Are you ready for a stamp challenge?

I have a challenge!
A daring kind of test!
She has a challenge!
That's why she needs the best!

I have a challenge!
I hope you don't protest!
Oh, queen, tell us your challenge,
we're ready for our quest!


(Disclaimer: The above catchy tune was taken from the often-watched Backyardigan's movie, Mighty Knights. Some wording was changed as I am not a male blue penguin named Pablo...)

Anyway.... lol

Are you prepared for a challenge?

As you may have noticed, the last few Studio Calico kits have contained exclusive stamps designed by a very cool guy named Stephen. You may have even met Stephen, as he ran around with us at CHA. He's got a lot of great ideas, so look forward to more stamps in the future.


More stamps you say? Why yes I did.

Let's take a look at what we've had in the past:











Aren't they very cool?! And most of them have been in the main kit.

But alas.... is there one, maybe two that you missed out on? What a bummer. Wouldn't it be great if you had the opportunity to purchase them sometime? Yep. That would be cool.

But I digress.

I have a challenge for you. Use any or all of the above stamps on a project. Card, tag, layout, home decor project, your bathroom walls, whatever. I want to see the SC stamps put to use. I want to be inspired by what you come up with.

You have until the end of the month. Post a link to your project to THIS THREAD and on October 1 I'll draw a winner. That person will get a little something from me, which will include a black Stazon ink pad. Yep. The ideal companion to any stamp.

Are you able to do more than one project? You will be entered once for every project you do, so the more the better!

Hop to it! I expect inky fingers by the end of the week!

I really, really hope you aren't teasing about being able to buy the stamps! I have only just found Studio Calico, and I would LOVE to be able to get my hands on some of the stamps from past kits!

They are certainly striking and unusual stamps. I used the wood grain one yesterday on a layout at the bottom of this post:

I used the Woodgrain stamp on naked chipboard and uploaded to my blog that I keep about my son over in Iraq.

It is used on a layout under the August 23, 2008 entry.

I have only been a subscriber for a couple of months, but I will see what I can come up with! I knew that little ditty was from Mighty Knights! We watch that often also!

OMG, I love these stamps, especially that "those were the days"!! Way to go Stephen!!

sylvie said...

I REALLY wish I could participate, unfortunately I just discovered Studio Calico also, so I do not own any of these stamps. I do hope that we will be able to buy some of those stamps in the future to catch up!

Good luck to those who can participate to the challenge.
