When I started this challenge blog, I told you that at the end of each month I would draw one entrant from all the cards that month to win a prize.    I put all the entries in a bowl and had my husband pull one out.(Drum roll, please)  February's winner is : Sharna Russell.  Please email me with your address and I will get your prize out to you in the next few days.
Congrats and Happy Stamping!

Good morning,  Thank you everyone who participated in our challenge last week.  All of the entries were awesome but here are our top three:

Ladies, if you would like, please copy the badge at the left and display it on your blog to let the world know you made our top three.

Also, just a reminder that during the first week of March we will randomly draw from all February entries and that person will win some Stampin' Up! stuff.

Now on with this week's challenge.............................


Hello again, friends.  Hope your week has been great!  We were away on the weekend at a hockey tournament so we had a little break.  And it's a good thing since next weekend we have a big sale at work and it should be crazy busy. (Enough with the small talk).

I am very pleased with the response to Try Stampin' On Tuesday and I want to thank everyone who visits us and who enters our challenges.  I really appreciate your support.

Now.........On with this week's challenge.  The sketch is a very simple one but, I am sure you will agree, the possibilities are endless.  I can hardly wait to see what you come up with.
Here it is.  Feel free to change the dimensions, the ratios, anything you choose.  This is simply a stepping off place for your creativity.

And here are the examples the team came up with......I am sure they will inspire you!

As you can see, the four of us have completely different ideas and I am sure you will have as well.

Until later,
Happy Stamping!

Good morning, everyone!

Hope your Tuesday is good.  Ours is supposed to be very cold again.  Sure hoping it isn't.  I am ready for spring.  But I have still got some recuperating to do from the flu (3rd episode this year) and some stamping to do so it really doesn't matter what it is like outside.  But on with the sketch...................
Here it is and I hope you see lots of possibilities for it.

And here is your inspiration from our talented team:

I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Until later,
Happy Stamping!

Winner of a free Stampin' Up stamp set (randomly drawn) is #6  Yvonne Walker.  Yvonne, please email me your real address and I will mail you your prize.

Our First Top Three

Wow what a success!  I figured the first week I would get maybe 3 entries-----was I surprised!  Thank you to all who entered.  The cards were gorgeous and it was a hard decision picking the top three but here they are:

Ladies, if you would, please copy and paste the "Top 3" badge from the side and display it on your blog.  Hope to see you next time!

Hi everyone!
Welcome to the very first challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenges. We have a sketch for you today and some awesome examples from the design team - My Stampin' Friends.

Before we start, let me introduce you to the team- Sandi, Kristen and Tracey.  These are three talented ladies and I am sure that you will be inspired by their amazing work.  You will find their pictures at the side and, if you click on them, you will be transported to their blogs.

Since this is the very first challenge, I will offer a prize to a randomly selected entrant.  Next Monday night at midnight, I will use a random number generator to choose a winner.  That person will receive a Stampin' Up! stamp set.

As well, each  week, the team will vote for the top 3 projects and these will be posted for all to see.  The first week of every month, all the entries from the previous month will go into a drawing for a Stampin' Up! prize. 

Well, enough of the technical stuff and on to the fun!
Here is Sketch Challenge #1.  Since this is Valentines week, I am asking that you piggyback this sketch with a Valentines theme.

And here to inspire you are the examples from the team:




When you finish, just upload a picture of your project along with the blog post where we can find it using the link below.  We look forward to seeing all the great ideas you come up with.  And once again, thank you so much for playing along with us.
Until next time, Happy Stamping!
