Mid month inspiration


Good morning to you all, I am running a bit late with this post, I forgot to schedule it and this morning Mr Blogger is being decidedly difficult and oh so slow, but got here eventually with our mid way post for this months theme of 'Use your favorite Stamp'.

Lots of lovely entries so far, but you still have two weeks left if you have not joined in yet or want to enter a second or third piece of work and use one of those favorite stamps.

Here is a little but more inspiration from the Design Team.

Brenda
Using Penny Black 3381K Aspire and 3937H Birds on wire - I tend to use both of these stamps an awful lot so figure they must be favorites

Lynn
Using Marianne camera die PB Critter Party set 30-013 and Love London 30-093
with sentiment from Flonzcraft

Mervi
Penny Black Daisy Love 40-065

Sam
Another Oldie (and i so love the Men / Boys Images too) : Penny Black - 'Fish Dreams - 720K'

Susan

My favourite 'quick' Penny Black stamp - no colouring required

Good luck to you all.

June challenge


Good morning crafters, I hope you are all ready for our June challenge where we have the theme..........

******Use your favorite stamp******

Most of us have a stamp that we find we return to time and again and this month we would like to see what yours is. Usual rules apply, you can enter up to three times, combine with other challenges, use any make of stamp, but no digi images and we must see some stamping as the focal element of our work. Any entries failing to meet the rules may still receive comments from the DT but will not be eligible for the prizes on offer.


Penny Black invite you to explore their creative world and see for yourself why their rubber stamps, stickers, beautiful papers for scrapbooking, cardmaking and stamp crafting are everyone’s favourites. Their products are designed to integrate style and colour for creating the best handicraft projects ever. 


Three great prizes from them.


Crafty Ribbons is a ribbon emporium, we are passionate about ribbons and want to share our fantastic ribbons with others. Our range of Christmas ribbons is second to none. Remember when we only used ribbons to add a bow to our hair, or tie up a birthday parcel ? Ribbons are now a "must-have" for all types of craft. Whether your project requires satin, sheer, silk, grosgrain, gingham or polka dot ribbon we have them all! Lots and lots of different colours in a range of widths. Need a little bit of ribbon inspiration - then have a look at our projects on our blog,or visit our Inspiration blog,or maybe join in with us at our Challenge blog. Go on, have a look... It's worth it ! A prize of a collection of ribbons.


FlonzCraft are a small family-owned design and craft company from New Zealand, a very small country where all people are great neighbours. We work hard for our work and store philosophy to reflect that in our company. We will never be ashamed of our products. Our main goal is making and selling rubber and clear stamps and we have and unique collection of stamps that you can not find anything else. One winner will receive a $20 voucher to spend on stamps from their store.


Stix 2 is the home of all your adhesive needs and much more as well. One winner will receive one of their Ultimate Adhesive Kits.

Now for some inspiration from the Design Team and this months Guest Designer, the first is my teamie from Allsorts Tracy who has created a fabulous inky piece for us...........


And Diane who was invited from our April entries with this beauty.................

Oooo it's so hard picking but I do love the stamps that are at least 10 years old and mixed with the fact that I'm a dog lover (Whisper) : 'Penny Black - Scooter Dog / 2086H (2001) and Bon Mot/ 3683F' fit perfectly
