Challenge #14 – Learning is fun!

23 Sep

Hello, and welcome to a new Young Crafters Unite challenge! We hope you will be able to join us in this challenge =)

This month’s challenge

The challenge for this month is to make a card using a technique you’ve learned recently, or one of your favorite techniques. We look forward to seeing what you create, and what techniques you’ll use =)


Featuring: Neat and Tangled stamps

This month is extra special, because we are featuring stamps from Neat and Tangled! We were so excited when our DT member Danielle Walls started her stamp line Neat and Tangled last month, and now we get to share the joy with all of you! The entire DT used Neat and Tangled stamps for their cards this month =)


Awesome Design Team contributions

We are so lucky to have a great design team to give you lots of inspiration for this fun challenge.  Without further ado, here are the DT’s amazing creations for this challenge:

This month we have two prizes, one for each of two winners!

We are so lucky as to be sponsored by the awesome Simon Says Stamp for this challenge. They are giving one lucky winner a $25 gift certificate to their online store! If you haven’t checked out their online store before, it’s totally worth your time. They have a huge selection of stamping and scrapbooking supplies =) You can check them out here =) Thank you so much, Simon Says Stamp!

We are also thrilled to be sponsored by Danielle at Neat and Tangled for this month’s challenge. Danielle is giving one winner a $20 gift certificate to use in the Neat and Tangled webshop! She has several cute and pretty clear photopolymer stamps to choose from, and they are all great quality =) Thank you so much for sponsoring us this month, Danielle!
