January Challenge - Theme and Sketch

Hey, STAMP friends! It's the first Friday of the month. How's your 2019 going so far? Today marks the start of the first Theme and Sketch Challenge of 2019. Thank to all of you who played last month and filled the gallery with your beautiful creations! Check back on January 10 for the December winners post to see if you're one of the winners.

The girls are back and this month, we're doing STAMPS & ANIMALS. We'd like to see projects featuring animals big or small. You can also just go with the sketch. Or combine both in your projects -- 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 January 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.

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)
