Are You Ready To Be Challenged?


Welcome to the first ever Dolce Stamps and Cards Thursday challenge, we're glad you could make it!

Every other Thursday Dolce Stamps and Cards will be holding a fun new challenge that will be chosen by the fabulous and talented Dolce Stamps Design Team, so get ready to have some stampin' fun and prizes!

Each month Dolce Stamps and Cards will also be featuring a different stamp company that the design team will be using for their challenge inspiration and this month we are featuring the awesome IMPRESSION OBSESSION stamp line.

The winner of the challenge will receive a $10.00 gift certificate to the Dolce Stamps And Cards online store which is full of all kinds of awesome stamping goodies.

In addition to the $10.00 gift certificate, the winner will receive an "I Won A Dolce Stamps And Cards Challenge" badge for the sidebar of their blog and their card will be featured during the announcement of the following challenge for all to see.

So here we go...

This week your challenge has been brought to you by Heather and she is challenging you to create a distressed card. This week's keywords are DSAC01 for your public galleries and/or blogs.

To be eligible to win these amazing prizes you must first become a follower of the Dolce Stamps and Cards blog and if posting to your blog, be sure to mention that your card is for the Dolce Stamps and Cards Thursday Challenge. If posting to a public forum (such as Splitcoast Stampers or Paper Craft Planet) please be sure to use the challenge keywords in your post (listed above) and if posting to a blog, you must place a direct link back to the Dolce Stamps and Cards blog and must post only the link to your entry, not your entire blog in the linky widget. Your challenge entry must also be a new creation, no back links to an older card, links that do not follow these rules will, unfortunately be deleted and not eligible for any prizes that might be offered. Entry deadline is Monday, September 26th at 12:00pm Pacific Standard Time.

But wait, we are even going to sweeten the pot and give you an additional chance to win this weeks prizes, all you have to do is use an IMPRESSION OBSESSION image on your challenge entry card.

Now for some amazing eye candy inspiration to get you started:

Just a question, as I don't understand.. You say you'll sweeten the pot if you use a certain line of stamps.. so if even I try to order them, we won't be able to turn our project in on time. Is that what you're saying? Just became a follower, and would like to participate.. I was even planning on placing an order soon, but... should I just skip ordering the stamps, if I can't make the deadline with them anyway? ~tina

Thank you for your question and becoming a follower. You have till the 26th to post to this challenge using any stamp but get an extra entry if you use an Impression Obsession image, so please make an entry. We have another Challenge starting September 29th using Impression Obsession too, so if you put an order in we ship out in a day usually so you would get your stamps and be able to have two entries for the next one. I look forward to seeing an entry from you.
Keep on Stamping and have fun,
