June Challenge at Stamping Sensations

Good morning! This is the first Sunday of the month and so time for a new challenge over at Stamping Sensations. This month our theme is........................

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

We still need to see a stamped element but this can be combined with whatever dies and punches you would like to use.
 Here is my card
The flower stamp is from Little Claires and the sentiment is from Inkylicious. I stamped the background with the inkylicious worn paint background. The dies are from Marianne designs and spellbinders. The inks are Adirondack Eggplant and Pool. I coloured the flower with promarkers and added colour to the card and die cuts with my ink dusters.

We have a fabulous prize from.............

Tonic Studios who are this months sponsor are synonymous with quality and precision cutting products from scissors to punches, guillotines to dies. During the last year they have extended their range of products to high quality clear stamps  and very recently released their own design papers. Their products are available from many High Street craft stores and frequently feature on Create and Craft TV. And here is a photo of that prize:
What an amazing prize it is! As this goes live I will be getting ready to set off to Doncaster to Stamp Magic, a show I really love! 
Hope you get the chance to join in with our Challenge this month. Please pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at the wonderful inspiration created by my fab teamies!
Thanks for looking!

  9. Lovely card Sally, I like that edge die and the inkylicious background stamp, must have missed that one! Glad you had a good day at Doncaster, I'd love to go but I'm a non driver and up to now I've not managed to twist anyone's arm to take me. You can never ever buy too much stuff at craft shows, it's all really essential !


  10. Great how the blue background makes this card more modern! Beautiful shapes and flower! Hope you had a fun time and found some great new stamps at the show! Hugs, Gerrina

  11. Hi Sally,
