June challenge

Good morning all you crafters out there and welcome to a brand new Stampalot Challenge. Yet again you wowed us with all your fabulous work in May, so a huge thank you goes out to each and every one of you for helping us make our new challenge such a success.

Before I tell you about this months challenge can I remind everyone that we do have a few rules on the sidebar and especially that you can combine your Stampalot entry with a maximum of five other challenges. Nobody likes rules, but we hate to get to your blogs and find a super piece of work that can't be included because it has been combined with a long list of other challenges. And most of all I so dislike having to be the the baddie to tell peeps that they are not eligible for the prize on offer.

Nasties over and on to June's challenge and this month we are going all punchy with the theme:

"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 occasions, the only requirement is that we see some punched elements on your work.

And of course we have another fabulous prize for this months lucky winner.......these Stampalot guys are pretty darn good you know...... and as the theme is all about punches, what better prize that 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 Prove Craft tool set........and it's pink ** Plus a whole load of corner, stitchy and other punches. I had a quick add up as I went along and got to £201, so a pretty amazing prize.

I think the DT have had their own little competition going on to see who can use the most punched and it's been a bit like stop the difference as they all came up with the artwork for this month. You can click on their names to go to their blogs to see how they created their work.
