Challenge #12 - Let's Play Bingo!

Hi everyone and welcome back to the Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog! Wow - we had some really gorgeous entries in our "It's Monochrome!" challenge that just ended! And I have to say that it did prove to be quite a "challenge!" Creating a monochromatic card in black and white and shades of gray with an allowed splash of just ONE other color is difficult to accomplish, and we thank everyone who played with us! I'll be back within this next week to announce our Winner and Top 3 Picks!

Want to guest design for Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog? We'd love for you to be in our Guest Designer Spotlight! See the tab above for all the details! Just add GDT after your name when you link up and you'll be entered into 'the pool' from which one lucky crafter will be picked to guest design for us each month (that's two challenges)!


Now, on to our challenge...
Woo-hoo! Get ready for it... Let's Play Bingo!

I think you're all familiar with this one... just choose any column or row (vertically, horizontally or diagonally) on the grid and use those three items on your project:


You can use any rubber stamp or digital image you want! 
[That means we want to see stamping on your project!]


Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Nest Dolls! Woo-hoo!



The prize up for grabs is a $25 gift certificate to the online store (good for digital and rubber stamps)!


OMG! How awesome is that?! We're so grateful for this sponsorship!


And remember... we normally allow 2 entries per challenge and we'll allow a 3rd entry if you use a stamp from The Paper Nest Dolls! But there's a catch... you MUST mention in your blog post which stamp you've used and link directly to that stamp on The Paper Nest Dolls site, and you MUST put #3 after your name when you link up below so that we know you're going for the extra entry using a sponsor image!


Now, without further ado, check out these awesome DT inspiration projects from our talented guest designer in our Guest Designer Spotlight and our design team! They've been busy creating, just for you...

Challenge #11 - It's Monochrome!

Hi everyone and welcome back to the Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog! We had a week's break between challenges since July was one of the few months during the year with five Mondays. But we're back this morning, rip-roarin' to start our next challenge! We think you're gonna love this one... and it's going to be a "challenge!"

Want to guest design for Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog? We'd love for you to be in our Guest Designer Spotlight! See the tab above for all the details! Just add GDT after your name when you link up and you'll be entered into 'the pool' from which one lucky crafter will be picked to guest design for us each month (that's two challenges)!


Now, on to our challenge...
This will be so much fun... It's Monochrome!

You must use BLACK AND WHITE - and you may use shades of gray and just a splash of one other color if you want!
No exceptions... only a tiny bit of another color and shades of gray will be allowed in addition to the mandatory black and white! C'mon, you can do it! ;)

And you can use any rubber stamp or digital image you want! [That means we want to see stamping on your project!]


Our sponsor for this challenge is the amazing My Crafty Heart!


The prize up for grabs is a £10 voucher to the My Crafty Heart store! Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that's equivalent to approximately $16 USD!
How awesome is that?! We're so grateful for this sponsorship!

And remember... we'll allow a 3rd entry if you use a stamp from the My Crafty Heart store! But there's a catch... you MUST mention in your blog post which stamp you've used and link directly to that stamp on the My Crafty Heart site, and you MUST put #3 after your name when you link up below so that we know you're going for the extra entry using a sponsor image!
