Happy Wednesday! Today we have something new to share with you… our first Designer’s Choice Challenge! For this series we will be offering a variety of challenges… each one a designer’s choice of course! In the coming weeks our Rock Stars will all be taking a turn at playing “host” and creating a challenge for you to play along with. We’ll be offering challenges centered around a theme, technique, colors, embellishment… you name it! All kinds of fun stuff!! πŸ˜€

Repeat Rock Star, Darsie Bruno came up with this wonderful idea and is going to get us started by challenging you all to create a Scenic card. Darsie loves to create scenic cards and it really shows. Isn’t this card gorgeous?!

So a few days ago Darsie shared this inspiration card with her fellow Rock Stars and asked them to create their own cards with a Scenic theme. Check out all the fantastic cards they came up with! Such a variety too!!

Now we’d love for you to play along with us!

Here are all the details…

2. Post your Scenic card on your blog or online gallery and be sure to reference Repeat Impressions DCC330 Designer’s Choice Challenge. Then link it here with the inlinkz widget below. (Please provide a direct link to your post, not the entire blog.)
3. Submissions will be accepted until Tuesday, April 12th at 5PM EST.
4. On April 13th we will provided you with a new Designer’s Choice Challenge (DCC) to play along with. At the end of the month we will announce the winner of our April DCC’s. For this challenge the winner will receive any one unmounted sheet of stamps of their choice!

Yesterday we wrapped up our final CASE Card Challenge. Many thanks to all those who took the time to participate over the last several months. We loved seeing all your creations!

And now it’s time to announce the winner from our March CASEs. Our friends at random.org have selected Ruza Rebel as our latest winner! Congrats, Ruza! You just scored an unmounted sheet of rubber stamps… any sheet of your choice!! Please leave a comment on this post and I will contact you with details. πŸ˜€

Don’t forget… we also have a Sketch Challenge going on right now. Have you submitted a card yet? It’s still not too late! Submissions are open until April 5th at 5pm. You can follow this link to my M2311 Sketch Card Challenge post for all the details and inspiration.

And now for some less happy news… Today we bid a fond farewell to Rock Star, Ayana Posadas. Ayana is one busy girl what with school, work, stamping and blogging. We were so happy to have her on the team as long as we did. Her use of vibrant colors and clean style never failed to make us smile! We’re hoping she might join us for a challenge now and then if her time allows. We’ll miss you Ayana and wish you all the best!

Thank you all so much for spending time with us this week! We hope we’ve inspired you to get creative and look forward to seeing your card linked here soon!

Wendy

P.S. Any readers out there in the Ocean City, MD area? We’ll be at the Stamping by the Sea show at the Carousel Hotel & Resort this weekend. If you are planning to attend please be sure to stop by and look us up… we’d love to meet you!
