So on to a new challenge...
We are overdue for a new challenge, I know the holidays are fast approaching but I want to sneak in one more challenge before we close out 2008 and before we say goodbye to our current holiday special
As you might know two of our Designers (Donna D. and Donna B. AKA "The Donnas") host a (semi) weekly challenge in our group at Paper Craft Planet. http://www.papercraftplanet.com/group/starvingartistamps
This weeks challenge is to design an incredibly cool CLEAR card.
Here are the details for those of you who wish to take a break from the holiday rush, get a little "me" time and make a fun card!
This weeks challenge is to make a clear card using acetate or transparency.
The theme is open to however you wish to interpret it.
It will be your choice as to what size and shape your card is.
As long as it contains a clear element it counts!
*Cards do not need to contain SA or DF images in them but... all cards using our images will be posted in our gallery. www.starvingartistampsgallery.blogspot.com
Everyone who participates will get entered into a drawing for a Santa's Sweet Shoppe set with matching Sweet Shoppe sentiments.
(Dont worry, if you really need to get your hands on a set you can get one now or if you already have one if you are the winner we will subsitute for other stamps of equal value!)
With the holiday fast approaching these are the final days to purchase your sweet shoppe set at the holiday special Buy Santa's Sweet Shoppe, get the Sweet Shoppe sentiments FREE (an 11.95 value!) The special ends 12/25/08. (Or win one by participating in our challenge!!!)
All you need to do is head on over to our group on Paper Craft Planet http://www.papercraftplanet.com/group/starvingartistamps and post a reply to our thread, attach the photo or post a link to where your card can be found. If you can not post for some reason you can also email your card or blog/gallery link to email@example.com
Here are a few more details:
-All cards must be submitted on or before December 30th
-The drawing winner will be randomly selected and posted no later than December 31st.
-The challenge tag code for PCP and/or SCS will be SADF1208
-All cards containing Starving Artistamps or DoodleFactory images will also use the company tag: SADF
Need some inspiration? Check our what Lisa, Lori, and Lydia did for their clear creations!
(no we didnt ask all the "L" girls to make cards, it just worked out that way... eerie huh?)

In an effort to make nice we are are doing two very special things. First, we are going to put this set up at a great price and as an added bonus from now until Christmas we are going to give you all the matching sentiments for FREE when you buy the full set. (An 11.95 value!)
But since we don't like to force you to buy stuff you don't want, we are also going to offer these incredibly cool guys individually in both unmounted and mounted. You will also be able to purchase the sentiments separately if you feel the need to.
These will start shipping sometime around November 11th. The molds are on their way here already. If you have ever pre-ordered from us before you know that we are pretty good with our ship dates. (shipping ETA's are always posted on the home page if you haven't noticed)
And here are the matching sentiments you will get for FREE when you purchase the set:
- First and foremost you must SPREAD the WORD by telling every STAMPER you know about our new stamps and blog candy (yes, we do check!)
- Second you must stroke Irene's ego and tell her what you love most about her wonderful stamps. It would be especially helpful if you tell her why you love her artwork and why waiting for the newest release is so difficult!
- Lastly, you must agree that if you win the prize you will lovingly USE your stamps within 2 weeks of getting them and send us a photo of your project for us to show off on our gallery.

My card -Tracey B.
This first card was my attempt at the Swedish collage style. I went thru a couple of "drafts" of this card. Eventually settling on this final version. I thought this was going to be my "warm up" card but time got away from me getting ready for shows and filling orders so this has turned out to be my only challenge card but definitely not my last Swedish collage style card!

And here are cards from our friends and customers:
Nina's cards are such an inspiration to us. Her blog is wonderful (even if you do need a translator!) http://krumelurkonst.blogspot.com/ and this incredibly talented lady has also just finished her internship and is now a 100% full fledged DOCTOR! Everyone visit Nina's blog and congratulate her!!
We have had such a great turnout in both the states and over in Sweden including several friends who thought they would try out our challenge even though they do not own any Starving Artistamps stamps. Here are a whole bunch more cards and blogs for you to check out featuring other various company images:
