God's Promises-PP #247

June 1, 2015

It's Sunday and time for another challenge at The Paper Players!  We sure enjoyed all of your fabulous creations last week using our sketch!

This week it is time for a FUN BINGO challenge!  This week the lovely Laurie is our hostess!  I always love Bingo week.  It allows your imagination to run wild with ideas for your projects!   Have fun!

I decided to play the bottom row this week.  (A die cut, patterned paper and yellow)  

While looking through stamps that I never use, I found this fabulous stamp set by Verve Stamps--Shining Star.  I love this sentiment and decided to make it the focal point on my card.  I love how bright and cheery the yellow looks!  Yellow is a color that I don't use often, but I am a big fan of Crushed Curry.  It has always been my favorite shade of yellow .  Add a little pop of red and I am happy! 

I cut a white circle with my stitched dies and then stamped the sentiment with Versa Fine Black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  

My base card is Crushed Curry (5 1/2 X 4 1/4).  I made two white scalloped edges using my My Favorite Things -Blueprints #14.  I adhered them on a panel made from the new Stampin' Up "Cherry on Top" Designer Series Paper stack. This paper pack will be available this week on my Stampin' Up! Site!   I  embossed the panel using the perfect polka dots embossing folder.  The panel was adhered on the base card and  I added 3 red stars cut with my star dies and added sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
