I Hear the Most Amazing People are Born in April Paper Players Challenge PP537 Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC255

 April 18, 2021

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

The Lovely Laurie is the hostess at  The Paper Players  this week.  She has a fabulous CAS challenge for all of us!  The theme is "birthdays"!

The Sunday Stamps Challenge is a beautiful color palette.  These colors are so pretty!  

Have fun and get creative with your projects! 

My card is created on a white card base.  I added an extra layer of white so I could cut the flowers on the top panel and use the negative space for the color on the flowers.  I used two shades of blue and yellow and added yellow centers to all the flowers.  I stamped the stems with a fun stamp I found in my stash using green ink.  The sentiment is stamped using a stamp from Concord and 9th.

Let's Chill Tic Tac Toe Challenge #tttc109

 April 15, 2021

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

We hope you will play along with our new board! 

My card is created using the last row: Blue, Polka Dots, Cute Critter.

My card is created on a white card base.  I added a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock trimmed with a scalloped die.  Then I cut a rectangle of polka dots.  The starburst is cut with a die and I distressed the background to look like sundown at the beach.  The little elephant is from Neat N Tangled Beach Day Stamps. I colored him with Copic Markers and cut him out with the matching dies.  I added Wink of Stella for shine.  The sentiment is from the MFT penguin set, Penguin Chill.  I think both of the sets I used today are retired now.

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!

CHEERS Paper Players Challenge PP536

 April 10, 2021

It is Sunday and you know what that means!  It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The lovely LeAnne is our hostess this week and she has a beautiful color challenge for all of us!  We can't wait to see all of your amazing projects!  

When I saw this color palette, I knew just what I wanted to do! I wanted to use my MFT Wine Glass Shaker Die because I instantly thought of red wine when I saw the Merry Merlot color.  My card is created on a white card base.  I added a layer of Crumb Cake that I embossed with a folder I found in my stash.  I cut the wine glasses using the die from Misty Moonlight card stock.  I used the Merry Merlot ink and smeared a little on some watercolor paper.  I then sprayed it with water and let it run so it looked like wine in a glass.  I cut the wine section with the die and paper pieced it in the glass.  I added lots of glossy accents on the wine section and Wink of Stella on the Misty Moonlight glass.  The "CHEERS" was cut with a die I found in my stash.  After letting the glossy accents dry for 24 hours, I went outside to get a picture.  Wouldn't you know, a gush of wind came and blew my card in the swimming pool!!!  I was so upset.  All that work and watching it float in the water.  I got the net and rescued it.  Then after it dried, I decided to try to salvage it.  I added a new card base and I was pretty pleased with it.  I know it has some imperfections from the water, but it didn't look that bad.  I didn't have time to make another card because three of my grand children are here for the week.  I finally got it dry and ready to go again.  I went out in the sprinkles and it got raindrops on it.  You can see them in the picture.  I think maybe this card was snake bit.  Oh well, it is the best I could do for this week.  I hope y'all have better luck than I did!
