10-17 copyPSC#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.

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.
