Challenge 5

Welcome to a new month and a new challenge here at the Clarity Stamp challenge.

Since the last challenge Barbara has had a chance to take a break with Dave and the family in France in an idyllic cottage. Doesn't it look lovely?

For those of you following the stories on facebook, they all spent the evenings playing trivial pursuit and having great fun. Let's hope Barbara has come back all nice and refreshed and ready to do battle with the every day grind of business again.

The next DVD is going to be recorded mid month so we will be bringing you updates on that, there are more workshops and then of course we have the "In the Classroom" and the Clarity shows on Create and Craft on  Saturday 6th July and Sunday 7th July.

Don't miss Clarity Take 2 with Maria Simms on Tuesday 16th July, more details coming up with show times.


Last months challenge "MR & MRS" was certainly a popular one with those romantics amongst you wasn't it?  It also linked up nicely with the release of the New Design Club stamp "Lovebirds"!  We had quite a few entries using this stamp but they were all so different and using different techniques.  Zentangle also seemed to make an appearance in the challenge entries too.

The lucky winner of the £50 Clarity voucher and our top 5 can be found in the post below.

Here's the theme for our new challenge which will run
throughout July:

Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside
(using Clarity stamps ONLY)

We thought we'd try and entice the sun to stay out with some seaside fun and frivolity.  So grab your swimming costumes and "kiss me quick" hats and come and join us down on the beach to make some sand castles.  There may also be some ice cream and candy floss for you too!

For this challenge we'd love to see your take on fun in the sun so the possibilities are endless, but don't forget you can only use your Clarity stamps.  We have some great ones to choose from in our nautical section or seaside set if you're stuck for ideas.  The Clarity Stamp design team have had their own ideas on this theme too.  If you'd like to know which stamps they've used please visit their personal blogs by clicking on their projects.

There are several ways of entering the challenge:
  • BLOG - if you a blog, click on the blue froggy link below and follow the instructions, remembering to link to your blog post and not just your blog
  • EMAIL - if you don't have a blog you can send a photo of your project to us and we'll enter it for you

If you have any questions relating to this challenge please don't hesitate to contact us.  We will answer as quickly as we can in the hope that we can make the Clarity Stamp Challenge go from strength to strength.  We can't do this without you!

We hope you have fun with this challenge and we can't wait to see your projects.  You have until 20.00 on 31st July (GMT) to enter.

xx Happy crafting and Clarity hugs xx
