Pile It On #32 - Primary Colors

This week at the Pile It On Challenge our theme is Primary Colors. You can incorporate other colors, but the main color palette must be red, yellow & blue.

We're sponsored this week by Bugaboo Stamps and one lucky participant will win 7 digis from their store!

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

Pile It On #31 - Stitching Real or Faux

It's Sunday and that means time for another challenge here at Pile It On!
Our challenge is "Stitching", you can do machine stitching, hand stitching, pen stitching (like me) or even rub ons that look like stitching, any stitching at all!

Our sponsor is All Dressed Up Stamps, and they offering a prize of 2 digi stamps of the winner's choice!
Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters, in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends. I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors. I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork. Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers . All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping. The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls. We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis. We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.
