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 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#84 Wonderful Washi! Washi tape is a decorative masking tape traditionally made of rice paper. It comes in lots of different patterns and sizes for a host of creative ideas. It's a great way to add a little color and interest to your designs and once you get started using it there's no going back! Washi can be used to create a fun patterned background, you can stick it to paper and cut out the printed images or die cut your own. The challenge is not limited to cards - we'd love to see your page layouts, home decor, tags, and mixed media. 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.
We're trying something new this month ! We've asked a guest designer to join us to share even more creative ways to use your dies. Please welcome our very first guest, Tenia Nelson. When the Wonderful Washi Challenge was announced I knew she was the perfect choice because I consider her the Washi Queen. I don't think I have ever seen a creation from her that didn't include a bit of washi tape - I consider it her trademark!
