I Just Hugged You In My Thoughts! Paper Players Challenge PP565

Oct. 31, 2021

Wishing all of you a fun and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Don't eat too much candy!  LOL! 

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

The Amazing Ann is our hostess this week and she has a fabulous Tic Tac Toe Challenge for all of us!  SO many possibilities--we can't wait to see what you create! 

My card is created using the last column: die cuts, leaves/pumpkins/ embellishments

My card is created on a white card base.  I added an Early Expresso background on top of the card base.  The next layer is white. I added puffy clouds that I cut out with a cloud die and sponged around the cloud edges to create dimension.  The grass was cut with Garden Green paper using a grass die.  The little girl and all the leaves were stamped using a PI stamp set from MFT-- Jumping For Joy.  I colored her with Copic Markers and paper pieced all of her clothing items.  I used the matching die to cut her and all the leaves out.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I added three orange enamel dots to complete my card.

  1. Oh, Claire! This card warms my heart. The saying is SO sweet, and the little girl with her paper-pieced outfit is adorable. You can't beat leafy leggings! You did an amazing job with my challenge! Have a wonderful week!

  2. I just pulled out my MFT stamp set that is similar to this one where she is raking leaves in hopes to use it. You just gave me a great idea to perhaps paper piece mine as well! Awesome card and thanks for the inspiration. Have a great week!

  3. Oh, Claire how adorable is this little scene! That paper-pieced outfit is the bomb! This card just made me smile and took my back to my childhood. Mind you, I never had leggings that cool! Fabulous card, Claire.

  4. Such a sweet paper hug! I love the clouds and the paper pieced clothes; perfect for adding some fun fall patterns! Have a lovely week!

  5. This is adorable! Cutest little gal in a cute little scene! Your clouds and leaves are so realistic! But what I REALLY love is her leggings! SO stinkin' sweet!

  6. I love that sentiment and of course that darling image! So sweet!

  7. This little cutie chasing leaves is just adorable Claire! I particularly like her paper-pieced outfit - those leafy leggings are fab!

  8. This card made me smile, Claire. This adorable little one is having so much fun with the leaves. Beautifully done and a beautiful sentiment!
