PSC#107 Clean & Simple

Challenge Badge

Welcome to the Poppystamps Challenge! We're so happy you've stopped by, and we sure hope you'll join us! On the first of the month, we announce a new Poppystamps Challenge with a central theme. The design team will provide samples for inspiration, and you can play along through the end of the month for your chance to win.

The winner of our blog badge for the Poppystamps Challenge Challenge #106 Rainbows is Stephanie Severin


The lucky winner of the draw (chosen by random number generator) for the monthly prize is Becca Yahrling!

Please contact me (Jeanne) at [email protected] to claim your prize.

Want to play? 

The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up here. The design we love best will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize. You don't have to have a blog to play.  You can link to any online gallery. In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Poppystamps image. We ask that you link a maximum of  3 entries to each challenge. You are welcome to link your design to other challenges. Grab our badge to post on your blog post or sidebar!


PSC#107 Clean & Simple - This month we want you to try Clean and Simple design.  This could mean stamped one layer  designs, cards that have lots of white background (but don't have to be), projects with a defined focal point that are uncluttered, designs with one or no layer, or even cards that are easy to mass produce.   Just keep it simple!  Projects can be for any occasion, and you're not limited to making cards.  We welcome home décor, page layouts, tags and everything in between!  It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps die on your project!  You must use a Poppystamps product to be eligible to win! 

Need a little inspiration?  Here are some samples from our design team.  Want a closer look?   No worries.. we'll be featuring these projects on Wednesdays throughout the month, so you can see how each project was created.

Meet our August guest, Karen Downs who was selected by design team member Janet Katz.  I noticed Karen's Instagram page a few months ago and was super impressed with her knack for combining color and die cuts with clean and simple design. Add to this her expertise in using solid color cardstock and vellum

 I have been a crafter in some form since childhood and making cards as long as I can remember. I love to make Clean and Simple cards and definitely love to make rainbow cards or at least incorporate rainbows when I can. They make me happy!

Thanks so much for featuring my card.

Hi Jeanne, Congratulations to the lucky Winners.
Fantastic samples shown here, lots of inspiration.
I am not a CAS crafter (I'm the opposite haha), but I am going to be doing CAS on my batch-making Christmas cards this year.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
