Design Contest: Hanging With Your Peeps

March 13, 2012

The Easter Bunny tends to get all the good press, so let’s have an Easter design contest featuring peeps! I don’t mean those marshmallow guys (who are copyright protected, by the way) but chicks or chickens or eggs.

Artists may submit ONE of their own designs to the contest. Just give us a link to the card in the comments section of this post. The design must be an Easter card featuring eggs, chicks or chickens.  Other than that, the choice is up to you. Regular card, photo card, customizable text card … go for it.

ACT OF KINDNESS BONUS – I will assign 3 additional votes to any artist who features the Easter card in a post on their blog (just give us the URL of your blog post). I will also assign 5 additional votes to any artists who submits a card design from another GCU artist instead of their own (give us the other artist’s name). That’s 8 votes up for grabs!

PINTERESTING BONUS – All you Pinners out there,  have a special prize for you. Just create an Easter With the Peeps board and pin 5 of the submitted cards to your new board. I’ll do a random drawing at the end of the contest for a fabulous prize (to be announced).

Deadline to submit your designs is March 20th. On March 21st, I will open the voting. Whoever receives the most votes will win a $10 gift certificate OR 5 free card credits.

Get cracking (ha!) if you want to win!

      I’ll accept it because the contest specifies chicks, chickens or EGGS, and I see your pretty Persian eggs on the card! 🙂

    not sure if this counts as a blog, but I’ll place it anyway …

      Yep, Gerda, it counts. But the Pinterest thing … to qualify for the extra points, you have to create a board and pin 5 of the contest entries, so that one doesn’t count, I’m afraid. Sorry.

        Corrie, I’m so SORRY for not reading throughly.
        Now I the full 5 cards, which was easy. I saw a lot of cute ones. 😉

    I don’t believe I have any cards to fit the category, so I found two other artist’s cards that I liked. Since one of them was Gerda’s cute card, I’ll submit my other favorite, one of Eugenia’s cards:

    I have my New Easter Egg Cookies up for entry, I chose the West Highland Dog (even though this is available in 70+ Dog Breeds) because this has been my best seller. I have also posted this on my website and have even placed all the other entries into my post. I will add new ones as they are entered! Good Luck everyone!

    how would we post if it’s a new design and hasn’t gone through the review process? Or is this only for cards that have already been approved?

      If you have a new card that hasn’t been approved yet, just upload a copy to your private gallery (use the waive review option) and give us the link. Just be sure your private gallery module is enabled in your store. You can always delete the card from your private gallery afterward.

    My effort
    Hope I am not too late

      Cissillia, that isn’t a good link – it goes nowhere. I’m guessing either because the card is still in the review process and hasn’t been approved, OR it’s in your private gallery and you haven’t activated the private gallery module in your store. If you can get me a proper link to an actual card, I’ll add it to the voting.

    Corrie here’s the right link: in my private Gallery for my Easter peeps..

    Can you delete that other link above?

    Hello. When will the 5 extra votes be avail to us?

    ‘I will also assign 5 additional votes to any artists who submits a card design from another GCU artist instead of their own (give us the other artist’s name).’

    • March 21, 2012 5:41 pm

      At the end of the voting period, I will tally up the votes and add extra votes as necessary for each artist.
