Return of the Stamp of the Month Challenge at From The Heart Stamps

After a break the Stamp of the Month challenge has returned to From the Heart Stamps. With it being February the image this time is very suitable for Valentine’s Day and is a little different from the usual images associated with the celebration. I chose to use it on a couple of ATC’s.


Materials used:
From the Heart Stamps – Hogs and Kisses Pigwit
X-Press It! card
Copic pens
snippets of white card

Pigwit has been printed out on the X-Press It! card at the correct size for an ATC. The image is coloured with Copics and the heart added free-hand.

The image has been trimmed to ATC size and stuck to a piece of scrap white card slightly smaller.

Finally a black Copic has been run around the outside edges.

This is a progressive challenge so if you enter this month you automatically get the next challenge image free. It keeps going until you miss a month. There are still a few days left to enter, so if you are interested in having a go here is some helpful information:

FREE Stamp of the Month Rules

Monthly Image Challenge:

Each month that you enter the challenge, you will receive the following month’s image for free…and so on.

This challenge is held monthly on the 1st of the month. You must enter the challenge by the last day of the month at 11:59 PM (Central Time Zone).

I will post a new image each month, by the 3rd of the month, and it will be the “challenge image.” To enter the challenge, you must make a project with the current challenge image, post your project to your blog or an online gallery (no blog required to play) and also link back to the From The Heart Stamps blog and store. You will have one month to do this. Enter your project into the challenge by linking up using the InLinkz linky at the bottom of each challenge post.

By entering the challenge and following the rules, you will receive a second free digital stamp. Repeat the process again, and you will receive a freebie each month you link back to this blog and From The Heart Stamps, and add your post/card to our InLinkz linky.

EVERYONE that plays is a winner, and EVERYONE that plays earns free digital stamps.
I may award additional random prizes for each challenge.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
