Sir Stampalot June Challenge - Punch It - use those punches

Good morning,

It's time for the June Sir Stampalot challenge Punch It!

With all the gorgeous punches available now we are sure you will have great fun with this one and we are really looking forward to seeing how you use your punches on your projects, be it borders, flowers, or something completely new. As usual your project can be anything you have created yourself and for any occasion, the only requirement is that we see some punched elements on your work. Visit the Sir Stampalot challenge blog for more information.

I've used a selection of border punches on my DT card. I have to admit that this is not my own idea, I cased it from Julia Stainton and you can see her card here. I have used ivory and beige pearlescent card and the wording is made using Martha Stewart alphabet punches - it would probably have looked better stamped but as the idea was to use punches I thought I would stick with the punched letters.

We have a very apt prize this month, this amazing array of all things punchy - ** Two Martha Stewart Around the Page sets ** Three of the fabulous EK Success Paper Shaper sets which have not only the punch but matching stamps and ink pads all included ** A fabby Provo Craft tool set........and it's pink ** Plus a whole load of corner, stitchy and other punches. This lot adds up to £201, so a pretty amazing prize.

We do hope you can join us this month.

Clare xx
