Card Challenges You’ll Enjoy

June 1, 2017

Hey, glad you’re joining me today.  Sometimes I feel stuck in a rut, making the same card over and over.  Or I have a new supplies I’m not sure how to use.  If you ever need fresh inspiration, card challenges are wonderful.  Bonus:  a chance to win awesome prizes and/or bragging rights!  And many of these winners are chosen at random, so anyone, regardless of experience or talent, has a chance to win.

 

Some of the challenges use a card sketch, like the one on the left, for inspiration.  Other choose a picture, or a theme, like “sports.”

Simon Says Stamp – This stamp company has 2 challenges a week, with a new theme each Monday and Wednesday.

A Blog Named Hero – This site features a new theme every month, along with a spotlight on a up-and-coming new company.  I love this, because it’s always fun to find out about new products!

My Favorite Things – This site for card challenges is part of the stamp company My Favorite Things.  They have a new sketch challenge every week, and a new color challenge twice a month.

Freshly Made Sketches – This site introduces a new sketch every Monday.

CASology – This site has a new theme each week, and the challenge is to create a clean and simple card.

Fusion – This website has a new challenge every week twice a month.  They give you a picture and a card sketch, and encourage you to use either, or both, to create your card.

There are far more challenges than I could feature here, so I just narrowed it down to a few that I’ve done in the past.  Have you ever taken part in a card challenge?  Let me know in the comments if you have, or would like to.  Thanks for stopping by!

P.S.  If your missing my card tutorials, I’m working hard on a few things to show you next week.  See you again soon!
