Winner Announcements for June Freebie Contest

Are you ready for the announcement of the winners for my June Freebie Contests at Sparkle and Glitter (SNG) and Airless Chambers (AC). My RSD Elite Design Team did the voting. There is no random.org involved.

First Place winner for BOTH blogs is KristyLee. Amazing work Kristy. You can see Kristy’s work with more details of Desdemona for SNG here, and her little piece of art with more details using Voodoo Skull Man for AC here. Congratulations KristyLee! And because you are first place winner for both blogs, you get to pick out six digis of your choice from my Etsy shop.  Please email me, rickstdennis@yahoo.com, with your choices.

Now for our Second Place Winners. Again, for both blogs, we had 2nd place ties. With a tie, there will be no Third Place winner. Each of the 2nd place winners will receive two digis of their choice from my Etsy shop.

Our Second Place winners for SNG are:

Happy Summer

Summertime sometimes requires a little inspiration to get crafting-so many other fun outside things to do...

Here's MEET ME IN ST LOUIS from Jen - I love the colours and the wonderful floral she did.
Jen's shading is all her own and so unique-full of depth and subtle tones.

NATALIYA sent me her lovely version of WALTZ and I thought these colours went so well with Jen's project...cool and feminine. Here is the finished project Nat did with WALTZ:

Nataliya is another designer who does things her own way and shades beautifully.

Here's PIA a new Randi Dandi you can find over at I BRAKE FOR STAMPS-this very summery card is by JEN also.

Be sure and stop by IBFS and start watching for HALLOWEEN designs-there will be a LOT of new Halloween in the RANDI DANDI STYLE around the beginning of JUNE 2013.

Don't forget to get your entries in for the FREEBIE CHALLENGES at Airless Chambers and Sparkle and Glitter-still time to enter to win some free images...

It's official RANDI DANDI images are now available in their new home on I BRAKE FOR STAMPS-Della will be selling the line-digis for now but if response is good rubber may follow so wander on over and take a peek.

I BRAKE FOR STAMPS was for a number of years my exclusive rubber stamp provider and now is the exclusive home of the RANDI DANDI line.

IBFS is opening with SEVEN new previously unreleased images, all your old favorites including the ALICE IN WONDERLAND set and I will be providing new images to DELLA and IBFS on a regular basis.

If you would like to see a particular RANDI DANDI image available in RUBBER be sure to let them know!

Thanks to DELLA for doing such a great job putting together the new RANDI DANDI shoppe and thanks to my EDT for providing many coloured samples for her Gallery pages.

I BRAKE FOR STAMPS continues to sell Rick's Teddy Bear stamps exclusively and some other misc designs including MERMAIDS - find them HERE.

SNS Skull A Bration Blog Hop

YAY...it's that time again...I just LOVE the Smeared and Smudged SKULL A BRATION blog hop and this year I feel particularly involved.

As many of you know I am now a designer for the Smeared Ink Rubber Club and my first set (which just happens to be skulls) premiers this month.

Interesting story: I had asked that as many of my EDT ladies as possible participate in the blog hop this year and offered to draw special images by request.

I got many interesting ideas from my gang and I tend to draw my best work when I am inspired.

I did what I thought were particularly good designs for LADY B, HELEN, SUZI and HAZEL and in between was doing general designs so I would be ready for the hop with fresh merchandise in my shoppe.

It happened that during all this I also was asked to submit my designs to Smeared Ink so I used some of the designs I had just completed plus some images drawn especially for SI.

In all I believe the sheet ended up with 10 designs including the special request designs for my EDT-I couldn't tell them what was going on because we had a specific announcement date for the collection...lots of suspense there for awhile.

In the end it was really fun because it made my design team a big part of my excitement and the whole release process---I also think it's fun for them to know that they were the inspirations for those particular designs.

Lady B Excavation

Hazel Autumn Window

Suzi Common Grave

Helen Spellography - Helen was also the inspiration for HEXOLOGY still in my ETSY shoppe

Miranda Yet another nap -Not in rubber but she did ask for the image

In honor of the blog hop my first Saturday freebie on AIRLESS CHAMBERS was also a SKULL related image with a little bit of VooDoo thrown in; If you haven't grabbed that one you might want to scoop him up as you HOP by.

We do a challenge each month using the FREEBIE images where you can win a choice of up to 3 images from my ETSY shoppe for first prize. All winners are juried no random number picks.

I have a whole SKULLS section on my ETSY shoppe with my brand new designs; There are also TWO special skull collections at great discount prices available...that would be HERE.

You will be hopping on to Airless Chambers from here so don't forget to grab the freebie after you admire all the fabulous SKULL projects from my EDT...if you aren't a follower of Airless Chambers you might want to add it to your list-we have a free image the first Saturday of each month on BOTH of my EDT blogs (Airless Chambers, Sparkle and Glitter).

The Airless Chambers image is always a little edgy and dark and Sparkle and Glitter is more middle of the road (I don't do much "CUTE") AND if that's not enough freebies for you you might want to be added to my Fan Club Mailing list-I send out a newsletter once a month with exclusive offers, discount codes, etc. and always a fan club freebie surprise attached.

To join the mailing list you must snd an email to rickstdennis@yahoo.com with your email address in the body of the email and a request to be added to the list-we do it this way because of spamming laws and it is the ONLY way you can be added.

Well my SKULL is aching from trying to remember all I wanted to share with you but I think I covered it all-have a super time on the hop route-you'll find the list below.

I just can't resist the urge so here is a special FREE digi image only available here and today ONLY!!

This crazy dude in his SKULL T shirt was featured on my Klub Kidz digi sheet and has come out of the archives to point the way to the next blog stop...he's yours for FREE Today Only.
Just click on the image to get the larger version the right click and use the save picture option to save him to your hard drive.

Thanks for visiting and watch for my SKULL images on your journey...I can only give away so many freebies because I have wonderful supportive customers so please support my ETSY shoppe.
