In with You Stamp Contest, Stampin Up


monsterMonstermaniacs, designed by Doris D., is the second winning stamp set from “In With You,” Stampin’ Up’s new stamp set design challenge. In July, art enthusiasts were given the challenge to create a monster themed stamp set. Voters fell in love with Doris’ cute artwork and voted the set to victory! Here’s what she had to say about her creation: “I tried to create some scary subjects for my submission…. obviously cute wins over creepy!!! I guess these are the type of monsters I would want to see on my greeting cards… my age I don’t handle scary very well, lol!!! I also tried to incorporate a variety of subjects…even a 3 eyed fashionista! Not sure how many of you can remember the old television message, “Please don’t adjust your antenna, it is not the fault of your receiver!” Enjoy, I hope I created some monsters that tickle your fancy!”
