CUTplorations March Challenge

Well hello there, March! Hope you've got some better weather in store for all of us... But until then, did someone say "cake"?

I chose this photo in a nod to the late Kate Spade, but love that in addition to the polka dot plate and gold fork there's also coffee!!! And red velvet cake!!! Soooo many ways you could be inspired by this to have some fun with your next card creation using die cuts, don't you think? 

BTW, remember to watch for the winners' post on the 10th to see if you were chosen as one of the winners from our February challenge. 

If you play, make sure you include the graphic below 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.

Can't wait to see how our photo inspires you. Let's see what inspired the DT. 





Inspired to join us? Link up below! Please follow our rules:
  • Create a project inspired by the inspiration photo for the current month. You can create any type of project -- card, ATC, altered project, mixed media, art journal page, scrapbook page, etc. -- but make sure you use die cuts (any brand) and at least one STAMPlorations product. (A STAMPlorations product can be a stamp, stencil, thin metal die, or even a page from our coloring book. If you don't own a STAMPlorations product, you can still join by using the free digital stamp we are offering here.)
  • You must display the challenge graphic in your post (if linking from your blog) and link back to the challenge post post (not just the main blog) in order to be eligible to win (and receive the corresponding prize).
  • Link up by March 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.
