Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #27

Welcome to our 27th bi-weekly sketch challenge! This challenge is a super special one because we have the STAMPlorations girls in our brand-spankin' new fabulous Challenge Design Team taking over the challenges starting today! Can we have some fist-pumps and cheers going for these ladies? Their projects will blow you away -- and already I'm excited to see what they'll create for future sketch and monthly challenges!

Here’s the sketch for the next couple of weeks. It’s open to interpretation. Feel free to change the orientation of the sketch, use different shapes, add other elements to suit the type of paper craft you’re making, and so on — just make sure the sketch is recognizable in your submission(s). You can use stamps by other companies to create projects that you enter to our challenges but please do not use our challenges for the sole purpose of promoting another stamp company. If you have our stamps in your stash, we'd be tickled if you use them -- and we've tweaked the prize a bit to encourage you to use our stamps if you have them!

Prize: 3 digi stamps
+ Guest Designer spot in Sketch Challenge #30

Top picks
Guest designer spot in Sketch Challenge #30

Winner and top picks will receive a personalized STAMPlorations guest designer watermark and a personalized guest designer badge to display on their blogs.

Play in all 3 challenges we host this month (February Challenge, Sketch #27, and Sketch #28) and you'll be in the running to win a STAMPlorations stamp and stencil pack valued at $10. The winner can also opt for a $10 gift certificate to the shop if she prefers.

We have three talented guest designers joining us: Deepti (sketch #24 winner) and Joy and Mynn (sketch #24 top picks). We're so glad to have you, ladies! Check out the beautiful cards they made based on the sketch and when you have moment, please stop by their blog to leave them some love!

  • Create any paper craft on any theme using the sketch as your guide. Any style is welcome. Link up your project from your blog (or Pinterest board, Flickr account, Splitcoast Stampers gallery) to our gallery by 11:55 p.m. PST (GMT -8) on Friday, February 13.
  • You must use stamps in your project(s) -- rubber, clear, or digi from any company. You do not need to use STAMPlorations stamps to enter this challenge, but please keep this one important rule in mind: if you are on the design team of another stamp company, please don't use our challenges to link up projects that you make for the sole purpose of promoting or advertising your company. Such entries will be deleted. You are welcome to play as long as your project/post is not solely promotional in nature. If you are on the DT of a regular challenge blog (not affiliated with a stamp company), please feel free to link up your projects, including those where you use images provided by whoever is sponsoring your current challenge, if they fit our challenge.
  • 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 off word verification as well.)
  • Include a text link back to this challenge post in your blog post to encourage other paper crafters to play too. Entries not linking back to our challenge will be deleted.
  • You can submit a maximum of 3 entries for this challenge, and link up to as many other challenges as you want.
  • Follow our blog.
  • And lastly, have a great time creating your project (s)!We'll announce the winner and top picks on Tuesday, February 17, 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!
