You Are A Gift Paper Players Challenge PP510

 Sept. 27, 2020

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

The amazing Joanne is our hostess and she has a beautiful sketch for all of us.  WOW!  This one is so versatile and the possibilities are endless.  I love all the layers!  




I choose a brick paper to add for the background on my card.  I found a piece of floral fall paper to use for the large rectangle.  I added purple gingham for the vertical banner and a small piece of wood grained paper for the square.  I love all these patterns together.  I used a strip of music paper and a wood strip for the sentiment.  The sunflower is stamped using the Stampin Up Painted Harvest stamp set.  I used Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Blackberry Bliss inks for the sunflower.  The sentiment is stamped in black.  I added some Wink of Stella on the Sunflower for shine.

Home for the Holidays Keeping Christmas

 Sept. 25, 2020

It's time for this month's installment of the Keeping Christmas Inspiration Blog Hop!  The Challenge Design Team is sharing Christmas creations on the 25th of each month!


The whole idea is to have some Christmas cards and projects in your stash ready to go for December 2020!

My card is created on a white card base.  I added a black layer heat embossed with white powder after stamping the new MFT City Block Background with Versa Mark ink.  I love the way this turned out.  The snowdrifts are created using a die.  The red cardinal is created using the MFT Holly Jolly Cardinal Die.  I will admit it was time consuming to add all the small details, but it is so worth the end result.  The sentiment is stamped in black.
