Challenge 20 - Dies and/or Punches x

Hi guys, thanks so much for popping in :-D I hope you've all had a lovely month and that the sun has started shining where you are x We've been seeing peeks of summer recently so feeling very positive and ready to whip the BBQ out any minute :-) 

We had another wonderful challenge last month - so many beautiful cards and so many gorgeous sentiments. We really enjoyed looking through all of them - thank you xx I’ve run the numbers through the random number generator and our winners for the challenge are:


Spanish Crafter

 Julie Gleeson

Desire Fourie

Gloria Shirr

Dawn Lancaster

Rachel Taylor

Katie Tate

Helen

Congratulations guys – I’ll get your cards added to the winners wall ASAP. You can grab your winners badge from the sidebar – any probs let me know x 

Please email your choice of 4 digi's to flatfriendsboutique@gmail.com and I'll get them over to you straight away. 

Right, on to the next challenge - as you can see from the post title and pic below we're looking for cards that have been made using punches and/or die cuts. I think this will be a lovely one and can't wait to see what everyone comes up with :-) 





The winner(s) will be chosen using the Random Number Generator and announced on the 1st of next month when we launch our June challenge. 

As always our lovely DT ladies have made some really cute cards for inspiration - a big thanks from me to them xxx 

Hope you’ll join us again this month and that you have fun playing along. Have a lovely week and I’ll see you on the next post :-D 

Digi hugs and xx's




Hello, Angela here!  Dies and Punches...great challenge...I used them all the time!  I loved this new "Love Heart" image of Em's and thought it would go perfectly with this heart border die in my stash.  I colored the image with pencils, cut it out, and popped it up.  Why do I always think fussy cutting is a great idea until I'm in the middle of doing it?  LOL  I embellished simply with red gems.  I hope you will put your dies and punches to work and play along!



Audrey  here using Millie Birthday for my card.  I chose to color her in primary/neutral colors and cut her out with a Nestie die.  I also used a Nestie to cut the sentiment.  I used an EK Success punch for the borders on the middle piece and added bling flourishes and glittery bling dots to round out the card.  Sure hope you like it!!


Hey everyone, it's Kathy here! Dies and punches? Yes, please! I love both and have quite a stash in all shapes and sizes. I never make a card with out using one or the other, often both. Here I used some round, rectangle and word window type nestabilities and a SU border punch. Hope you will take some time this month and play along with us!



Hello, its Sally here. Today, for our challenge we are using Dies and Punches! My favourite tools!  So I chose one of Emma's new images, Little Princess kissing a frog.  I coloured here with my Graph'it markers, used Pan Pastels around the edges and then cut a frame die.  Found some lovely stripey paper in my crafty stash and matted the image onto it.  I then stamped and punched some butterflies and I had the perfect sentiment "Make a Wish".  I hope you like it x


Hi guys, Em here :-)  For my card I went with the new 'Love Heart' digi, coloured him with my copics, and mounted the image with foam pads. I punched the love hearts in using my Heart Tonic Studios Paper Punch. The papers behind the hearts are both from the 'Love Me' paper pad by My Minds Eye - lots of love on this card :-D Hope you'll all play along - can't wait to see what ya'll come up with this month xxx




Remember that you don't need to use a Flat Friends digi to enter our challenges anymore but there is an extra prize on offer if you do :-) 

Also, each challenge can only be entered once so unfortunately multiple entries will not be entered into the draw xx
