A Wrap-Up

Hello friends! 
I hope this posts finds you well. As you can imagine, sifting through 240 entries is a huge task. Our 100% Stamped Challenge proved to be another huge success! You have truly risen to the challenge and stamped your heart out. 

I highlighted and categorized a few beautiful examples, so we can better understand and learn from each other. For your viewing enjoyment, please click on the links for more details. It would be awesome to leave these designers some blog love while you visit.

1. Background Stamping: these designers utilize every inch of their cards and did a superb job!

2. Border Stamping: the white space and stamping are in beautiful balance.

3. Stamp a Scene: with a creative mind, you can stamp anything...


4. Stamp a Focal Point: ...you get the point.


5. Stamp a Pattern: repeated stamping at its best


6. Colorful Stamping: we can always use more colors!


Are you enjoying these beautiful samples? In order to keep the post concise, I chose only 6 in each category to showcase.
 A special shout out to the following challenge players who also shared some awesome videos. If you have not checked them out, you really should and give them a thumbs-up!
