I've been having so much fun playing some of the many challenges that are out there, so in a moment of insanity, I decided I should try and host my own challenge. Once I'd made the decision, I had to figure out what kind of challenge. There's lots of fabulous challenges out there, and I wanted to do something somewhat unique. (I hope!) So here it is, the very first edition of my SHAPE UP challenge - to make shaped cards!
Part of the inspiration for this comes from the fact that I am guilty, guilty, guilty of always making the same size card. While the package of 50 cards and envies from WalMart is a great deal, always working in the same medium can be stagnating, and I needed a change. I had so much fun making this rocket ship card, I want to make more!
Supplies used: cardstock - CTMH, eyelets - my stash, stamps - All Decked out and Playful flourishes, both CTMH, marker. The design is mine, adapted from a stamp from the Reach for the stars stamp set. I also went to the Colour throwdown for some colour inspiration and piled on some eyelets for the challenge at Practical Scrappers.
This week's challenge is CELESTIAL OBJECTS. Stars, planets, ships, whatever you can think of from up in the sky. I want to see your creatively shaped cards. Just link up with Mr.Linky or leave your link in the comments section. Entries are due by next friday the 14th.
Please pass the work around about my new challenge, and of course, I love to hear from you! Oh, and don't forget to check out my DT post for details!
(ps, ignore the friday feast part of Mr.Linky, I need to figure a few more things out still)
I will be away on vacation starting first thing in the morning, so i won't be posting this week. i will be checking in though, and I can't wait to see your shaped cards!
