Cornish Heritage Farms’ Summer StampStar Design Challenge

CHF is excited to announce a 5 week long design challenge which will run from June 29th, 2009 until August 2nd, 2009. Stampers will have the opportunity to show us their creativity throughout those lazy days of summer!

The Details:
1. Participate in a weekly stamping challenge for five consecutive weeks to earn a guest spot in September 2009, on the CHF Design Team
2. Each week will feature a different challenge where you have the opportunity to upload one image of your design or project into a special gallery for that challenge at the CHF Forum website. The gallery will be open for each challenge and then closed before the next challenge begins.
3. One winner will be selected per week based on design merit and will receive a $50 rubber stamp credit to select from any of the hundreds of stamps that might suit their fancy at
4. At the end of the five challenge weeks, any participant that has submitted projects to all five challenge galleries will be juried by our team and one winner who has shown consistent design excellence throughout the challenges will win the entire CHF stamp release for the month of September and a Guest Design Team spot to show off their skills. This designer will be featured on the blog and be included in our newsletter - after all that work, we want to share the talents of this fabulous designer with the stamping community!

So what are you doing this summer? Will it be You?
