Stampotique Design Challenge Blog Hop!


Mary and Hare by Jill Penney and Daniel Torrente for Stampotique Originals

Join us for Stampotique's Magical Mystery Tour today. Why a Magical Mystery Tour? Comment on all the blogs and along the way we have 2 mystery prizes to give away.

If you have arrived here from Vicki at the Summerthyme Studio blog then you are in the right place, if not, you may want to begin at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog and begin your tour from there.

A few weeks ago, Valerie had us recycling and this week she has us cleaning house again!She's challenging us to dig in our stash to see how many scraps we can use up in our projects. Just about anything qualifies as a scrap - as long as you're utilizing a piece or part of something that you generated before but never used up... it counts! So what will it be? Bits of an old master board or freaky background? Leftover pieces of your favorite designer paper? Part of an old piece of grunge board? Fragments of a previously inked image? Or the remnants of some odd embellishment? Let's see just how creative you can be!

As you can see I made a tag using up some of my tiny scraps of paper (mostly Basic Gray) by overlapping them and stitching them onto a large manilla tag. I also 'save' tiny scraps of leftover sheet music and vintage text, so they made their way onto the tag too! I stamped Mary and Hare onto a leftover scrap of white paper and coloured them with my *new* prismas :-) I managed to find a random quote about a hare in an old and well-used quote book that I found in a second hand book shop.

As you make your way through the tour make sure you comment on each and every post. There will be 2 prize winners chosen randomly amongst the blogs. For some additional chances to win another prize join us with our "Scraps" Challenge using your Stampotique stamps for your chance at a $30 gift certificate for Stampotique stamps and at being our August Guest Designer, see our blog for additional information.

Our tour will end on June 28th and the winner of the 2 tour prizes will be announced on the blog on June 29th.

Now, jump on over to Joanne at Made by Joanne blog to see what kind of scraps she has used on our Magical Mystery Tour.

Don't forget, it's not too late to enter my free give away for a chance to win my Art Journaling DVDs. Look here for more info, you have until Friday to enter! *EDIT: This competition has now closed *
