Challenge #140

Wow! We are having some HOT summer all of a sudden. It had been pretty cool and wet, that sure changed in a hurry. Have you been travelling this summer? Beaching? Catching up with friends and family?  We hope you’re enjoying the season and finding some spare moments to get some creating in too.

Featured Artist – 139!

I really loved this last sketch! And I really loved what all of you did with it! Although the possibilities were endless, you all really brought it on this time and caused some major agonizing at our end as we had to pick winners!

Our top pick this week was:

AYSI TopPick

Kathy Schweinfurth

Kathy showed us what you can do with pencil crayons with her vibrant floral pattern on kraft paper and the embossed white behind it shows it off to the best advantage! Awesome!

This week our Featured Artist is

AYSISnaps

Sue T.

 

The Design Team really liked the clean and simple design with the ombre leaves and the combination of stamped and die cut sentiments. The green, white and black palette was crisp, respectful and yet hopeful. Sympathy cards are always a struggle to make, but Sue did a wonderful job of this one!

Congratulations to both Sue and Kathy!

Join us tomorrow for a brand new challenge!

Featured Artist – 138!

As a Canadian, I felt very patriotic while checking on all the entries over the last two weeks! Red and white makes beautiful cards as well as flags! We had everything from cupcakes to ladybugs, all done up in our two colour combo! Thanks for joining us!

Our top pick this week was:

AYSI TopPick

Jen Mitchell

Look at that gorgeous Poinsettia!! The card itself is very clean and simple, but the flower itself has gorgeous detail! We loved the little ‘joy’ on top of the flower!

This week our Featured Artist is

AYSISnaps

Nora Noll

 

The Design Team loved the beautiful iris-like background for Nora’s shiny red butterfly die cut and the vellum leaves! And the sentiment looks so good embossed on the red banner! This was Nora’s first time playing with us and we’re really glad she did!

Congratulations to both Nora and Jen!

Join us tomorrow for a brand new challenge!

Challenge #138

In celebration of our friendliness, beavers, the maple leaf, apologies, Canadian bacon, hockey, maple syrup, and all sentences that end with “eh?” we are celebrating Canada Day today (July first). We recognize that this is an international challenge and many play with us from around the world, thus our theme challenge reflects the national flag and celebrated colours of Canada – Red and White.  We hope you celebrate with us today and during the next couple weeks by playing along :)

Featured Artist – 137!

We really found out the colour of your stripes these past two weeks. Wonderful entries, and, as usual, so difficult to pick winners. Thanks for continuing to play along with us!

Our top pick this week was:

AYSI TopPick

Cindy Major

Vertical Greetings_Sweet Stack_Cindy Major

This was a perfect project on which to use vertical sentiments! We loved the variety of patterns and textures that Cindy used on the vertical banners, and check out those gorgeous bows!

This week our Featured Artist is

AYSISnaps

LeAnne Pugliese

 

 

LeAnne’s crisp navy and white creation hit the right chord with the design team. We loved her flower, and the pattern variety to her stripes, but especially the attention to detail such as the little scallops at the ends of her banners! Beautiful!

Congratulations to both LeAnne and Cindy!

Challenge #137

School’s out forever. School’s been blown to pieces. No more pencils. No more books, yea. No more teachers dirty looks. It is the time when they release the small people back into the world. Are your kids out of school yet? We have another week left here. Better get crafting while you still have time!  Ha!  Really just so darn excited to see what you all do with this unique sketch challenge.

Featured Artist – 136!

Our entries this week were as varied as…well, as varied as there are different kinds of dads! I’m sure you can find a design among them that would please your dad! As good as all of them were, two caught our eye this week:

Our top pick this week was:

AYSI TopPick

Ashwini

Happy Father's Day

Ashwini’s card was an elegant and skillful design in shades of navy and white. We were so impressed with the stamping and colouring techniques used on this effective project.

This week our Featured Artist is

AYSISnaps

Tenia Nelson

 

Tenia’s wise old owl was a hit with the Design Team. We also loved the watercolouring effect, the washi tape overlaid with stitches and her choice of design paper! A perfect design if your dad is famous for his wisdom!

Congratulations to both Tenia and Ashwini!

Challenge #136

Its the month to celebrate Dads. Dads really do play such a unique role in families and it’s really nice to celebrate all they do, did, and continue to do. Do you have Dads in your world right now?  Your own Dad? Or a Dad of your child/children? What about a Dad that you know who does everything he knows how to for his kids?  Here’s your chance to give him a nudge and tell him how great he is.

Featured Artist – 135!

It was so exciting to see all those entries this time around! I think that having two weeks to do the challenge gives everyone more opportunity to participate! And wow, was it ever hard to choose two winners this week, they were all so good! Seriously!

Our top pick this week was:

AYSI TopPick

LeAnne Pugliese

LeAnne’s card made us all smile! She has used colour so effectively, with her flower and creating texture in the background. The Design Team all loved the shiny gold die cut reminding everyone to Smile! A very lovely design!

dj’s card is simple but effective. The Design Team loved the black, white and red palette and the great choices of paper and washi tape. The little pop of red on the anchor is the perfect touch!

Congratulations to both dj and LeAnne!
