Fabulous Stationery Contest: Cards as Inspiration
Remember my recent post on matching cakes to rooms? Creative types find inspiration in nearly everything so let’s flex our creative muscles and have a little fun with a creative contest focused on matching cards (instead of cakes) to rooms. :)
Fabulous Stationery will award 4 winners each with a $50 gift certificate and a huge tote bag designed by Trish Demasi, who designs all of their cards. This tote (see mine below) sold out after only a few months and is no longer offered on their website, so I’m holding the last 4 and saving them just for you (retail value: $40). It is constructed of sturdy 100% cotton canvas, double-handled, flat-bottom 14-1/2 x 12-1/2 x 5?carry-all is roomy enough for folders, a newspaper, a spare pair of shoes or even a laptop. It features a velcro closure and a zippered inside pocket.
1) Use one card from Fabulous Stationery as inspiration and locate 3 rooms that relate to the card design somehow. Something along these lines. If you can’t find anything, create your own room using accessories (chairs, art, rugs, etc.) that you like from your favorite websites. The possibilities are endless. Many of the cards at Fabulous Stationery are available in at least 3 colorways, so click on the image you like to see the other colors you have to work with. If you need help finding rooms, refer to *rooms i heart* and feel free to use any of those. The card that inspired you needs to be part of the final image you pull together. I suggest grouping them all together, much like the image displayed above showing the cake.
2) When your image is prepared, please upload it to your flickr account (if you do not have one, please create one for free), and email your entry to me (decor8blog AT yahoo.com) which should include all of the following:
a. Your name.
b. Your blog/website url.
c. Why you selected the card and the name of the card design.
d. A few comments about the overall design and anything additional you’d like to add.
e. A link to it on flickr (no email attachments please).
f. Your state + country.
Note: Not all entries will be selected as finalists (I will select 10), I will upload them to a folder so decor8 readers can view them all. Each image in the folder will hyperlink to your blog or website (if you wish).
Unlike the mood board contest, I will only post 10 finalists together in a single post, and when I have selected the winners, I will post the images of the 4 winning entries along with a link to the folder showing all of the images in one final post.
Entry Deadline: Wednesday, August 8th. Midnight EST.
Have fun! Be creative! And if you have any questions, please ask them below.
