Is it a CHA thang or what? Challenges and stamp companies just disappear. But before you know it new ones have popped up to keep us engaged.
Well, there's a new kid on the block in the challenge AND product category and there are stamps to be won, folks. Sound good? Check out STAMPlorations shop here. How would you describe Shery's designs? Kinda artsy, kinda graphic. Kinda cool. Can't wait for my first sets to arrive.
As for the challenges... there's a themed challenge every month (prize = 2 stamp sets) as well as sketch challenges every two weeks (prize = 3 digi products). And if you participate in all three for the month you're in the running for a grand prize. This is January's grand prize - did ya see those Luxe rub-ons - yum :)))
This month's challenge is about stamping and feathers. How's that for trendy?!? Shery R. has designed an artsy feather set, VIGNETTE: Trendy Feathers -
but you don't have to use STAMPlorations stamps to be eligible to win the challenges! And here's a peek at the current sketch challenge -
Me likey. You can keep it CAS or take it up a notch. Banners. Washi. Masked stamping. Hmmm... probably doesn't surprise you that I went CAS with it...
Some heat embossing, masking, inking - using the "I've got your number" stamp set from The Craft's Meow (which is one of the companies disappearing this year)! Even some PP on the inside in a nod to my buddy, Kelly G. You see it in the small photo up top.
This is the year of the big "five-oh". For me and many friends. So my card stash begins.
