PLEASE READ ALL RULES BEFORE LINKING

Please remember you can use any stamps now for our challenge, but only one entry per person.  We will draw 2 random winners on the first week of our challenge in May from all those who played in the May challenges.

If you do not have a blog to link up to, please feel free to join our Stampotique page on Facebook here.  We have a photo album on there called SDC Challenge Photos that you can upload your photo there.  Once you have uploaded it there, go to your photo in that album and copy the URL to link on the Stampotique Designer's Challenge links.

We are no longer accepting creations using digi stamps.  These will be deleted, we appreciate those that play with us each week and we welcome those using rubber or clear stamps.


Please link DIRECTLY to your creation, not to your blog.  You MUST  include the challenge # (which can be found at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog) behind your name (any not linking directly to your creation AND having the challenge # will be deleted and not eligible for prize).   For example if I'm entering it would look like this-

We ask that if you have comment verification turned on, that you would consider turning this on and doing comment moderation instead.  

Please use Inlinkz below to link up your challenge.  

**Change to Stampotique submission rules:  You will now have until the first challenge of the following month to submit your entries-we will only have one Inlinkz per month; so today marks the start of the challenges for May and it will run through the close of our last challenge for May which will be June 2, 2015 at 12:00 p.m. EST**

SDC May Guest Designer



Hello Stampotique lovers,

My name is Yvonne Koops, I live near the sea and the beach in the Netherlands, together with my husband and two of our three sons.

I am happy, honoured and proud to be guest designer here with Stampotique.
All my life I have been engaged in doing creative things and I attended many courses in the past, such as textile arts, pottery, goldsmithing and making jewelry.

In 2009 I discovered stamping and a few years later I also got involved in Art Journaling and Mixed Media. About these I also attended lots of online workshops.

And then, in 2012  I discovered Stampotique….WOW, I was in love with all those crazy, funny and lovely stamps !!! And so I bought my first Stampotique : Angel.

And now I am collecting lots of more of them but my wish list is much longer, hihihi.
This year I made myself a promise to make and post every week the SDC and up to now I succeeded

And now I'm very curious about your projects for this month and also how you think about my projects.

XXX Yvonne.

Stop over and say "hi" to Yvonne here at her blog: http://www.yvonne1960.blogspot.nl/
********************************
My deepest apologies go out to Yvonne that I'm so behind in getting this posted-life got away from me and I didn't get it posted on the 1rst like we usually do.

SDC193: Polka Dots

Wanted to say a quick thank you to one of our designers and team members France who has been a wonderful addition to our team, but has made the tough decision to step down from the team to pursue some other avenues in her professional career.  We are excited to see what the future has in store for her and always will be looking forward to seeing her designs.

Sam Read is our hostess this week and she's got us thinking spots:

I included polka dots in a previous challenge and everyone who took part seemed to have such fun, I thought we could revisit them.  Have fun!
