Weekly Winners - Sketch Challenge #235

Wow!  We had a fantastic turnout for last week's sketch challenge!  Thank you to everyone who participated.  We loved seeing what everyone created!  Based on the number of entries in last week's challenge, the CC&S Design Team would normally select five Weekly Winners; however, there were so many terrific entries that our voting resulted in a tie.  So we're awarding an additional card this week compared to usual.  :)  In order of entry into the challenge, we congratulate:






Amazing job, everyone! Please feel welcome to copy our winners' badge and display it on your blog:

You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time/11:00 p.m. London U.K. time Monday, August 21 to link your card to the challenge post. We'd love to have you join us!

Challenge #236 - Colors

Hi, folks; Karen here. When I came up with this color scheme I was in the throes of summer. It has cooled down, but this scheme is still inspiring to me. I hope it will be to you as well!


We've used Stampin' Up colour names for reference; however, 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, or black) for card layers, sentiments, and image outlines. However, in order to be considered for our weekly winners, you must not use any other colours.

Here is some inspiration from the design team to jump start your creativity:


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/11:00 p.m. London U.K. time Monday, August 21, 2017

Weekly Winners - Colour Challenge #234

Uh oh - it looks like our last colour challenge was a bit more challenging than some of our others, or else people were busy with summer vacations or back-to-school shopping, because our participation numbers were a little lower than usual.  Thank you to everyone who joined in it!  We always enjoy seeing what our participants create.  The Design Team has chosen the following cards as our Weekly Winners.  In order of entry into the challenge, we congratulate:




Well done, ladies! Please feel welcome to copy our winners' badge and display it on your blog:

Challenge #235 - Sketch

Hello again!  We're glad to have you visit our challenge blog, and we hope you'll join in and play along with us!  Patricia is our hostess again this week, and she's drawn up this sketch for us:


You may use any shape except a rectangle or a square in place of the circular shape, so long as it gives the look of being cut off the edge of the card.  You're welcome to flip the sketch mirror-image, or rotate it 90 degrees in either direction.  Although the sketch is drawn up as a rectangular card, if you would prefer to make a square card, that's OK, too!
  
Check out what the CC&S Design Team and August Guest Designer have done with the sketch:
