Something Sweet

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.

We have sponsorship this Month from

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

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.
