Creating Pretty Cards – Sketch Challenge #67!

Each month in addition to the great 3D projects that we have for you, we also host a monthly card challenge – Creating Pretty Cards!!

 

To help you recreate the sketch each month, we’ve also provided a free Sketch Mini Tutorial! This mini tutorial has information about how the inspiration card (using the sketch) was created, supplies used, and basic measurements!!

 

A couple guidelines before we get started and you submit your creations to our challenge!

 

Please Do!:

  • Share cards related to each month’s card challenge using Stampin’ Up! supplies only.
  • Post the card to your blog or other online forum (e.g. Splitcoaststampers).
  • When posting the card to your blog or other online forum consider using as a keyword CPCX, with the X representing the card challenge number. E.g. For this our 67th challenge it would be CPC67.
  • Use the link tool below to link to your card (not just your blog, please).
  • If posting to your blog, please link back to Craft Project Central.
  • Leave comments for those that share their card creations! Thank you!

 

Please Don’t!:

  • Try to advertise with your creations.
  • Use non-Stampin’ Up! supplies, stamp sets, ribbon, accessories, etc. on your creations.

We reserve the right to remove submissions that don’t meet the above criteria, but we don’t want to have to do that, so please do the do’s!

 

For every ten cards submitted, we’ll pick one winner of a free month subscription here on Craft Project Central! The winner(s) will get to select the month of their choice! So if we have 15 submissions this month we’ll randomly pick one winner from all submissions*. If we have 40 submissions we’ll randomly pick four winners from all submissions*, and so on! We really want to give away some free subscriptions, so please do join our challenge!!

 

*If our project designers submit a card for your inspiration this month, they won’t be in the winner random-selection pool, but their cards will count towards the “for every 10 cards submitted winner total”.

 

 

Here is our next Creating Pretty Cards – Card Challenge #67!!

Falling in Love with Card Candy!

Whether you need a gift for a crafty friend, want to help a new crafter get started with card making, or need to make a quick card yourself, this tote full of card candy is the answer. Using the Falling in Love suite from the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog, you’ll create several sheets of sentiments and embellishments that can easily be added to a card base to create a beautiful card in minutes. The adorable purse is perfect to hold the card candy and can be used as a gift bag later. An added bonus is a greeting card using some of the candy so the recipient can see how simple it is to create a card. This would make a lovely hostess gift or a fun class or stamp camp.

 

 

 

This pretty project comes to you designed by Buffy!
