest time that I spent stamping was when I bought my Cuttlebug, I was so happy, because in my country buy machines like this is very hard to find and if you find it, they are to much expensive, so I bought it online and for all the time I had to wait, when I received I start to create and I think I spent 5 or 6 hours.

Christine said...

I've spent entire days stamping. I don't work and don't have children so stamping keeps me busy!

Blessings,
Christine

Erin said...

Congrats Sannas

Stephanie said...

great job ladies-luv the cards!!

I would say the longest was about 6hours-it was a swap for 12 cards.

Caroline said...

I'm not sure . . . probably about 4 hours or more. I lose track of time when I'm making cards and scrapbooking. :)

Heidi Brawley said...

omg! I spent about 9 hrs stamping a couple Fridays in a row at my friends house!!! So exhausting too!! Have a GREAT weekend!!!
~Heidi

Nena said...

I have stamped for about 6 hours
would have kept it up but my back
started to tell me to give it a
break. I think you get going and
more and more ideas come to your
mind:-)

Julie said...

Love the new sketch!

The logest time stamping... maybe 3 hours or so. I lost track of time when stamping. It never feels enough! ^_^

Jeanet said...

I'd love to do it most of the day, but I must also do my work at home, so I think it is in extremely cases 4 or 5 hours (when I'm together with a cardmaking friend)

Jeanet said...

Beautiful sketch... My card is on it's way!

Katjuska said...

Hi,
fab DT cards :)
Let see....maybe 8-10 hours is the longest time :) but time goes so quickly when you do what you love!

hugs, Katjuska
