Card Layout Challenge #301

Two years ago, I posted the following challenge referring to the holidays.  I am repeating this challenge again this year, as I will in future years around this time, should we continue with weekly challenges. 

This week we prepare for the holidays.  Many members send oriental themed cards to friends during this time period.  Your challenge this week is to create a holiday inspired oriental card.  The card does not have to say Merry Christmas on it. The focus is on what this time of year means to you, your wishes to others, etc.

At this time, I am not looking for Chinese New Year’s cards at this time (that will be a later challenge).  

****Remember, your card design must be oriental in nature. There must be at least one stamped item on your card.

I invite you to create a card using this week’s challenge. Upload it to your personal photo album.  This can be an OSA gallery album, an OSA Yahoo! Photo album, Flickr, PictureTrail, etc.  Then post a link to your artwork HERE in the comments section when you have completed our challenge.  Or, you can also post a link to your artwork on OSA. Come back on Sunday to see who has taken the challenge this week!

Do you want your design featured?  Just email me (Sonia E.) your original design and you will be featured in an upcoming challenge this year!

Card Layout Challenge #300

Wow!  This is our 300th Card Layout Challenge!!  I have been posting new challenges every week since January 1, 2009!!  We are finishing our SIXTH year of challenges.  My, where has the time gone!  As an extra celebration this week, in addition to the weekly winner receiving a gift, I will be sending gifts to ALL participants….How is that for a celebration?  The envelopes are ready, we just need to have participants!  Oh, well, I also have to take them to the post office, which takes time. ; D

Since this week the United States celebrates Thanksgiving this Thursday, many of us probably don’t have time to do a complicated card.  Therefore, this week is an easy one layered card.  The inspiration card layout can be found on the blog called Inkybitz.  The card can be found here.

****Remember, your card design must be oriental in nature. There must be at least one stamped item on your card.

For this week’s challenge, you will need an embossing machine and ribbon.  Take a look at the card for this week’s inspiration here.  It is found on the blog called Our Little Inspirationsby Carol Longacre.  Please DO NOT change the orientation of the card.  Your card should be in portrait orientation as shown.  Include the embossing on the layer strip and use ribbon on the right.

This week’s challenge layout was sent a while ago by our list mom, Annette W.  Annette suggest that the center piece could be raised with foam dots or with paper scraps layered to lift the central image up off the card front.

Card Layout Challenge #297

Here is another opportunity for you to use up your thin designer paper scraps.  This week’s challenge was suggested by Anne C., our Vendor Liaison!  The cards are featured on Quietfire Creations blog.  The guest artist was Judi Kauffman at the beginning of October.  She created a collage card made from scraps.  Take a look here for various card examples using torn or cut scraps.  Use thin papers glued in a collage form.  Add glitter, paint, peel-offs, stamps, etc to get that collage look.
