Welcome, everyone to the official kick-off of Stamp-a-faire 2015! I know some of you are waking up at 4am on the west coast this morning to join us! Make sure you have plenty of coffee! And maybe click play on our SAF 2015 Spotify playlist at the top of the blog to help put a little pep into your step stamp! Are you ready for your first challenge?
To start things off, check out this little Project Runway Rewind recap moment from Season 13, Episode 6 where the designers were asked to design an unconventional wedding dress! Even though most of the designers did not stick with white for their creations, take a look at all the little details for inspiration!
Here comes the bride, all dressed in white. Except in this case, it's a wedding card that you will be presenting using nothing but white supplies! The only exception to the rule is that you are allowed to use a neutral ink color (black, gray, brown, etc...) to add a stamped sentiment to the card. So dig out all of your favorite supplies, especially dies, and build a card based on texture rather than color. This is a fun approach to designing so just kick back and let the creativity flow!
Check out the team's take on this fabulous challenge! Click on the link under each of their sneak peeks to see the full card and other details on their individual blogs!

Isn't everything just fabulous? I love how many of them incorporated vellum to, which is so pretty and sheer, a little like tulle! Now it's your turn! Don't forget to *shop your accessory* wall for this one! Adhesive pearls and bling are a must for a wedding card!
