October 12, 2014

WOW!  Another week has flown by and it is time for the Paper Players Challenge!  Ann is the hostess this week and she has a trio of Fall hues for us!

Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow and Tangelo Twist are the colors for the challenge this week!  We can't wait to see all your wonderful creations!  Please stop by each Design Team Members' Blogs to see their wonderful projects!

The first thing I did to make this card was take a piece of watercolor paper (5" X 4") and use Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist inks with my aqua painter to make a watercolored background for my card. After it was dry, I decided to take my oval punch and make 5 ovals from this watercolored piece to create a pumpkin.  I wanted the pumpkin to be the focal point of my card, so I did not stamp a sentiment on the front of my card.  I made a Joy-Fold Card today and you can find directions for this card on Splitcoaststampers-here.  I did not use anything to close my card so, it was hard to photograph.  

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  I have had a very busy week.  My mother has been here for a week and I also kept three of my grands this week. I am filled with wonderful memories, but I must admit, I am tired.  

Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I always love to hear from you!

If you have any questions on my card, please contact me at: Claire.

I would love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  Let me know if I can help you in any way!

One of the highlights of the week was attending the Disney Frozen on Ice Show in Atlanta yesterday with Miss Addison (Elsa) and Miss Victoria (Anna), I just couldn't resist sharing a few pictures with all of you!

Happy Stampin'!
