Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C501

Hi Crazy Fans!

Before we get onto today's challenges, we have some changes to announce to our Design Team. Karen Aicken has decided to step down from the team, we are sad to see her go as we have enjoyed seeing her creations of the past few years.

Our Guest Designer for the month is Kristine Reynolds from Stamping and Scrapping in California. We always enjoy having Kristine playing along with us when she can and we look forward to seeing her wonderful creations this month.

Our challenges this month are brought to us by Frances. 

This week it’s all about Color Blocking …. Incorporate this technique onto your card using cardstock.
Here are a few tutorials relating to Color Blocking which may be of interest to you:

Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C499

Hi, Crazy Fans,

It's Frances here again today to bring you another challenge.

Cut Up Stamping - This isn't a new technique and I have done it many times in the past in various ways. However Jennifer McGuire shared this fun technique a few months ago, so I bought it would be fun to revisit this technique. So for our challenge this week, create a card using the Cut-Up Stamping Technique. 

You can see Jennifer McGuire's tutorial on this technique here.

Now let's take a look at our Design Teams creations this week ......
