Challenge #280 - Christmas in July

Team mate LeAnne came up with a unique Fill in the Blank challenge this week. It's the last week in July but most crafters have their sights turning toward Christmas crafting starting about now. We want to know what kind of Christmas stamping you like to do most in the summer? Cards? Home décor? Gifts? Craft Fair Novelties? Ornaments? Let us know by filling in the blank in the Challenge Banner.

For a Fill in the Blank Challenge, you complete the sentence by filling in the blank, then you make your project based on the words you used to fill in the blank. How would you fill in this blank? Now, take on the challenge of making something amazing with it!

 And make sure to tell us, in your blog post, how you Filled in the Blank!

Winners of Challenge #279 - Sunset Symphony

Here are our winners:

Our Top Pick is: Jolanda Johnstone

Jolanda not only used our colours in a unique way, but she went out of her way to add a lot of interesting texture to her project as well. Check out the tire tread marks and the tires themselves to see what I mean. Then there's the playful background and the pennants! When you add in the appropriate lovely sentiment, the whole creation was one of the favourites of the Design Team!

Our Featured Artist is: Mary Deatherage

As Featured Artist this week, Mary will also be invited to be our next Guest Designer! We loved that she used ink blending to turn the Challenge colours into a tropical sunset, with the images used in silhouette overtop. And we loved how the circular frame was created, stamped on Basic White, then die cut so some of the images were outside the margin, mounting the inside circle flat and popping the outside panel up on dimensionals. What a great way to create focus! Mary's ink blending with our colours is impeccable and use of the lighter colours in the card layers works wonders! 

Congratulations, Mary, you will be our next Guest Designer for our Recipe Challenge in 2 weeks time. We will be in touch!

Challenge #279 - Sunset Symphony

I remember a camping trip on the west coast of Vancouver Island on a beautiful Pacific shore called Long Beach. Each night, there were such spectacular sunsets that people just came out and stood silently on the beach while the sun set, then went back to their activities, speaking in hushed tones. It was like being in a great cathedral or listening to a soaring symphony. It stirred you and all your senses. It was the first thing I thought of when I saw the inspiration photo for this colour palette, so I've named this colour challenge Sunset Symphony!

Each time we have a colour challenge, the Featured Artist will have a chance to become a Guest Designer for our next Recipe Challenge 4 weeks from now. So enter with that in mind! We're so excited to work with you for a challenge!!

Remember, if you don't have the Stampin' Up! colours, use the colours you have that are the closest. Your project should use all these colours only and 1 neutral. (Neutrals include black, white, vanilla or Crumb Cake.)
