CUTplorations October Challenge

It's official, STAMPlorations friends! Today we begin our new CUTplorations monthly challenge here on the blog.!

We certainly enjoyed CASEing other designers' cards at CASEplorations, and hope you did too, but starting this month the Inspiration DT is going to be playing with the wonderful new line of CUTplorations dies. And we hope you'll join us! How? Use our inspiration photo and die cuts (any brand). Just be sure to use at least one STAMPlorations product on your project. Cards, tags, scrapbook pages, mixed media projects ... all are welcome. Don't have any STAMPlorations products yet? You can always find a free digi here to use.

Meet our inspiration photo for October.

What kind of vibe are you getting from the photo? Cool and foggy fall morning? Cars and traffic? Neon lights? Black? Watercolors? How will it inspire you?

Let's see how it inspired the DT...

So, can't wait to see your projects! The DT will select three top picks from the gallery to receive a winner's badge and one random winner will receive her pick of any two of the CUTplorations word dies used by the DT in today's post. Don't forget, when using STAMPlorations products, hook up to the never-ending Anything Goes Challenge too!

We look forward to seeing your projects in the gallery below. 
Please check out the CUTplorations challenge rules here. The linky below is open until the end of the day October 31st. We look forward to seeing you here.
