Hello and welcome back to our Challenge Blog post! Let’s kick off today’s post by announcing our October Mood Board Challenge results!
The winner of our October Mood Board Challenge is… Gloria!
We loved Gloria’s take on our Caffeine Themed Mood Board for last month. Her pretty white heat embossed Mini Wild Florals are a gorgeous watercolored accent to her tea cup.
Here are three additional projects that especially stood out to us:
We love the fun scene that Olesya created with our Love and a Cat set!
Gwendolyn created a beautifully colored Wishful Wildflower card paired up with a pretty coffee pot.
Jenny paired our Panda Can’t Even set with the gorgeous layered peony from our Haute Stacks to create this fun card!
All of the entries from our Mood Board Challenge were so pretty and we’d like to thank everyone who participated in last month’s Challenge!
For this month’s new challenge, we have a cue word: HOLIDAY
The prize for this challenge will be a $50 gift certificate to our shop!
To participate in our challenge, create a paper crafting project based on the theme “HOLIDAY”. You may use our team’s cards for inspiration but it’s not required!
- You must use a Ton product as the main focal point of your card or tag.
- Display the cue word on your post and include a link to the challenge in the body of your post.
- Link your card to the new link up tool each month.
- There is no limit on the number of cards/tags you wish to enter into the challenge.
- The winning project will be chosen based upon detail, composition and aesthetics.
- Challenge winners and Honorable Mentions will be announced during the introduction of the subsequent challenge.
- Winners will be invited to be a guest designer for the next challenge.
- This challenge will close on November 30 at 11:55pm EST.
