A few Papertrey Princess Challenge Cards

Since I joined the Papertrey Princess challenge group over on the PTI forum a couple of months ago, I have been trying to catch up on all the old challenges. I'm almost there and have nearly caught up with them all. I managed to do a few more today and as always combined them with other challenges.

My first one is for Bethie J's challenge to use something new. Well my PTI parcel arrived yesterday with 5 lovely new stamp sets in, including the beautiful Mat Stack 2 Collection. I just had to make one of these dainty doilies that Maile Belles came up with. Her card using this doily was what really sold me the set! This one is also for A Passion for Papertrey's Out of Your Comfort Zone challenge. I am never happy doing one layer or CAS cards so this fits both of those. I always need to add more - hence the button and pearls!  And it is for Just Add Ink's #51 Monochrome challenge and Papertake Weekly's Cold and Frosty Morning challenge which was to use icy colours - I think these ones fit.


Recipe:

Stamps: Mat Stack 2 Collection from PTI

Papers: Sweet Blush from PTI

Inks: Hibiscus Burst from PTI, Whisper White from SU

Accessories: Hibiscus Burst button from PTI, Baker's Twine from The Ribbon Reel, Pearls from Papermania

My next card is for Mariah's Go Vertical challenge, in which we had to put the sentiment on vertically. This is another new set that arrived yesterday - Make A Wish Additions. I didn't get the dies to go with this set though as I thought it would be easy enough to cut round the presents and it is! Saved me some pennies for my next order! This set is fab for making birthday present background papers!


Recipe:

Stamps: Make A Wish Additions, Fillable Frames #10 both from PTI

Papers: Real Red, Daffodil Delight both from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI

Inks: Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point all from SU

Accessories: Fillable Frames #10 die from PTI, Pacific Point ribbon (retired) from SU

And my final Papertrey Princess challenge card for today is for Belinda's Tag, You're It challenge to make a tag, for Color Throwdown's #124 to use Melon Mambo (I subbed with Raspberry Fizz), Early Espresso and Soft Sky (which I subbed with Spring Rain) and for Viva La Verve sketch #3 for January. I'm not overly happy with this one - it's missing something, but not sure what...


Recipe:

Stamps: Make A Wish, Polka Dot Basics II both from PTI

Papers: Raspberry Fizz, Spring Rain, Stampers Select White all from PTI, Early Espresso from SU

Inks: Raspberry Fizz from PTI, Early Espresso, Bashful Blue from SU

Accessories: Raspberry Fizz polka dot ribbon from PTI, Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon from SU, Metallic Pink Dew Drops, Corner Rounder Punch

And that's all for today folks. Thanks for stopping by!
