June Challenge - Week 2

Have you had a go at our fun challenge this month?  There is a £20 prize up for grabs so its worth getting the creative juices flowing.

The idea is not to see a single die-cut as the "finished" product - take a look at it creatively - if you cut it again with another die - could it be more exciting or give you a different look?  Maybe the word you want to spell out doesn't fit on your card, but if you die cut the next letter into the previous one then it would?

As usual our fabulous DT have some great examples if you're stuck for ideas.  This week Gemma, Jill and Taheerah are sharing theirs.

I used a cover die to add pattern to papers, before die-cutting them with a word die.
Using Lil'Inker Quilted Swirl Stitched Pattern die, Mama Elephant Little Dog Agenda, MFT Big Hugs, MFT Label Maker Sentiments, and MFT Watercolour Wash papers.

Using Paper Smooches Glasses and Paper Smooches Tiny Hearts dies, with a sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Monster Mash.

I used the WPlus9 Starry Background Die to die cut a pattern into my Neat & Tangled Classic Tag 2 die cut. The background die is exactly the right size to fit into the tag die so I was even able to run both dies through in one go! I love the retro colouring of the planets from the Altenew Space Travel stamp set - and the sentiment from Altenew's To The Moon set goes perfectly with them!

Link up to the challenge page when you've finished for a chance to win £20 to spend in store.  Deadline is 10pm on Sunday 25th June.

As always you MUST use at least ONE product from the range we sell in store to be eligible for the prize and for the DT to comment.  Please ensure you list the items you use in your description, particularly if the qualifying item you've used is not obvious.
