Hello, crafty friends! I hope you’re all ready for another great challenge here at CropStop because we sure are excited to see all the fabulous cards and projects you make and share with us this month. For those of you who played along last month, thank you SO much! And for those of you who are new to CropStop Challenges, we warmly welcome you. Here’s a little inspiration for the challenge:
This card was created using a basic black card stock that I inked in white. I added half of a small white doily, some chalk/ink sentiment tags (that I also inked), a miniature white Safety Pin, a vintage gem button, and yet with ALL that – I just knew that something was still missing. It was – A BOW! It needed the perfect, shabby/chic, vintage bow to complete this card; and I was able to create the PERFECT bow for this sweet chalkboard card by simply using one of CropStop’s FABULOUS products – the Prima Color Bloom Spray. I used it to create a lovely chalkboard appearing seam binding that perfectly matches all those soft, sweet shabby/vintage chalkboard projects. Chalkboard projects are so on trend right now, and crinkled seam binding is such a soft, vintage, lovely touch to all those chalkboard projects. By using a CropStop favorite – the Vintage Coal Prima Color Blooms Spray, anyone can create a seam binding that will match perfectly on ALL those fabulous chalkboard crafts. If you missed this simple tutorial, please click here for the Seam Binding Tutorial to learn how to easily make the perfect color seam binding for every project. There are so many AWESOME colors of this spray to help you make the perfect colored seam binding for your next project. I really hope this has inspired YOU to create something fun to share with us this month. Now…….let’s get to the challenge rules.
Here’s how the challenge works:
- Create any new project using 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 three (3) entries per month/challenge.
- 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 winner who will receive a prize pack of CropStop goodies! The winner will be announced on the second Wednesday in August, when our new challenge begins.
Please share the linky party with your friends and share the linky party love. You’re also invited to grab our challenge badge for your blog’s sidebar. We hope that next time you need some great new supplies, you will think of CropStop. We’re here to help!
The winner of our last challenge is Entry #17 – Darlene Pavlick . We just love this great card she created:
OK……now it’s your turn. We look forward to seeing all your great entries. Thanks so much for linking up with us, and best of luck to everyone in the random draw.
