Stamping Sensations Challenge

Happy New Year and time for our first challenge of 2016 at Stamping Sensations!

Our theme this month is......................

********Anything goes with a die********

A nice wide open theme this month and I think most us have a die or two or three. Usual rules apply, you can enter up to three times, combine with other challenges, use any make of stamp......but can I please remind you.........we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork. This can be a digi stamp, but not a pre-coloured image. It so upsets us to see names come out in the draw who are not eligible for the prize because they have not read the rules. 
My card above is one that welcomed my great-niece into the family. I used Inky Doodles stamps and a spellbinders scalloped rectangle die.
As I have had the time between Christmas and new year to relax a little, I managed a second card this month.
 The border is a spellbinders die and the stamp is a hero arts digi, coloured with alcohol markers and a few spots of starlights paint. The embossing folder with enclosed die is from Marianne designs. 

We are pleased to welcome Tonic Studios back as this months sponsor and what a fabulous prize they are offering to one very lucky winner.........................

I look forward to being able to purchase some of these beauties myself as they look wonderful! 
Do pop over to the challenge blog and check out the wonderful inspiration from my lovely team mates this month, and I look forward to seeing your entries soon.
Thanks for looking!
