Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge...

Hello!! Welcome to Our Creative Corner (OCCC). We are all super excited to bring you weekly stamping challenges. Every Saturday we will post a new challenge along with samples from each of the OCC designers. You'll see a fun variety, from sketches to color combinations to specific products - whatever the host designer can dream up! Subscribe to receive new challenges by email -- that way you won't miss a thing!


Ready to get started?! First up is a sketch challenge, brought to us by Cindy Haffner. To play along, create a card using Cindy's sketch and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS gallery. Leave a comment here with a link to your project so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, please use keyword "OCCC". We're so excited to see what you create!
ETA: We have changed the Key Word in SCS to "OCCC" for Our Creative Corner Challenge.

To prime the pump, we also bring you seven inspiring samples:


Cindy Haffner - Cindy Haffner's Corner



Dawn Easton - Treasure Oiler Designz


Denise Marzec - The Paper Landscaper


Lynda Benden - Stamp Act


Amy Sheffer - Pickled Paper Designs




Laurie Schmidlin - Just Give Me Stamps





















Jennifer Meyer - Jennifer's Sweet Design's




















Thanks so much for stopping by and playing along with Our Creative Corner! Tune in again next week for a product-focused challenge. Until then ...

Happy Stamping!

  47. I'm not sure how many I can enter. I did three entries and posted them on my blog at http://bp3.blogger.com/_B_nOWxdBrX8/SFdDH1qTw-I/AAAAAAAAAEY/02L10hWvd4A/s1600-h/Vase+of+flowers.jpg and http://bp0.blogger.com/_B_nOWxdBrX8/SFdDATc-JFI/AAAAAAAAAEQ/Obr-UeodcR4/s1600-h/Thanks.jpg and http://bp2.blogger.com/_B_nOWxdBrX8/SFdC2Ly995I/AAAAAAAAAEI/WkHwV38Zgag/s1600-h/Asian+Get+Well+Card.jpg. You can see them all at one time at http://arlenesbits.blogspot.com/.
    Now I think I may have to do something else? This is the first entry I've made anywhere but the Hero Arts site, so not sure of the protocol yet. I wasn't sure if I could round the corners on the vertical CS - I would have done that on the Thanks card. I saw that the circle overlapped the second CS, I wanted to have a 1/2 circle to the right only and none on the CS. I'm sure I'll learn as time goes by. Thanks for letting me post.
