Take It Make It Challenge: May

Welcome to the launch of our May Challenge!

As you might remember, this year our challenge is alternating between 'Take A Stamp', and 'Take A Technique'....and this month our challenge is 'Take A Stamp'!
Which means you have total creative freedom, it's a 'make anything as long as there are stamps used' month!

May Challenge:
'Take A Stamp' 
Anything Goes
(but remember you MUST use a stamp somewhere on your project!)

Show us how creative you can be...get your stamps out and share your cards, journal pages, layouts, 3D assemblage or whatever else takes your fancy!

*** Sadly, quite a few entries last month did not follow the guidelines, so they could not be considered for a prize. PLEASE remember to only include just the one project in your blog posts, we just want to see the project you are entering, no others! Full guidelines can be found underneath the banner at the top of the page.***

We have two prizes on offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize.This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for May is

WOW! Embossing Powders

WOW Embossing Powders are UK suppliers of a truly massive selection of embossing powders from fine detail through to ultra thick, from metallics to pearlescents and fluorescents! WOW also manufacture a fabulous selection of silicone moulds, perfect for creating 3D embellishments, and some great stamp designs too!

The prize for this months randomly chosen winner is this fabulous gift set of vintage powders:
(don't worry, yours will come with the lids firmly on!)
and also this gorgeous lace design stamp:

That stamp will look amazing embossed... actually, amazing without embossing as well! Our randomly drawn prize winner will be a very lucky person!

Our second winner is our Design Winner. This winner is chosen by our DT, who all vote for their favourite design from all of the entries. This winner will have their winning project published in Craft Stamper Magazine, (with a 2 page spread of their very own!), they will have a GDT slot for an upcoming challenge, and will also feature in their very own Winners Profile blog post! 

I hope the prizes have given you all an incentive to win...... and how about some eye candy from the DT to give you some beautifully stamped inspiration!
We have three new DT members debuting today...please show them some love, their first projects are STUNNING!
