October 2023 Inspiration Challenge Winners

Ute Altenew October23 Challenge

Ute incorporated elements from the beloved Poppy Garden and Beautiful Blossoms stamp sets, and this card came to life. It's a testament to how even the simplest techniques can yield stunning results!

20231017 2Inspired by Erum's 3D embossing folder technique, Juillen applied the technique using this challenge's color combination. Using Peony Sunshine 3D Embossing Folder and Sentiment Strips Stamps Set,  she gave the card a strikingly simple yet elegant look.

Screenshot 1Pam Boedeker deviated from the traditional holiday color palette, opting for a non-traditional scheme that added a new energy to her creation. Her use of the Dry Brush Poinsettia, Bird of the Mountain, and Perfect Poinsettia 3D Embossing Folders resulted in this delightful card.

Screenshot 2 Challenges always spark Jennifer's card-making creativity. In this piece, She showcased the Craft-A-Flower: Rhododendron Layering Die Set, finally nailing the background using the Linear Crossroads Die, creating a beautiful panel adorned with delicate petals and a well-placed ‘Condolences' stamp from the Oriental Poppy Set.
