Happy Valentine's Day! --PP280

January 31, 2015

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

This week the multi talented Jaydee is our hostess.  She has a fabulous Tic-Tac-Toe board for us to play along with.  I must admit, this is probably my favorite type of challenge.  The projects are always creative and unique!  We can't wait to see what you design!

Now, you know I could never resist, Pink, Girly and Die Cuts. I have been saving this stamp for just the perfect challenge!  Well, this is IT!  My daughter in law was the feature twirler at Georgia Tech during her college days.  She was an amazing twirler, so I knew she would adore this card.  

I used a variety of Valentine papers I had in my stash for the background.  The heart journal die is from SugarPea Designs.  Melon Mambo card stock was used for the journal.  I cut a white circle from SugarPea Designs-Zig Zag Stitched Circles and sponged Melon Mambo ink around the edges.  The precious twirler is from Artistic Outpost-Cutie Pie stamp set.  I stamped her in Momento Black ink on Neenah Solor White card stock and colored her with Copic Markers. I fussy cut her and her puppy to add to my stitched circle. She is attached with dimensionals   I also stamped the twirler on the pink and white hearts paper and cut her jacket out and paper pieced it.  Lots of Wink of Stella was added to make her shine!  

The sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo ink and a  My Favorite Things-Fishtale Stax Die was used to cut the banner.  I added  a few of the Melon Mambo hearts from the journal die and covered them with Glossy Accents.  This card just makes me smile!  

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!
