Sunny Days Ahead Paper Players PP478

Feb. 15, 2020

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at ThPaper Players!

The incredibly talented Jaydee is our hostess this week and she has a FUN Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us.  Any one that reads Jaydee's blog enjoys all the fabulous visitors she has in her yard each week.  She is a nature lover and the wonderful friends that visit her home are mesmerizing.  She captures fabulous photos and I look forward to viewing them every Sunday.

I must admit, I am ready for Spring.  I am not a fan of winter, so warm weather, longer days and outside activities makes me happy!  In Atlanta, I see Redbud trees blooming and tulips popping up.  I am afraid it is a little early, but we will hope for the best.   I decided to make a little fox holding his "Sunny Days Ahead" sign.  I cut a floral piece of patterned paper with a scalloped die for my simple background.  The fox is created using Lawn Fawn Woodland Critter Hugger Dies.  I used a variety of paper scraps and the dies to create this colorful fox.  The sentiment is from an old Simon Says Stamp set I found in my stash.

Be Mine Tic Tac Toe Challenge #tttc051

Feb. 13, 2020

I am so happy to announce that the Tic Tac Toe Challenge is back up and running!  This is the second week and we couldn't be more thrilled to host this amazing challenge!  I am on Team O and here is the board for this week.  Laurie is our hostess this week and she included a lot of fabulous February ideas for your projects! 

I used the left column to create my card.  (Hearts, Polka Dots and Red)

I used a white card base and added a polka dot panel.  Then I cut a red rectangle and and turquoise layer with a die from my stash.  I added a heart panel and then a red and white oval.  The little girl is from MFT-Pure Innocence Blowing Kisses stamp set.  I colored her with Copic Markers and paper pieced her dress.  I added a little red heart in her hands.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I cut a speech bubble shape for the MWAH!   The Be Mine banner is made using a die from MFT.  I cut it out in red and then again in pink to get the letters to piece in the banner.  I added white Baker's twine across the top.  

Please stop by and see all the fabulous cards by the Design Team.  There is so much inspiration!

We hope you will play along with us this week!

Sending You Love Inspired By Challenge 111

Feb. 13, 2020

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge at Inspired By

How can you not love this gorgeous patchwork?

What inspires you about this photo? Is it the patchwork, the color combo, the lantern, the patterns, the squares?  We can't wait to see what you create! 

My card is created using my favorite color combo-Real Red and Tempting Turquoise.  I started with a turquoise card base and added a red panel trimmed with a stitched rectangle die.  I cut a white panel using a stitched die, too.  The quilt pieces were made using the MFT Blueprints #20 dies.  I made a frame with the turquoise and then cut the die in white and removed the white squares and embossed them with a folder.  Then I cut the die again with red and white polka dots to get the geometric shapes for the centers.  I added a sentiment stamped in red.  This card is for my Sweet Mommy that used to sew all the time.  I sent it to her for Valentine's.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Check out all the inspiration from the Design Team.  We sure hope you will play along with us this week!
