Challenge #300 - A Sketch for our Birthday!

Hello, and welcome!  This is our 300th challenge, and our blog turns six years old in a couple of days!  We are celebrating these milestones with our challenge this week. 


For this sketch, since it's our 6th birthday, you must use six of any single type of shape - six hearts, or six circles, or six diamonds, for example - stretched along one of the long sides of your card.  Feel free to rotate the sketch on its side or flip it upside-down or mirror-image when creating your card.  

Our awesome design team has created the following cards to jump start your creativity:

Our blog's success is due to those of you who join in our challenges, and we want to show our appreciation by giving away a prize.  One lucky winner whose card meets our challenge requirements will be chosen from our participants in this week's challenge, and will receive an in-stock stamp set of the winner's choice from UnikoUniko Ltd. is a small family-run business based in the United Kingdom, and it specializes in high quality clear photopolymer stamps designed specifically for stampers by an avid stamper. 

 

Thank you, Uniko, for sponsoring our birthday challenge!  The prize winner will be announced on Friday, December 7, 2018 along with our Weekly Winners for this week's challenge.

Challenge #299 - Colours

Hi everyone!  The third week of November gives us another colour challenge.  This week's colours bring the quickly approaching Christmas season to mind, but perhaps you can think of a different way to use them.
 

Although we use Stampin' Up colour names for reference, you may use any companies' products for your cards as long as you match our colours as closely as possible. You may also use neutral colours (white, cream, kraft, brown, grey, metallics, or black) for card layers, sentiments, and image outlines.  However, in order to be considered for our Weekly Winners, you must not include any other colours.

Our design team has created the following cards to inspire you:

Guest Designer - Izzy


We'd like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends!  We are thankful for you and your participation in our challenges!

Challenge #298 - Sketch

Hello!  It's time for our first sketch challenge of the month, brought to you by Patricia.  Check it out:


A while ago I was browsing online for ideas and found this card, which totally inspired today's sketch.  I always like the look of scallops even though I don't use them often on my cards, so I thought this would make a good challenge!  The sketch is designed for an A2 sized card (4.25" x 5.5"), but you can stretch it to a landscape-oriented rectangle if you'd like.  Of, if you prefer to create square cards, you may manipulate it into a square.  You could also rotate the sketch on its side or move the placement of the sentiment.  The important thing is that you keep the idea of a scalloped line stretching across the card.
