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 NOVEMBER.

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 Trees- stick tress, leafy trees, evergreen trees, etc. If it’s a tree, it 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 NOVEMBER 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 NOVEMBER.

How did I miss this challenge.....I had been watching for it but then I have not done any stamping on my layouts yet this month. Now that I think about it I am not sure if I used any stamps, will have to check.

Made an embellie swap box for challenge and included a Julie Nutting stamped doll to represent each of her grandkids. So each doll and each piece of outfit was stamped, fussy cut, and then glued on. Cutting and gluing the tiny pockets was NOT fun.

The box and contents are in my gallery.

Hi everyone!

Used Char's CTMH stamp/die set for ship and waves. Decided to make similar pocket page for each day with facing page for the card. Used plain black cardstock so focus is on card.

There is a ton of stamping on this page, I actually used white cardstock for the base and stamped and brayered over it to create a patterned paper. I listed all the other stamping in the gallery post.

Finally got a chance to scrapbook and wanted to post my layout, but I don't see a December Use Your Stamps challenge. Are you taking the month off, Char? I remember seeing your hubby is deploying, but didn't see any updates after that, so would understand if that is occupying all your time right now.
