Celebrating Our 150th Challenge

Hello everyone and thanks again for joining me on this Wednesday, today Stampotique is celebrating their 150th challenge!! How exciting is that?!

We are excited at Stampotique that our fans have helped us grow so much and that our stamps, challenges and Facebook page have become such a big hit. In honor of our excitement, and our 150th challenge over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog  is CELEBRATION. 
 We want you to create with celebration in mind, whether it's celebrating a birthday, anniversary, wedding, graduation or new baby...let's celebrate!

Not to put a damper on our celebration, but our team is bidding a few of our members farewell. Maria has been with the team and has shown us how talented she is not only as an artist but as a stamp designer. Tanja has only been with us a short while but we have enjoyed seeing her creations each week. We celebrate the opportunity we had to have them on our design team and wish them the best.

We will NOT be having a new call for designers as our current designers will all be remaining for another term. We are happy to say we are looking for 4 new guest designers and so along with this fun challenge, we will pick some of our guest designers from those who are participating in our 150th challenge. Along with the chance to be a guest designer, we'll also be picking a random winner for a $30 gift certificate for Stampotique stamps.

Can't wait to see how you celebrate this week!

For my creation I used Archival inks and a stencil to make a bright and cheerful background


I then used Stampotique Stamps


All by artist Daniel Torrente 
I colored them all with colics and cut them out. I cut one side of the cupcake and put it in Froggie's hand to make her look like she took a bite

I created the Celebrate word with a die and black card stock




Thanks again for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful week

Your color palette definitely calls out CELEBRATE, Claudine, and I love it! Great use of the stencil to create interest in your background, and Froggie looks totally awesome!
