SDC14: Not so Sweet 16

SDC14: Not so Sweet 16
THIS WEEK IS A STAMPOTIQUE STAMPS ONLY CHALLENGE, USE OF OTHER STAMPS WILL NOT QUALIFY YOU FOR THE GIFT CERTIFICATE

Hi I'm Kaz and I'm excited and a little nervous about setting my first challenge. This month my eldest niece turns 16, but she's not your typical glittery shoes and handbags card kind of girl. In fact I bought my first Stampotique stamp, Moth Fab, for a card for her on a previous birthday as it is so her and I became hooked on them and here I am a year later on the DT! So I would like to see some (not so) sweet 16 cards for non-girly girls please!

This is a Stampotique Stamps only week,
if you do not own any Stampotique Stamps yet, please join us the first Wednesday of the month for our any stamps goes challenge.

Willy had a tough time choosing her 3 favorites this past challenge but finally narrowed it down to the following, please contact Kim @ khowardga@gmail.com if you would like to display the Stampotique Designer's Favorite badge:

 The combination of the background colors and the white embossing is absolutely stunning.

I love all those brave girls with wings in front of the graffiti wall. Great quotes!

The choice of colors is gorgeous. An amazing card with the landscape and the wonderful wings.



We had a whopping 40+ entries for our last challenge, we are thrilled that so many played and we look forward to seeing more for this next challenge!!  Our random winner this week is a lucky on as we have upped the ante to include a $25 gift certificate ($20 towards stamps, $5 towards shipping) from Stampotique and we will be offering this on all challenges going forward.  Without further ado, our winner this week is:

#19 Carol Q



Here is what the design team created this week for our Not So Sweet 16 theme:

  6. How do you enter the challenge?? I have made a few cards with my recent purchase of these stamps and would like to enter them?

  7. Firstly Debra, there should be instructions on the side bar of how to enter, but all you need to do is make a piece using the stampotique stamps around the theme for the week your partaking, then just add you link and pic via the little blue frog button.

    Secondly fab DT work, i'm glad this challenge is here as i love my stamps but dont often get to use them and this challenge gets me doing that :D
