Challenge Badge

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 the Poppystamps Challenge Challenge #96 Anything Goes is Birgit Norton!


The lucky winner of the draw (chosen by random number generator) for the monthly prize is Linda W. 

Please contact me (Jeanne) at [email protected] 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 online 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 sidebar!


PSC#97 - ABC Anything BUT a Card  It seems like once fall announces it's arrival it's all about the holidays.  Better get a jump on all of your gift giving, whether it's a bitty bag of Halloween treats, or some home baked pumpkin bread -  the little details make even the simplest gifts more heart felt .  This month we're looking for Anything but a Card.  We'd love to see how you make things extra special with home made tags and treat bags, garlands of die cut images, and other paper crafts.   How about a page layout of your favorite holiday memory.  The challenge is not limited to Holiday - you can choose ANY occasion or event. It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project! 

Need a little inspiration?  Here are 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.

Hello! My name is Zoe, and I am from California. I enjoy card making, mixed media, and sending happy mail. I’ve been creative my whole life and found card making and mixed media in 2018 when I was searching for ways to jazz up my happy mail. I have fallen in love with card making. When I am not in my craft room you will find me swimming or cooking. At work, I advocate for those who have developmental disabilities.
