September CAS Card Challenge

Hey there, STAMPlorations friends! Thank you to all who played in last month's challenge and created beautiful CAS cards! We'll announce the winner and top picks on September 6 9.

I also want to thank those who responded to my Guest Designer Call. I received 30+ (closer to 40) applications and it was not easy to narrow down the list. Stay tuned because on September 20, I'll introduce 3 talented cardmakers who'll make up our first batch of guest designers for the CAS Card Challenge.

Oh and one more thing: Don't forget to join in on some coloring fun with the Color Blooms blog hop and linky party. Details are here :o)

Now let's get the September Challenge started! Our CAS Card Challenge is pretty simple: it's straightforward anything CAS goes with the optional color twist. Create a clean and simple card with or without the color we've picked to include. And for August, pink is the optional color twist. (You can use other colors with pink.)

When linking up, please follow these simple rules: (complete list of rules is here)
  • Link up to 3 entries and link up to as many other challenges as you want.
  • Non-STAMPlorations products are OK (although please don't link up a project you've created for the sole purpose of promoting another company; those projects will be deleted or will not be considered in the running for winner or top pick.)
  • To qualify for our prizes, you must display the challenge graphic in your blog post. (This is not required if you're linking from online galleries like Splitcoast, Flickr, or Pinterest.)
  • Link back to this challenge post (not just our main blog) to encourage others to play too.

Check out the gorgeous cards the STAMPlorations girls made to inspire.

So how about you show us your CAS cards with or without the color twist? The linky is open until the end of the month and you can enter up to 3 cards with or without the color twist. You're not required to use STAMPlorations products (although we're always thrilled to see projects made with them). For the full challenge rules, click here. The CAS girls will be back in two weeks to share more CAS cards for this month's challenge.



Spammers have been in full force lately so I had to turn comment moderation on. We love hearing from fellow crafters (not spammers), so your comment will be approved as soon as possible. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
