Stampendous Saturday Challenge - Thank You!

Happy Saturday!

It's the first Saturday in April, and that means the Stampendous team has a brand new challenge for you. This month, in honor of Earth Day, we are challenging ourselves (and you) to make something that uses product(s) that are recycled, repurposed, or reused in some way. The possibilities are endless! Doll up a household item and turn it into something beautiful, use something unexpected on your card, or even just use up some scraps you've had in your stash forever.

Here is what I fashioned for you today:


Copic Markers
Glitter for daisy centers
Distress Inks
Crochet lace trim

So what did I recycle?  The background is a dictionary page that I crumpled and then distressed with Ranger Distress Inks.  This isn't a new technique, but a good tried and true one that is always quick and easy.

Ready to see some more?  Here is the whole list of my fantastic teammates who are all sharing some fabulous inspiration with you today:


Don't forget - we want YOU to play along with us!  You have until Thursday, May 3, 2012 at 11:59 PM EST to add your direct link to our collection at the end of this post (or on the Stampendous blog).  You do not have to use Stampendous products, but we sure love it when you do!  As an extra incentive for playing along, one lucky crafter (drawn at random) will receive this fabulous Mother's Love Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.  It is available in stores now and will be on the website for purchase soon!


Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address.  

We hope you will have a chance to play along with us this month. And remember, you can enter as many times as you'd like!

I'll be back tomorrow.  See ya then!

Gorgeous card! I so love daisies, they are my all time favorite flower. Simple and delicate in their beauty but strong enough to withstand the elements. Love it!
