STAMPlorations September challenge

This is my second post today - for the Simply Create Too challenge, please scroll down - you may want to do that, since I have also been using STAMPlorations stamps there and a fun new product ;)

Its September and guess what that means - a new STAMPlorations challenge!


This one really caused me a headache. I had no clue what to make. My mind just went blank. Nothing, zilch, nada.....

And I am fully aware that I am not very good at using my Copics.....That does not help. Finally my sister gave me an idea - kind of at the last moment..... and here it is:


I used a TCW stencil and a fine tipped marker to draw the circles. I then doodled into some of them and added color using using the round stamp from the VIGNETTE: Retro Mod Shapes. The banner is from the same set - I fussy cut it. The sentiment is from Bloom Sketches, which I heat embossed in white. Mounted it with foam tape. Lastly I glued the white card stock onto a grey base card.


 Head over to the blog to get inspired by our fabulous DT and our wonderfully creative Guest Designer Chris G - her flickr site will wow you!
The challenge ends September 30, the winner will be announced October 2.

And today is the last day for our prerelease discount - you'll get them at a whooping 29% OFF. If you do not want to buy all of them there is a discount of 15% for the new August/September stamps. And if this is not good news enough - join our stamp club, get FREE shipping worldwide and receive fabulous discounts - for more info click HERE

There is a prize (for the participant who enters all 3 challenges in September):
$15 Gift Certificate to spend on the STAMPlorations shop.

I am also entering the card into the current colour me...! challenge - yellow and a neutral, for which I choose grey.


 Bizzy Bec's - Anything Goes
Simon Says Wednesday challenge - use a clear or rubber stamp and leave comments on all the blog hop stops (left comments and used clear stamps)

Brilliant card and your technique is innovation, plus!! Copics and I don't really play together well either, so I'm doubly impressed that you found some different markers in a unique way! Definitely inspiring!
