Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - June Challenge

Hello and welcome to the June Crafty Wednesday challenge taking place right here on my blog. I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you'll link up your crafty makes too! There were many fabulous entries last month, thank you all so much for sharing!! Be sure to scroll down to see who made the Top picks with a twist. 

As always at Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday the theme is now.....................

Anything Goes,

and instead of a challenge theme there will be a "Top Pick Twist" but nobody knows what the twist will be (not even me) until the challenge closes as it will be inspired by YOUR creations. So do link up all your new or recently created projects for a chance to be featured. Remember, you may share anything crafty, handmade by you. It doesn't have to be a card.

And here is my card:

A CAS card this time using an older wood mounted Penny Black stamp - Long Stem Cuties (no. 1648K). This stamp was re-released as a clear stamp but it's smaller in size in case you are wondering. The clear stamp set version is called "...For You Mini" (no. 30-801).

Stamped with Versafine Onyx ink on Canson watercolor paper, then colored with Zig Clean color and Distress inks. The flower border on the bottom was part of a patterned paper and I finished it off by adding some paper piercing. Pink card stock was made with Saltwater taffy Distress Oxide ink and then mounted onto a white card base. "Hello" and "Beautiful" are from two different stamp sets from my stash. 

I plan to link up with these challenges:

May Top Picks with a Twist:

As mentioned previously, there is now a Top Pick Twist when it comes to my selection of Top Picks. Nobody knows what the twist will be - not even me - until the end of the month as the twist will be totally inspired by YOUR creations. This means the top picks will all have something in common.

The twist from the May entries is...........Embossing

No. 1 Donna W. 

No. 14 Ginny B.

No. 64 Diane H. 

Congrats everyone, well deserved recognition! Your top pick logo is below. Feel free to post it to your own blogs if you like to :)

I will continue to pin the top picks to the dedicated Pinterest board, but will also include photo and link back to the original blogs/sites here. These will be removed at the start of the new challenge to stay in compliance with GDPR.

To join in this month's challenge please use the linky tool below. You have until Friday June 30th 11:59 CST to play along!

A few things to remember:
  • You may combine with any other challenges.
  • You may use any brand of stamps/digis/products (no company restriction).
  • Please try to limit your linked up cards to 3 entries per month - it's ok if you end up with more than 3.
  • Please do include a link back here to my blog in your blog post.
  • Backlinking to a recent post IS allowed.
  • Digital products are allowed and very welcome but the final piece has to be a physical handmade creation, not just digital
