Stampendous is so excited to be bringing something NEW to you! Each month on the first Saturday, we will share a brand new challenge with you - it might be a sketch, or colors, or a fun new technique to try. You'll have an entire month to play along with us! And what would a challenge be without a prize? We'll draw a random winner from all qualifying entries at the end of the month, who will win that month's prize. 

We're kicking off the new Stampendous Saturday Challenge with a Sketch for September, drawn by Wendy PriceTo play along with us and be eligible to win the Cling Jumbo Romantic Border we're giving away this month, make a card or project using our sketch, upload it to your blog or other online gallery (keyword: STM01), and add the direct link to the linky tool on the Stampendous blog. You have until Thursday, September 29th at 11:00 PM PST to play! You don't have to use a Stampendous image or products to play along, but we sure love it when you do!
Be sure to head over to the Stampendous blog to check out all the details, see more inspiration from our designers, and to add your link to the linky tool!  

Also, stop by these blogs to see what my other Stampendous teammates have created with the sketch:

For my version of Wendy Price's sketch, I thought that I'd have some ghoulish fun with a couple of Stampendous' latest creeps...Mumpkin and Count Jack! They're a bit more cute than creepy, but that's okay with me. The background adds some creepy notes. I used the Crowscape Background stamped in gray ink on the purple card. Since I knew that I wanted to "mummy wrap" some twill around the bottom of the card, I added a striped panel of paper to make room. I punched nine 1 1/4" circles and stamped my guys on them, distressed around the edges on everything, including the twill, and added a pop of color with the glowing green eyes and the bright green circle for the sentiment. Oh, yes, and a tiny violet rhinestone drop of blood on Count Jack's fang! 

If you've had a chance to check out all the blogs so far in our September Challenge line-up, then break out your stamps and inks and get crafty! Create your own version of this fun sketch, post it, and link it with the keyword (STM01) on the Stampendous blog for your opportunity to win THIS fabulous image!

For those of you that have been our faithful followers through the July and August Stampendous Saturdays, I hope you will continue to follow along and PLAY along with us. My final winner from the August blog candy give-aways is:


Congratulations! Please email ( me with your address and your new Cling Jumbo Snowflakes will be sent off to you asap!
Last week's winner PAM...please contact me with your info to the email above. Please do so before Tuesday, September 6th, or I will need to randomly choose another winner.

Your card is so creative! I thought Count Jack had a tongue piercing:-)
Love all of the textures - Crowscape background, mummy twill, glowing eyes and the blood/piercing. Thanks for all of your help this week. I'm grateful.
