Something with Your Favorite Layout or Sketch ~ CHALLENGE

Welcome to Friday everyone and to a new challenge here at Stamp Something! Thanks again to all the fabulous entries in last week's Favorite Colors and Papers challenge. Beautiful work! A BIG thanks again to Doodle Palace for sponsoring and another round of congrats to our Top 5 Stampers!

This week we are continuing with our favorites month and going with Favorite Layouts or Sketches! You can use a layout that you've created or one that you found somewhere and just love using. You can make a card or a scrapbook page and feel free to combine this challenge with other current challenges!

Our sponsor this week is, Gina from Your Special Delivery! Here's a bit about Your Special

Gina says, "Your Special Delivery digital craft site is a new concept that allows talented crafters to display and sell their own digital stamps, papers, craft sheets, scrapbook files, and much more via a unique designers page.

It promises to become a valuable resource for crafters to view and purchase different styles of work for their own craft projects. So much more than a digital store which includes a forum, gallery, freebie page, and a page dedicated to promoting small artistic businesses."

Gina has generously donated 5 of her digital images from Handcrafted on Your Special Delivery. How awesome is that?! One of the great things about digis is that you can resize for your project, like this gift tag I designed using Gina's Friday's child image.

For your chance to win, please provide a direct link to your new creation using the Mr. Linky feature below by 7pm EST, next Thursday, October 1st. We will draw one winner at random to receive this prize along with also choosing our Top 5 Stampers!

In other news. We are saying farwell to one of our fabulous DT members today. Lynn Weiss is stepping down at the end of the month. We will miss being inspired by her projects each week. Best of luck to you Lynn!!! We'll miss you!!!

Happy creating with your favorite sketch!

Something with your favorite colors or papers~CHALLENGE

Happy Friday everyone!!! Here we are again at another favorites challenge! Can you believe it??? I think it was split last week, a lot of you thought favorite embellishments was easy, but many of you (me included) just couldn't pick a favorite!!!

Let's see what everyone thinks of this week's challenge.....FAVORITE COLORS OR PAPERS. Use your favorite color, or color combo, or favorite designer paper in your project. What do you think easy or too hard to choose???

Before we move on to the DT samples I want to give a huge thank you to Elaine from Quixotic Paperie for sponsoring last week and congratulate our top 5! It was a very tough choice for the team, did you see all those fab entries!!!

This week we welcome Doodle Palace as our sponsor!!

Hi and welcome to Doodle Palace! Our names are Dee and Robin, and we have created this great company because we LOVE cardmaking, stamping, and scrapbooking and we want to share our digital creations with you. All of our digital images are first hand drawn and then go through a tedious process of creating them in a digital format. We have a great selection of digital stamps so far, and we can’t wait to show you the new ones yet to come! Be sure to check back frequently as we add new images weekly!

Dee and Robin are providing blog candy too!!!! Our random winner this week can choose 3 images from the doodle palace shop!!! You have until 7pm ET Thursday, September 24 to enter a NEW project using a direct link in the Mr. Linky feature below!!! Please be sure you are using the linky and not just leaving comments on the posts. We don't always see the comments in time and therefore your name isn't in the draw for the blog candy or our Top 5.

Check out the next post for the favorite colors of the DT.

Have fun stamping!!!

Something with your Favorite Stamp -CHALLENGE

Happy Friday All!!!

What a terrific turnout we had last week!! Thanks to all of you who entered the challenge and thanks to Wendy from Digital Delights for donating a fabulous prize!!! Also, congrats to our first Top 5 Stamp Something Favorite Stampers!!!

September at Stamp Something is "Favorites Month!" All month long, the challenges are about favorites and the team will be choosing the Stamp Something top 5 Favorite Stampers each week.

This week we'd like to see you use your FAVORITE STAMP OR STAMP SET and as and added bonus try to also use some punches or die cutting tools on your project as well. We know this one will be harder than it seems, how can you pick just one favorite stamp?? So good luck with this one!!

In addition to naming our top 5 favorite stampers, we also have a prize for our random winner!!! Our sponsor this week is Christian Paper Crafts and Cindy Coutts. Cindy is generously donating one set of Label Nestabilities, which the random winner can choose herself. Pretty great huh! Cindy has also joined us this week as a guest designer so be sure to check out her card along with the DT cards in the post below.

If you've never heard of Christian Paper Crafts, they are a community for passionate Christian crafters. They have a magazine, blog, forum, gallery, design team, and a section dedicated to Christian faith topics.

Right now CPC has some special events going on, including a membership drive until tomorrow at midnight and whoever refers the most people will win a prize of a newly released stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs. Next week they will have a posting challenge and the member who makes the highest amount of posts will win a newly released stamp set from ODBD. Since the contest is a posting contest, another surprise is a prize with a twist on it that has something to do with the word “post” that the winner will receive as well. Sounds like a lot of fun happening over at Christian Paper Crafts!

Now, we have an optional piece to the challenge this week, which we hope many of you will help us with. My 13 year old neighbor was seriously injured in a boating accident and as a result has lost part of her arm. If you can, please make your card with Paige in mind and mail it to her at the hospital or mail it to me to hand deliver, we know this would help to brighter her day and lift her spirits during her recovery.

I have a post on my blog right HERE with all the details about mailing, the accident, and some blog candy. If you cannot mail a card at this time, helping us by just spreading the word about my card drive would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much. :)

Have fun stamping with your favorite set!!
