Good morning all. First I must apologize to everyone. I was not able to post the challenge last week (for medical reasons, completely unexpected). I owe Donna from the team a debt of gratitude. In my absence, she kept the Facebook page and the designer site running and I thank her for it. Had I known what would occur, I would have arranged for someone to post here as well. She will never know how much I appreciate everything she did. Now on to Challenge #332. Not surprisingly, the sketch is from Donna. Again, thank you.
Beautiful cards, ladies! Once again, thanks so much for keeping things going. I know we will get lots of entries for this really great challenge. As always, the sketch runs for two weeks and you can enter below or on our Facebook page.
Good morning to everyone! Summer is in full swing here and the weather is beautiful. I hope you are enjoying pleasant conditions wherever you are. This week, we have a beautiful sketch thanks to Donna. Here it is:
This week we are a little light on examples from the team. Some times life just gets in the way. Here are the cards from the team:
Beautiful cards, ladies. What is missing in quantity has been surpassed by quality. I know you will inspire our viewers to create some gorgeous cards of their own. I hope everyone can find a little crafting time this week.
Remember everyone, you have two weeks to get your cards done and I cannot wait to see what everyone creates.
Hello and happy Wednesday! It is time for our top cards for challenge #327. We had several great entries for this sketch. Thanks to everyone who played along. Here are the top 3 (in no particular order):
Good morning to all and happy Fourth of July to all of our American friends! I hope it is a gorgeous day wherever you are. This week, our sketch is courtesy of Donna. I love this sketch (reminds me of a men's tuxedo).
The optional theme is "Dainty and Neat". And here are the great cards from our team:
Wow! Great cards, team.....and very inspirational. I know our followers will want to grab their supplies, sit outside in the beautiful summer weather (if you live in the northern hemisphere) or snuggle up (if you are in the southern half of the world) and create something amazing. And I for one cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with.
As always, you have two weeks to play along and you can enter below or on our Facebook page.
Hello to everyone out there. Hope all is well with you and your families. Our sketch this week is courtesy of Donna and the optional theme is "Summer Heat". You are not required to use the theme; it is just a guideline (in case you need a little nudge). Here is the sketch:
And here are the cards created by our team to inspire you:
Good morning! Hope all is well for everyone. We have another great sketch from Kaylin this week AND we have a guest designer. A few weeks back, we ran a contest to choose a guest designer (chosen by random generator) and Karen Finkle was our lucky winner. Here is what Karen says about herself: My first exposure to stamping was in 2011 and I was not interested. In 2012 I was invited to an "open house" and made four cards. I bought Lovely as a Tree, Plant Hope and the sample inks and sample cardstock. We traveled in an RV in 2012 and 2013 so I didn't make too many cards. In 2014 our RVing came to a screeching halt due to my husband's health. For stress relief, I started working on cards. In January 2016 I became a Stampin' Up Demonstrator and I was my sole customer. In March 2017 I resigned as a demonstrator. However, I feel like it won't be too long before I do it again as I love challenges as it gets those creative juices flowing! I am thankful that CherylAnn gave me the opportunity to be a Guest Designer on Try Stampin' - Or Not - On Tuesday
. This is our sketch:
The Optional Technique is "All Bolds or All Pastels".
Great cards, ladies! Very inspirational. I am certain our viewers will want to play along after seeing your cards. Thank you so much for being on our team and thank you to Karen for joining us this week.
Followers, as always, you have two weeks to join in the fun and you can enter below or on our Facebook page. Happy creating, all!
Good morning to everyone! Happy Tuesday! It is a gorgeous morning here -the kind of day you want to sit under a shade tree and perhaps do some crafting, especially card making. I hope you get the chance to play along with our sketch (courtesy of Kaylin).
The OPTIONAL theme: Wiggles and Waves Here are the examples from our team:
Very cool cards from the team. Awesome use of the sketch! I am sure your work has inspired our viewers. And I am certain we will see some great cards from our followers as well. Thank you so much for being members of this team.
I cannot wait to see what everyone out there creates. Remember, you can post below or on our Facebook page and you have two weeks to play along. Happy creating!
