You Get Better With Age Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC329

February 17, 2024


It's time for a new challenge at 
Sunday Stamps

Look at this amazing color combo we have for you! Don't forget to use a minimum of three colors!   We can't wait to see what you create! 




My card is created on a white card base.  I found this cool print in my stash for the background.  I loved the masculine/Native American feel of this pattern.  I stamped the whiskey glass and sentiment using the stamp set by Unity called If You Were Whiskey.  I used Copic Markers to color the whiskey and shade the ice cubes.  The panel was cut using a whacky die.  I sponged an antique distress ink around the edges.  I also added a matching pattern behind the panel for more contrast.  I loved the way this turned out.

Your Friend Always The Paper Players Challenge PP677

 February 17, 2024

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

The lovely Ann  is our hostess this week and she has a very fun Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us!  "Forever Friends" is the theme.  It is always great to have a friend card in your stash.  Remember to keep it CAS.  Have fun and get creative! 

CAS 
Have minimal layers and embellishments
Have plenty of open space
Are simple and uncluttered




I covered the cover of my white card base with a pink and white striped paper I found in my stash.  I used an embossing folder on a white panel that I cut with a postage die.  The pen is created using The Greetery Inked Well Die Set.  I cut the nib and little pieces with gold foil.  I used a floral pattern for the pen base.  The sentiment is from The Greetery Sign Off Sentiment Stamp Set.  The matching  Dies were used to cut out the sentiment.  I did not add any embellishments to keep it CAS.  That is always hard for me!  I love the way this turned out.

Sending Love on Valentine's Day! The Papers Players PP 676

Fe. 11, 2024

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.  
The lovely LeAnne  is our hostess this week and she has a very pretty Color Challenge for all of us!  These colors make a beautiful card and we can't wait to see what you create.  Have FUN! 




The background is Berry Burst.  I added a Smokey Slate panel cut with a scalloped die next.  The other items on this card are all from The Greetery's latest release.  The LOVE letters were die cut in Bubble Bath using the Flourished Phrases Love Die.  The sentiment is stamped in black using Flourished Phrases Love Additons Stamp Set.  I added Berry Burst flourishes using the Flourished Phrases Love Stencil.  The pen was created using the Inked Well Stamp Set and matching Dies with Berry Burst and Bubble Bath card stock.  I cut a few Berry Blast Glimmer hearts with a die to add some shine.  This card had a lot of steps, but I think it was worth the effort.  I love this color combo!
