Challenge #135

Here we are headed into the May long weekend (in Canada and the States anyways). A sure sign that summer is practically around the corner. Do you feel like it was just Christmas?  Is it just me that seems like time is on hyperdrive?  Hopefully you’re able to enjoy your long weekend and find some time to do some creating, especially with this fun sketch. Just a reminder that we are moving to a two week challenge, so you have lots of time to join us :)

Featured Artist – 134!

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

Look at that awesome DIY design paper that LeAnne created with the All About Everything stamp set! We loved the colours she chose and that yummy bow at the bottom!

This week our Featured Artist is

AYSISnaps

Anni

 

I’m not certain, but I think that this might be a spinner card! At any rate, the Design Team fell in love with that adorable coffee monster, and the way Anni so skillfully coloured it in. The curved corners at the top, the crisp stitched circles and the beautiful colours all combined to make this our choice for Featured Artist.

Congratulations to both Anni and LeAnne!

Join us tomorrow for a brand new challenge!

Challenge #134

Change can be hard. Change can also be good. Change can also be used to buy new crafting goodies.

The moral of the story though, is that change happens and we must be adaptable and flexible to the changes that come our way.  Here at AYSI, we are going through a change.  We will be moving from a weekly challenge to a bi-weekly challenge.  The good news is that gives all our players more time to play along with us.  We hope that you continue to enjoy the challenges that we create and be inspired by the inspiration from our designers.

Featured Artist – 133!

Thanks for all your entries this week! I’m still loving that soft colour palette and it was lovely to see all the different themes you chose.

Our top pick this week was:

AYSI TopPick

Chrissie Stokes

We were happy to see that Chrissie used not only the colours from the challenge but also the inspiration picture to guide her design. Her images are beautifully coloured and we loved the background texture!

This week our Featured Artist is

AYSISnaps

LeAnne Pugliese

 

Again, colour and texture play a huge role in this effective design by LeAnne. The Design Team really loved the stamped texture on the blue banner and the way the embossing folder was used to make the white flag on her card. The use of horizontal and vertical elements really complimented each other in creating this great masculine design!

Congratulations to both LeAnne and Chrissie!

Challenge #133

UPDATE: Please accept our sincerest apologies regarding the technical difficulties that were not allowing you, our wonderful players to submit your creations. Because of the “challenging” nature of the difficulties of this past weekend, we have extended the time for you to enjoy playing with our sweet colour challenge.  Please feel free to play and add your projects until Wednesday May 4th.

These soft colours are just right for a nursery, but they will be amazing in many different designs as well! We can hardly wait to see what you do with them.

Featured Artist – 132!

I don’t know what it’s like where you live, but we’re having really warm, summery weather around here! Totally uncharacteristic of our part of the world at this time of year. So the beach theme of this sketch challenge was certainly appropriate for this week. We enjoyed looking at all your entries, but funnily enough, neither of the two top picks were remotely beachy!

Our top pick this week was:

AYSI TopPick

Tenia Nelson

We loved the splashy colours, the cute sentiment and images, all contrasting with the newspaper print at the top! Thanks for such a fun card, Tenia!

This week our Featured Artist is

AYSISnaps

Teresa Kline

 

Teresa has gone all out with those water-coloured hearts and lovely colours. The Design Team were impressed with the water-colour technique and the cute stitched hearts.

Congratulations to both Teresa and Tenia!

Featured Artist – 131!

These assortment challenges are a little like “Chopped”! You have an assortment of elements, and you have to combine them, along with the basic ingredients, to come up with a stamping masterpiece! Thanks for the masterpieces you all posted in our gallery this week!

Our top pick this week was:

AYSI TopPick

Tenia Nelson

The Design Team were sold on this whimsical unicorn card with the great sentiment that confirms what we knew all along: you are all, indeed, unicorns! The awesome, eclectic elements of this design are so playfully attractive!

This week our Featured Artist is

AYSISnaps

Stasia Sloma

 

We loved the contrast between the clean look of the black and white elements and the little blush of light blue in the middle with the sprinkling  of sequins and splatters! The baker’s twine and button over the washi tape added a complete touch. Well designed, Stasia! Congratulations!

Join us tomorrow for a brand new challenge!

Challenge #131

Spring cleaning is on the brain these days. People I chat with are talking about shiny windows and decluttering their garage. It is the season for feeling light, new, and fresh.  The assortment challenge this week will get you thinking about how to declutter some of your stash and create a new shiny project!  For the assortment challenge try to use all of the elements in the challenge photo below.  Have fun!

With the ‘focus’ on film frames this week, it was interesting to see the variety of subject matter!  Our viewfinder found great design elements in every card but two in particular caught our attention:

The Design Team loved all of LeAnne’s amazing details, with the textured window frame, the lacy butterfly, the gorgeous colours and the spattering and washi tape as well as the coloured twine. LeAnne’s card really captured the essence of the challenge!
