Dare to Get Dirty 2012
1 Attachment(s)

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 eighth 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! :wink: How about a prize drawing for those who complete all of the challenges (combining challenges is cool, of course!) and upload by August 6th?

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, July 28th, we’ll post the first set of challenges here, and will continue posting challenges through Friday, August 3rd.

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 here, okay? That’s it!

Only Fan Club Members will be able to upload to this event gallery, 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!

(Blog blinkie attached!)

What a treat for us stampers! Can't wait :)

MistiRose 07-27-2012 07:41 AM

I have just found Splitcoaststampers and become a member. I have no idea how the challenges work but I am looking forward to jumping in with both feet - lucky me I only have one day to wait with baited breath! I look forward to seeing what everyone creates (and can't wait to hear what the challenges are!). Nothing too challenging I hope since I am fairly new to this. :)

Best of luck to everyone,

UnderstandBlue 07-27-2012 08:04 AM

Hi Misti! Welcome!

We will help you every step of the way, I promise and I'm always here if you need help.

Be sure and join the Fan Club to participate in Dare to get Dirty - you can read about the Fan Club here: Join the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club: Special Galleries, Forums & More

irishgreensue 07-27-2012 09:24 AM

Lydia, what time will the challenges be getting posted each day - I know I am gonna be late on Saturday (going to a Creating Keepsakes event) but I will have Sat night to catch up - really looking forward to this!! The dirty girls always have so much inspiration for us!!

UnderstandBlue 07-27-2012 09:42 AM

This year is no exception. The challenges are so fun we were all fighting over being sample makers - LOL - so the galleries will be full of pretty samples right from the start.

I will move the challenges each day no later than 8 AM and probably a good deal earlier. (CST) but 8 at the outside. Just one more sleep!

hlw966 07-27-2012 10:14 AM

I want to play... and hubby is away all Saturday! Woohoo!! Better run over to the fan club and reactivate my membership.

kenaijo 07-27-2012 10:14 AM

I did not know about this special week of challenges in the past. I am excited to participate this year. I am blessed not to be working next week. Thank you sponsors for your generosity.

LMONROE 07-27-2012 10:55 AM

I've never played in this before but I'm excited to try. I hope I can get all the challenges complete. I love all those sponsor companies and would love a chance at a prize.

berlycece 07-27-2012 11:29 AM

Added the widget to my blog...going to clear off my space so I can get messy...errr, ummm, Dirty, tomorrow!

lazylizard 07-27-2012 03:30 PM

Great prizes, and looking for another week of fun. I love taking part in these fabulous challenges. It is always good to see some of the DD girls again.

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 07:42 PM.
