WCMD 2016 | Welcome + Details + Craftie Challenge For All!


It is Midnight of October 1st here at w&w headquarters so we are kicking off the World Card Making Day (WCMD) celebrations! Woohoo!

Beginning at 1:00 a.m. (CST) we will be posting challenges throughout the day, every 2 hours, right up until 11:00 p.m.! And that's not all! At 7:00 a.m. you will get inspired by our October Leading Lady, the one and only Maya Isaksson!! AND at 9:00 a.m. we have a very special WCMD Big Hop featuring a dazzling array of very special guests!!

For right now let's get some of the nitty gritty information out of the way so we can have fun, fun, fun all day (and night) long!
  1. We want everyone to be able to play so there is *no* requirement to use w&w products although we would be thrilled if you did (and we have freebies in the shop and for our Facebook Family). ;-)  Please make a new card though!
  2. We will have all challenges open until next Sunday, October 9, 2016 at 11:55 p.m. CST to let you create a little more than just on WCMD because celebrations should never be limited to a single day, right?   
  3. If you are unable to participate in the challenges, simply comment on the posts.  We will be giving one prize to a randomly drawn commenter compiled from all WCMD 2016 posts.
  4. Add your link to the appropriate Inlinkz Link-up tool for that post.  You may enter as many times as you wish while the challenges are open.  There will a prize posted on each challenge and one card will be randomly chosen as a winner of that prize from those that Link-up.
  5. Have tons of fun!
>>>SCHEDULE & CHALLENGE LINKS<<<


EDITOR'S NOTE: Winners of all the challenges will be announced on a w&w blog post on Wednesday, October 26, 2016.

>>>GRAND PRIZE<<<

We really want to reward those who enter multiple challenges.  The crafters who enter a different card for at least 3 of the challenges (hopefully all of them!) AND add GP to the name of their link (for example "Jane Smith GP") will be entered into a special pool to receive the Grand Prize.  Entering the WCMD Craftie Challenge below will qualify as 1 of those 3 challenges.    

What is the Grand Prize you ask?  We are giving away $100 credit to the w&w shop (just in time for our upcoming next Release)!

    >>>WCMD CRAFTIE CHALLENGE<<<

    So to kick off our challenges we have a fun and easy one for you just like we did for WCMD 2015.  Simply take a craftie.  A craftie can include a picture or two of where you are making all of your cards for WCMD (this may include the table you are working on, the room, locale, etc.), you crafting, your crafting companions, etc.  We simply adore pictures of crafting in action, crafty spaces and works in progress! Post about your picture(s) on your blog, instagram (#wwWCMD2016, #craftie), Facebook, gallery or the like and link them up below using the Link-up tool.

    Craftie Challenge Prize: $25.00 credit to the w&w shop.

    Enter the Challenge:



    Now that you have all the information get comfy, grab your favourite drinks and/or snacks, inks, stamps, papers and the like and get your craft on!

    Lots of love and happy card making,
    Taheerah (Winnie & Walter Publicist)

    2. Oh I love the fact that anyone can enter now, as I don't own a single stamp from w&w, not that I don't want, it's not available here...hopefully I can play in a few challenges this time, before my I go on my holidays in a few days time.

    10. Thank you, thank you, for having your challenges last all week. I seem always to have outside commitments on WCMD that make my participation limited on that actual day. I LOVE using my W&W products, but thank you for opening up your challenges to all products so everyone can participate. Can't wait to join in!!!

    28. Pity I just read all this. I linked up four cards to seven challenges. Next year I'll be more alert to this fun.

    29. A bit late, but I had fun creating three cards under a lot of time pressure today. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration. Cheers!

    30. My craftie is late due to a "shaker-cindent" but I thought I would share it anyway - THANK YOU for making WCMD a week of FUN :)

      PS - don't ask me how it feels when your hand gets stuck on the foam just before you attach the backing ... all I will say is that hands, seed beads and sequins are a challenge to remove
