June challenge - Flower Power

Welcome to our June challenge where this month we have the theme of...................

********Flower Power********

As always your creation can be anything you wish, from cards to tag, gift boxes and bags to mixed media, all we ask is that we see flowers on your creations and ask that you follow a few basic rules....................

We 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 are Penny Black Stickeroos. But no digi images and entries using them WILL NOT be eligible for prizes or GDT spots. 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. 

As always three lovely prizes from them, a floral stamp, die set and four sheets of floral stickers...........

Stamp Addicts is a family run business based in Bedfordshire and have been in business since 1992. We have watched the popularity of rubber stamping and all papercrafts steadily increase over time and now manufacture our own branded rubber stamps which frequently feature on Hochanda TV as well as craft shows across the UK. One lucky winner will win a £10 store voucher.

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.

We are pleased to welcome Lorraine as our Guest Designer this month selected from our April entries, she has made this lovey fresh Daisy card to share with us all................

And my team mater Kevin  has been having fun with his PB critters and created this lovely card to inspire us................

And here is a little more inspiration from the Design Team, I hope you will pop along to both the Guest Designs and Design Team blogs to more about their creations.
