Default LSC173 It's NOT Hip to be Square

LSC173 It’s NOT hip to be square.

Hi Stampers! I’m your Challenge Hostess this week.

Let’s make shaped cards! Stay away from squares and rectangles…even circles. Think outside of the box. You can easily do this with a ¼ sheet of scrap cardstock. Sketch your design on the cardstock. Then cut it out. Use the shape as a template for your card. Remember to have a “hinge” on the fold so that you can still open and close the card like a book.

As always on Friday, try to keep your layers and embellishments limited.

Here are some samples:

Super Robot

Cold Twigs

Love Always


Keyword: LSC173

LSC173 Gallery

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!


Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Wow! DAWN!!!! Great challenge...I didn't have enough room in the description to relate that Markie's FAVORITE toy in the world is Koalie, his stuffed Koala...He LOVES koalas, has done reports on them, and conned us into purchasing ZOO memberships so that we could spend countless hours staring at SLEEPING koalas! LOL! (They sleep between 22 and 23 1/2 hours a DAY!)
