Simon.Says.Stamp 2:05pm, 20 February 2015
Hi there and happy Friday!

We are so excited to have a VERY SPECIAL challenge for you this week! It’s been in the works for a while now and we think you’re all going to love it! We’ve teamed up with one of our favorite stamping companies to bring you the first ever, Flickr Co-Challenge with Lawn Fawn!!!

Flickr Co-Challenge by bdengler4 (Barb Summers Engler)

The guidelines will be a bit different this time, of course, so READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY!

The theme this week is “Get Crafty with Kraft.” We’d like to see cards/projects using kraft. It can be kraft paper or kraft colored inks. Wood paper would work too. Just so there is something with kraft, somewhere on your cards/projects.

1. You must use either Lawn Fawn’s exclusive stamps or dies, OR Simon Says Stamp’s exclusive stamps, dies or stencils on your creations.
2. If you choose to use only Lawn Fawn’s products, please add your cards/projects to Lawn Fawn’s Flickr group only.
3. If you choose to use only SSS products, please add your cards/projects to the SSS Flickr group only.
4. If you use BOTH companies’ products on your creation, you will be able to add it to BOTH Flickr groups and your chances of winning will be doubled! Woot!

Here is a reminder of the rules:
--- Each card or project created for the challenge must use at least one Simon Says Stamp, or one Lawn Fawn exclusive brand images, such as their stamps, stencils or dies. This is an important rule. Simon and Lawn Fawn sponsor these groups and these challenges, so it's only fair that players use Simon's and Lawn Fawn’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 #LFSSSchallenge#1 - 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 this challenge. Also, please let us know which SSS and/or Lawn Fawn exclusive products you used.

--- Don't forget to add your photo to the SSS and/or Lawn Fawn 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 two other challenges.

--- If you share projects made for this challenge on your blogs too, please share the graphic above in your post and add a link back to this discussion thread/challenge, and/or Lawn Fawn’s discussion thread/challenge. (Depending on which products you used.)

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

You have until Thursday, 9:00am EST March 5th, 2015 to upload your cards/projects to the SSS/Lawn Fawn Flickr groups. The random winners will be announced the same day at 10:00am EST in a new discussion thread in each group.

Both Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp will be giving away TWO $25.00 gift cards to their respective stores! That’s FOUR winners – yay!

You can check out Lawn Fawn’s discussion thread for this challenge right here:

Please leave a comment (or ask any questions you may have) below.
We can’t wait to hear what you think about this fun challenge, and see your take on using kraft! Good luck everyone and have fun!

I just happened to use a sss die. yay! and now i'm about to try to enter this challenge. (I have never entered any of my cards in a challenge before) wish me luck! I took a picture of the card and now i'm about to try to upload it to the right spot on flickr and with the right info on it. I cant wait! thanks so much for all the fun!:)
