Here is one to kick off the week. I hope it inspires lots of creativity:
Saturday, August 29, 2009
The specifics: Use a ball on your card - baseball, soccer, basketball, tennis, golf, or volleyball.
Don't have a stamp, sticker, or patterned paper to use? You can always make one ;)
Here is Vicky's card:
Have fun with this one and I'll see you back here tomorrow for another sketch :)

Specifically, I want to see a vintage image on your card. Let's see Amy's card:
One of these days, I'm going to give it a try -- this card totally inspires me to do it, thanks, Amy!

Do not confuse this with gingham which has a similar appearance but is something different altogether.
Here is Kristie's card:
So.........starting September 6th, we have a new sponsor: Sassy Studio Designs. The DT and I will be featuring images created by owner Lindsay Dyer, and we can't wait to share those with you. So mark your calendars for another fun sponsored week!

So it seems appropriate to have a card with a Back to School theme - that's it, anything goes as long as it's inspired by the theme!
Let's take a look at Tammy's fab creation:
Who else is getting ready for another school year?
Monday, August 24, 2009
1)An - For a cute and clever card that pulled "double duty" beautifully.
2)Lori - For a wonderfully artistic card with alphas and numbers.
3)Pamela - For a terrific Tuesday Trio card.
Congrats and please grab the COTW blinkie for your blogs :)
And let's not forget the Weekly Challenge All-Stars:
Chrissie, Celeste, Tasia D., Rose Miller, Jenny S., Beckynoelle, Linda B., SAM, Rebecca, Patti J., Pamela S. Wade, and Ella
Way to go, Everyone!
And for now for today's challenge....
I've seen this done many times before, and felt that with its popularity, it should be included among the 365 challenges. So all you have to do is include a monogram of some sort on your card. Now, I did a little research on what monograms are because I've seen such a variety, and I wasn't sure of what technically qualifies as one. So we'll use the term loosely and say that an initial or set of initials qualifies, how does that sound?
Gloria's is nicely done, and here it is:
So, no need to Google it, just include a monogram on your card ;)

We can't wait to see your take on the sketch, and we'll see you back here tomorrow for the weekly awards!

Here is what Vicky did with the challenge:

It's such a soft and pretty color - perfect for the theme of Sophie's card:
Absolutely precious, Sophie!
You'll want to mark your calendars for September 6th-15th for a super fun sponsored week, and you can expect more details soon :)

How about a close-up of that sentiment?
Wednesday, August 19, 2009
The details: Create a card with alphabet stickers and include at least one number. Don't have alpha stickers? If you have a stamp set with individual letters and numbers, that qualifies as well.
Here's Kristie's cool card:
What 5 year-old wouldn't like this? It's stellar, thanks Kristie!
Tuesday, August 18, 2009
1) Chupa - for a bee-autiful adaptation of the sketch.
2) Rieca - for a glittery "gift" card that went above and beyond.
3)Cheryl - for blowing us away with the toile stunner.
Congrats ladies - you are welcome to add the COTW blinkie to your blogs!
Here are your Weekly Challenge All-Stars:
Thank you all for your contributions to Art Glitter Week - I was incredibly inspired by all the creativity and talent out there.
We have yet another sponsored week coming up in September, so you can expect to get all the details on that in a couple of weeks. For now, let's keep scrapping :)

Today's challenge is called Double Duty because I want you to make a card that doubles as something else.... examples would be a bookmark, a place card, or some sort of pocket card. HOWEVER - NO GIFT CARD HOLDERS OR MONEY HOLDERS!
I just know you want to see what Gloria came up with for this one, and it's fantastic:

But for now, let's do a sketch:
Saturday, August 15, 2009
And a stunning card it is, Vicky!! So that's the challenge: use toile as the background pattern. This is the last day of Art Glitter week :( It's been tons of fun, but I do have one little piece of good news... How about an extra day to get those cards done for the week? To qualify for the prize, Top Trio, and Weekly Challenge All-Stars, you need to complete your cards for this week by 11:59 PM EST on Sunday, August 16th.
Alright then, get back to those cards~
Thursday, August 13, 2009
wet embossed sentiment
3 different patterned papers
Here is Amy's card:
Can you see the glitter? It is the perfect finishing touch for this card - thanks, Amy! Tomorrow I will share a picture of the prize :)
Wednesday, August 12, 2009
Just a reminder that although we are featuring glitter on our cards, yours do not have to include glitter to qualify for a prize or acknowledgment :)
Today's challenge is about another shape - a STAR - make that the dominant shape on your card. That means that you don't have to create a star-shaped card, but the star shape should really stand out on your card, whether it's that pattern in the paper, or a giant shape on your card.
Kristie's is definitely dominant, and full of glittery goodness - check it out:
