Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #20

Welcome to our 20th bi-weekly sketch challenge! Here’s the sketch for the next couple of weeks. It’s open to interpretation. Feel free to change the orientation of the sketch, use different shapes, add other elements to suit the type of paper craft you’re making, and so on — just make sure the sketch is recognizable in your submission(s). You can use stamps by other companies to create projects that you enter to our challenges, although if you have STAMPlorations stamps in your stash, we'd be tickled if you use them!



PRIZE
The sketch challenges are sponsored by our sister shop, All About Scrapping. The winner gets to pick 3 DIGITAL products from the shop — any combination of printable sheetsPhotoshop templates, and digital paper packs. The winner will also be invited to be a Guest Designer in next month's sketch challenge.

A TWIST IN OUR CHALLENGES
Participate in all 3 challenges we host this month and you'll be in the running to win this month's prize: $15 gift certificate to spend on the STAMPlorations shop.


INSPIRATION PROJECTS

Our guest designer is someone many of you may already know. We're happy to welcome Darnell Knauss! She was our sketch challenge #17 winner. Please stop by her blog and be prepared to smile!

Guest Designer
"Hello! My name is Darnell Knauss (pronounced Ka-nouse). My blog is djkardkreations.comI started this hobby in 2002 after attending my first Stampin' Up! party and I have never looked back. After ten years making cards for family and friends inside the disgusting garage, we had the backyard relandscaped and I became the envied occupant of my sweet crafty Playhouse. I am having the time of my life sharing my cards, playing with words, and making friends with delightful people from all over the world who provide me with endless inspiration! "

And here are the inspiration projects by the STAMPlorations design team. We'd love it if you'd visit our blogs and say hi!











READY TO PLAY?
  • Create a new project -- card, tag, mini album/scrapbook cover, layout, home decor item, or any paper craft -- on ANY THEME using the sketch as your guide. Any style is welcome — CAS, shabby chic, vintage, grunge, and so on. Post your creation on your blog and submit it by 11:55 p.m. PDT on Friday, September 26. Don’t have a blog? You can post a photo of your project on your Pinterest page, Flickr, or any public online gallery.
  • You must use stamps (rubber, cling, clear, digi — from any company) in your creation(s).
  • Copy the link of your blog entry where you have your project posted and enter it to the linky found at the end of this post. Remember to link directly to your blog post, not just your blog URL. (This will make it easy for us to find your submission and leave a comment. Please turn off word verification as well.)
  • Please include a text link back to this post in your blog post, as well as display the sketch, to encourage other paper crafters to participate.
  • You can submit up to 3 entries for this challenge.
  • You can submit your creation(s) to other challenges — as many as you want — except to other sketch challenges for obvious reasons!
  • Be a follower of our blog to qualify for the prize.
  • And lastly, have a great time creating your project! :-)

We’ll announce the winner and top picks on Sunday, September 28, here on the STAMPlorations™ blog and on the All About Scrapping page on Facebook. That’s it…we look forward to seeing what you create!

~ The STAMPlorations™ girls
