August challenge - Anything goes with a stamp

Please note: Our July winners post is right below this one.

Welcome to our August challenge where this month we have the nice and easy theme of...................

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

As always your creation can be anything you wish, from cards to tags, gift boxes and bags to mixed media, all we ask is 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. 

Lovely prizes from them as always, a sweet cling stamp, a set of Christmas stamps and a stencil.

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.

Stix 2 is the home of all your adhesive needs and much more as well.

Our first Guest Designer who we are pleased to welcome this month is Lorraine who has made this gorgous stepper card...................

And we are also pleased to have Kath, my teamie from Allsorts as our second Guest Designer this month, she has made this super floral card to inspire you............
