“When thinking of my favorite Papertrey Ink stamp set, I knew it had to be a floral one!  I mean, Papertrey floral sets are the best!  Narrowing that down, however, was a lot more difficult!  Ha!  This definitely changes weekly, but for now my favorite is Peonies on Parade!  Outline flowers that are detailed and easy to color, several different flower and leaf sizes included, and has a matching die set…what’s not to love?!!”

Supplies:

  • STAMPS:  Peonies on Parade, Banner Style
  • INK:  Versamark
  • PAPER:  Stamper’s Select White, True Black
  • DIES:  Peonies on Parade, Banner Style, Shape Shifters: Oval 1
  • OTHER:  Clear detail embossing powder, Sequins, Watercolor paint, Glitter

    Beautiful, Laurie! I love it when a few stamps can fill up a card front and then use a sentiment for completion. I’m a sucker for black and stripes. And glitter? Can’t keep my hands off of it! Big win today!

    I hope you’re continuing with 1 entry per person, but I don’t see it spelled out here. Exciting to have a chance at a $100 gc–thank you! I’m thinking Laurie’s challenge is for us to make something with our own favorite PTI products, right? Just like she said–it’s constantly changing with plenty to choose from around here!

    Question 1: Melissa used the following patterned papers for the “hugs” card: Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush, and Bitty Big Spring Moss
    Question 2: Melissa used the “Circle of Love” stamp set for the “Happily Ever After” sentiment on the second card.

      FYI, Kelsey under the Monday’s with Melissa section there is a dark blue circle and banner image that says, “Enter Contest Here” If you click that image it takes you to a form where you can answer the questions and be entered in the contest. Didn’t want you missing out!

    For the IG contest, is there a # that should be used? I cannot enter the contest, but like to see projects that others have entered. It would help to have a hashtag to search. Thank you.

    PS – I wish I posted on IG because I’m currently in mass production mode using Cover Plate: Hearts. But that’s my issue, not yours. 😉

    Okay, I have to start off by saying I must be the only technically challenged person here on the “new” Win It Wednesday, I tried it , but haveno clue if I entered the Instagram Contest right, wrong or ‘other’ …
    Anyway, the question contests are fine, I just really prefer challenges where I can make a card/project and post it from my Blog ~ but that’s probably just me!! 😮

      Greta H says:

      I agree with you, Helen, but I understand I’m part of the older generation so probably in the minority. Just glad there’s still at least one cardmaking challenge each week. Not sure about Transformation Tuesday as I don’t see it in the WIW post today.

    Beautiful card Laurie!! Love your choice of flowers and perfect coloring. The bold black and white background really makes those flowers pop! I have to say that this is the most confusing contest, so many things to do in order to win. My answers to the questions about Melissa’s cards are 1. Bitty Big Spring Moss & 2. Circle of love, heat embossing.

    Just before your whole design team switch/re-vamp, there were several daily giveaways lined up with the biggest prize being $150 (if I remember correctly). No winners were ever mentioned or announced. Were they done away with?? Just curious especially since I (and many others) entered. Thanks. =)

    When I go to save the picture it says failed due to copyright laws. Anyone else having trouble posting the picture to instagram? What am I missing?

      D.Ann C says:

      Annette, you can get a repost app and repost it from Instagram, or you can take a screen shot and then post it (when I do that I always note that it’s a reposted pic and credit the source).

    How fun! I’m hoping to get back into participating this year!!

    Adele Holcomb says:

    The new Challenge page is fun and I managed to enter all 3 this time. I will say, however, that using Instagram is a real challenge in itself and I’m not a fan. I tinkered with it all day before I figured out how to post both the challenge picture and my entry in one post. I’ve had an Instagram account for a while to look at other works, but have never tried to post. Who knew that you can’t post from your computer? I really hate posting from my phone, but it was good to at least understand how it works. Looking forward to the next Wednesday challenges!

      I feel the same way about IG! Finally started posting mostly PTI cards, as I know it’s easier for companies to use than checking out our blogs. However, it will never replace blogging for me. I did finally discover that you can download IG onto your laptop & edit your posts as well as like & comment on posts. Much easier than using a phone & you can actually see the project! I’ve been surprised at what a card really looks like when I pull it up on my laptop.

    Is there a place to see all the entries? And will the winners be posted separately, on this post, or on next Wednesday’s post?

    Maybe we are still waiting to see the winners? I’m wearing out my refresh button. As patiently as possible, of course!

  • 19

    I suppose since it said after 6am it could technically be anytime after that time and it could be like the blog hop where it took days for a winner to be chosen. I too have been checking periodically and it would certainly be nice to know. We can to nothing except be patient and wait.
