February challenge - Anything goes with a stamp and a die/s

Good morning, it's time for our new challenge and this month our theme is..............

******Anything Goes with a stamp and die/s******

So nice and open, we all seem to love our dies and I am sure you are going to wow us with your entries. 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 hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork, it can be a stamped image/s, large sentiment or quote.........the one exception is Penny Black Stickeroos. But no digi images and entries using them WILL NOT be eligible for prizes. It so upsets us to see names come out in the draw who are not eligible for a prize because they have not read the rules. 

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. If you would like to be one of the first to hear about new products from Penny Black please click here to join the free club, plus their Facebook is full of activity and news.

Here are the lovely prizes from them this month.................

Crafts U Love  was formed in 2001 by Paul Baughton and Jenny Baughton. They are one of the largest stockist in the UK of die cutting and rubber stamp products as well as a wide range of general card making and scrapbooking products.

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!

Sizzix, there's no bigger or better place for craft materials, custom dies and machines that can die-cut, emboss and texturize many materials, including cardstock, paper, construction paper, fabric, faux fur, felt and foil plus much more.

And we also have another pair of tickets to give away for the NEC Spring Hobbycraft show 17th - 20th March.

And don't forgot the DT are always on the lookout for our next Guest Designer from entries using Penny Black stamps.

Our first Guest Designer this month is Marika  who has made this really pretty card.....................
