Ch. #67 Midway: Opt. Twist…FLIP-A-COIN

Welcome back crafters! It is the 15th of the month and that means it is time for the midway of our current challenge. I hope that you and your families all continue to stay well in the various regions that you reside.

Right now, as we are halfway through the month of July, it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with their sweet images from All Dressed Up Stamps, our guest sponsor this month!

Clicking on the DT names will take you to the individual blogs where you can check out the details for all these wonderful cards. Pat, who is currently on leave, had some time to join us again this month.

If you are interested in purchasing the image featured in a particular card, you can click on the link indicated below the creation to head to the page in the All Dressed Up Stamps store where it can be found.

So if you haven't entered already, what are you waiting for? It is time to link up your Christmas and other holiday cards for July. Below you will find a refresher of the details for this challenge.

Please remember that this is a CARDS ONLY link up. While we've had some lovely tag entries, ornaments and other creative projects in the past, we've sadly had to disqualify them.

Challenge #67

 Optional Twist: FLIP-A-COIN

If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, be sure to create a card that follows our FLIP-A-COIN theme as DESCRIBED BELOW. 

Keep in mind though, that you don't need to follow the twist to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win TWO images from this month's sponsor, All Dressed Up Stamps. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Eclectic Mix 1 (you can see a preview for this set by clicking HERE).

Flip-a-Coin Challenge

For this challenge, let the flip of a coin decide certain aspects of your card. Thanks to Beccy from Beccy’s Place for allowing me to use this ‘Flip-a-Coin’ idea that I saw over on her challenge blog.

Grab a coin and flip it. If it lands on ‘heads’, use the card ingredient listed in the first box under the title, ‘HEADS’. If it lands on ‘tails’, use the card ingredient listed in the first box under the title, ‘TAILS’.

Keep flipping the coin until you have selected items from each of the five rows, then create a card using the five ingredients you flipped for. Then be sure to let us know somewhere in your post, which ingredients you used.

Make a card with 3 layers or less Make a card with 4 or more layers
Make a rectangular or square card Use a fancy fold technique
Add dots to your card Add stripes to your card
Add lace or ribbon to your card Add gems or pearls to your card
Add a frame to your card Use faux or real stitching on your card

If you are new to this unique challenge, you can find out the impetus behind why I started it under the 'Introductions' tab. As this is a different kind of link up where we have both an Anything Goes Christmas or other December Holiday option AND an optional twist to follow, be sure to read all the details and rules you need to know in order to participate, by checking out the 'Challenge Details' tab (both tabs located at the top of the blog). I have provided a summary of the most important rules in the right sidebar.

If you would like a say in determining which digital paper will be offered to those who link up a minimum of two cards this month, be sure to vote in our poll. Click HERE to head there now.

Don't Forget, if everything goes according to plan...
