June Challenge 6/17


Hello and welcome back to our Challenge Blog post!  Let’s start by announcing our May Challenge results!


The winner of our May Tic Tac Toe Challenge is… Dana Gong!


We love how fun Dana’s DIY patterned paper is with all the adorable elements found in our Love and a Dog Set.  The gold stripes and shaker elements completed the Tic Tac Toe challenge.

Congratulations, Dana! Please email us at thetonstamps@gmail.com to claim your gift certificate and details on being our guest designer for our July Challenge!



Here are three additional projects that especially stood out to us:


We adore how Penny created an amazing dimensional box card with our Marvelous Perfumes and Wishful Wildflowers.


Michelle created a pretty non rectangular card with gilding accents using our Sending Peonies.

Terri created a fun Sunflower shaker card using our Fresh Cut Sunflowers Outline set.

All of the entries were so beautiful and we’d like to thank everyone who participated for our May Tic Tac Toe Challenge!


For this month’s new theme, we have a gorgeous Color Palette Challenge!
