Challenge #10: A sketch by Amy

Hello.....It's Amy and I'm so happy to be hosting this week's Papertrey Paper Dolls challenge!
This week I wanted to do a sketch using scallops and after
seeing this card by Dawn McVey, I knew that was it!!
I have used a similar layout before here but this is just a bit different.
(Thanks to Jen for helping me with this sketch!)

I love the look of scallops and especially Papertrey's new scallop dies! 
So if you have those, use them but if not just substitute something else for them! 
Here is my card using the above sketch!

Please come play along....we have our challenges up for 3 weeks!! 
We all would LOVE to see what you create during our challenges!

Challenge #9: What's Old is New!

Happy Thursday!!! I don't know about you, but I absolutely loved Papertrey's June release! From the Friendship Jars to All About You to Flutterby Friend, I just loved it! I am super excited about inking up several new sets. I'm sure that when my order arrives I'll have a hard time deciding what to ink up first!

Speaking of what to ink up first...that's just what our challenge is going to be this week! I want you to think back to one of the first PTI sets you ever inked up (for some I know it's not been too long, and that's OK!) Using one of those first sets, make something new and link it up below for us all to ooh and ahh over! 

Little Lady was in my very first PTI order, so she got some loving for this challenge.

I hope you give this challenge a go...I'd love to see what set brought you to share in this lovely little addiction to Papertrey Ink. You've got plenty of time...three whole weeks! The past two challenges are still open as well...give them a look and play along!

Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #8

Hi, everyone! It's Lee Anne, and it's my turn to host this week's challenge. I really like the sketch challenges that we've been having, but for some reason I'm drawn to a color challenge this week.

A few weeks ago my family celebrated my son's 5th birthday and my nephew's 4th birthday with one big party.  It was a lot of fun, and I should have been more focused on the party, but instead I was focused on this shirt that my sister had on.  I kept seeing PTI colors the whole time and couldn't wait to get home to put something together.

So that is my challenge to you.  Use this color palette to create your project. (If you don't have these exact colors, then try to get close and have some fun!)

Here's the card I created using Take 3: Summer and Inside & Out: Thank You:

And here's the inside:

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Papertrey Ink Supplies:
Stamps: Take 3: Summer, Inside & Out: Thank You
Paper: Dark Chocolate, Ripe Avocado and Stampers Select Cardstocks
Ink: Dark Chocolate, Hawaiian Shores, Ripe Avocado
Ribbon: Ripe Avocado

Other Supplies:
Spellbinders tags die
