Stampendous April Challenge!!

Hey Y'all!!!

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! Snazz 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 (that’s recycling, right?!?). Here is my project and it goes a lil' somethin' like this...................CHECK IT!!!

The thing that is recycled or repurposed is the green "ribbon".......the ribbon is a field day ribbon from school from many years a go.....my Principal "hooked" me up....lol!!!

Ready to see some more? Here is the whole list of our fantastic team(that are all teaming up with Dreamweaver Stencils) members who are 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 EDT to add your direct link to our collection at the end of this post. 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. Available in stores now, it will be on the website for purchase soon!
Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address. We hope you have a chance to play along with us this month (you can enter as many times as you’d like!)… Happy Crafting!

I created ths card using the CAS-Fridays sketch this week as well:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
