Welcome everyone to the December 2012 Papertrey Blog Hop!  We are so thrilled to see you here!  First, the challenge…

The color white evokes a feeling of clean crispness that can't be replicated with any other color.  With winter and snow upon us, there couldn't be a more perfect time to embrace this beautiful color and the blank canvas it creates.  With color taken out of the creative equation, there is no limit to what you can do.  Your challenge is to create a white-on-white card.  While you can add small pops of color or touches of neutrals, the main focus of your project should be the color white.  Layer die-cuts, mix textures created with impression plates, combine multiple ribbon styles, dazzle with rhinestones & pearls, think white heat-embossed patterns and so much more.  Let your creativity take the lead as you create your white masterpiece!

I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project.  This type of link list will allow you to select a thumbnail to go along with your link, making it easy to go back and find a project later that might have perked your interest.  

You have until 11:30pm EST tonight (December 26th) to add your link to this list.  THREE random participants will be selected to win a $25 PTI Gift Certificate to spend however they choose.  They will be announced and highlighted here, on my blog, tomorrow morning.  We look forward to seeing all of your creations!



Andrea Smith used layered vellum snowflakes to mat a patterned die-cut heart for the focal point of her beautiful project.  One of my favorite things about this card is the way she tied the twine at the same angle she adhered the sentiment strip.  That detail really helps to carry the eye across the project!

Jean created a stunning layered snowflake as well with lots of sparkle.  The Signature Christmas sentiment added to the center has just the right amount of style to really bring the card to the next level.

 Tracey Kuzniak used subtle neutrals and white to create this stylish card.  I just love how she paired up all of the different flower dies, layering textures such as felt to create a cozy feeling.  The layout is just wonderful too!

Congratulations to the three winners!  Please be sure to contact Customer Service and provide them with the email address you would like your $25 gift certificate sent too.  And a big, BIG thank you to everyone else that played along.  The amount of inspiration shared this month is truly awesome!
