Welcome to the Use Your Stamps Challenge

You are welcome to sign up any time during the month- however you must complete & post 3 projects this month to be entered in the drawing.

All stamp projects are welcome – layouts, cards, tags, canvas, other crafts- but you must enter 3 (three) projects to complete the challenge & you must have completed them in JULY.

All projects MUST include something STAMPED using: acrylic, rubber, a carved potato, wine cork, metal, bubble wrap- ANYTHING you can “stamp” with onto a project counts. Basically- you put ink (or paint) on it then press it onto your project- it counts as being stamped. This includes heat embossing but not pressed embossing such as the Cuttlebug or BigShot, etc. UNLESS you have inked it & used it to “stamp” the ink onto your project.

PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU STAMPED on your project when you post as a photo sometimes makes it hard to tell.


Twist: stamp Background- bursts, geometric, splats, grunge, etc. Those stamps that add texture and fill to your project. Use a cork or some saran wrap, to create it if you don’t have any stamps that qualify. Applying ink to something and then placing it on your page all counts.
***Note- doing the twist gets your name entered twice into the drawing. But you must also complete 3 projects first for this to count.
PS: you only need to do the twist on 1 project to count as completing the twist
Don't forget to put that you did the twist & what it is when you post your project here or I will miss giving you credit

Those who complete 3 projects in JULY 2018 will be entered into a random drawing. The winner will receive a stamp set with a value up to $17.95. The winner will be determined via Random.org. Invite your friends & dust off those stamps you keep meaning to use.

If we have 100 entries I'll do a second drawing for those who created & entered 4 or more projects in JULY.

Remember to save this thread to your favorites for easy access.
Please CHECK IN at least once a week so I know you are still playing.

4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab at the top on the left side of the layout.
