Congratulations to you both! Please send an email to erica@mftstamps.com to claim your prize. And thank you to everyone that commented on our Design Team blogs. We appreciate you all!


The Olympics have started — are you as excited as we are? We’re so excited in fact, we’re hosting our own Creative Olympics and we want each and every one of you to compete.

Just like the Olympics, crafting brings people together. We can’t wait to spend the next two weeks bringing the competition right to your home. Compete with your fellow cardmakers, feel pride in the cards you create in response to each event, and maybe even walk away from the 2018 Creative Olympics with a medal!

If you need some inspiration…some examples of grit, determination, and stamina as you tackle each event, turn on the PyeongChang games to watch as you compete — I know that’s what we’ll be doing in the weeks to come!

THE VENUES

We have a number of venues for you to visit over the course of this epic event. You’ll find events and activities at each so make sure you visit them all — you don’t want to miss a single event!

Olympic Stadium — Our blog is your home base. You’ll be able to participate in challenges shared today and February 14 and our medal ceremony will be held right here on February 22.

Olympic Village — Our Challenge & Inspiration Blog will host two events as well. Mark your calendars for February 12 and 16 for Olympic Village events to be shared.

Olympic Park — Meet up on our Facebook page to mix and mingle with fellow Olympians and participate in Q&As about your impressive training regimen 😉

THE MEDALS

It wouldn’t be the Olympics without the iconic medals! We have a stash ready and waiting to be bestowed upon our event winners.

Gold medal: $100 MFT Voucher — One winner randomly selected from participants that complete all 4 events.

Silver medals: $50 MFT Voucher — One winner randomly selected from each event.

Bronze medals: $15 MFT Voucher — Winners randomly selected from Olympic Park Q&A events.

RULES & REGULATIONS

  • Create brand new/original cards using any theme you like. Previously posted cards will not be considered. There is no limit to the number of entries you submit for each event.
  • Use stamps, Die-namics, stencils, and patterned papers from My Favorite Things. Cards using other products will be disqualified immediately, so get creative with the MFT products that you have on hand! Use whatever card stock and inks you have available.
  • Submit your card(s) to the InLinkz collection found at the end (the finish line!) of each event post on or before 10 PM EST on Monday, February 19.
  • When submitting your card, please simply use your name in the Link Title section.
  • International entries are most DEFINITELY welcome!

All winners will be announced at our Closing Ceremony on Thursday, February 22, so make sure to check back to see if you are one of our medalists!

EVENT 1

The Stamping Slalom will test your creativity in combining images. Create one card that includes at least three separate stamp sets — any three MFT sets in your collection!

Your card doesn’t need to be in the Olympic vein like Stephanie’s but it sure is a fun little touch to tie it into the event theme! She’s gone above and beyond by including four characters — each from a different stamp set! A wintry theme ties them together though to create a cohesive scene featuring a variety of brrrrr-illiant outdoor activities.

Are you ready to go for the gold? On your marks, get set, GO.

    Love this card, Stephanie! Especially liked watching you color the images and create the wonderful background. I’m not very good with copics but have found that I can use similar techniques with Prisma color pencils. I’m super excited about MFT’s Creative Olympics and look forward to joining in the fun!
