My card is created on a black card base.  I used Crumb Cake card stock for the next layer and cut it with a rectangle stitched die.  I added a striped piece of DSP for the rectangle strip.  I cut a white circle and stamped the dandelion from Technique Tuesday in light gray ink.  I added So Saffron ink using a stencil on the Crumb Cake.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and i stamped it in black Memento ink.

Prayers and Love PP401

June 15, 2018

It’s Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

A huge thank you to everyone that played in our 400th challenge!  All of your kind words and comments made us feel so special!  The gallery was amazing!  We are very thankful for your support each week!

The amazing Joanne-from across the pond is our hostess this week.  I absolutely LOVE this color combo.  Although my first thought was flowers, I am excited to see what you create!  Use your imagination!  




I created a card and a wine tag this week.  I was going to a party and needed a tag for my hostess gift and then I loved it so much I made a card for someone special!  


The stamped set is Hello Lovely from Concord and 9th.  On both projects, I stamped the image with Versa Fine ink and heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder.  I colored the image with Zig Clean Water Brushes and an aqua painter.  Wink of Stella was added to the flowers.  



The prayers sentiment was cut using the Hero Arts Prayers stamp and die set.  The Cheers was cut using gold glitter paper and black card stock.  I added a few gold sequins on my card.

I am also entering my card in the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.  I love this fun stamp set, but I also love all the bright colors!  



My card is for my Grandson Robert's birthday!  He loves cars and I thought this was a perfect way to show him some love!  I created this fun box card with lots of cars to celebrate his 4th birthday! 




This card was created using a new color by Stampin' Up!  Blueberry Bushel.  I used the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card dies to create the box.  



These fun stamps are from Craftin Desert Divas Classic Cars.  I stamped each car, the flags, gas pump and stop lights with Memento black ink.  I colored them with Copic Markers.  It took a while, but it was worth the time.  I love these little cars!  They make me smile!  


The Happy Birthday stamp is from Simon Says Stamp Big Birthday Wishes.  Wink of Stella was added for shine!
