Stamp Something's New Design Team Members

Hello All!

Sorry for the delay in announcing our new design team members. We had so many wonderful entries, it took longer than we thought it would to go over them all and make our choices. We have made the decision and all of the girls chosen have accepted.

Before we announce the team we wanted to thank you ALL for trying out. It was an extremely hard choice to narrow down dozens and dozens and dozens of entries to only 5 people. Please know that you ALL did a fabulous job with your creations and it was lots of fun reviewing them. We appreciate the time and effort put into making your projects for our design team call.

Congratulations to our new design team members! They are....

Giovana Smith
Jenni Hamilton
Katie Renz
Lynn Weiss
Michelle Luton-Olson

We hope you will help us in welcoming these girls to our team. We all look forward to the future challenges and sharing our creations with you. We hope you'll all continue to join in the challenges each week and stamp something with us!

Have a great afternoon! We'll be back on Thursday evening with the winner of the mystery blogoversary candy and then see you all here on Friday morning for a new Stamp Something challenge!

Happy stamping! :)

We are offering some blogaversary blowout candy!

We are also still searching for 4 new DT members to start working with us in June. If you are interested in being considered for a spot on the Stamp Something Team, please just simply add "DT" after your name in the linky feature, no need to double post. WE WILL BE CHOOSING OUR 4 NEW MEMBERS MAY 29TH, SO IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN A DT SPOT PLEASE ENTER PRIOR TO MAY 29TH, the blog candy contest will continue until the winner is announced on Thursday, June 4th.

Evening everyone!!

Thanks to everyone who participated this week! It was a happy and sad challenge as we were happy to see every one's gorgeous creations, but so sad to see Cindy go. And a big thanks to Cindy for her year of amazing work and for donating some fabulous blog candy.

For everyone who entered the Design Team portion of the challenge, keep posted as we'll be deciding after the next 3 challenges. Enter as many times as you wish throughout the month:)

Something For a Mom ~ CHALLENGE

Happy May!

We're celebrating our blogoversary all month long here on Stamp Something. We can not believe a year has gone by since we posted our very first challenge! We've had so much fun seeing every one's interpretations of the challenges and meeting lots of new friends! We hope you have had as much fun as we have and are looking forward to even more this year!!

To celebrate, during the whole month of May, we are spotlighting members of our Design Team, offering super yummy blog candy, and creating extra fun challenges!!

Why are we spotlighting the DT you may ask?? Well, 4 members are leaving us at the end of this month and we couldn't think of a better way to say goodbye than to have all of you CASE one of their fabulous DT projects. You can find their work in the samples posts in our archives. Each week we will pick a different DT member to CASE and a theme to go along with your card.

ETA: We are defining CASE as to Copy and Share Everything or Copy and Selectively Edit. Basically use one of Cindy's fabulous creations as inspiration for your own card. Your putting your own spin on her card. You might change the colors or stamp set. But people will be able to recognize the similarities between the two. If you look at the DT samples on their blogs, you'll be able to see the card they created and Cindy's orginal card.

Because we are losing 4 members from our original team, we are looking for 4 more to join us! If you would like your CASE to be considered in our hunt for a new DT, simply type "DT" after your name in the Mr. Linky feature. If you just want to play along for your chance at some yummy blog candy, just leave your name! Sound Fun??

This week we are spotlighting Cindy!!! Please choose any of Cindy's DT work from the past year and CASE away!!! The theme for your CASE is Something For a Mom in honor of the Mother's Day holiday next weekend. Cindy has generously donated the candy this week! The random winner of this challenge will receive a 15$ gift certificate to Stampin' Up! through Cindy!! You can pick and choose the products you'd like to win from the Spring/Summer Catalog or the new Occasions Mini up to 15$!!!!!

For your chance at Stampin' Up! goodies, please leave a direct link to your CASE in the Mr. Linky Feature below by 7pm ET Thursday, May 7! We will announce the blog candy winner shortly after. The 4 DT members will be chosen throughout the month and announced the last week in May so they can start for our first challenge in June!!

Have fun CASEing a Cindy Something!!!
