July challenge - Anything goes with a stamp

Welcome to our July challenge where this month we have a nice and easy theme of...................

********Anything Goes with a Stamp********

EDIT: So sorry, but the InLinkz link up expires a week before we intended it too, so if you are visiting and it has closed, please leave a link to your entry in the comments. The Challenge will run until 3rd August

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 you follow the following 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. 

Three lovely prizes from them, a set of Birthday stamps, a set of cute house dies and a cling stamp.

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 !

Stix 2 is the home of all your adhesive needs and much more as well. The prize is a collection of essential adhesive products. A prize of an ultimate adhesive kit.

We are pleased to welcome Andrea as our Guest designer this month and she has made this lovely Summer creation to inspire us..........................
