It's Sunday and you know what that means! It is time for another challenge at The Paper Players! This week the "Sensational Sandy" is our hostess! She wants us to use Real Red, Pool Party and Island Indigo. I love this combo! We can't wait to see what you create!
A big thank you to all of you that played along with Joanne's masculine card challenge last week! We were blown away by all the amazing entires!
It is already very hot in Georgia! Today's high was 95 and HUMID! So, I thought it was the perfect time to use my new stamp by C.C. Designs. (Swiss Pixie Beach Ball Birgitta Rubber Stamp). I colored her with Copic Markers and added Glossy Accents to her glasses for shine. I fussy cut her and then set her aside while I worked on my card.
My base card is Whisper White. (5 1/2 X 4 1/4). The next layer is Pool Party cut with my rectangle stitched dies. The next layer is cut with the next smaller size rectangle stitched die. It is a piece of Real Red from "Fresh Prints" a retired Stampin' Up! paper pack. I added a smaller rectangle cut from Island Indigo and cut two borders in Pool Party using a Verve-Scallopped Trim Trio Set. The Whisper White circle was cut with my circle stitched dies. I trimmed off one side of the circle to be even with the bottom layer. I stamped the sentiment "Keep Cool" using the Lawn Fawn-Swimsuit Season stamp set in Versa Mark Black and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
Red and white Baker's Twine was wrapped around the Island Indigo strip 3 times and then a bow was attached on top of the twine. Three Pool Party Candy Dots were added to the circle. A little Wink of Stella was added to the girl for shine. She is ready for a day at the beach!
