A NEW Challenge!!

OK Ladies, it's time for a new GSG challenge!

So here are the rules:
  1. Go find the first card you ever made, first card you ever posted in an on-line gallery or at least the oldest thing you can find.

  2. Remake it- do something to bring it up to your current standards... but we want to know what you decided to change. You may change the stamps, colors, layout... whatever you want, but we want to see the resemblance to that orignal.

  3. Tell us how you've updated your look!

  4. Post both cards or at least a link to both cards so we can see how far you've come! Be sure to use the keyword GSGC15.

You will thoroughly enjoy seeing how far you've come in your stampin' endeavors- I promise!

So that you all get your nerve up, I'll go first and show you my very first upload and how I've improved it. Details will be posted on my blog in a little while.

On your mark, get set, GO!

Limited Supply Challenge: Monochromatic Mahem!

OK, another attempt to get you GSGers, and visitors to play along. Don't disappoint me this time! When you are done, upload to the web somewhere then post a comment with a link directly to your card. Be sure to use the keyword GSGC14!

This week your challenge is to use any, all or some of these limited supplies while making a monochromatic card:

  • Paper: One pattern of DSP (remember, monochromatic), one neutral and unlimited solid colors (but remember, monochromatic- so maybe all pink/reds or all shades of blues etc).
  • Stamps: 2 stamp sets required, one current and one retired.
  • Accessories: Any as long as they are all the same color!
And for the record, I have no idea how hard or easy this will be, I haven't tried it yet! I will post my sample when I get it done, promise!

ETA: OK I'm done! Here's mine, and it wasn't so hard after all! In fact, I combined 3 challenges today!

OK, ready-set-GO!

First Challenge of 2009!!!

An inspiration! I found this embroidered coat on Tracyporter.com . Isn't it beautiful?!?

So, the gals here at GSG are challenging YOU to let this inspire you! Make a card or something paper crafty and then share a link here so we can all see what you've done!

If you upload to Splitcoast be sure to include GSGC13 in the keywords so we can search for you!

I hope you can play along!

ETA: Updating to add my sample. Details are on my blog.
