STAMPOTIQUE DESIGNERS' CHALLENGE 176 WEEK 1: ANYTHING GOES FOR THE MONTH!

Kim Howard is our Stampotique Design Team Coordinator, a Design Team member, and is also our hostess for the month of December! December is a busy time with friends and family, so Kim has given the Design Team and you a bit of a break and choosen one theme for the entire month.  Here's her challenge:
This is our last challenge for the year, and it will run the whole month of December.  Our theme is an easy one, so show us your best work using *Anything Goes" as your theme.   
For this month *only,* you will have the opportunity to enter this challenge 5times (one for each week) which = 5 chances to win the random $30 giftcertificate for Stampotique stamps. 
We hope to see a lot of you entering!
For the first week, I have chosen to embrace December and make a Christmas card.  If you are or have been a scrapbooker, you likely have 6" x 6" paper pads lying around.  In searching through my stash, I was able to find such a paper pad with a Christmas theme from which I could make my card.  A couple of "accessories" lying around and the card base was ready for some stamping.  Next came the Smitten Moustache Monsters (by stamp designer Kira Nichols), a red Sharpie, and done!



Thanks for your visit today!  I appreciate those as well as your comments.  I hope you will find some time this month to participate in this month-long "Anything Goes" challenge at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge site.  There are 5 opportunities (5 Wednesdays) this month to submit your works.  At the end of the month, two winners will be drawn from among all submissions (rules here) to receive a $30 gift certificate for anything in the Stampotique online store.

Cheers!

  1. The Moustache Monsters are so cute on this fab Christmas Card and the black & white theme with splashes of red really makes this card pop!!!

    Thanks for the lovely words you left on my Altered Playing Cards, especially suggesting I should have included "talented" on what I like about myself. Thank you (she says, smiling) :-)

  11. I love that card and those little (whatever they are) are so sweet. I love NON traditional Christmas cards. I would love to enter but I haven't touched a scrap anything in I don't know how long. Everything just seems to be piling on me at the moment so I am just going with the flow for now.

The combination of this DP and those stamps is perfect! should I try to use DP again? don't think it would look so stunning as this... Hope you have a fun weekend... warm greetings, Gerrina
