Challenge #121 - Sketch

Hello there! Welcome to another new challenge, this week a sketch designed by our hostess for this month Louise, who says "I am really enjoying my month as hostess and I hope you are lovin' the challenges too". This time we're having a thing about triangles, you don't often see them in layouts so we thought we would give you all something a bit different. If you are wondering about the winners from last week's colour challenge ( and there were lots of gorgeous cards in the gallery, so thank you) just check back here after the weekend and in the meantime why not give this one a go?


Here is some inspiration from the design team to get your creative juices flowing:

Challenge #120 - Colours

Once again it is colour challenge week and Louise has chosen some bright, cheery ones for us this time.  Take a look:


While we've indicated the colours using Stampin' Up names, you do not have to use Stampin' Up products for your cards. Please do use colours that are close. You may also use white, ivory, kraft, or black for your card layers, for image outlines, or for sentiments. However, in order to be considered for our weekly winners, you must not use any other colours

Weekly Winners - Challenge #118

Thank you to everyone who participated in last week's color challenge!  We loved seeing what everyone created!

Along with the other recent changes to our challenge blog, we've decided to change up our weekly honours voting.  The Design Team will continue to vote for our favourite entries, but the amount of cards we will feature as Weekly Winners will depend on the number of submissions to the challenge, rather than simply limiting our honours to the three cards that receive the most votes.  This means that the more entries into the challenge, the more winners we'll have!

Without further ado, the Design Team has chosen the following cards as our Weekly Winners for our monochromatic greens challenge.  In order of entry into the challenge, we congratulate:

Challenge #118 - Colours

Hello, welcome to a new month of challenges, this time chosen by me, Louise, your hostess for April. I love Spring and it's in full flow here in the UK. So I've chosen greens this week for your inspiration, hope you will feel a 'spring in your step' when you create your CAS card for our challenge.


You may also use white, ivory, kraft, or black for your card layers, for image outlines, or for sentiments. However, in order to be considered for our Weekly Winners voting, you must not use any other colours.
