Today a new challenge starts on the “Stampin’ with the Dragon” Challenge Blog.

ChallengeAdvertisingBadgeChalenge WinnerPrizeEach ”Stampin’ with the Dragon” challenge goes live the first Friday of the month with a new theme each time. The winner will get picked by “Random” so that it is fair for all levels of crafters.  The winner gets a voucher for £5.00 to spend in the Stamping Dragon Designs store.  You may enter each challenge ONCE with the use of any materials you wish.

For June the theme is : Clean & Simple (CAS)



I have gone very “Clean and Simple” with my inspiration card this time, using one image, some lines and a greeting drawn using a pen in my Brother ScanNCut machine, and five little sticky back gems from my crafting stash.

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:




I printed the image out at smaller than the size provided and then coloured it in.  After colouring the wings I went over them with the clear Wink of Stella but used the Violet Wink of Stela as it was on parts of her clothing.  I took a sheet of linen textured cardstock and put it through my ScanNCut machine to draw on the frame and greeting in the relevant place before scoreing it.  I also put the sheet with the coloured in digi into my ScanNCut and background scanned it (without any saving being involved) to get the location of the image before drawing the same shape around it and cutting it out with a border of 2mm.  It was then simply a case of attaching the created topper to the card front and sticking on the little gems.


Please go over to the “Stampin’ with the Dragon” Challenge Blog and have a look at my fellow Design Team members’ inspiration pieces.

I hope you like what you’ve seen and read – You should find a box below where you can leave a comment if you feel like it, but due to the fact that, like many I’m sure, I’ve had some problems with Spam/advertising posts that are absolutely nothing to do with the content of my blog, I now moderate all comments before they go live. Genuine comments will go live when I’ve checked through the list – usually a couple of times a day.)

  1. Love the Clean and Simple look, especially with the minimal colour pallet. The image is sassy and you have sparkled her perfectly. I really love like the shape you have used for your line border.
