Our Prize Sponsor This Week as Well as Our Design Team Sponsor All Month Long is...

For the entire month of June our Design Team is being sponsored by TradeFish Designs, a company devoted to creating stamps with masculine themes, imagery and sentiments. In recognition of these masculine stamps we are holding DUAL CHALLENGES all month long. As a participant in our challenges you can choose to create a project using the current challenge theme as it is written or take it a step further (like our Design Team did) and use the challenge theme to create a masculine project, or you can even choose to enter two projects, one for the regular challenge and one for the challenge with a masculine twist.

As a special gift to the winner of each week's challenge, TradeFish Designs will award one stamp set (selected by the winner) to our top Papercraft Star too, so we hope you join us for all our challenges this month!

As a special gift to all our Papercraft Star followers you can use this code, PCSTAR10, for a 10% discount at TradeFish Designs all month !!

Our Challenge This Week !

Use the letters "S", "T", "A", "R" as inspiration for your project (i.e. "S" for sentiment, "R" for ribbon, etc.,)

Our Design Team

Kim followed the challenge by creating an all occasion card using a sentiment from Missing You by TradeFish Designs. For "S" she used stitching; for "T" she used trim; "A" an acrylic heart; and "R" for ribbon. For a list of supplies, stop by Kim's blog and be sure to say hello.
Tracy used a scallop, trim, alcohol ink, and rhinestones to create her card for this weeks challenge. Her sentiment is from the "Missing You" stamp set from TradeFish Designs.

For this challenge Regan decided to do something a little different, instead of a card or layout she created this fun award for Father's Day! This can be used as a pin, magnet, topper for a gift or even an embellishment for the special Dad in your life. As far as the challenge this was her letter inspiration: STAR DAD - S: Stamp & Stripes, T: Tim Holtz, A: Adhesive and R: Ribbon. For more please visit her blog Emora Designs.

Beth has played along with the Design Team all month long in order to help the team feature projects created using our June Design Team sponsor, Tradefish Design's stamps and in an effort to showcase the fun and versatility of these stamps as well. Beth said, "I think there has been a real niche open in the papercrafting world for masculine stamps like those designed and produced by TradeFish Designs and I am thrilled to be a part of showcasing this new product to papercrafters." Beth used the letter S.T.A.R to inspire her when she created this, "You can always use more socks, mugs, ties, underwear and hats card". She used the inspiration letters, S - "Stamps', T - "Twine", A - "Alphas" and R - "Ribbon" to complete this project. You can get a complete supplies list from her blog.

Jan used clay for her sentiment this week. She thinks she can get away with R for Rivet in her S*T*A*R recipe ! If you haven't used clay before, her blog has details.

Link up between now and Sunday (9pm Eastern US) with your STAR entries !

Tomorrows tutorial is with Regan, and Jan will have Friday's Executive Reveal. See you then !!
