Stampotique's Magical Mystery Tour

  Join us for Stampotique's Magical Mystery Tour today.  Why a Magical Mystery Tour?  Comment on all the blogs and along the way we have 2 mystery prizes to give away.  Along with your tour you will see all the creations from our current challenge, SDC33.

If you have arrived here from Monique's blog you are in the right place, if not you will want to start at the beginning of Stampotique's Magical Mystery Tour.

A few weeks ago, Valerie had us recycling and this week she has us cleaning house again!!!  She's challenging us to dig in our stash to see how many scraps we can use up in our projects.  Just about anything qualifies as a scrap - as long as you're utilizing a piece or part of something that you generated before but never used up... it counts!  So what will it be?  Bits of an old master board or freaky background?  Leftover pieces of your favorite designer paper?  Part of an old piece of grunge board?  Fragments of a previously inked image?  Or the remnants of some odd embellishment?  Let's see just how creative you can be!

I didn't use as many scraps as I probably could have but all of these with the exception of the white card base were in my scrap pile.  Whenever I use patterned paper I put my bits back into the pad I tore it from so that I always have the matching pieces.

Additional Prizes and a chance to be our August GUEST DESIGNER

As you make your way through the tour make sure you comment on each and every post. There will be 2 prize winners chosen randomly amongst the blogs.  For some additional chances to win another prize join us with our "Scraps" Challenge using your Stampotique stamps for your chance at a $30 gift certificate for Stampotique stamps or a chance to be our August Guest Designer, which we will randomly draw winners of each of those.

Our tour will end on June 28th and the winner or the 2 tour prizes will be announced on our blog on June 29th.  Our challenge, however will be open until July 12th.

You will want to jump on over to visit Nellie to see what kind of scraps she has used on our Magical Mystery Tour.
Here is the master list in case you get lost along your tour:

Great card live the image and contrast with scrap patterns

scrappystickyinkymess said...

I love it. While I like doing challenges, I don't do them for their own sake. If I can't make something I love, that pleases my eye, I won't bother. So what if you used only a couple of scraps? The card turned out very sweet and that, at the end of the day, is what REALLY matters. And heck, you used SOME scraps so job done!

:)
