Challenge 6 prolongation!

Because there are only three entries so far, and because I do not want to discourage the two ladies who entered their artwork, I have decided to prolong this challenge until September 1st.
Last day to enter your artwork will be August 31st at midnight.
So enjoy your vacation, and when you come back you can make a nice card about it.
Let's see some more entries!

Weil es bis heute nur drei Einsendungen gibt, und weil ich die zwei Damen die diese Einsendungen gemacht haben nicht enttäuschen möchte, habe ich mich dafür entschieden diese Challenge zu verlängern bis 1 September.
Der letzten Tag worauf noch etwas angemeldet werden kann ist 31. August, bis Mitternacht.
Also geniesse dem Urlaub, und wenn du wieder nach Hause kommst, mache dann eine schöne Karte über dem Urlaub.
Wir sehen gern noch mehr Teilnehmer!

Reminder for challenge 6 - 2017

Because there were not enought entries in Challenge 5 I cannot announce a winner this time.
But I do want to remind you that Challenge 6 is still running. You have another two weeks to enter your artwork about VACATION.
So far there is only one entry, so we could use some more to run the challenge and find a winner.
Look at the inspiring works from the Designteam, maybe the spark will hit you!

CHALLENGE 6 - 2017

It's time for a new challenge.
Challenge 5 will have no winner, because there were only two entries (which did not qualify for the challenge, but at least these ladies took the time to make something!).

Obviously you do not like to think out of the card-box, so this challenge will be about cards again.

The theme of this challenge is    
VACATION

I would like to see a card with your last vacation, or your next vacation, or a vacation memory from your childhood, something you have seen in one of your vacations, or even your dream vacation.
Anything that links to vacation. BUT I would like to read the story behind your card on your blog!

I hope this them will inspire you a bit more!

Reminder for challenge 5 and...... the WINNER of challenge 4!

Challenge nr. 5 is already halfway, and so far there is only one entry! (and that entry is not exactly what I asked for.....). So in spite of the beautiful weather, please pick up your stamps and start creating! You have got until June 14th just before midnight. With all the beautiful examples it should be possible to create something for a man, preferably not a card but a little present. If you still want to make a card it has to be an elaborate card, preferably with a matching envelope. If you need another example, here is a nice Post-it booklet made by Marlies:




Not too difficult, but a very nice present! And we need at least 5 entries for the challenge.....


And now it is time to announce the winner of challenge 4! 
We have unanimously chosen LEANNE HARRIS as the winner. She scored 17 points out of 18!
The second and third place (both 5 points) are Renate (entry nr, 3) and Dora (entry nr. 10).

Congratulations Leanne! You have won a shop credit of 10 euro! Please contact Jetske if you want to know how to claim your prize.

CHALLENGE 5 2017



Thank you all for joining the fourth challenge! I've seen a lot of beautiful cards, it will be difficult to choose a winner.
But first a new challenge has to start. The new theme is:

make something for a man

That "something" can be a decorated notebook, or a set of coasters, or a penholder, or a placemat, or whatever you may think of as a gift for a man.
If you cannot think of a present you may make a card, but it has to be a very elaborate card, preferably with a matching envelope. A card like that can also be used as a wall-hanging (so it is a kind of present!)
You have got until June 14th 23:55 h. to enter your creations. That way they will be ready before Father's Day! (at least in The Netherlands, I have discovered that in other countries Father's Day can be on a different date).
Here is some inspiration from the designteam:



Set of coasters made by Ineke


Notebook made by Ineke


Elaborate card made by Silke


Altered book made by Silke


Steampunk (altered) clock made by former designer Suzanne


Home deco made by Silke




Glasses case made by former designer Suzanne


I hope these examples will inspire you to make even more beautiful creations.
You can post them here by using the Inlinkz tool.

Winner of challenge 3, reminder for challenge 4!



I almost forgot that May has already begun!
It is time to announce the winner of challenge 3. (imagine a drum now.....)
The winner is:
Caro!!!!!!!!!

Again! Sorry! But Caro got 9 points, Alida 6, and Ike, Petra and Dora got 3 points.
So Caro can go shopping (or save her credit for Stempelmekka).
To the others I can only say: don't be disappointed, keep trying, you will winn some time in the future! 
For challenge 4 there are only 3 entries at this moment. The theme is bright blue, to chase away the clouds, so put all your bright blue inks and papers on the table, turn on all the lights to imitate the sun, and see what comes to mind. You can take a look at the three entries or at the examples from the designers to get some inspiration. 
Here are some examples that were on the designteamblog the past few days:



Ineke



Marlies

We need at least 5 entries to choose a winner from, and preferably more!
You may enter as many cards (or ATC, tags, decorations, booklets, boxes etc. etc.) as you want, so let yourself be inspired by the examples and show us your interpretation.
It would be nice if someone else would win the next challenge for a change! :-)
We are looking for surprising interpretations, techniques worked out well, use of new or unexpected materials etc. Something should "catch the eye" or, in this case, make you forget the clouds. You can do it too!
We are looking forward to your creations, you have got until May 14th 23:55 h.!
