WEEK 2: Challenge 199: Card Resolutions

Hello, Ai Fans!

Ready for our first challenge of the year? Stretch yourself to try a new card technique with us on our blog! Last week, Dana showed a cool masking technique she used to protect her image to make a cool background! Now, our designers are here to show some new techniques they wanted to try for the New Year! To learn about their card, click the designer's name to visit their personal blog with more info. Find the stamp sets they used at!

Karen with Boy Cupid Set

Kerry with At The Movies Set

Renee with Tweetheart Set

Sharon with Birthday Whoot Set 

Love the diversity in these cards! Everyone has something new to try! Did a technique catch your eye? We'd love to have you play along with our challenge!

Did you know we offer a prize pack to the top spot winner and a free stamp set selected by the honorable mentions?! For this challenge, we want to see you practice a new-to-you technique. This technique can be about cardmaking, stamping, coloring, or more! Go ahead and try something new!

Here are the challenge rules …
✻ Please make a new card or creation. You can make any crafty item you wish; this is not limited to cards!
✻ Limit two submissions per person. You will receive extra votes if you use Art Impressions stamps!
✻ The Ai Challenge is open to everyone, international submissions are welcome!
✻ Include a link back to the Ai Blog or grab our button on the top right of our sidebar!
✻ Share the Ai love by clicking and commenting your fellow crafters.
✻ Make sure to get your link up by Wednesday, January 18th at 5:00 p.m. PST to enter your creations.
✻ Good luck and happy stamping!

What a fun challenge! Thank you for the amazing card inspiration! My resolution is to use more unused stuff, untried techniques, and do more CASEing!! Happy New Year! Hugs, Darnell

My resolution is to make more than one card at a time , with maybe slight variations (but no mass producingšŸ˜œ). Lol
