Challenge 13: Cherished Colour


Firstly, sorry so much for the delay in posting this! I'm back at work now and still in the process of moving apartments - oh excuses, excuses I know, I'm just being a bad blogger aren't I? LOL! I PROMISE to be more organised from this day forward - honest!

I was overwhelmed with the amount of entries and stunning CAS cards for the last challenge - you all really captured the CAS style so well!

Well I hope you're all ready for the next challenge?! This week there's no excuse for not playing along because this week we want you to create a card using your favourite colour. This challenge should get your mojo going if you can indulge in your fave colour to start with!

Firstly my fave colour without a doubt is green! Some say I like it because I can turn into a green-eyed monster at times but I say I like it because it's fresh and fun just like PTI's Leaf Green *drool*!

Here's my example (ignore the chaos in the background - I'll explain later!):

Recipe: (All Papertrey Ink unless otherwise stated)
Stamps - On My Couch
Card - Kraft/New Leaf/Pure Poppy/Enchanted Evening
Ink - Memento Black/Fresh Snow

Other - Enchanted Evening Satin Ribbon/Circle Nestability/Vellum/£10 LOL!

Here's Kate's - using her all-time favourite and beloved Aqua Mist ;) (No surprises there then Kate LOL!)

Recipe: (All Papertrey Ink unless otherwise stated)
Stamps - In Bloom
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Card - Kraft/Vintage Cream
Ribbon - Vintage Cream
Other - Copic Markers/sewing machine/adhesive pearls/Martha Stewart border punch/corner rounder punch

Now here's the deets, the challenge ends at 9am BST on Monday 21st September. An entry will be randomly selected to win a selection of PTI Cardstock, Designer Paper and Ribbon (The prize can only be shipped within Europe - sorry!) To enter for a chance to win or just to share your creativity (entries worldwide are welcome for just fun!), simply leave a comment with a link to your entry via a blog post or online gallery. To qualify all entries must use at least one PTI product!

I can't wait to see all your favourite colours - how many more green fans are there out there?

That´s a great challenge and some wonderful cards. Hm, what color should I choose, I love them all? Maybe red, or pink? Well, I hope I can make a decision and come up with a card. But not in the next three or four days, please be patient. :)

Hugs, Tina

Emma said...

You ladies are never going to believe it but I have made my card. How spooky is that, I have just put the finishing touches on it my using my all time favourite colour (bet you can't guess what it is LOL!). I will put the link on soon when I have uploaded onto my blog.

Your works are dreamy of course and your couch card will go down in PTI legend AImes :D and Kate your aqua mist card is beautiful, with the clarity and detail I would expect from you :D

Have a great week both,

Big love,

Emma xx

Vicki said...

Well this week girls any theme would have been a perfect one, since we all just got our new goodies from Steph! (she's a star!)
I made this card for my friends birthday a few days ago and then I saw Kate's card and it made me laugh (I didn't copy, honest!)

Hope you like,
Vicki x

Mines here!

Daniela F. said...

What a great new challenge and such lovely cards from both of you! Now, there's a though decision to be made: What's my favorite of all the wonderful PTI colors?

Amy said...

I love New Leaf, too! I need to be better at using it, though... I tend to hoard the colors I like.

Aimes, your money-behind-the-cushion card is so clever! Kate, what an elegant card!

Antje said...

Hi there,
since some time I am following your blog and this is the first time, that I participate.

Now you deceide yourself, if I am allowed to participate... I live in Egypt, but because of the bad post situation here, I get all my goods delivered to my German adress and my family brings it over on their visits. So, somehow I am still German ;)

Tina Spohn said...

Blue and brown, this is one of my favourite color combos. I made a tag for a gift set and the buttons are PTI.

Here is the link:

Hugs, Tina

Linby said...

First chance to play now I have my goodies from Steph - oh loved every part of putting all my stamps in the little CD case etc.
Anyway here is my card

I did this card in Spring Rain and I am so in love with it I have it sitting on my bureau so I can look at it all the time! Something about kraft and that pale blue that is just so striking...... (and normally I do not go for light blue). Thanks for the inspiration! (from the USA)

Caryn said...

Hereis my card - I can share it now it's on my blog. There's no green I'm afraid Aimes but there is LOTS of pink!!

Vanessa said...

Hey ladies! Here is my entry for this challenge... wow, I managed to create this before the weekend!

Hugs to you!


Laurel Beard said...

It's me again. I love to play, even though I am not trying to "win" - I live in the USA. My colors always involve kraft and red.. I did a little birthday card for my nephew that is turning 3 tomorrow! He loves cars and I found this cute punch from Martha Stewart.. Hope you like it. All the ink is PAPERTREY INK, as are the sentiments!

Rose said...

This is a gorgeous card! I can't get enough of the In Bloom stamp set!

Daniela F. said...

Happy Sunday to you! I finally decided on a favorite colour, you can see the card here on my blog.
