Hello and welcome to our August Challenge at CropStop! We sure enjoyed all the FABULOUS cards and projects you linked in our last challenge, and now we’re all set for another FUN challenge. We can hardly wait to see all the fabulous cards and projects you’ll be making and sharing with us this month. For those of you who played along in last month’s challenge, thank you SO much! And for those of you who are new to CropStop Challenges, we warmly welcome you. Here’s a SUPER FUN card that I created to hopefully inspire you all into playing along in this month’s Anything Goes Challenge:
This adorable card was creating using some patterned papers, and an awesome die-cut and stamp set from My Favorite Things. I stamped the Pure Innocence Peanut Butter & Jelly Stamp onto vellum with brown ink and used brown embossing powder. Then, I die-cut the image with the coordinating My Favorite Things Peanut Butter & Jelly Die-Cut and colored it with my colored markers. I also inked the edges of my card with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spun Sugar, and stamped my sentiment in Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Black Soot.
I placed the image on a cute little journalling card, added a sticker underneath, a bow tied with Blueberry Baker’s Twine, and added some sweet little decorative flowers. CropStop has so many adorable stamp sets and coordinating dies, and you’re sure to find something you will LOVE.
Here’s how our challenges work:
- Create any new project(s) using any product sold at CropStop Store. It’s okay if you didn’t buy it from us – just have a look in the store and see if we have what you’re using (we probably do). If it’s a company we carry, then it’s fine if we don’t necessarily have the particular color or style you use. Please, no back-linking old projects. Limit five (5) entries per month/challenge. You’re welcome to share ANY project with us.
- Link your project here in our linkup using this handy dandy linky tool below. Link back to this post, and mention the CropStop Challenge in your post.
- We’ll choose one random winner who will receive a prize pack of CropStop goodies! The winner will be announced on the second Wednesday in September when our new challenge begins.
AND NOW….Our lucky winner from July’s challenge chosen by random.org is:
Entry #18 – Christine Miller – Isn’t her card gorgeous! Thanks for showing CropStop’s products so beautifully, Christine.
Winners: Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org within seven (7) days to claim your prizes by giving us your physical mailing address, and we will get your prize out to you right away. In fairness to everyone, there are no exceptions to this rule.
OK……now it’s your turn. We look forward to seeing all your great entries this month. Thanks so much for linking up with us, and best of luck to everyone in the random draw. We really want you to help us spread the word that CropStop is a great place to play along!
Have fun creating, and good luck!
