Welcome to the Poppystamps Challenge! We're so happy you've stopped by and we sure hope you'll join us! On the first of the month we announce a new Poppystamps Challenge with a central theme. The design team will provide samples for inspiration and you can play along through the end of the month for your chance to win.

Want to play?
The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up here. The design we love best will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize. You don't have to have a blog to play. You can link to any on line gallery. In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Poppystamps image. We ask that you link a maximum of 3 entries to each challenge. You are welcome to link your design to other challenges. Grab our badge to post on your blog post or side bar!
PSC #35 Beyond Borders - There are so many different kinds of dies to love but border dies are some of our favorites. Borders are used to define the edge of a design or to divide areas on a project, but they're not limited to that. They can be used to create a border or to dress up a wrap around a gift. Borders add a lacy edge and a pop of color to a design. The intricate designs make everything look rich and expensive. The choice is yours! This month we're looking for borders on your designs. They don't have to be die cut.. they can be stamped or punched. Whatever you decide be sure to include at least one Poppystamps image (die or stamp) on your design.
Here's some samples from our design team. Want a closer look? No worries.. we're starting a new feature on the blog on Wednesdays where you'll get a close up of each project with close ups and details.
Now it's your turn! Need a little more motivation? How about a prize? The winner (chosen at random) of this challenge will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on their favorites from the store!
You have until 12 am US EST on August 30 to link up your design here! We'll start a new challenge and announce the winner on September 1.
Thanks for joining us! We can't wait to see what you make!
