Vicki's Challenge #40 It's a Diorama

Hello there, Friends! Just a little announcement! Today's challenge is our last challenge of the year but the site will remaim open and you'll still be able to try out any challenge that we posted this year. In the following weeks until Christmas, rather than posting new challenges, we'll be highlighting cards created by participants throughout the year.

To celebrate our last challenge, Vicki of Summerthyme Studio came up with something not only challenging but a fun project to start off the Holiday season! How exciting!!

This week's challenge is to create a Diorama Card! This is fun but challenging! Here's a link to a Tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers, authored by my great friend Diana Gibbs. These gorgeous cards fold down flat for mailing, but open up to a pretty scene!


If you want to play along, comment this post with a link to your blog or online gallery. Hope you have a wonderful week stamping and crafting! Have a wonderful Halloween!!

Sankari's Tag Challenge #39 - 10-19-09

Hi Everyone, Sankari here! As we get closer to Christmas, I thought it would be fun to do something a little different and create some tags for our gifts, presents, etc. :) So your challenge is to create at least three tags (they can be the same or different) :). If you would still like to create a card instead of a tag - you could always create a card with a tag in it :) Can't wait to see your tagged creations!!! I couldn't stop at three - they were so fun to make - here are my samples:

This project is fun and quick so we hope you play along with us!!! Please post a comment with a link to your blog or online gallery!! We'd love to see what you create!!

Check out all the gorgeous tags from the Design Team this week!!!
