You're An Oldie But Goodie! PP 429

February 17, 2019

It's Sunday and you know what that means!  It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! 

The Lovely LeAnne is our hostess this week and she has a wonderful Clean And Simple Monochromatic challenge for all of us.  We can't wait to see what you create!

Ok, y'all know that CAS is very difficult for me.  I know this isn't white space, but it is a neutral and I hope LeAnne will consider my card Clean and Simple.  I wanted a fun card for my BIL and I just purchased this fabulous die set from MFT.  It is called Turntable Die-namics. I added a wood grained background and then I cut all the pieces from different shades of brown/kraft card stocks.  I added a brad on the turntable and the needle.  The turntable actually turns!   

The sentiments are from the MFT For The Record
stamp set.  I added two more dials inside for fun and lined the envelope panel with the wood grained paper.  I hope this brings back some good memories to all of you that collected albums.  I still have mine, by the way!  They are making a comeback.  ENJOY!

Hello-----Sketch Saturday #551

February 16, 2019

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Saturday!
We have a great sponsor this week:

The Paper Nest Dolls has lots of fantastic stamps, digis and more! Here is their blog.

The Paper Nest Dolls has generously offered digital stamps of the winner's choice.

Here is Sketch #551

My card is created on a Real Red card base.  I used a Scalloped Border Die from Pretty Pink Posh to separate the white and black/ white polka dots to create the border in the sketch.   All of the flowers and stems are created using Real Red, Yellow and Old Olive card stock and the My Favorite Things Stitched Blooms dies.

The sentiment on the front and inside are from the stamp set Cas-ual Friday Stamps-Special Delivery. 
I am trying to finish the inside of my cards and make a matching envelope.  That way they are almost ready for the mail.
Thank you for stopping by my blog!  Don't forget to visit all the DT blogs for lots of inspiration!  We sure hope you will play along with us!

My card is created on a purple card base.  I used a piece of water color paper and smooshed the background using distress inks.  I found a scrap of floral paper in my stash for the rectangle.  The hearts were cut using the Cherry Lynn Two of Hearts  die set.  I cut the larger heart in purple and the top heart in white.  I added two small candy hearts in pink and purple using the Sweetheart Candy die set.  

White Baker's twine was added around the card and a small bow. A few clear, sparkling sequins were added to complete my card.  I also added a sentiment inside and two more of the sweetheart candy hearts.  I added the floral print on the envelope panel that matched the front of the card.
