  5. Great projects! I would love to see a product specific challenge, where everyone uses the same 3 product that just about anyone would have in their craft room.

  8. Fabulous products! I would love a knitting/stiching themed challenge :)

  9. How about a 'make-over' card challenge. Post a very plain aka 'uninteresting' card and the challenge is 'how will you make it better in your own style eg. add embellishment, use different colouring/ medium, add layers of paper ...' but the basic element of the card must be there.
    I am willing to submit my card sample for a 'professional make-over'...lol
    Thx for the chance to win the candy.

  13. WOW what a great challenge, and sooooo awesome entries from the DT too.
    I once tryed a challenge, where we all got the exact same kit to make a card from as we would like from the given products, and then it was amazing to see, how different people had used the exact same materials, and there wasn´t 2 cards, there were even close to each other, even we were 51 participants, so maybe you could just make a list over some certain materials and colors of producvcts, that all people would have , and say f.ex. that you could use pink and green cardstock and yellow and brown paper and 2 blue bottons or whatever, just an example, but it could really be fun to see, what people would make of it everywhere.

  14. Having a challenge where you have to use something specific would be fun. eg. a doily, 5 brads, sandpaper, yarn

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think distressing is nice, or a scenery challenge or just masking stamps. But you have the most beautiful ideas for a great challenge allready yourself.... Thank you for chance of winning this stampset! xxx Marianne MW

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think a great challenge would be fairytales or superheros!

  24. fab cards ladies,i think a good challenge would be oriental as we hardly ever see thee sorts of challenges anymore and i have some stamps getting rather dusty lol xx

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great projects! A challenge where everyone uses the same products would be cool.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wonderful creations indeed!!! A great challenge would be to make something using an image that starts with a designated letter. Such as "A" apple, alligator, acorn, Angel...etc..
    Hugz of thanks

  27. I love the Simon Says Stamp Challenge! Sketch Challenges are my favorite, but it might be fun to see a "life-story" challenge. For example, a card that represents the trajectory of your life, a goal, a major defining moment, an important person...(They do this type of thing all the time on Top Chef, LOL).

    ReplyDelete
  28. I always like to see masculine card challenges.

    ReplyDelete
  29. A challenge I'd like to see is the same stamp from Mo Manning used or Pure Innocence used on a card for every challengee.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'd love to see a challenge with the theme "When I Grow Up."

    ReplyDelete
  31. Alas, I don't have any challenge ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Beautiful samples using dies/punches!!
    I think a fun challenge would be to create a "scene" card, of an unforgettable event or place. That would be quite a challenge, on a card instead of layouts. Hope it's not too difficult ;)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Loved seeing all of the projects! A fun theme...flowers, rolled flowers, trends, use a doily, use metal in your project... I will keep thinking about it. Love this stamp set from Hero Arts! Thank you for sharing.

  36. I think a great challenge would be to try something new, technique, product, etc. Its easy to get stuck in a rut and this would be a fun way to get out of it, and you might find something you love.

  51. While looking for the perfect electronic gadgets or appliances, RightGadgets.in has always been the trusted one to consider. Yet again, this trustworthy service has showed its credibility, and the laptop ranges from Zenith is what that it is currently concentrating on. One can look for www.rightgadgets.in/it.asp?C=Zenith&it=Zenith-Laptops&ct=3 for further details.
