SDC#3 Spring Has Sprung!

I'm very excited this week as its my turn to host the third Stampotique Designer's Challenge.

Here in the UK the sun has started to shine and the daffodils are making an appearance so I've decided on 'Spring Has Sprung' for the theme. I hope that nature is springing back to life where you are and giving you that feel good factor...and if not (I know the snow is still hanging around for some of you) maybe joining in the fun here will help make up for it.

As its another 'first challenge of the month', we are back to using any stamp manufacturer, but if you have any Stampotique Originals stamps then it would of course be wonderful to see what you can come up with using those.

Below you can see a fabulously wide and varied collection of ideas submitted by the members of the Stampotique Design team. By clicking on to any of the images it will take you directly to their blog.

If you are uploading to SCS or another site please use SDC3 as your keyword. Upload your direct link to your card (or what ever it is you've could be an altered something or a 3D item, anything you like) on Mr. Linky below. Links that do not directly link to your challenge item maybe deleted. Please leave your link by 6pm EST Tuesday March 23rd 2010.

One participant will be randomly selected to win a $15 gift certificate to spend on stamps of their choice at Stampotique Originals store.

The SDC#2 gift certificate winners are Penny Bearcroft and
Joanne Wardle you can see her challenge card HERE

Congratulations!! Happy shopping! Please contact Carol at to claim your prize.

The team and I are all really looking forward to seeing all your contributions. Also please don't forget that the new Stampotique Designer's Blog is being updated regularly and is well worth checking out :0)

Featured Stampers: SDC #2

On behalf of the Stampotique Design Team, we want to thank you again for making the color challenge this week such a success.  We have so much fun seeing the wonderful displays of creativity you all have, it's amazing to see the same stamp being used in two completely different ways.  

Before each new challenge, the hostess will be choosing her favorite three favorite creations and this week was my choosing.  This was soooooooooooooooooooo hard to do!  I've gone through all the submissions so many times and each creation had elements I really liked.

Without further ado here were the three I chose as my favorites from the color challenge, in no particular order:


I love the background of her card, and her pairing of the images with the sentiment she added reminded me of ZZ Top.

The colors on Alix' card really just POP out to me and how can you not love her hilarious "Get A Head" card?


I have to say this clean card, with just touches of the color really stood out for me.  Really makes me Dream BIG!!!

Congratulations to our featured stampers this week, if you would like a Featured Stamper's Logo for your blog, please send me an e-mail at khowardga at and I will be happy to send it to you.
Thanks to everyone for playing this week, and if you are still wanting to join us, you have until Tuesday evening to submit your entry.

Our new challenge will be posted at midnight on Wednesday, can't wait for you all to join us and see what you create!  This next challenge will be using any stamps, but of course we *love* to you use your Stampotique Originals stamps.
