This is my first post of 2015, Happy New Year to you all, it's a new challenge for Stamping Sensations and Penny black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenges these could be the one for you.
At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'Dies & Punches', So get out your amazing dies and fabulous punches and join us please. I used multiple dies and punches, the fence, birdhouse and bird are all from a Marianne designs (Creatables), then I stamped my image on to a shape cut with another of Mariannes designs. My flowers were cut using sizzix Framelits, while the leaves were done with a signature die (Joanna Sheen) and finally the butterflies were done with a punch. Dies and punches are my favourite to use for embellishments, especially flowers.

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Stencils, Masks & Embossing Folders' I used an embossing folder on my card, a crafters companion button embossing folder. My stamp is from a set I got just before Christmas, they are called Fairy sweet from Penny Black.
