Stampotique Celebration Challenge!

Kim Howard is hosting Stampotique Designers Challenge this week and her theme is Celebration!

This is what she had to say about her challenge!
"Today we have a super fun challenge for you.
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, our theme 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!"

Owl with Wings (Jo Capper Sandon) Stack of Birds (Kira Nichols), and Banner (France Papillon) were all stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Neenah cardstock, colored with Copic markers, and fussy cut. 

The die-cut bottle was in my stash. I added a label and a gold foil top. Owl with Wings (Jo Capper Sandon), acted as sommelier, but was not prepared to be sent air born with the cork, which was cut from real cork paper. 

A Die-Namics die was used to die-cut vellum for two of the Stack of Birds' champagne glasses.

A Memory Box Grass die was used to die-cut green cardstock. The clouds dies are from two different Memory Box die sets and were used to die-cut vellum.

The letters in the Banner are glitter sticker letters from Making Memories, which means that they are old! The scene was created and added to a large card.

Thanks for visiting today!
