March Challenge - Theme and Sketch

Happy Friday, STAMPlorations friends! It's the first Friday of March which means the start of a new theme and/or sketch challenge here. Thank you to those of you who played in last month's challenge. We're going to announce the winner and top picks next Friday, February 10, together with all of last month's challenge and blog hop winners.

We'd love for you to create and link up your projects based on this month's theme, sketch, or both -- you've got the whole month of March to play :o)

Our theme is STAMPS & SPRING. Spring? Think flowers, butterflies, pastel colors, growth, Easter, bunnies...plenty of things you can associate with spring so have a go at it! If you end up with a spring-inspired card that's also clean and simple, make sure to link it up to the March CAS Card Challenge.

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

Have a look at the STAMPlorations girls' projects inspired by this month's theme and/or sketch!

WEI WEI (theme)

JULIE (Theme)

CHRIS (theme & sketch)

HELEN (theme)

LAURAJANE (theme and sketch)

SUCHI (theme)

BECCA (theme)


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 or will not be considered in the running for winner or top pick.)
  • 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 our main blog) to encourage others to play too. Please also display the challenge graphic (for the theme or the sketch or both) if possible. Blog entries not linking back to this challenge post will not be eligible to win and receive the corresponding prize.
  • Link up by March 31, 11:55 p.m. Pacific time.
  • Have fun creating your project(s)!

~ The STAMPlorations™ girls
