Guide Us To The Perfect Light Paper Players 471

Dec. 8, 2019

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

Before I get to this week's challenge I would like to say "THANK YOU" to our fantastic Guest Designers:  Wanda, Su and Windy, you have been AMAZING to work with!  I adore all of your beautiful creations each week!  Please continue to play along with us!  

The lovely LeAnne is our hostess this week and she has a gorgeous color challenge for all of us!  Seaside Spray and Crumb Cake plus Silver or Gold.  I know there will be so many wonderful creations in our gallery with this fabulous combo.  

I couldn't decide if I wanted to use gold or silver with the Seaside Spray and Crumb Cake so, I made one of each.  My card background is Seaside Spray.  I added a piece of gold/ silver glimmer paper for the next layer.  Then I added another layer of S.S. I heat embossed the design in silver/gold embossing powder from the retired Stampin' Up! Star of Light stamp set. The matching thinlits were used to cut the star in three different layers.  I used Crumb Cake and the silver/gold glimmer paper to make the large stars.  I embossed the sentiment and it is from the same stamp set.  I added rhinestones on the silver one and gold sequins on the gold one.  Do you have a favorite?  My photos don't do them justice.  (It is hard to get photos of glimmer paper) SORRY!

  1. I thought I was Team Silver all the way with this color combo, however the gold really pops on your card. Both of them are gorgeous and even more sparkly in-person, I'm sure. Fabulous projects, as always, my friend. Have a fabulous day! Hugs!

  2. Your stars are beautiful,and the swoosh is wonderful, Claire! And, you did a great job photographing the sparkle! If I had to choose a favorite, I'd pick silver.

  3. Be still my heart! These are both gorgeous, and I LOVE all the glimmer and sparkle and shine. Beautifully done!

  4. So very elegant! Love that gorgeous star!!

  5. Gorgeous stars, both of them are stunning, although I am partial to the silver! And thank you for your stunning Christmas card I received today! I keep taking it out and looking at it over and over again! Thanks for making my colors look fabulous this week!

  6. Love the star and all the glimmer/glitter! Beautiful card! Thank you for all the inspiration and I loved being on the design team with you this year. Merry Christmas!!!

  7. Beautiful, Claire! Both are stunning, but there is something about the silver sparkle that takes my breath away...Have a wonderful Christmas, my friend!

  8. Your star makes such a fabulous focal point and is gorgeous in both silver and gold! I want to thank you for the warm reception and so many gracious comments while I guested with your team this past year! It was great getting to know you ladies a bit better and will say you all are the best! Wishing you a very happy and blessed Christmas!

  9. Love that starry focal point Claire! I thought I would prefer the silver one, but actually the gold has it - so pretty it really sparkles and shines!

  10. Claire, I love them both... but the silver takes my vote. But... I do love the gold one, too! Tough to decide when the focal point is so fabulous. Have a wonderful week, my friend
