Default September Design Challenge

"Can't Resist Fall!"


Ok ladies, break out your favorite stamps! I hope you are ready for a new month and a new challenge. September’s Design Challenge is to design a card, page or other project that features a resist stamping technique! You can use any coloring and resist mediums that you like, and there are soooo many options available! Distress or acrylic paints, VersaMark™ WaterMark, clear and opaque embossing powders, the humble crayon… Heck, why not Crystal Lacquer?!

I titled this challenge “Can’t Resist Fall!” because I honestly can’t resist diving right into autumn (and I obviously can’t resist a good pun either). But I encourage you to draw your inspiration from anywhere: harvest, holidays, birthdays… anything is fair game this month.

I have included a sketch for inspiration, but feel free to interpret loosely!



Some Basic Rules:

1. Everyone is welcome to participate in our challenge! These challenges are meant to be fun and inspire creativity. Measurements aren’t provided, because we want you to have some creative freedom! Feel free to create a card, a scrapbook page, or your other favorite paper craft project!

2. Please use primarily Hot Off The Press materials (such as Dazzles™, papers, stamps, templates, artful card kits, embossing folders, cutting dies and paper tole). Embellishments and accents, including glitter, flowers, ribbons, etc. aren’t required to be exclusively from Paper Wishes™.

3. You can enter more then once.

4. Please list your products for us. It lets us know what you like, and lets others know what you've used so they can make their own inspired version. We understand that we all have things in our craft stashes that may no longer have the original packaging. Please choose your products accordingly, and keep in mind that the list of products is required. We want to be fair to those that do list all of their products.

The monthly winner will receive a $15.00 gift certificate to Paper Wishes, and will have their project featured in our Paper Wishes Blog!

Post your project by:
Tuesday, September 30th, 2014


Projects entered after the date will not be eligible for the contest.

Winner will be announced:
Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Just to confirm - it doesn't necessarily have to be a Fall theme? Or it does?

Nancy - the way I understand it is that it can be anything you want it to be as long as you use the resist technique on it. If not, then we can be wrong together.

Enjoy your day,
Daria

You are correct - it does NOT have to be a Fall theme. It can be any type of card or project that you are in the mood for.

2. White card stock
3. Silver Sparkles holographic paper
4. Snow Flake cutting die
5. 4 Seasons Tree cutting die
6. Metalic Gelatos
7. Silver Jewel dazzles
8. Christmas Blessings stamp set
9. Clear embossing powder
10. Non PW purple felt
