Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #14

Hello everyone! This is C with a new challenge for the Papertrey Paper Dolls and followers of this blog. I decided to challenge everyone to do 2 things: (1) use a color that you would not typically use and (2) use a technique on your card that you have not used in a while. So, for me, the color orange is not something I typically use outside of a halloween  card. The second part of the challenge was a technique. I decided to go back to basics and do some embossing. Here is what I ended up with for the group...and I have to say that I happy I used the orange!

Visit my blog for more detailed photos and a supply list. Happy scrapping!

Please join us in submitting your card for the challenge below using Mr. Linky. You will have 3 weeks to submit your creation. We look forward to seeing all the wonderful cards that are created!

Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #13

"...cuz we are livin' in a material world and I am a material girl!"

Okay, not really...
Hi! It's Leish, and it's my turn to host this week's challenge. I have to be completely transparent here and tell you that I'm super duper nervous! =) Anyway, on with the challenge!

Your mission, should you choose to accept to rummage through your closets for some kind of MATERIAL to serve as your inspiration. It can be your clothing closet, linen closet, crafting closet, etc. No running out to the fabric store, snatching up some new material, and THROWING it in your closet so you can use it! LOL.

I decided to use my wedding dress for inspiration.

Here's the card I made:
I hope you play along!

Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge # 12

Good Morning!  It's me Lisa  (mimiggallery)  and it is my turn to host the PTPD challenge this week. 

 I decided to take a tour of my house to find something that would be a good idea for this weeks challenge.  Taking a tour sounds impressive.  Ten good strides and your done.  Ha-Ha.  I  ended my " tour"  when some work from one of my favorite artists caught my eye.  The work was from my oldest daughter.  I have two other children so guess what my next challenges will be!!! 

 Carly created this piece in her 7th grade art class.  It is a little ceramic dish.  I really love her choice of colors and the simplicity of the flower.  I incorporated both in my card, but you can use this as a color challenge or add flowers if you wish.

Here is the card that I created for the challenge.

Now it is your turn. Add your card to the link below so we can all see what you come up with.  Can't wait to see! 
The link is open for three weeks and there are other challenges open now as well.  Scroll down for some more fun.

Have fun!

Paper Dolls Challenge #11: Create a non-standard sized card

Hi everyone!

It’s Anika here with your challenge today. I need to give a big ‘Thank You’ to Suzanne for posting this for me! So here it is…

I always love long narrow cards, square cards, or shaped cards. So my challenge for you is to create a card that is NOT 5.5” x 4.25”. Any other size or shape will do!

I went with a tall narrow card. It’s 3” x 8”. The flowers are fabric, and the rest is Papertrey. (Of course!)

I’d love to see what you come up with, so link it up below!
