SDC267 - Seeing Red

Welcome back to the Stampotique challenge blog, We hope you all had a Happy Valentine's Day yesterday.
 It's a new week with a new challenge and this one has us Seeing Red. This particular challenge we had some of our team interpreted the "seeing red" as shades of the color red and some interpreted it as being mad or angry.
 We think you should do what you want with this challenge. All we ask is there is some color red in your creation.

Check out what our team made below and then come join us for this fun challenge

SDC 266 - Love Bugs

Welcome back everyone! 
Are you ready for some changes?! 
Stampotique has decided to do new stamp release every month, instead of twice a year! How cool is that?
Here is a link to February's new releases
NEW RELEASES FOR FEBRUARY
Exciting right? We will post a link here on the blog each month for the new releases. Make sure to check them out!!

For our first challenge in February we are focusing on "Love" and "Bugs"
Love Bugs is our challenge to you. Make something geared towards love and add a few bugs onto your project. We can't wait to see what you come up with. 
Remember, one lucky entry winner will get a 30.00 gift certificate to our online store. This winner will be drawn and announced at our first challenge in March so stay tuned!!!
Below are some wonderful entries from our fabulous design team, check them out and then join us for this challenge.
Last but certainly not least:
Our guest designer for the month of February is Gemma Maggs! We are thrilled to have her, we think she will bring a wonderful esthetic to the team in February. Here is a little bit about Gemma



- I feel so excited and honoured to be the February Guest Designer for Stampotique! My name is Gemma Maggs and I live in Yorkshire, England with my Fiancé and ur gorgeous dog Reno.
Where art and crafts are concerned, I'll try anything and probably already have at some point; but I really do love Mixed Media, Art Journaling and Rubber Stamping. I've got a large and ever growing collection of rubber stamps, including over 120 Stampotique stamps. You can never have too many, I just love their quirkiness!
There are no rules in mixed media or art journaling; just love what you do, be messy and have fun.

Check out Gemma at her blog gemsinkyantics.blogspot.com
