Stamping Royalty 2013 is here! It’s time for YOU to take a crack at becoming an award-winning stamper.
Not sure where to begin or do you have a few questions? Here, let me answer those for you.
Why should I enter?
Are you kidding me?! How about because you could win something so big and so impressive and so wonderful, it’s bound to make you dive into your stamps immediately! We have a prize package worth over 750 dollars!
Yep, 750 dollars worth of stamps, embossing powders, stamp pads, and markers! Um….wow.
Face it, you know you want to go for it. What could you lose?
Nothing, I tell you! But you have everything to gain:
See what I mean?
How do I enter?
That’s an easy one.
1) Create an original STAMPED card for the following occasions:
- Christmas/Season’s Greetings
- Hello/Thinking of You
- Thank You
You can create as many cards for as many categories as you like.
2) Send in your card entry to our office for judging. Entries must be postmarked by April 8, 2013. Check out the official rules for the specifics.
How do I make a Stamping-Royalty-worthy card?
Before you get started on your entries, you may want to take a little time to do some research to see what products and trends are out there. You could do that by looking through this blog, the Moxie Fab World, or scrolling through our Designer Blog Roll, which is a list of contributors to our magazines who have blogs dedicated to paper crafting.
Maybe you can watch some tutorials. Or maybe you can try some new techniques, like coloring in stamps, using mists or watercolors with stamps, masking, embossing, or making your own background with stamped images. The ideas are only limited by your imagination!

And before you leave, I want to leave you with one of the winning Stamping Royalty cards from last year. This one was created by Rachel Law and can be found, along with the rest of the winning cards, in the November/December 2012 issue.
Thanks for checking in!
