SDC211: Perfectly Primary


Sue Davies is our hostess this week and she's bringing us back to our childhood days:

Take 2 of the 3 primary colours (and the colours that they create when mixed) and just use these on your creation. You can also use black and white if you like. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create.

IMPORTANT REMINDER:
Please read ALL RULES on the linkz page before linking your creation.
If you didn't follow the rules posted, you may have been deleted.  
Feel free to relink your creation with the correct information for a chance to win.


Our Guest Designer for the month of September is the fantastic Anni Lerchi





Hello, I am Anni and I’m from Germany. For 15 years now I´ve lived in the beautiful city Berlin and I am married. I work as a math-teacher at a vocational college; to perform handicraft work is a perfect compensation for that.

Into stamping I am since 2008, I love clean and simple cards, and yet eventually my cards often turn out to be somewhat more complex. I love the soothing of paper piecing and resist techniques. You can see all my projects at www.anikarten.blogspot.com

SDC September Challenge Links

PLEASE READ ALL RULES BEFORE LINKING

Please remember you can use any stamps now for our challenge, but only one entry per person.  We will draw 2 random winners on the first week of our challenge in October from all those who played in the September challenges.

If you do not have a blog to link up to, please feel free to join our Stampotique page on Facebook here.  We have a photo album on there called SDC Challenge Photos that you can upload your photo there.  Once you have uploaded it there, go to your photo in that album and copy the URL to link on the Stampotique Designer's Challenge links.  You will not be eligible if you do not link up to our challenge site.

We are no longer accepting creations using digi stamps.  These will be deleted, we appreciate those that play with us each week and we welcome those using rubber or clear stamps.


Please link DIRECTLY to your creation, not to your blog.  You MUST  include the challenge # (which can be found at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog) behind your name (any not linking directly to your creation AND having the challenge # will be deleted and not eligible for prize).   For example if I'm entering it would look like this- 
MYNAME-SDC73 
(or whichever challenge # it is) . 

We ask that if you have comment verification turned on, that you would consider turning this on and doing comment moderation instead.  

Please use Inlinkz below to link up your challenge.  

**Change to Stampotique submission rules:  You will now have until the first challenge of the following month to submit your entries-we will only have one Inlinkz per month; so today marks the start of the challenges for September and it will run through the close of our last challenge for September which will be October 6, 2015 at 12:00 p.m. EST**

Stampotique New Release Blog Hop

Today we are joined by the Stampotique Design Team to showcase the images released from Stampotique this month.  If you haven't had a chance to see what's new, you can do that over on the Stampotique website here.

As with any of the releases, there is a variety of stamps from our artists for any stampers, scrapbookers and journalers out there.  We always love to see what your favorites are so while you are hopping around, make sure to stop by and say "hi" on our blogs and come back here and tell us what some of your favorite images from this release were.

We'll be giving away a $30 gift certificate for stamps and a grab bag of stamps on two of the blogs-but you won't know which ones they are so stop by and visit them all.  We will pick the winners on our first challenge in September.

This is Kim Howard and I've been the design team coordinator with Stampotique shortly after I begged and begged to be a part of the design team.  I've thoroughly enjoyed my time on the team, the great friends I've made, the way I've grown as a stamper, and mostly being a part of the Stampotique family.  This is my last blog hop as I turn the reigns over to my wonderful design team member in taking over for me, Claudine Criner.  Claudine will do a fabulous job and while I may not be as involved with Stampotique as I have been in previous years, I will always remain a faithful stalker.  Thank you to all of you out there who always took time to leave comments or drop me a note-I always appreciated getting them.

Have fun hopping!
