This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Rubber Stamp (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

I did have to think long and hard about this one, as I have about 5 current favourites (some old, some new) but the reason I've chosen this Posy trio from Lili of the Valley is because it's really versatile.  I've used it on cards, gifts and tags.

The bears are lovely and quick to colour, and you easily can fit all three onto a card base, or focus on just one as I've done here ...

... and they are the perfect size for my tag dies.  I cut around the metal die using a craft knife to create the coloured matted layers, and used matching seam binding.


I love cupcakes and I love the Hero Art cupcake set.   I love it so much that the cupcake stamp used on the tag here was so overworked it started to break.  So I bought a complete new set of the same!
It's so versatile.

Well I must admit that I love Magnolia stamps and this one is one of my favourite ones - Tilda with prince froggy. Well the little girls are so cute and can be used for all sorts of occasions. 


When I first started card making I bought quite a few from the Bildmalarna range, this one being the first. She still remains a favourite as she is so easy to colour and can be used for 
lots of reasons, even Christmas at a push!!

I love this stamp of Primrose, she look stylish and vintage. 
I created the fabric flowers that work so well.


This Henry the mouse is my favourite rubber stamp. I do have more of him, but this one I like the best because it is so versatile. I love that cute little mouse. He is so much fun to colour. 

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Rubber Stamp (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
