Rules and Such…

The IBS Inspiration Challenge is all about inspiring you and your creativity. Simply follow the requirements for each week’s challenge. You are welcome to submit any type of project unless the challenge calls for something specific.

Here are the rules to be eligible for the monthly prize…

You may enter as many times as you wish, but please only enter newly created projects for submission (no back-dated projects that have been previously posted on your blog).

You may only combine our challenge with up to 12 other challenges. We value your participation, creations and your efforts but please value our time with our challenge as well.

… if for some reason your card or project does not meet the weekly challenge requirements, it will not be removed from the gallery, but simply will not be considered for the monthly prize.

Please read our instructions carefully so your hard work does not go unnoticed! We understand that art is very subjective and is viewed differently through each individual’s eyes. We know that colors can photograph one way and look differently on the computer screen. All we ask is that you submit your best work that reflects the current weekly challenge as closely as possible.

When your project is ready for submission, please link your creation here using our linking system which will be at the end of each challenge. Post your creation on your blog, or an alternate online gallery, linking back to The Inspired by Stamping Challenge. When using a public forum, please tag with the specific IBSIC# for easy access.

PLEASE POST ONLY THE LINK TO YOUR ENTRY … not your entire blog or multiple projects.

Links to the entire blog, links with multiple project submissions and links not linked back to us will not be considered for the monthly prize.

Weekly challenges will be posted each Thursday 2pm Australia Time/ 12am EST (America).

All entries must be linked by midnight EST Wednesday on Thursday or 2pm Australia Time.

To keep things fair for all participants, if you do not follow the above rules, your entry will not be considered.

If you have questions, please feel free to ask! We will be choosing a “Top 3 Inspiration” and “The Inspired by Stamping Winner” will be announced each Thursday.

Monthly winners will have one week to claim their prize.

If you are a Weekly Winner, you will be invited to Guest Design at the Inspired by Stamping website and proudly wear the Inspired by Stamping badge on your blog!

We love to leave you sweet comments, but Word Verification slows the process down. Please consider turning Word Verification OFF and leaving Comment Moderation ON! We are looking forward to seeing all your beautiful creations! Have fun!
