Punches for Sir Stampalot !

Good morning and welcome to the June Challenge for Sir Stampalot! The theme this month is 'Punch it' , so you will need to get those punches out! My card this month uses a Martha Stewart punch around the page set, doily lace and an EK success border as well as two mini flowers and a leaf punch. The main image is from Penny Black, the Script is Hero Arts and the flourish is from Crafty Individuals. I coloured the poppy with watercolours and distress inks. The paper is from the Papermania Capsule collection. I used Antique linen, Tea dye and Wild Honey distress inks. Now then, the prize...

Isn't it wonderful? All those fabulous punches, and a few I've not seen before that are on my shopping list for my next visit to Sir Stampalot
Can we remind everyone that we do have a few rules on the sidebar and especially that you can combine your Stampalot entry with a maximum of five other challenges. Nobody likes rules, but we hate to get to your blogs and find a super piece of work that can't be included because it has been combined with a long list of other challenges. And most of all we so dislike having to be the the baddies who tell peeps that they are not eligible for the prize on offer. Try to remember  to pop in a link back to the Sir Stampalot challenge too, please. 
Do pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at the wonderful cards the DT have made, and then get out those punches and join in! Thanks for looking!

  1. Hi Sally, have to say my jaw dropped when I saw this totally stunning card! It's so beautiful and I love all the punched elements which are really incredible.
    I particularly like the one used on the pretty mat for the poppies so will have a nose to see what it is.

  13. Hi Sal

    A stunning card to go with a stunning prize.

    Love how you have used the border punch to mount your lovely poppy image. I gained this one a few weeks ago - but it didn't look this good once I had finished with it LOL!!!

    Soon be Saturday!!

    Love Jules xx
