December Challenge - Theme and Sketch

Happy Friday, crafty friends! It's the first Friday of the month, which means it's the start of our Theme and Sketch Challenge! We had a colorful and color-filled November gallery -- thank you so much for playing with us last month! Check back on December 10 for the November Winners post.

The girls are back and for December, we're doing STAMPS & BIG WORDS. We'd like to see big, bold sentiments in your projects. Or you can go with the sketch. You can also combine both in your project -- we dig that ;-)

If you play, make sure you include the graphic(s) in your post and link back to this challenge post in order to qualify for our prizes :o) Please also read our simple rules, which you'll find toward the end of this post.

And here's the sketch:

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

Inspired by the theme or sketch? Please just keep in mind these simple rules:
  • 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.
  • Link up to 6 entries and link up to as many other challenges as you want.
  • You must display the challenge graphic in your post (if linking from your blog) and link back to the challenge post (not just the main blog) in order to be eligible to win (and receive the corresponding prize).
  • Link up by December 31, 11:55 p.m. Pacific time.

  • The winner (as voted by the design team) receives a $15 gift certificate.
  • Three (3) randomly drawn crafters each receive a $5 gift certificate

Heads up! If you used at least one STAMPlorations product (digi or clear stamp, stencil, die, or a page from any of our coloring books), make sure to link it up to our Never-ending Anything Goes Challenge too for a chance to win more STAMPlorations products! We draw two winners every month :o) You may also want to check out our other challenges. You can find links to all our challenges at the top of the page for more inspiration and more opportunities to win prizes.
