CARDS Blog Challenge: Dec. 2012

05 Dec

I’m so thrilled to introduce a new blog challenge that we’ll be hosting here every month: the CARDS Blog Challenge!

On the first Wednesday of each month, I’ll be posting something inspiring from an issue of CARDS Magazine. It might be a sketch from the Inspiring Sketches article, a color palette from the Style Challenge article or even just a fabulous card that I want you to pull inspiration from.

You’ll have two weeks to send in images of your card(s). Our favorites will be featured on this blog and our top pick will win a fabulous prize! Feel free to post your card on your blogs and websites! We’d love for you to spread the word about this challenge!

We hope you’ll get involved with this fun challenge, and can’t wait to see what you create!

 

 

This month’s challenge is taken from our Inspiring Sketches article. We want you to use this sketch as inspiration to make your own card. Note that the flowers don’t need to be flowers, the scallops don’t need to be scallops, etc. The card should just be based on the sketch and you add in your own creativity!

Submit an image of your card to hannah@northridgepublishing.com by December 17th. (Our favorite cards will be featured and the winner will be announced on December 19th.)

The lucky winner of this challenge will be receiving an amazing and innovative stamping system by Inkadinkado called Stamping Gear! The Stamping Gear makes amazing symmetrical patterns by mounting stamps on their clear paddle and then stamping around circle or oval cogs and wheels! It is so fun and creates to most beautiful stamped patterns!

The winner will receive: Stamping Gear Deluxe Kit, Typographic Cling Stamps, Elegant Suit Cling Stamps, and the Fossil Leaves Cling Stamps.

 


Good luck to you all!
