PP669 Challenge Winners

Happy Saturday.
Huge shout out to all of you who played along with our Christmas themed challenge this week.  What a gorgeous gallery.  It was such a pleasure visiting each of your creations and you really did make it hard for us to choose our winners this week.

Before we get to our HEADLINER for this week, let's check in to see what caught the eye of the design team:

And now for my Headliner:

Mila



 Milla's adorable little elf all caught up in his lights just made me smile the first time I saw him.  The image is beautifully colored and the whole design is a one layer wonder.  I loved the way Milla popped the little elf outside of the frame and the green background with the mixture of green and blue snowflakes was perfectly done.  Gorgeous card.   Congratulations, Milla, you are our HEADLINER for this week.                           

Again, thank you to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners! Please be sure to pick up your badges here. We hope you will display them proudly.  Come back tomorrow for our last challenge of 2023 and it's a fun Color Challenge from Claire!

And now for my Headliner:



                                  
Su Mohr

The wonderful thing about a sketch is that it provides a starting point and a foundation for a card. It serves as an inspiration while being open to adding your own spin. I LOVED the way that Su seamlessly incorporated the freesia diagonal into her design. The embossing added yummy texture, while popping the elements up on dimensionals added depth. But what truly captured my heart was the gorgeous designer paper panel with the bluebird. It is a breath of Spring. Congratulations, Su, and being my Headliner this week!

Again, thank you to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners! Please be sure to pick up your badges here. We hope you will display them proudly.  Come back tomorrow for a seasonal Theme Challenge from Jaydee!

PP668 - A Sketch Challenge from Ann

Hey, Stampers- it's Ann! Thank you to everyone who played along with LeAnne's Clean and Simple challenge last week.  There were so many great tags and tag cards in our gallery! This week I have a fun and versatile sketch for you. It's perfect for showing off your favorite paper, embossed backgrounds, stenciling and more.  The large rectangle in the center could be used to highlight a favorite image or a bold sentiment.  We can't wait to see what you create! But before you head off to gather your stamps, papers, and inks, let's take a look at what the Design Team has created for your inspiration:

And now for my Headliner:

Jan Clothier

         

 I loved Jan's use of the Christmas greenery that accented her tag, and the second gingham tag peeking out from behind added a bright bit of color against the beautifully-embossed background! The gold embossing and twine added a bit of glitz that made this tag a stunner!  Congratulations, Jan, you're my Headliner this week!     
               
Again, thank you to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners! Please be sure to pick up your badges here. We hope you will display them proudly.  Come back tomorrow for an awesome Sketch Challenge from Ann!

PP666 Challenge Winners

Hello everyone - Joanne here! I have loved visiting your blogs this week to get an up-close glimpse of your fabulous, festive creations. Before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team this week:

And now for my Headliner:


Colleen Begley - Colleen's Creative Corner
                                  
There were so many wonderful cards in the gallery this week and many of you balance my trio of festive colours with white beautifully. Colleen's card caught my eye because it is a wall-to-wall pop of colour. Not only is there not a single neutral, but Colleen's fourth choice of bright blue makes an impact in its own right, whilst still allowing the other colours to shine. And who can resist that shiny, sparkly over-the-top bow?! Not me, for sure! Congratulations Colleen on being my Headliner this week!

Again, thank you to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners! Please be sure to pick up your badges here. We hope you will display them proudly.  Come back tomorrow for a fun Clean-and-Simple Challenge from LeAnne!
