Default Need a Challenge. Open Sketch Challenge swap. Due June 6th 2013

New Open Sketch Challenge swap. Due June 6th 2013

What is a Sketch Challenge? "You take the sketch I provided and use any stamp set, any accessory, and any kind of paper to make a card. So all of the cards have the same basic layout, but they all look very different."

-It is fine to flip the sketch, change panel sizes, shapes, card size and border as you wish (unless stated in the write up for the week), a little tweaking is fine but let’s see those main elements of the posted layout please.
(The numbers and colors are requested from players so it's easier to read the layout, it means nothing towards colors used or number of borders when creating your project.)

You will have your choice of 10 sketches. You can pick one or do all. I have picked easy, Med and a harder one to challenge all of you. Post which sketch you will be doing. Have fun.

Master Thread Find, files and links of past challenges.

SCSketches Gallery (Layouts starting at SC01 to the present week.)


The stamps U chose to ink should reflect You. We want our swapper to feel as if they are receiving a card from a special friend. Be you I encourage sense of humor and off the cuff cards. If you are not into this you can still join and pm me and tell me you do not want sassy off the cuff cards. I want everyone to be happy and have fun. Anything goes here.

You must check in 2 weeks before the end date and let me know you are still in the swap. If you need to drop out that is fine life happens but I don't have the time to pm 20 people a few times to see if you are still in the swap. If you can't do this then don't sign up. Thank you.


Description requirement:
Full Size Card - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 It could be a regular full size card, Fancy folds, pop ups any style card are always welcome. If you make a long card or different size please include envies.

Quantity: 5+1 of each Sketch you pick.
(the plus one is for the hostess...that's me

You will make six cards in total and receive five back
You will not get one of your own back, so make sure to make an extra one for yourself!

Vendor products:
No vendor restriction, but please use only good quality card stock
Please Follow sketch for layers.
Embellishments:
Take pride in making fabulous cards with friends in mind
Everyone is welcome. If you never done a swap before take the plunge it will be fun.


Deadline: In my hands by June 6th, 2013 and I will have them postal within 10 days of the due date. Cards not received by then will regrettably be returned to sender as not to hold up the swap.


Mailing instructions: Packaging and Swap Return:
Mailing: Put your cards in a zip lock bag with the swap name, your real name, and your SCS name. Please send a self addressed stamped envelope with the same postage as it took to send to me plus two extra stamps just in case needed. Thanks!

DO NOT send metered postage as we all know they only work for day of purchase!! If you would rather use Priority mail, please include for Flat Rate Envelopes 5.60 or Small Flat Rate Box 5.80
priority stamp and a self-addressed priority label. I will provide priority envelope. If you are mailing from Canada please include $8 US to cover return postage, and I will return whatever is left to you.

All return mail will be sent via First Class unless you request (and provide for) otherwise. NO METERED POSTAGE PLEASE.


Please don’t hesitate to post questions to this thread. I welcome all advice. Welcome all swappers to post messages and make friends during the swap.
Thanks for joining!!

Will do. I just need to take a few minutes to look at them and decide. I hope I'll get them looked at and decided upon over the weekend.

Dumb questions here, or maybe I'm just tired. I will be making 1 sketch per spot, right? And can I choose from any of the sketches or just from the ones you listed at the beginning of your post? And what are the one at the bottom, are they the same and you're just waiting to put our names with them?

As I said, I'm tired and just not following other than I don't have to struggle to design a card just follow a sketch and make it my own. Thanks Viv.

That's what I thought but my brain was just too tired to figure it all out. I can be such a goober sometimes. I'll let you know soon which one. I'm getting ready to go visit the group and choose.

I got your pm Thanks for inviting me....I do like the idea of a late due date plus having a layout is so much easier for me than trying to create the whole thing from scratch....

I will for sure take a spot just got to decide which one...

Hi Karen - yes it has been a long time. I've not done very many swaps in the last year.

After a kinda crazy week I decided to just do little things here. I'm still working on my craft room. It's getting better a little at a time. Hope everyone else is have a great weekend too.
