Thank You Challenge

Happy Friday!

It's STAMP SOMETHING challenge day! This week we are launching our second challenge, the theme is Thank You. We figured what better way to say thank you for all the support these past couple weeks than to have a thank you challenge.

We were thrilled by the outcome of our first challenge. It was great to see how many people participated in the fun. The creations we saw were terrific! We so appreciate you all sharing your art with us! Thank you!

I made these 3x3 note cards and a matching box to hold them all as my sample project. It was fun making cards and a 3D item. I rarely do that! I love the Afternoon Tea DSP and my Essence of Love stamps, they work great together.

For the box, I used a piece of cardstock 4 1/4" X 8 1/2" and scored it at 1" 4 1/4" and 5 1/4" the long way and then at 1" on the short side. Then just cut the short score lines, fold and tape together. I used a piece of DSP to cover the box and to hide the taped seam. For the final touches, I added a piece of wide chocolate grosgrain ribbon and some styled silver Hodgepodge Hardware and a sentiment. The sentiment is from the set Short and Sweet.

The cards are each 3x3 cardstock decorated with more DSP and some punches and scrap paper. The cardstock colors are Soft Sky and Groovy Guava. I stamped the butterfly from Essence of Love and the thank you sentiment from Short and Sweet on each card to keep them all similar.

If you'd like to join in the fun of our challenge this week and be entered for a chance at some blog candy, just make a Thank You themed project and post a comment on the challenge blog post on STAMP SOMETHING with a link to your work. We will draw a blog candy winner on Thursday evening at 7pm ET.

Thanks for looking! Hop on over to STAMP SOMETHING and check out the fabulous projects made by our design team! Hope you'll give our Thank You challenge a go! Have a great weekend. Happy Stamping!! :)
