December Challenge - Theme and Sketch!

Hello, fellow creatives! It's the last month of 2015 and we've got one last fun challenge before we say goodbye to 2015. First, we'd like to thank those who played in last month's challenge. We'll announce the winner and top picks in a couple of days.

Now onto this month's challenge. We'd love for you to create and link up your projects based on this month's themesketch, or both -- you've got the whole month of December to play :o)

For December, our theme is STAMPS & A HOLIDAY.

And here's our fun sketch to get inspired by as well:

We've got prizes for the winner and top picks as voted by the design team. See them here.


This month, we have two (2) talented cardmakers guest designing. For this post, we have the super awesome Darnell Knauss. You'll meet our other guest designer, the very talented Rahmat Gouse, when we feature her in our mid-month challenge post on December 18. I hope you can check out the blogs of our guest designers. You'll not be disappointed and we're thrilled to have them here month! :o)

Please keep in mind our simple guidelines:
  • Link up any type of project(s) based on the theme, the sketch, or both.
  • You must use stamps in your project(s) -- rubber, clear, or digi from any company. Non-STAMPlorations stamps are OK (although please don't link up a project you've created for the sole purpose of promoting another company; those projects will be deleted.)
  • Link up to 6 entries and link up to as many other challenges as you want.
  • Link directly to your blog post, not to your main blog. (This makes it easy for us to find and comment on your entry.)
  • If you have word verification turned on, our design team may not be able to leave a comment, so please consider turning it off.
  • Link back to this challenge post (not just our main blog) to encourage others to play too. Entries not linking back to our challenge will be deleted.
  • Link up by Thursday, December 31, 11:55 p.m. Pacific (GMT-8).
  • Have fun creating your project(s)!

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)
