Challenge #1: Create a pattern strip from stamps:
Stamps used: Quilter's Sampler; Card stock: SU Sahara Sand, Creamy Caramel; Ink: Sahara Sand, Copics; Embellishments: tiny buttons.
Challenge #3: Cut a window in card and tie a ribbon from window to edge of card:
Stamps: Vintage Picnic; Card stock: SU So Saffron, white; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics; Dies: Spellbinders Classic Ovals, SU oval punch; Embossing folder: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots; Ribbon: seam binding dyed with Copic markers.
Challenge #4: Color challenge (Ripe Avocado, Simply Chartreuse, Hawaiian Shores & Enchanted Evening):
Stamps: Autumn Abundance; Card Stock: SU Not Quite Navy, white; Patterned Paper: DCWV Citrus; Ink: Black, alcohol markers (Copic & Dick Blick); Embellishments: ribbon from stash, Clay Bord cut to 2"x2", on which the flowers were stamped. Dies: Spellbinders Labels 1, Tim Holtz Brackets.
Challenge #5: Create faux border from solid stamp:
Now this one was really a challenge for me because I don't have any solid stamps from Papertrey. The closest I could come was the solid car stamp from Enjoy The Ride; I stamped the upper windshield area in red along the side of the card:
Stamps: Enjoy The Ride, Vintage Picnic (tiny star); Card stock: white, red Martha Stewart crepe paper, linen textured grey card stock from stash; Patterned Paper: yellow from DCWV Citrus; Die: Enjoy The Ride, Spellbinders stars; Ink: Black, SU Real Red, So Saffron.
Challenge #7: Layer images from different sets:
When I saw Betsy Veldman's jaw-droppingly lovely card made for this challenge, I just had to CASE it, colors and all. I didn't have the same sets or dies, but just about everything else is copied:
Stamps: Fancy Flourishes, Wonderfully Whimsical, Vintage Picnic, Mega Mixed Messages; Card Stock: SU Certainly Celery, white; Ink: SU Rose Romance, Pretty In Pink, black. Dies: Spellbinders Labels 1; Embellishments: SU button, white silk ribbon.
Of course my cards are not a patch on the Papertrey challenge ones, but it was fun anyway. Don't know if I'll get a chance to do the other five challenges before the deadline, so I decided to post these for now.
Have a nice day!
