PP225: Black Tie Theme Challenge from Nance

Hello, friends, Nance here!  This week, we have a very special challenge for you.  Special because it honors a wonderful group of Guest Designers who are sharing their last project with us today.  Andrea, Claire, Joanne, Laurie ,Yapha and Mike (who had to leave in October) are creative, hard-working and among our very best Guest Designers.  We are so sad to see them go but thank them for making our team better over the last six months; it's been a pleasure.
So what do you do when you've got a special occasion?  You make it FANCY, of course!  Our Black Tie Theme challenge calls for Holiday Projects that are Fancy.  What is fancy?  Sparkle!  Shine!  Texture!  It's a project with a little something extra.  You know...the one that requires a litle extra postage!  Just remember, if it's fancy to you, it's fancy to us!  So, let's see how the Design Team dressed up fancy!



With this busy time of year we want to give everyone time to play along so Challenge PP225 will run for two weeks--through Friday, December 19th.  Also, this will be our last challenge of 2014.  After this challenge, the Design Team will take a much needed break until January. So help us close out 2014 in style!

Challenge Rules:
  1. Create a NEW paper, or digital, project.
  2. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
  3. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
  4. Please link your card to no more than three challenges, TOTAL. Entries linked to more than 3 challenges, including ours, will be deleted without notification.
  5. Have fun!

PP224 Winners - Jaydee's Tic Tac Toe Challenge


Hi everyone!  Well, there was an amazing display of fabulous cards in the gallery this week and you made it very hard for us to choose our winners.  We are so grateful that you play along with us each week and it's great to see so many return players :-)

Before we get to the Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of our design team:





Rach 

I absolutely fell in love with the clean lines of Rach's card.  The touch of silver embossing and silver glimmer paper frame was stunning.  The pop of red over the green Season's Greetings was just the right touch.  This card is CAS perfection.  Congrats, Rach on being my Headliner this week.

We hope that you will join us for our final challenge this week - and it's a beauty.  It's also our last challenge with our fabulous guest designers.  We hope you help us close out the year in style.

Hi everyone!  What a wonderful panoply of cards you treated us with this week!  I truly enjoyed visiting each of your blogs to peruse your creations!  You make it more challenging each week to pick a winner!  But before we get to this week's Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of our Design Team:



And now LeAnne's choice for headliner:
Lisa J

Lisa's pretty little scene caught my eye right away, with its bright colors and simple images!  I love the snowy DSP, as well as the way she stamped the snowflakes on her cardbase! The twine and button continue the country feel of this card!  Well done, Lisa!  Congrats on being my Headliner this week!

Winners for Challenge #222: Ann's Clean and Simple Thank You Challenge

Our theme this past week was Clean and Simple: Thank You, and we must say all of you gave us something for which we are thankful...a gallery filled with fabulous cards. Our task of selecting our winners this week was definitely challenging.  Before we get to this week's Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of our Design Team:



And now Ann's choice for headliner:

Joyce
 
Joyce's leaves, so perfectly overlapped in an eye-pleasing arrangement, provided a delightful pop of color against the burlap textured white base. My eyes were drawn to the stacked inlay sentiment, which was stunning against the colorful leaves.  A beautiful example of a clean and simple card! Congratulations, Joyce, on being my choice for this week's Headliner!

We encourage all winners to proudly display their badges, available HERE!  Please join us tomorrow for a sketch challenge from the talented LeAnne!
