Stinker of a challenge!! he he he!!!

wow!! that was quite a list of links I needed to do there!!! he he he he!!!

Morning peeps!!! 

So we are having a little bit of fun over on the Dies to Die For inspiration blog and over on our Facebook page. You might like to join in because there will be a prize of a £10 for the shop for the winner!!!

oooh I hear you say!! what do we need to do to join in???!! well all you need to do is use your goodies from the Dies To Die For shop to alter a tin!!!

Yup!! just a common old sliced peaches tin...or any tin you like as long as it starts off looking as boring as this one I did!! he he he!!!

I keep all my tins, plomp them through a cycle in the dishwasher and then decorate away with a good old sheet of 12x12 double sided paper!! and there is always enough left over for die cutting some fru fru to add to your altered tin like butterflies, hearts, flowers etc. 

It really is so much fun. Now I am quick at it because I just splodge a whole load of anything at it but you can take your time because we are going to give you 2 weeks to join in the fun!! 

You have until sunday 27th October at 12am GMT to get your makes done and linked in to either the comments on this post or post them on our Facebook page to be in with the chance to win that £10 voucher for the shop.

Please remember to tell us what you used from the shop to qualify for the prize and to help others see which dies/ papers you used!!

I used some papers from the 12x12 random mix bundle I bought ( I tell you that pack is like christmas coming early!! I have had the most gorgeous papers in mine...some stroke only ones too of course!!!) and this one was one of them.

I absolutely love this little stamp, she is Stinker and I adore her!! she has the cutest little face!! I ripped a little tear in my paper and added a little piece behind with a stamped sentiment on and tucked some heart stems in behind it.

Here's a couple more piccies of the finished tin to get you all going....

We can't wait to see what you make!!!

thank you for popping in

  8. hi lou,

    this altered tin is just gorgeous!!! I wanted to try this once but the tin was to sharp inside and I don't know how to fix that.

    greetings femke

  9. Femke thats so sad :( I have a magic tin opener and they don't get sharp inside ( many experiments of me and scott running our fingers round it incase Mo hurts himself!!!) but if its sharp inside I wonder if you could glue a little bit of ribbon or paper over the sharp bit? xxxxxx
