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.”
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!
