Hop through the blogs of our talented Design Team for a chance to win the digital stamp that they used on their project! In order to win, you must leave a comment & your e-mail on their blog posts.

Create a card or project using our challenge theme, link your project and leave a comment on on the Meljen's Challenge blog post. THREE friends will be randomly chosen to win TWO digital stamps of your choice.

This weeks challenge theme is:

Please note that we require the use of Meljen's Designs digital stamps for participation in this special challenge! Entries that do not use a Meljen's Designs digital stamp will be deleted before the random draw.

Here is my creation:

For this card... AND the image that you can WIN! is Banana Split. So be sure you leave a comment!! I colored this image with my Copic Markers. And I decoupaged the image. I popped the dish at an angle, the front vanilla ice cream and the cream. I added Diamond Glaze to the different sauces to give it a nice shine. I also added glitter to the cream at the top. There is sparkle fiber that I twisted around and the Candi. The sentiment is stamped and I thought it was fitting since this is a CELEBRATION!! I also added Candi to the inside to finish that off.

  • Cherry: R35, R37, R56
  • Strawberry Ice Cream: RV00, RV02, RV04
  • Vanilla Ice Cream: Y0000, E30, Y11
