Hi stampers!

We announced the winners of our last Flickr challenge yesterday. You can find that info here:

We are still waiting to hear from Robin M! Robin, please check your Flickr messages!

We're really excited to start showcasing the talent of our members with guest design spots this year and we announced something new and exciting about that in this discussion post: Please take a minute to read that post and comment if you're interested in guest designing for us here in our Flickr group!

Okay, the theme for challenge #88 is "Water Coloring" and we have a wonderful, talented guest designer here today, to give you some inspiration! Her name is Sharon and she is sharing three fabulous cards! She used our Roses For You stamp set on all three. You can click on the cards to see them in a larger version.

Here's her first card:

Isn't that a fun?! We love how she used the stamp set to create that pretty background! So clever!

How beautiful is this card?! She used such pretty colors on all those roses and we think the design is fabulous!

This one's a beauty too! We love the elegant colors and bits of sparkle! Swoon!

You can find more of Sharon's work here:



Now it's your turn to create a card or project using water coloring!

Here's a reminder of the rules:

--- Each card or project created for the challenge must use at least one Simon Says Stamp exclusive brand image, such as their stamps, stencils or dies. This is an important rule. Simon sponsors this group and these challenges, so it's only fair that players use Simon's very own products.

--- Please upload cards to your Flickr photostream and tag them with the appropriate tag name. For this week's challenge it will be SSSFlickrchallenge#88 all one word with no spaces. Tagging photos is easy - just find the "add tag" area, below and to the right, when looking at any photo in your photostream, click it, add the tag, then press enter.

--- Please mention in your photo-description, underneath your photo, that your card or project is for the challenge. Also, please let us know which SSS exclusive products you used.

--- Don't forget to add your photo to the SSS Flickr group.

--- Projects for the challenges must be newly created.

--- Submit as many projects as you like for each challenge.

--- You can add your card or project to no more than three other challenges.

--- If you share projects made for our challenges on your blogs too, please share the inspiration graphic in your post (if there is one) and also please add a link back to this discussion thread.

--- We'd love it if you could take a small amount of time, after uploading your card or project to the group, to comment on a few other group members' photos. We all love to receive encouragement for our creations!

You have until Thursday, 9:00am EDT, January 18, 2018 to upload your cards/projects to the SSS Flickr group. The random winners will be announced shortly thereafter, on the same day, in a new discussion thread.

There will be TWO winners, randomly selected from all the entries. Each winner will receive a $25.00 gift card to the Simon Says Stamp online store!

We're on Instagram!

Do you use Instagram? If so, please add the tag, #sssflickrchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them there too! (When using this tag for Instagram, remember it is WITHOUT the challenge #)

Please show Sharon some love with a comment below!

Have fun with the challenge!
