December Challenge: STAMPS & SILHOUETTES

Welcome to the December challenge. We’d love it if you’ll join us for the entire month of December! Each month we have a theme, and for December, we’d love to see any and all kinds of paper crafts using STAMPS & SILHOUETTES.

The winner will receive 2 Vignette clear stamp sets of her choice. (Visit the shop to see the 9 Vignette stamp sets.)

We’re looking for a couple more creative paper crafters to become a part of the STAMPlorations design team. If you have a blog dedicated to sharing your paper crafting projects (cards, tags, altered art, mixed media, etc.) and you’d like to be part of our design team for a minimum of 6 months starting March 2014, show us your stuff! Details (what's required and what you'll receive in return) are here.

Here are the projects that Nonni and I created for this month’s challenge. We hope they’ll inspire you and we’re excited to see what you create!

  • Create a card, tag, mini album/scrapbook cover, layout, home decor item, or any paper craft that features STAMPS & SILHOUETTES. Any style is welcome — CAS, shabby chic, vintage, grunge, and so on. Post your creation on your blog and submit it by11:55 p.m. PST on Tuesday, December 31. Don’t have a blog? You can post a photo of your project on your Pinterest page, Flickr, or any public online gallery.
  • You must use stamps (rubber, cling, clear, digi — from any company) in your creation(s).
  • Copy the link of your blog entry where you have your project posted and enter it to the linky found at the end of this post. Remember to link directly to your blog post, not just your blog URL. (This will make it easy for us to find your submission and leave a comment. Please turn word verification off as well.)
  • You can submit up to 3 entries for this challenge.
  • You can submit your creation(s) to other challenges — as many as you want.
  • Be a follower of our blog to qualify for the prize.
  • And lastly, have a great time creating your project! :-)
We’ll announce the winner and top picks on Thursday, January 2, at 12 noon PST here on the STAMPlorations™ blog and on the All About Scrapping page on Facebook. That’s it…we look forward to seeing what you create!

Spammers have been in full force lately so I had to turn comment moderation on. We love hearing from fellow crafters (not spammers), so your comment will be approved as soon as possible. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
