Hurray! It's Stamp Man challenge time again!

And guess what? It's my turn to set the challenge and I've gone for a recipe! Crossed with a bingo card really.....

Embossing powder
Stitches (real or faux)
Die cut
Homemade background (no patterned paper)
Sparkle and bling

The idea is that you take three items in a row (horizontally, diagonally or vertically) and make something using all three. 

Here's mine....

I did a vertical line from the middle of the box- Embossing powder, ribbon and handmade background. I made a set of 2 little notebooks and at the front of the picture is a post it note holder/cover. 

The background is made with moonglow starburst stains (thanks Jill) and then stamped with little flowers from 

You can see the embossing a bit better in this picture. It's quite subtle.

Then I overstamped the gorgeous butterfly from the Aspects of Design 62 Butterfly beauties set in black. The ribbon finishes them off and pulls it all together.

Right, your turn now.... what will you make? There's a £10 Stamp Man voucher up for grabs! Head over to the challenge blog for more info.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Papertake- Bloom and grow
Crafts and me- Anything goes
