CropStop Linky Party #15

Hello to everyone from 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 little inspirational card that I created for this month’s Anything Goes challenge:

CSAprilCardIsn’t this a fun card?  Well, if you like it…then you can recreate it by using a few supplies from CropStop.  I started with some patterned papers that I glued together with my Tombow Permanent Mono Adhesive and then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad in Spiced Marmalade.  Again, using my Tombow Permanent Mono Adhesive, I ran a length of ribbon across my card and tied a bow.  On top of that, I added a button that’s tied with Antique Gold Burlap String.  I also tied a length of the Ivory Burlap String into my bow (under the button).


Now……let’s talk about that ADORABLE owl, shall we?  He was cut out of cardstock using one of CropStop’s many sweet die-cuts.  This adorable die-cut is called Poppy the Owl, and it is made by Elizabeth Craft Designs.  This adorable die-cut made it super easy to make my card POP.  CropStop carries so many wonderful dies and accessories for your next card or project.  I hope you will check out everything they have to offer.

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.
  • 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 May, when our new challenge begins.

And now……Our Lucky Winner!  The winner of March’s Challenge, chosen by random draw is…….


Entry #30 – Greta H.    Wasn’t her card absolutely gorgeous?  She used Platinum Liquid Pearls on her card., and they beautiful.   CropStop carries several gorgeous colors of Liquid Pearls and they really make your project sparkle.

Winners:  Please email us at 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!
