Hello everyone and welcome back to the design team challenge blog for Stampotique Originals. We are so happy your here again.
Have you gotten a chance to see the new stamps that were released this month? If not, you can see them all HERE

We are deep into another week of the "Only Purple" challenge so let's see your purply projects! Won't you come and join us for this challenge?


We would like to thank Claudine Criner for being our guest designer last month, it was so fun to have her with us, not only behind the scenes but up front and center too!
Our new guest designer for May is also a new designer of stamps for Stampotique. Her name is Tini Lubberink  and you can see all of her stamps for Stampotique HERE

......and a little more about Tini
Dear Stampotique fans,
It is a great honor to me to be the guest-designer of this month. And I start with a great thank you for this opportunity. 
My name is Tini Lubberink. I am living in the northern part of the Netherlands. I love to paint, draw, write, art journalling and of course rubber stamping. The Tooth Family has recently become a family member from the Stampotique Family. And I am very grateful for that. Thanks Carol!
The first toothmember was born on a workshop of Kate Crane. I was arthournalling and had tot design a figure. And that figure became the first Tooth. I must admit they have changed, but still Tooths. 
This month I will join the designteam with great pleasure. Come and join too.
Have a nice day! Tini



So check out some inspiration from the design team below before you join us in this challenge.
