Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C443



Welcome back to the Crazy 4 Challenge blog! Rebecca Ednie here again and I'd like to say 'Thanks!' to everyone who played along last week! So many great takes on 'windows'.

This week, the team and I are making SHAPED CARDS. Any shape other than a plain circle, rectangle or square. So many fun options! Really any shape can become a card. Just cut the shape and add a rectangle or circle (or whatever) shaped card base behind it! If it doesn't fit perfectly, just trim the card base to match!

Don't forget about my giveaway for anyone participating this month! Read more about it HERE.

The lovely Teresa Kline is our guest for the month. Her card is gorgeous! Please leave her a comment here or on her blog to show her some love!

Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C442

Hello to all of our fans and faithful Crazy 4 Challenges followers. It's our first challenge of July and I, Rebecca Ednie, am your hostess for this month. I really love coming up with some fun new ideas for challenges so I hope you all love them and find some time to play along.

This week we are going to play with WINDOWS. You can use a window in any form. You can cut a hole in the front of your card to peep into the inside, make a shaker element, use a stamp or die of a window, a building or vehicle with a window, use a frame to set off your focal point, make a clear card or use acetate or vellum in another way. Fun right? And so many possibilities!

Ooh and I've got a bonus for participants this month. Just make a card or other project for my challenges, link them here then leave a comment on my blog for any or all of my posts this month to be entered to win a prize. A custom pair of earrings made by me! I'll also add in some fun paper crafting goodies.

We have an awesome new Guest Designer this month too! Teresa Kline is joining us for all of our challenges so I hope you will leave her some nice comments. She's a brilliant designer who always thinks outside the box with her gorgeous creations! You will love her cards!

Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C441

Hi Crazy Fans,

It's Frances here with you again today bringing you one last challenge for June. 

Before we get into our challenge for this week, I would like to thanks Karen Nofziger who was our Guest Designer for the month. I hope you enjoyed her creations as much as I did. 


I love the look of inlaid die cutting using alphabet or word dies over a design on a card which is becoming popularly known as the Eclipse Technique

You will find lots of inspiration on Pinterest using this technique here.

If you decide to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C441. Don't forget to come back here and link it on Inlinkz so that everyone else can see it too.


Now let's see what the Crazies have come up with this week!

Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C440

Hi Crazy Fans! 

Welcome to another challenge here on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.

Our challenge this week is .....
Ombre 
Definition - a french word meaning "shaded". Ombre is the gradual blending of one color hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark.

The ombre technique has become very popular in stamping over the past few years. Use this technique in some way when creating your card this week.

Here are a few links to YouTube videos for inspiration:
Ombre Stamping- Jennifer McGuire 
Easy Ombre Backgrounds– Jennifer McGuire
Ombre Background Stamping– Yana Smakula


If you decide to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C440. Don't forget to come back here and link it on Inlinkz so that everyone else can see it too.
