Paper Players Challenge # 34 - Color Challenge

Hi Everyone.

Jaydee here, again. It is my pleasure to host the challenge this week. We have a great color challenge for you. Well, I think it's great... cos I chose the colors :-) I was in awe of what the design team came up with using this combo and can't wait to see what you all do!

Now, we know what a talented group of crafters you are, so we are really excited to see what you do with our challenge this week.

Don't forget, you can also add a different color if you need to. You can see that Ann added Early Espresso to her card for her focal image and Kerin highlighted her gorgeous bird with a darker color, they both then incorporated the other colors and, as you can see, they worked beautifully. We hope you have fun with it... experiment... we can't wait to see what you create.

Here are a couple of reminders for you:
  • Even though we use Stampin' Up! products, you are welcome to use whatever stamps you choose
  • Link your new creation - 3D, card or scrapbook page to our challenge site, and put a link to our challenge on your site
  • You have until Friday night at 11:59pm CST to link your new creation to our site
  • Each of the design team members will choose their pick for the week and winners will be displayed on Saturday
I thought it might be a good idea to remind you how our judging works.

Question 1: Why do you each choose a winner?Each of our design team members has a particular style preference. For example, I tend to be attracted to clean and simple or bold and elegant, whilst Ann has a strong preference for vintage. Having each of us choose a winner, allows us to showcase more styles and more cards and stops us favoring one particular style over the other.

Question 2: Do you confer with each other about your choices?
No. Our choices are individual and we don't know what each other has chosen until we load our own particular choice.

Question 3: Who chooses The Headliner for the week?The person who is hosting the challenge for the week gets to choose The Headliner. The rest of the design team get to choose a Cut Above. As I am hosting the challenge this week, it is my honor and privilege to choose the Headliner for this week.

Question 4: Why do you have guest designers?
Once again, the core design team has their own distinct styles. Inviting guest designers onto our team helps to keep the content fresh, as each new guest designer brings a different feel to our inspiration cards, and it gives us an opportunity to showcase some of the amazing work of our challenge players.

We really do have a tremendous team of designers and guest designers. We also have an amazingly talented group of people who play along with our challenges. You always make it very difficult for us to choose every week. I know that I go backwards and forwards every week before I make my choice.

We also love visiting each of your blogs and are very appreciative of the fact that you play along with us. Without you, there would be no challenge site!

Let's take a look at what our talented design team have for you this week.

LeAnne Pugliese - WeeInklings

Stephanie Uzee - Stampin'withSuzee

Kerin Sylvester - Stamps, Paper, Glitter!

Nance Leedy - Canopy Crafts

Remember, you have until Friday at 11.59 CST to link your creation to our challenge site.
