Crafter's Companion Scavenger Hunt Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crafter's Companion Scavenger Hunt Blog Hop!!

I'm so happy you hopped by today!! Before we get started I wanted to share the project I made for you today.   I used the SWALK Deserve a Treat stamp set.  My card is 5" square.  My matting behind my image is done with a border die cut that I cut apart and placed piece by piece.  My image is colored with the Spectrum Noir markers.

And here is another card using one of the NEW Humphrey stamps that will soon be available at Crafter's Companion:

Humphrey is colored in using the Spectrum Noir markers.  I stamped Humphrey 3 times and colored in certain areas and fussy cut them out and popped them up on the main image to give my card a little bit of dimension.

A closer look at Humphrey:

Now let's get you started on the Scavenger Hunt! There are 12 design team members and each of us have a question that will give you clues to 12 different items that you can find in the Crafter's Companion Store.

So your goal is to hop around to all 12 blogs and get all 12 questions and then hop over to the Crafter's Companion Store to find the answers. After you have found the answers you will then put them in an email to Bindy at Open to US Residents only!

If you do that and follow the other requirements which I will tell you in a minute you will be entered into the drawing to win the Grand Prize which is the entire Peter the Rabbit Collection of Stamp Sets!! This will add up to 9 (!) awesome stamp sets!

Along the way each designer will have a project to inspire you and also the possibility to win on their individual blogs too!! Each designer is giving away a Cute Companions -Romance stamp set, two embossing powders (one white and one blush rose) and one sheet of EZ mount foam!

This blog hop will run from Friday, April 20th at midnight and end at midnight pst on Sunday, April 22nd. Winners will be announced on the Crafter's Companion Informational blog on Tuesday April 24th.
