Competition time at Papermill Direct on Facebook!!

Box set 703e

It's competition time at Papermill Direct on Facebook. The prize is a boxed set (703e) of Tonic Studios Punch and Stamps - one of my own designs!

These punches work wonderfully with Papermill cardstock !!
In the card below I have used Papermill White linen, Purple Grape and New Lilac cardstock.

I have attached all the flowers to the card with  Dodz 3D from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I've been asked to tell you a little about the prize ;

This is a set of 4 punches, 4 mini stamps, an acrylic cylinder stamping block and a detailed instruction booklet.
When I was designing these sets (you can see the others HERE) I tried to come up with something which could be used by all levels of crafter from novice to experienced..You can use them to make a quick, flat flower from plain card/paper or spend a little more time and make a fully 3D lifelike flower using the stamps included, or even use patterned paper to coordinate with your project.

The flowers included in the instruction booklet are really just to get you started - once you begin to punch out the shapes you'll quickly realise that the possibilities are embossing, pinching, twisting and snipping you can create countless new flowers.

What's in the box - 4 medium punches (petals, stamen/sepal,leaf) 4 mini stamps, an acrylic cylinder for stamping with and a detailed instruction booklet.
A selection of some of the flowers it's possible to make with this set.

Ok, what's not to like....? See you over at the Papermill Direct on Facebook


  1. I could almost be tempted to enter the world of social networking Ruth, I'm itching to get my grubby mitts on these.

    Your card looks very pretty in the lilacs.

    Wishing you a happy Easter.

  2. Fabulous card, I love the flowers and your colour combo, I've been over to facebook after seeing your post, fingers crossed x

  3. Hello Ruth, your cards and flowers are stunning. Could I please ask, would you usually use card or paper for the flowers. I am sorry if this is the wrong place to be asking I am new to this social networking and am not sure how to use it yet. (the craft cart)

    1. Hi Joan. Thanks very much for the compliment! I actually use both depending on what the project is. Some of the flowers look great made with paper because they are more realistic but you need to be careful not to squash them. I use card (but not too thick) for most of them as the flowers hold their shape well and are not easily flattened. Just experiment - you'll soon know from the results what you prefer. Hope that helps :)

    2. Thank you so much for taking the time to reply, it is very much appreciated.
