Creating Pretty Cards – Sketch Challenge #26!

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


And we had 10 submissions last month!!  Woo Hoo!!  Did you all look closely at all of the submissions?!?  They all used the sketch perfectly, and were all completely different from each other, and all were awesome!  I really loved each of the submissions and now have some more great cards to CASE!   Yay!  Since we had 10 great submissions, we had enough to give us the opportunity to give away a free subscription!  The winner of the free subscription is:


Tina Larson!! 

Congratulations Tina and thank you so very much for sharing your fabulous card with us!   Email me at and let me know which free month you would like!


In addition to the sketch we’ve also provided a 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 26th  challenge it would be CPC26.
  • 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 #26!!






Sketch 26 – Mini Tutorial


Both the card sketch and the great inspiration card were designed and made by one of our very talented designers, Amanda!  You all know and love Amanda for her great 3D projects every month!  This is her first card sketch, and we can’t wait to see what you all come up with.  So please join us! 



 We hope that you will be inspired to try your creativity, join our challenge, and share your creations today!!

Awesome sketch Amanda. Love your sample card too. Beautiful images and nice paper-piercing! I am going to try to use it before I go on my vacation. 🙂
