Your Next Stamp DT card for The Pink Elephant challenge

Click to enlarge image This week, Your Next Stamp is sponsoring The Pink Elephant Challenge blog and I was honoured to be asked to be a guest designer for this challenge!

TPE Challenge #33 is a recipe challenge: Something with dots, Use a Punch(es), a Tag. Of course, I just HAD to use my brand new Windswept Fhiona stamp, but this time I wanted to have a go at using my Copics to colour her, so I chose some fun paper and a bright colour scheme to match the colours in the small set of Copic Ciaos that I own!

For the punches part of the recipe, I used my Woodware Daisy punch (...I must get some other sizes of this great punch - I only have 'regular', LOL!) to handmake some co-ordinating flowers. And I popped a decorated chipboard tag on for the sentiment.

Over at Truly Scrumptious this week, there is a fabulous sketch by Heather for Challenge 16, so I followed this for my card. It was fab to work with, and so I will certainly be using this one again!

I'm also going to enter this card into this week's One Stop Craft Challenge 48 which is Die Cuts (I used my Nesties Circles!).

Don't forget that there are still LOADS of ways to win free YNS stamps and YNS gift certificates at the moment. You must get your hands on these little beauties, as we'd LOVE you to join in with our fortnightly (bi-weekly) challenge blog, starting 7th October!! - just check out my YNS section of my sidebar for all the details and links ------->
