Woohoo! I really love our Wednesday challenges. 😀 Today’s Designers Choice Challenge is a fun technique challenge. Repeat Rock Star, Patti J. Gilliam is challenging you to create a card that includes paper piecing. This is such a great technique and the possibilities are endless!

Check out this fabulous autumn card ensemble Patti created to get us all started.

So a few days ago Patti shared this inspiration card with her fellow Rock Stars and asked them to create their own card with paper piecing. Check out all these fantastic cards they came up with… what a great variety!

Now we’d love for you to play along with us!

Here are all the details…
1. Create a card that includes the paper piecing technique. And remember, your card does not have to be made with Repeat Impressions stamps, but if you would like to include our designs we would reeeally love to see them! 😀 Plus, there’s an added bonus… you will get an additional entry in our random.org drawing for using our stamps in your submissions!
2. Post your DCC card on your blog or online gallery and be sure to reference Repeat Impressions DCC926 ~ Paper Piecing Challenge. Then link it here with the inlinkz widget below. (Please provide a direct link to your post, not the entire blog.)
3. Submissions will be accepted until Tuesday, October 9th at 5PM EST.
4. On October 10th we will introduce a new Designer’s Choice Challenge (DCC) to play along with and after that challenge wraps up at the end of the month we will announce a winner for October. For this challenge the winner will receive any one unmounted sheet of stamps of their choice!

Today we’re also announcing the winner of our September DCCs. So now without further ado… Our friends at random.org have selected… Angela B as our September winner. Congratulations, Angela! You just won an unmounted sheet of rubber stamps… any sheet of your choice! Please leave a comment here and I will contact you on how to make your selection.

Don’t forget that we also have a fun Sketch Challenge happening now too. There is still another week left to get in on this one and an opportunity to win a $25 Repeat Impressions gift certificate! Please follow this link to my WHAT IF? Wednesday ~ Sketch Challenge S1912 post to see my sketch layout and all the wonderful cards the Rock Stars created to get you started.

Today it’s time to introduce a new Stamp of the Week! Since I usually tend to lean more towards cat images, this time I’m throwing our dog lovers a bone and featuring our 8101-L Bulldog image. This stamp is not only great for pet lovers, but for some of those school sports teams and mascots too.

Here are a few cards some of the Rock Stars have created for your inspiration!
