Pick a Challenge, Any Challenge! (Contest! PRIZES!)

I loved hosting the upload challenge at our last release and giving away free stamps to the winner so I would like to do another one this week with an added twist: that you also incorporate another challenge! Upload a new card or project to your Splitcoast gallery* using any of my stamps with the keyword MMGKDMC (along with keywords for your other challenges, whatever they may be) by EDITED TO ADD: TUESDAY, July 8th, 10PM CST. I will do a random drawing of all entries and announce a winner on my blog Wednesday July 9th. That person will get to choose ONE of the following THREE PRIZE OPTIONS:

"Cuddles and Hugs" set
"Jumping for Joy" set (each set is valued at 19.95!)
or
Gina K Designs OMS / blending stumps bundle! (15.90 value! (does not include pencils))

There are no rules for my challenge other than you have to use stamps from one of my sets and it has to follow the rules of at least one other challenge (some reqiure you link it to thier post etc just check out each challenge's rules). IMPORTANT: Be sure to incorporate the proper keywords for my challenge and the other challenges to play, and that your keywords are separated by commas. You will receive one entry for each challenge you incorporate with mine! So let's you say you use my stamps and play the color challenge on SCS: that's ONE entry. Let's say you ALSO incorporate the SCS sketch challenge on that same project: that's TWO entries! There are challenges posted every day this week on SCS (list of all here) along with challenges in the member companies forums and countless others on the blogs you read each week, Taylor's Cupcake Challenge, Card Positioning Systems or Card of the Week sketch challenge, just to name a few (I see Beate's not doing one for awhile or I would have mentioned it)!! There is NO limit to how many challenges you use or how many times you enter, go crazy!!!

What makes this extra fun is that you 'll have a TON of people viewing your stuff, leaving comments, and you could win a prize for one of these challenges even if you don't win mine (or maybe you'll win in addition to mine?!) Several have prizes of their own or choose the winning project to be featured on their blog at the end of the challenge! So have fun and use the challenges that YOU want to play, maybe you have a favorite you do regualrly or there's a new one you want to try! I can't wait to see all your entries!!

If you would like an extra entry into the contest (!), let me know HERE in the comment section you have linked this post on your blog (after linking it!) to help spread the word and get everybody playing in the contest! Thanks for your help! :)

I will be back to post a card sample using a sketch and color combo to illustrate this, I have been SO busy with my son celebrating his 6th birthday yesterday AND putting the finishing touches on my JULY STAMP SET!!!!!! can't wait, can't wait for our next release!

* All these sets from from Gina K Designs so be sure to list that and the name of the set in your keyword description! :)

Boy, that was a tough but fun challenge! I managed to get 4 different SCS challenges into my card. The hardest one was the limited supply challenge where I had to use red, white, and blue but only 4 layers and 4 tools/embellishments. Here is my link to SCS: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/975083?nocache=1
Thanks for the challenge and the chance to win some awesome blog candy!

I AM SOOOOO EMBARRASSED!!!!!!!! Can you forgive me, Melanie? :( I deleted my previous cards from SCS and replaced them with corrected cards using the heart balloon, love you, and heart with arrow from your "Just So Hippy" set. Everything else is the same on the card, just grabbed the wrong set. I only have one of your sets so far and really do need more for the challenges. I have them on my wishlist! Now if I can just find that money tree, I'll have it made!

Angie said...

I played in your challenge! I made it just under the wire, but I did it. Yea!!!
