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#92 Floral Fantasy - April Showers bring May Flowers and after a long winter we're all anxious to see sunny skies and watch the flowers grow! Crafting is a sweet escape, so even when we can't have the real thing, we can make our own flower garden indoors on paper. So show us your paper garden with flowers aplenty and of all varieties and hues of color! The challenge is not limited to cards - we'd love to see your page layouts, home decor, tags, and mixed media. It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project!
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 April Guest - Kathy Pisupati who was selected by Janet after discovering her amazing cardmaking challenge on Instagram. Kathy has a truly gifted way with combining good composition, great die cuts and wonderful colors to make beautiful cards. She always impresses with her makes!
Blog: Expressive Paper
As a graduate with a fine arts degree, I never really found a career that could fill my creative needs. I spent most of my time raising a family and in the travel industry as well education administration. Card making fulfills this need. While in college I could never decide what my “medium” was because I loved them all. Card making provides the opportunity to use multiple mediums. My cards are primarily created and given to organizations that share them with someone in need of a smile.
