Honored Guest Sketch Challenge Contest


This contest is now closed and commenting has been disabled on this post. Thanks to all who participated. Our winner will be announced on Monday, February 18.

Want to be a designer for Verve Visual? Well, now’s your chance! We’re having a card contest that gives everybody the opportunity to strut their stuff. All you have to do is make a card using the following sketch and submit a link to an online photo of your card by Friday, February 15. Please submit links as a comment on this post. Since we want everyone to have a shot, you don’t even have to use Verve Visual stamps (although we LOVE it when you do)! Just create a stamped masterpiece that makes us ooh and ahh using the provided sketch.

A winner will be announced on Monday, February 18 and will be our Honored Guest for the month of March. Our Honored Guest will receive the same kit our Design Team receives, including pre-releases of the new Verve sets releasing in March. The winner will be required to submit 6 projects using the pre-release stamps. We will also be doing some random prize drawings throughout the contest, so be sure to get your cards submitted! There is no limit to the number of cards you can submit, and the contest is open to everyone, including previous Verve Guest Designers.

So, if this sounds up your alley, get your mojo in motion and start stamping! If you need a little somethin’ somethin’ to rev up your engines, be sure to check out the samples our talented design team cooked up with this sketch in the Verve Gallery.

Please Note: Due to time constraints, if your project is selected and you live outside the US or Canada, your Honored Guest position will be scheduled for later in the year.

  43. I thought the Wild Thing sentiment would go great with this card, unfortunately the Verve stamps are still on my wish list. I didn't want to use an image from another company, so I made my own.

    Thanks for such a fun challenge.
