The Only Elements Yo Need--PP #282

February 14, 2016

Happy Valentine's Day!

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

The lovely Laurie is our hostess and she has a beautiful color combo for us to play along with.  She lives in snowy ND and I know she must have her mind on warmer days with these colors.  :)))  We can't wait to see what you create!  

My base card is white.  The next layer is Pool Party.  The Tangerine Tango DSP is from a retired paper pack from Stampin' Up! -Flowerpot.  I used two other retired SU -DSP's for the other two patterns.  I mounted them on Pool Party card stock, too.  The coffee cup, glasses and sentiment are from the Your Next Stamp-Java Geek Stamp Set.  I used black Momento ink to stamp the paper pieces for the cup and fussy cut them to make the colorful cup.  The glasses are stamped in black ink and covered with Glossy Accents to make them look real. Your Next Stamp-Java Geek Dies were used to cut out the glasses and coffee cup.  

 I added a few Pool Party diamond shapes that I found on my table top from another project and added Tangerine Tango candy dots for fun.  I was having a hard time with these colors, but was happy at the way this turned out.  It made me smile!

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