Inspiration Challenge

What a difficult thing it is to choose one person over another. If you remember...and it's ok if you don't...we have been getting ready to invite new design team members into The Rubber Cafe family. It was a very hard selection. There are so many talented people out there. First I want to say Thank You to all the ladies that took the time to submit for a chance at our design team. We were supposed to pick 5 then have a series of challenges...I couldn't pick 5...it was too hard. We have 6. I gave each one a challenge to look through our design team blog and find the card that inspires them...and then make it their own. For the next 3 wednesdays I'll be hosting this adventure and showing off each sample the gals have sent in to us. Now...let's meet the contenders....
Kristine inspired by this card
Maureen inspired by this card


Sabrina inspired by this card


Katie inspired by this card


Maria


Kristen


So...now that you have a chance to look at all the wonderful choices we've made...don't forget to cast your vote...leave a comment and let us know what you think. We also encourage you to find a card that inspires you and play along. Don't forget to give the ladies some love and tell us which is your favorite. I can't pick all by myself...I would have to pick them all. Maybe this isn't the job for me after all. We hope you feel inspired and have a great week.

The first card with the turtles by Kristine is adorable and bright and fun! That one gets my vote.

Julie Masse said...

Wow!! They are all super cards, tough job!! I've always been a fan of Kristine's and her cute turtle card wins my vote! :)

Sherrie said...

Love Kristine and Love the turtles! You rock Kristine....can you guess my vote..lol!

Hmmmm, this is a tough one. I like the way Kristine took the basic feel of her inspiration card (the squares, the borders, the large image portion), but used a different technique in coloring a little scene, thus "making it her own" as the instructions said. So that's my #1 vote. If I could pick two runner-ups... Maria and Kristen's cards are also beautifully textural and so lovely. But truly, all of them are wonderful!

I really love the bright colors and style of Kristine's card. It's similar enough to the original to see that it's the inspiration and unique to Kristine's style. It's perfect!

Difficult to choose just one. It's a toss up between Kristine and Maureen for me - they both did a great job of taking the inspiration and making it their own. The CAS side of me is drawn to the simple elegance of Maureen's card but those cute turtles are beautifully coloured and sure to raise a smile so maybe they just have the edge!

Yara said...
