Default TCP Tuesday Challenge for August


It's the first Tuesday of the Month! Which mean that it's TCP Tuesday! That means it's challenge day!

Last month was Tag You're It.

This one is a Long, Tall, Challenge .

We tend to make the same size card. 4.25" x 5.25" or sometimes we get daring a do a square card or a bigger card.

Problem with these cards is that we have to buy special envies for the cards. Or for the square cards, we have to pay extra postage.

This challenge celebrates that under-used envelope, the long, tall one. The legal sized one. The Number Nine.

So, the challenge is to create a card that fits in the Long, Tall, Envelope. There are special challenges that come along with making a card this Long and Tall. The biggest one is it's shape. We aren't used to creating a card that is this long and skinny. What do you do with all that extra space?



The answer is, you use it. Take advantage of the long, flowing space, like I did here using my[URL="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/Cutting.htm#Wave"]Waves CutUps and the Ship Happens stamp set. The little note is cut using the . The card was perfect for layers of waves and a cupful of sweet penguins floating away.



Lori Tecler brings in another penguin with her card. She paper pieces the kite from the Up, Up and Away set. It's just darling!

Kimberly also stamped up to this challenge. Check her out. She never disappoints.

Now, I want to see what you stamp up!
Here are the Deets.
  1. The First Tuesday of the Month I will post a challenge on this blog. The challenge will also be posted on our Splitcoaststampers forum and on our Facebook page. If you want to play along you just upload your design right here on this page using the InLinkz button. (The challenge button will be posted on the right hand column of this blog so you don't have to search around)
  2. If you want to display your pretties on Splitcoaststampers using keyword TCPTUESAug13
  3. The Challenge will be a month-long challenge and you can play as many times as you like during that month.
  4. Cards and projects must have at least one Cat's Pajamas Stamp or CutUps die in the project.
  5. On the First Monday of the Month a winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and crowned Swanky Stamper.
  6. The Swanky Stamper will not only be acknowledged as the Swankiest Stamper for that month, but will also receive some of the stamps from our next release and get to play along with us at our Pajamas Party and Blog Hop. AND... They'll even get a special spot in the Gallery highlighting the project that won them the gig AND as snazzy badge to display on their blog.
  7. The winner will be announced the First Monday of the month on Splitcoaststampers, Facebook page and my Blog

Great challenge Alma! What are the finished dimensions for the long tall card? I'm afraid that I've only made one in my life and have no clue!

I LOVE making long, tall cards so I was excited to make something for this challenge! I made something this week (when I really should have been making boxes because I'm moving in a little over a week!).

Trouble Ahead

TFL!

Managed to squeek one in at the very last minute using one of my newest sets Fly High. It's so awesome that I already have my new sets to play with. Thanks for shipping so fast Miss Meowy!

Misti - your card makes me ok with the idea of winter and snow if it's that pretty! Love the added bling!

Cindy - those Darryls look like they're going to cause trouble. Cute little scene!

Linda - looooove the movement/interactive part of your card. perfect for that new little bun to add some wow!


Now that I got my order in my hands this morning, I'm looking forward to playing along next month!

Down to the wire! It's been overcast and rainy here in Colorado. Perfect stamping weather. Created one more card for this months challenge with only 27 minutes to go on the Linky.

Thank you both! I had a lot of fun making it (and my craft space is a mess to prove it)!
