Bloom Where You Are Planted Challenge

Welcome to our new challenge.  It's time to check out DT members how they are "blooming where they're planted" below!  Be inspired, then come back and join us in the fun by posting your card at the bottom of this post between now and next Wednesday.  I can't wait to see theirs and yours too!!!

This challenge continues until next Wednesday, June 12.  Read the guidelines carefully because of our last two 2 changes regarding die/stamps and challenges with ours.  For those of you who aren't familiar with our challenges, the guidelines are below:

  • Use all IO dies/stamps.  (If the die is not IO, it should not be an image or border die (card shape templates, i.e. nestabilities are okay).
  • Please list our challenge first if you are taking part in other challenges.
  • Ending time for this challenge is Wednesday, June 12, at 10 p.m. EST.
  • Use the Inlinkz thumbnail format at the end of this post.
  • The drawing is for a $25 Gift Certificate for use in our on-line store and selected by Random.org.
  • The players are notified of the winner by email the same night, then posted the next day on DT Thursday.
  • All entries are posted in the Customer Card Gallery with a link back to your blog/gallery post.

Have some fun, invite a friend to create too, have a stamping/die party and/or create your card using all IO dies/stamps, and then post it using the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post.  If you have questions please email me.

If you need inspiration you can check out the 2012/13 Card Galleries at the top of the blog.  Also, there are direct links to their DT posts and more card samples in our on-line store too!

If you need help to start a gallery or blog I may be able to help you there too.  Your participation is what helps make the challenges a success and fun too!!

Inlinkz has a new format to be used.  If for any reason when this first posts there are problems, don't hesitate to email me.  Thanks for stopping by to look and join in the fun!!

Awesome challenge Thanks!!

The design team have produced great cards, now I have to buckle down and make something myself !

What I love about these challenges is that I actually ink up a stamp before I wait a year or two--LOL.

Hi Mitra:

We met this past weekend at the Syracuse Getaway - we were chatting with Sarah about plane flights/times for her daughter.

In any event - I want to participate in your challenges but just learned about your company. With only 1 week to submit items, I wouldn't have enough time to order product to participate. Make sense?

How does one get started? Can you release the "theme" ahead of time but not the details of it?


The DT posts were outstanding! Glad I don't have to pick a favorite. They were all so different and so gorgeous. The variety of techniques was really great, and left me wanting to try new things (and buy new things).
