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.
The winner of our blog badge for last month's challenge Lots of Dots is Kimberly Weiner!
The lucky winner of the draw (chosen by random number generator) for the monthly prize is Birgit!
Please contact me (jeanne) at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize.
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#37 Masquerade - Our challenge is a play on words this time.. A "Masquerade" is defined as a false show or pretense. Halloween is a time when we dress up in costumes and pretend to be the characters we dress up as. Many times this involves a "Mask" to conceal our identities. We want you to create a project using a mask. Masking is very popular in stamping - covering previously stamped areas with a mask and doing more stamping over the masked image. Masking is also a great way to cover a stamped image and add background color. Another type of mask is a STENCIL that masks areas allowing you to add ink where you like. The choice is yours, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image on your project.
Need a little inspiration? Here's some samples from our design team. Want a closer look? No worries.. we'll be featuring these projects on Wednesdays throughout the month so you can see how each project was created.
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 October 29 to link up your design here! We'll start a new challenge and announce the winner on November 1.
Thanks for joining us! We can't wait to see what you make!
