Challenge #167 - It's All Perpendicular

Amanda has given us an amazing sketch to work with for Challenge #167 and we hope you love it as much as we do! I remember learning about perpendicular lines in geometry and how satisfying they were, forming right angles with each other. So enjoy these perpendicular formations and have fun with the angles and remember that you can use your creative license a bit here as long as we can see the original sketch in your work.



See how the Design Team saw it:






















Here are some guidelines for the challenge:

  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging   project that fits the challenge.
  • Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch and to substitute one   shape for another but we must still be able to see the sketch   in your finished submission.
  • Please include the challenge graphic and link back to the   challenge in your blog post. Turn off word verification so we   can send you lots of feedback. Make sure you link the post not the whole blog to the Linky. Use #AYSI167 when uploading to a public gallery.
  • If you’re unsure about ‘the rules’, check the details under the Challenge Guidelines tab.

Winners for Challenge #166 - Time to Sparkle

Apparently, you've all started the new year out with a resolution to spend more time sparkling in your craft rooms! What a shiny bunch of entries we received for the last challenge and OUR challenge was to choose the winners! There were so many good cards!! 

One Top Pick is: Ingen




We loved the clean look the colour blocks in the background gave to Ingen's card. And what could be more sparkly than the flashes from many cameras going off! It made us think of the glitz of the red carpet in Hollywood during awards season!


And our Featured Artist is: Joanne James

                                   

Joanne played the sparkle card to the max here with her beautiful New Year's shaker card. From the hand stamped and embossed background paper that fooled us into thinking it was DSP, to the gold flakes in the shaker numbers to the glimmer paper sentiment, the whole Design Team was star-struck! We loved this design!

Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! I hope you'll come back and check out our new sketch challenge tomorrow! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.

It's Time to Sparkle - Challenge #166

In a couple of days, it will be New Year's Eve! Are you someone who likes to dress to the nines and go out and party? Or do you like to get comfy, curl up on the couch and contemplate? Our theme challenge this week kind of favours the partiers and the glitzy glamour associated with New Year's Eve! So, if you're a quiet contemplator like me, think fireworks and fairy dust, or dew on a spiderweb! Anything that will...




The Design Team was at their sparkly best:























Here are some guidelines for the challenge:

  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging   project that fits the challenge.
  • Please include the challenge graphic and link back to the   challenge in your blog post. Turn off word verification so we   can send you lots of feedback. Make sure you link the post not the whole blog to the Linky. Use #AYSI166 when uploading to a public gallery.

Winners for Challenge #165 - A Matter of Perspective

We hope you had a marvelous Christmas and that you're looking forward to a new 2018 full of crafting time! Some of you spent some quality time in your craft rooms over the past two weeks and the proof is in the pudding, as they say, with some wonderful entries to our last sketch challenge. Here are our two winners:



One Top Pick is: Heather Heroldt




Heather used a hand-stamped neutral background to showcase the brightly coloured images of the hot chocolate mugs to perfection and we loved that sentiment! You can't help but smile and feel the warmth when you see Heather's card!



And our Featured Artist is: Stasia Sloma

                                     

Stasia took the sketch to the limit by turning it on its side and stretching out the card dimensions horizontally and it really works well! We loved the black, green and white palette and that embossed sentiment is so elegant. When you add the beautiful stamped stars and the baker's twine as a divider, you really have a winner!

Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! I hope you'll come back and check out our new theme challenge tomorrow! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.
