Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #6

Welcome to our 6th bi-weekly sketch challenge! Here’s the sketch for this challenge. It’s open to interpretation. Feel free to change the orientation of the sketch, use different shapes, add other elements to suit the type of paper craft you’re making, and so on — just make sure the sketch is recognizable in your submission(s). You can use stamps by other companies to create projects that you enter to our challenges, although if you have STAMPlorations stamps in your stash, we'd be tickled if you use them!

The sketch challenges are sponsored by our sister shop, All About Scrapping. The winner gets to pick 3 DIGITAL products from the shop — any combination of printable sheetsPhotoshop templates, and digital paper packs. The winner will also be invited to be a Guest Designer in next month's sketch challenge.

Participate in all 3 challenges we host this month and you'll be in the running to win this prize package courtesy of our sister shop, All About Scrapping.

Our guest designer is Juliawho was our sketch challenge #3 winner.

Guest Designer

"Hey fellow challenge enthusiasts! I'm Julia and I live just north of Boston, MA in the USA. My mother was an elementary school teacher and my father was a commercial artist so between the two, my sister and I did lots of artsy craftsy things starting at a very young age - and it continues into adulthood. I discovered card stamping about 8 years ago and it has become my passion - both on cards and other objects like boxes, bags and tags! I'm on a few design teams so those along with blog challenges keep me busy in the craft I love!  I work full time so I stamp late into the night! I am thrilled to have been asked to be guest designer this week for STAMPlorations!"

And here are projects that the STAMPlorations design team created based on the sketch. We hope our projects inspire you and we’re excited to see your interpretations!

Video tutorial of this one layer mixed media card is here.

  • Create a card, tag, mini album/scrapbook cover, layout, home decor item or any paper craft on ANY THEME using the sketch as your guide. Any style is welcome — CAS, shabby chic, vintage, grunge, and so on. Post your creation on your blog and submit it by 11:55 p.m. PST on Friday, February 28. Don’t have a blog? You can post a photo of your project on your Pinterest page, Flickr, or any public online gallery.
  • You must use stamps (rubber, cling, clear, digi — from any company) in your creation(s).
  • Copy the link of your blog entry where you have your project posted and enter it to the linky found at the end of this post. Remember to link directly to your blog post, not just your blog URL. (This will make it easy for us to find your submission and leave a comment. Please turn off word verification as well.)
  • Please include a text link back to this post in your blog post, as well as display the sketch, to encourage other paper crafters to participate.
  • You can submit up to 3 entries for this challenge.
  • You can submit your creation(s) to other challenges — as many as you want — except to other sketch challenges for obvious reasons!
  • Be a follower of our blog to qualify for the prize.
  • And lastly, have a great time creating your project! :-)
We’ll announce the winner and top picks on Sunday, March 2, here on the STAMPlorations™ blog and on the All About Scrapping page on Facebook. That’s it…we look forward to seeing what you create!
