Brand New Challenge!

Come on and play along!

I am so excited about this new challenge! It will be so fun to have tons of 100% current samples shown by set. Don't you think? Here is the basic idea of the challenge. The challenge will be called Technostamper's Super Set Sampler Challenge (T3SC1). In honor of my love of Stampin Up stamps I will be doing this new challenge. The idea is that each week I will pick a set and make two cards with the set to start us off and hopefully inspire you to use the set too. I realize that you will not own all the sets that I do but you will get tons of fabulous ideas to share with your friends/customers. And of course you may fall in love with the set and realize you HAVE to have it! So I hope that you will play along on week's that you have the featured set, and visit on week's that you don't. Soon we will have so many wonderful ideas to use with our sets. The catch to this is that ALL SAMPLES MUST BE 100% CURRENT STAMPIN UP! SAMPLES. It is a challenge after all but I know you are all up for it. Are you in? I will be giving a $5 voucher each week for SU product --redeemable through me. You can accumulate them up to $25 before spending. So you will want to play as often as you can to earn lots of free stuff of your choice.

To be eligible to win the gift voucher you must do the following....

  1. Use 100% current Stampin Up products (if it is current by you and not in the US you will need to state that in your post.
  3. Post a direct link to your sample on Mister Linky below
  4. Post by midnight Tues. night. (EST.)
  5. The sample does NOT have to be stamped now it can be one you already have done.
I will do a re-cap of all of the samples and announce the winner right before I post the new challenge. The links will be kept open though so you can add to them any time you want--you just will not be in the contest if you are after the deadline. For this week--T3SC1 challenge we are going to use ......

Annimal Stories
This was one of the first sets I purchased from the new catalog and I have only used one stamp one time so thought this was a good one to start with.

Here are my samples.
I used the SCS sketch challenge for today too! And of course I had to use chalks on one to fit the Latenightstampers challenge-only so much time to fit all of these challenges in!

I had so much fun with this simple card. I don't do much with Halloween but thought this little guy would be cute--not scary!
Stamps: Animal Stories, Cheap Talk, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Whisper White, Razzleberry Lemonade DP, Holiday Lounge DP

This next one is for a little guy who is having a birthday this week! This is such a cute set, I combined it with the Tall Tales DP

I love your usage of the Holiday Lounge paper in this new unique way. I was thinking only December, December, December! I never thought to use it for Halloween. Thank you for opening my eyes to new possibilities!
