TSC1: Getting All Dressed Up

Welcome everyone!  The Stampsmith Design Team is very excited to bring you The Stampsmith Challenge Blog!  Whether you are already a Stampsmith fanatic or are new to The Stampsmith images, we have loads of fun for you!

The very first challenge is going to be all about dressing up.  When you're dressing up for a party, a masquerade, a wedding, halloween, a themed event or any special occasion, you're going to need just the right outfit with all of the matching accessories! This challenge celebrates suits, dresses, crowns, masks, tiaras, bling, shoes, purses, feather boas or whatever costume is appropriate for the occasion!!

Feel free to create any type of project inspired by this theme (card, 3d object, altered project, art jewellery, etc.) to be entered for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate to spend in the Stampsmith Shop!

You are encouraged to us Stampsmith stamps if you have them, however; you may enter this challenge using any stamped images for your chance to expand your Stampsmith collection.

Never entered a challenge before?  We're honoured to have you join us!  It's really quite simple!  Just click on the link at the bottom of this post to enter the challenge.  You will be given the choice to link to your project on your blog or to upload your picture directly from your computer.  Check back to see other entries during the challenge.  The winner will be announced on October 15th when the next challenge starts.

The design team has graciously provided some beautiful inspiration! They invite you to visit their blogs for more details.  Click on the pictures to see larger versions.  Have fun and good luck!

  2. Hi Stampsmith
    I have my design ready, but I am unable to upload it to this site. I have tried both options available... no go.
    Maybe I could email it to you and you could put in on for me..let me know what you think.
