...Pajama Party

PAJAMA-PARTY-LOGO

ED - you will have noticed no doubt that i made a monumental hames of the linky times - my apologies, happily the party ran on rather than being cut short, but I promise to get a responsible adult to help me with the timing for the next party! We will announce winners this evening after the links close on challenges 1-4 and the sketch winner will be announced on Sept 6th.

Good evening and welcome to our August Waltzingmouse stamps Pajama Party! We hope you are comfy and ready to share some time together. We hold these events once a month to gather some inspiration, use some new AND old WMS sets and maybe win a prize.
We're going to keep the reading material short and sweet with the emphasis on inspiration, but if you would like to read more background to our Pajama Party idea, click here. If you would like to chat with other WMS fans about tonight’s pajama party, we have opened a forum thread here to share ideas, and chat it up with some fun party people. 
Winners of Challenges 1,2, 3 & 4 will be announced on Sunday and the Sketch winner will be announced on the September 6th.
Here are tonight's challenges!



Challenge 1 - Tie a knot in it

Above is my card for the Tie a knot in it challenge - I replicated the heart knot stamp from the Tying the knot set with real rope. If you missed the brief, here it is:
Make a card/project featuring Knots or Ropes. You do not have to use Waltzingmouse Stamps products to play along, but for this challenge, if your project uses the new Tying the knot stamps you will be eligible to double the prize if your project wins the random drawing.

What will happen next? : After the links close we will choose a random project to win a spot prize of £10 store credit! If the randomly chosen winner has used Tying the Knot stamps in the winning project the winner will double their prize and receive £20 store credit.

This link will remain open for 24 hours. If you have a card/project ready for this challenge - Link it up here:












Challenge 2 - Get Nauty
I'm still working on my little beach hut - I so wanted to make a 3D project for this challenge - and I the thing that tickles me most about this little beach hut is that it folds flat for putting in an envelope! Hope to have details on this in the next couple of days, but i didn't want to clog up this post!

The brief in case you missed it was: Make a project using a nautical theme. You might even want to consider a 3D project! You do not have to use Waltzingmouse Stamps products to play along, but for this challenge, if your project uses any of the new nautical theme stamps from the August release, you will be eligible to double the prize if your project wins the random drawing.

What will happen next ? : After the links close we will choose a random project to win a spot prize of £10 store credit! If the randomly chosen winner has used stamps from any of the following sets: Tying the Knot,  Ocean Bound, Safe Harbour sentiments, or the Pinstripe or Zig Zag backgrounds from our August release stamps in the winning project, the prize will double and will receive a £20 store credit. A bonus £10 will be added to this prize if the project created is a 3D project!

Challenge 3 - Colour inspiration 

I have a mini candy packet for my colour challenge and I just scraped in with this one - the little piece of spotty grey paper carries both shades of grey, phew! These are the closest colours I have - did you do any better?
 
The brief was to make a project using colours inspired by our picture. You do not have to use Waltzingmouse Stamps products to play along with this challenge. What will happen next? : After the links close we will choose a random project to win a spot prize of £10 store credit!

Challenge 4 - Golden Oldies

What will happen next? : After the links close we will choose a random project to win a spot prize of £10 store credit! If the randomly chosen winner has used their oldest WMS stamp in the winning project, they will double their prize and receive £20 store credit.
