Hello and welcome to today's MDC Challenge! This week we're continuing on with two favorite themes we've introduced recently. First of all, last week we introduced a Valentine's ATC challenge - and the design team had extra fun doing our own ATC exchange! We had so much fun we decided to extend our challenge! We DO have one winner so far - one of our favorite players, Carla! Here's Carla's Valentine ATC:
Carla - please pm me your address again so we can send you one of these awesome ATC prize boxes put together by Cathy:
Each box contains an assortment of MDC papers cut to size, a scrap bag to add color and decorative trims to your cards, a sampling of May Arts ribbon and buttons from Basic Grey's sugared collection, some of Cathy's handmade flowers and embellishments, and two stamps from the Daisy Bucket and Imaginisce lines.
Carla wins the first one, which also includes some handmade and signed ATC's from Cathy!! So, that still leaves another prize package left and the obvious solution is to extend our challenge another week! There will be a little change - since it is now well past Valentine's day, your ATC can be any theme... BUT, it can't be a co-challenge with our second challenge (which will be posted below...) Cathy gave us an excellent tutorial last week so if you need a little help please visit her blog for more information. The main thing to remember is that your card needs to be 2.5" x 3.5". Please leave a comment on this post with a link to your picture to be considered for this follow-up challenge!
So, that leads us to our second challenge this week... we loved the beautiful examples our scrapbook team put together for the lace cardstock challenge on Monday, and we thought it would be fun to carry it over to the card makers! So, the second challenge for today is to use lace cardstock in a creative way on your card! Check out these awesome samples from our design team:
Dawn Schulte - Dawn's Special Creations
Dawn used patterned paper from Melissa Frances, lace cardstock from sei, and stamped images from Serendipity.
Katheryn Heflin - My Children, My World
Katheryn used patterned paper from Imaginisce, stamped images from Daisy Bucket, and lace cardstock from sei.
Leah Cornelius - Paper Blossoms
Leah used papers from Daisy Bucket and Bo Bunny, stamped images from Daisy Bucket and Scenic Route, bling from Kaiser, and lace cardstock from sei.
Maria Levine - Ria Creations
Giovana Smith - A Place to Praise and Craft
Giovana used patterned paper from Daisy Bucket, bling from Kaiser, and a stamped image from Serendipity.
So we can't wait to see your creative ideas for using lace cardstock! Leave us a comment with a link to your blog post or picture and you could win a piece of this lace cardstock from sei. Thanks again and happy creating!
