Challenge #347 - Sketch

Hello there everyone!  It's sketch challenge week at CC&S!  We want to see you get creative with this:


In the vast world of card making challenges, it's not always easy to come up with unique sketch ideas that follow our blog's clean and simple style of crafting.  This week we do ask that you try to keep the diamond-shaped element something angular, stretching to the left and right sides of the card.  You are welcome to rotate the sketch on its side or to squash it into a landscape-oriented rectangle if you would like.

Our design team has created the following cards to inspire you.  As shown in our samples, a lot of us are starting to get into a winter holiday mood, but of course you can make your card for any occasion you desire. 

Guest Designer - Shannon


Our challenge requirements are listed in the Challenge Rules tab. Please read them carefully before linking your card. Happy crafting!


Challenge End Time: 6:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time Monday, November 18, 2019


Please link your card below. We look forward to seeing what you create!

Challenge #346 - Colors

Hello!  Welcome to November and to another month of challenges here at CC&S!  We're kicking off the month with a color challenge created by Patricia:


For our colour challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colours. You may also use neutral colours; however, the challenge colours should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up colour names for reference, but you are welcome to use any companies' products as long as you match the challenge colours as closely as possible.

Here is some inspiration from our design team:


We are continuing our Guest Designer program with someone who has been participating in our challenges for the last several months.  She was chosen from our September Weekly Winners.  Please join us in welcoming Shannon Lorenz-Hatch!  Here's her card using this week's colors:
