I Just Love You! Paper Players Challenge PP525 Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC249

 Jan. 24, 2021

It's Sunday and time for new challenges at The Paper Players and Sunday Stamps 

The amazing Joanne is the hostess at The Paper Players and she has a very fun sketch challenge for all of us!  The sketch is a simple one, but feel free to interpret the shapes any way you choose!  Oh, I just think that makes it so much fun! 

The Sunday Stamps Color Challenge is fabulous and it paired perfectly with the card I wanted to create!   I love this great color combo!  
 
Have fun and get creative with your projects! 

                                                                                Use a Minimum of 3 colors


My card is created on a Basic Gray background.  I added a Cherry Cobbler layer and cut it with a scalloped die.  The Very Vanilla panel was embossed with an embossing folder.  It reminded me of a warm winter sweater or scarf.  The little snowman was stamped using the Honey Bee Stamps Snow Buddies.  I just love this set and I see it is retiring.  That makes me sad because I just adore this stamp set.  I colored him with Copic Markers and added ear muffs and a scarf using the same stamp set and matching dies.  The sentiment is stamped in black.

Hey Sunshine! Tic Tac Toe Challenge #tttc097

Jan. 21, 2021


It's time for a new challenge at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge!

We hope you will play along with our new board! 



I used the top row to complete my card:  Flowers, Twine/Ribbon, Pink


My card is created on a white card base.  I added a hot pink layer cut with a scalloped die from Sugar Pea Designs.  I stamped the background using the  Sunflower Background by Simon Says Stamp.  I used black ink.  I added a twine bow and stamped the sentiment in black ink.  The sentiment is from a retired MFT Pure Innocence stamp set.  



Please stop by and see all the fabulous cards by the Design Team.  There is so much inspiration!

We hope you will play along with us this week!

Sending a Flurry of Love Paper Players Challenge PP524

 Jan. 17, 2021

It's Sunday and you know what that means!

It is time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

I am the hostess this week and I have a fun CAS challenge for all of you!  The theme is "SNOW"!  We don't see much snow in Atlanta, so show me what you've got and I will dream about a snowy day!



CLEAN AND SIMPLE WEEK
MINIMAL LAYERS
LITTLE TO NO EMBELLISHMENTS

LOTS OF CLEAN WHITE SPACE (NO PATTERN)

Y'all know that CAS is difficult for me.  I love my layers and bling, so I reined it in and did my best.  I used this image a few weeks ago, but I just love this little girl.  She reminds me of growing up in Indiana where we had a lot of snow!!!!!  My card base is white and I used a scalloped die to cut another white layer.  I stamped this cutie using the MFT BB Best Wishes stamp set.  I colored her with Copic Markers.  I distressed the background and scalloped edge with "Salty Ocean" and stamped the snowflakes using a stamp from the set using the same distress ink.  I added Wink of Stella on her coat and hat for shine!  The sentiment is stamped in black using a stamp from the same set. 


  1. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
  2. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
  3. Please link your card to no more than four challenges, TOTAL, including ours
