July Challenge at Sir Stampalot

Good morning and welcome to this months challenge at Sir Stampalot.This month we decided to ley you have a bit of a free for all so the Challenge is Anything Goes.
I used one of the new Molly Blooms stamps (Flake-tastic Molly) and one of the older ones (Dandelion clock flower) to make the frame, with Distress inks in Victorian Velvet and Wild Honey. The background scene was stamped with the Hobby Art Scene-it clear set called Harbour. All stamping was done with versafine black apart from the frame and all colour was added with distress inks, either sponged or watercoloured and aqua markers. I cut the frame with a Go create die called Large Frames Frilly #5.

As you will see from the super inspiration on the challenge blog, we are all using Molly Blooms stamps showing you just how versatile the new Molly Blooms Summer 2011 collection is, just right for all those Summer creations. You can find all the stamps used in this card at Sir Stampalot waiting to make their way to your craft desk.

And as you might expect, this months fabulous prize has several of the new Molly Blooms stamps along with lots of other summery crafty goodies to keep the lucky winner occupied for days.
 Even if you are not into cute there are lots of great stamps to create scenes with, like the tree-house, daisies and beach-huts.
I do hope you can join in with us this month. Just remember  - only combine your creation with 5 other challenges - that's six in all. Thanks for looking and I will look forward to visiting you!

This is stunning Sally! I love the harbour scene, it must have taken you a lot of time and patience to stamp it. I love the outside too, what a great way to use the Molly Blooms dandelion.
Hugs, Clare x

I'm definitely not into cute but I love the harbour scene you've made in the aperture and the stamping frames it beautifully.

Hugs, Fliss xx


Hi Sally,
The background scene really "pops out" of the aperture - such a brilliant idea and so effective. Love Molly Bloom and her HUGE ice cream!
Hope you are well, and looking forward to the Summer school holiday.
Have a happy weekend - hugs, Sylvia xxx
