Punches and Dies at Stamping Sensations

Good Morning! It is the first Sunday of the month and time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations- our first challenge of 2015 !
After all the seasonal festivities I hope you are all set for some crafting, and if Santa was kind with the crafty goodies what better opportunity than to give them their first outing with this months theme..........

********Dies and Punches********

With such a vast selection now available I don't think there are too many of us who don't have at least one or two in our crafty arsenal, so we hope lots of you will join us this month and get those dies and punches into action.
 I used a framelits iron work die that I picked up as a real bargain! The central panel was stamped with tiny text (Inkylicious) in tea dye distress inks. I then used flitterglu and Chocolate box mega flake(indigo Blu) on the flower(inkylicious). I used the same gilding flakes on a strip of double sided tape down the left hand side
Now onto the prize.We have the perfect prize of a great collection of Sizzix dies as well as a pretty collection of ribbons to add the finishing touch to your artwork.
 How cool is that? Looking forward to seeing all your fab entries! Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and see my teamies' wonderful creations!
Thanks for looking!

Hello Sally

I love your card it so reminds me of Rennie Mackintosh. The tiny text background and flower are beautiful.

A super combination of stamping and die cutting Sally and a really elegant feel as well.

Happy New Year.

Gorgeous card, Sally. You obviously have more success with Flitterglu & flakes than I do - I usually have more on me than on my card!

Sally, playing catchup visits this afternoon, and just happened to see your link at another blog. Thought to pop by to wish you a Happy 2015, and got to enjoy this gorgeous card. That is a wonderful way that you've used this die, & what a beautiful frame it created for the pretty soft image. I keep reading about flitterglu but haven't found a USA source as yet. I hope that your Christmas & New Year's celebrations were just super and that your loved ones were surrounding you. Looking forward to all your crafty skills in 2015. TFS & Hugs
