Stampotique's Magical Mystery Tour & Challenge

Starts today!

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.  

If you have arrived here from the gorgeous Designs by Lisa blog then you are in the right place, if not, you may want to begin at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog and begin your tour from there.

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!

Here is my card for the challenge..

A really faboulous challenge and lots of fun to use up a sheet of acetate from a previous Stampotique challenge.

Stamps used: Smushasha with Weasel's (sign that she nabbed!) The Town Of Goth, Tangled and Fancy fishes and birthday wishes!

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 and at being our August Guest Designer, see our blog for additional information.

Our tour will end on June 28th and the winner or the 2 tour prizes will be announced on our blog on June 29th.

You will want to jump on over to fabulous Maria's blog to see what kind of scraps she has used on our Magical Mystery Tour.

Thank you for calling and good luck for the draw.. can't wait to visit you. Gez.xx
