Worldwide Stamping Week

Worldwide stamping week begins this Saturday, June 14th at 2peas in a bucket. If you love to stamp and want some challenges, check it out. Most of the challenges have a random draw RAK attached to them. Post your projects in the 2peas stamping gallery to be in the drawings. The best part is that you have a whole week to play with the themes and it's all free. Check out this link for full descriptions and directions. Here is a short list of the themes so far just to get you excited about all the fun :

1. Anything Goes (use 3 stamps)
2. Asiana (whatever it means to you)
3. ATC: What time is it? (number/clock themed)
4. By the Sea (shells, lighthouses)

32 . Calendar Challenge (calendar stamps)
33. Earth-Friendly Challenge (recycling, repurposing, nature)

Check out #20, that's my challenge. Use a playing card somewhere in your stamped project. Cut it out, paint it, stamp on it, do whatever you want to it, just be sure we can tell it started life as a playing card. I'm drawing an RAK for a Penny Black brushstroke stamp and a few other stamping goodies. I hope you'll play along.
