New Design Team Contest

Tiddly Inks is looking for a whole new design team....Whew! We are a new and growing group that has cute, fun digital stamps focused on whimsical kids and animals illustrated by Christy Croll. 

I (Christy) would much rather create the digital stamps than the card examples, so I need a dedicated and super fun design team to inspire me and others with their great creations and attitudes. Half the fun of stamping is doing it with your friends, so I want to create a virtual community where we can “stamp” together.  

You must be a member of Tiddly Inks group, be able to fulfill the duties, and have at least 5 posts to our message board in order to be considered (you have time to come by...hint, hint). We'd love to get to know you and have you know us. If you think you want to be part of this crazy outfit, then enter your card into the design team competition---which will be juried by our community voting. However, keep in mind that we still want you to be part of this even if you don't wish to participate in this contest. I am not an enter-a-contest sort of person myself, so please come hang out with me, see the creativity, and cheer on the others who do choose to participate. :)  

To enter, please do the following: 

  1. 1.Use the Annie digital stamp provided (you must go to PCP and check the discussion group section to download the zip). 
  2. Create a new card (two sketches have been provided in the zip file by Ria if you want to use them). 
  3. Use any colors you like. 
  4. Have fun creating! :)  

When you are done with your card, submit the following to tiddlyinks87@gmail.com by March 30, 5 PM EST. 

  1. A small JPEG of the photo....must be around 100 to 150 kb (Use your “Save image for web” button to create a small image). Please consider not including your watermark as the group will be voting on your submissions. 
  2. A short bio about yourself (include your name :D) 
  3. A list of DT's you are currently on if any (you don’t have to have any prior experience though) 
  4. A link to your blog (and PCP gallery if you have one)  

On March 31st, I will post a gallery (here or on PCP...not sure yet) using the pictures of qualified candidates and the community will vote between March 31 and April 10. If you submitted a card, you may vote. 

I will use the votes to help me pick five new members of the design team. :) The new design team will be notified on April 11. Design Team members will be eligible to participate for 3 full months (April, May June, July this term) and receive their choices of (TBD) images each month...and of course be part of a great community.:)  

As a design team member, your duties will be to: 

  • Post on the Tiddly Inks message board on a regular basis 
  • Help inspire other members by posting to our challenge blog at least once every two weeks  
  • Post a Tiddly card on your personal blog once a week (it can be the same card).
  • Create one "how-to", "tutorial" or "make and take" for the Tiddly Inks blog every six weeks or so 
  • Promote Tiddly Inks when and wherever possible (i.e. blogs, signature lines, etc) 
  • Be generally awe-inspiring...:)  

I hope that you decide to join our growing team. :) It will be fun!!! XOXO Christy
