Heart Dare to Get Dirty 2014



Come celebrate with us
Since July of 2004, we’ve thanked our Fan Club members for supporting Splitcoast financially with a themed monthly gallery. We think up a theme, and our twelve talented designers create away, filling the gallery with all kinds of things to inspire and enable, and to give you a little something extra for your contributions to Splitcoast. We know you love to ogle the projects every month, and we know you’re all immensely talented, too.


Then we thought - how fun would it be get our Fan Club members to play along in challenges with us? With that thought, Dare to Get Dirty week was born. We're happy to celebrate our 10th anniversary with you with a week full of stamping challenges.

So what’s this all about?

Easy. It’s all about you. Sure, we’re playing, too, but we want to see what you do when you're challenged!

Our Dirty Dozen Designers, both past and present, have a fun week planned for you. You’ll see a little of everything – inspiration, 3D items, color and layout challenges, techniques, tutorials . . . . and besides the stamping part of things, we wanted to add something else, more personal interaction! We’ve got everything all pre-posted and ready to go, and the girls will be there in the chat threads to answer any of your pressing questions. If you’ve ever wondered how someone does something, ask away. They’re there to dish and share their dirty little secrets with you! We will even have a fun, new live chat feature waiting for you in the challenge forum!

Do I have to do them all?

Nah, just do what you can or what grabs you, or just jump in and chat with the girls if you can’t actually stamp during the challenges. We want to see your work and get to know you better!

What if I do do them all?

Good question! How about a prize drawing for those who complete all of the challenges (combining challenges is cool, of course!) and upload by August 11th at 11:59 PM CST?

Number of Winners? Well, we probably better have a dozen! And our sponsors this year are our AMAZING Member Companies, so get ready to win products from your favorite companies!

So when does it all start?
Saturday, August 2nd, we’ll post the first set of challenges here, and will continue posting challenges through Friday, August 8th.

Are there any rules?

Have fun! Combine challenges, go nuts with one challenge and do ten entries. Upload to your gallery, post your creations on your blog . . . just keep the details of the challenges in the Fan Club forum, okay? (This means in your description, don't say: "This card is for Kim's challenge to use blue and yellow - challenge details are for Fan Club members only) That’s it!

Only Fan Club Members will be able to upload to this event gallery and win prizes, but everyone will be able to view and comment on your creations.

So if you haven't joined the Fan Club yet - what are you waiting for? This is your Dirty Dare! Join here and join in the fun!

Maybe you're remembering that as well as the prize-winners who completed all the challenges with combining, there was also a Queens thread for those who made a separate card for each challenge?? Like with HYCCT where you're eligible just for taking part but the Queens thread is for those who made one for every single challenge...

Grins, I meant to add an edit to the post to say don't worry, you're not that old yet...but I got sidetracked tidying some stuff off my desk.

Hopefully I will have full use of the internet by the weekend. Lightening has knocked it out of my computer. I'm currently using my neighbor's IPad and wireless connection. My son is going to fix it, but he's tied up with moving and a sick child. If worse comes to worse, I can do the challenges and upload them all at once.

Oh no, Lois! Hopefully you will have your internet connection back by Saturday. It's so nice of your neighbor to let you use her iPad to check your email and SCS. Crossing my fingers for ya!

Let's hope its working soon. I would hate to see you have to upload 40 or more cards in one day!
