EtsyMom Team Spring 2013 Color Palette Challenge


And we have a winning palette!!! Berry Brights received the most votes making it the palette for the ETSYMOM TEAM SPRING COLOR PALETTE CHALLENGE!


The Color Palette Challenge is one of our best events. If you have not participated before, maybe these reasons will help persuade you to try it out this time around:
  1. It’s sure to benefit your business
  2. It may help you make more sales
  3. You’ll get to be featured in some treasuries
  4. You’re going to be blogged about, Tweeted about, & Facebooked about
  5. You’ll get increased exposure
  6. You could win some really cool free stuff

Doesn't that sound good?

We’re changing the rules of the challenge just a smidge from the last couple times, so pay attention. This year, we will have 2 winners for the challenge: 1 winner for receiving the most votes for their color palette item and 1 winner who creates the most popular treasury.

how does it work

1. You’ll need to sign up to participate in the challenge by filling out this sign up form - you’ve got until April 10 to register your shop.

2. Once you’re registered, you’ve got until April 24th to make the items that will go into your shop. You may use one, two, three, four, five or ALL of the colors in the palette, but no matter what color(s) you choose, be sure to be CREATIVE. To change it up a bit too, this time, you can enter as many items as you want into the challenge.

3. Once your items are made & photographed, you’re going to list them for sale in your shop, but DON’T make the listing live until April 24th!!! You’ll need to tag your listing with “EMCPC” in order for your entries to count & remember…you want that first photo to rock since that’s what people are going to see in the treasuries.

4. Once items are live, EtsyMom team members should start making treasuries. The treasury that receives the most comments and is “favorited” the most will be one of our winners.

5. Photos and links to entries will be posted on Facebook on April 29th. Voting will run from April 29th through May 4th. Anyone can vote, so spread the word!

6. The item that receives the most “likes” will be the winner. And as mentioned previously, the member who creates the most popular Etsy treasury will also win. Winners will be announced on the blog on May 6th.

7. If you are a winner, a prize basket of goodies donated by some of our fabulous team members will be yours.

So what do you think? Have questions? We’ve got answers! Ask away in the comments below or email us at


We still need prizes for this challenge. If you haven’t already donated a prize for a past challenge, please head over to this form to sign up. As always, we could not do these contests without the generosity of our team members.


We want this event to continue to be great, awesome, superb and successful! But you know we can’t do that without you. So whether you decide to participate, be a sponsor (or do both, or do neither), we could still use your help promoting this event.

So tweet about this event or link to it on Facebook. Chat it up on Etsy and Blog about it! We sure would appreciate it! Let's show the world all the talent and creativity our team has to offer.

And now for the fine print…. participation in this contest is open to EtsyMom Team Members Only. If you would like more information on becoming a member, or if you are unsure of your membership status – please contact us right away at

Good luck everyone! We can’t wait to see everyone’s entries!
