Just For You! PP#393

May 13, 2018

HAPPY MOTHER'S Day to all the Mom's!  I hope your day is special!  

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

I am the hostess this week and I have a bold, bright color challenge for all of you!  You know I love vibrant colors and I can't wait to see what you create!  I did use flowers on my card, and I adore flowers, but I hope you will get create and show me some fun ideas!

My card was created for my Mommy for Mother's Day.  She drinks a lot of tea and loves flowers, so I combined two of her favorites on her card.  My card is created on a white card base.  I used a Crumb Cake background.  It was cut with a scalloped die and embossed with the large polka dot folder.  The cup is from Uniko--I LOVE Tea stamp set.  I fussy cut the cup and then paper pieced a piece of Strawberry Slush card stock for the cup.  I embossed it with the small polka dot folder.  The tea was colored with Copic Markers.  The flowers are cut using the Stampin' Up!  Botanical Blooms framelits.  I love this set!  It makes such gorgeous blooms!   I used all the colors in the color combo for the flowers and leaves.  Candy dots were added inside the flowers.  The sentiment was stamped in black and cut with a banner die.

  1. Happy Mother's Day Claire! Your mom will love her card...the flowers are so bright and beautiful. I LOVE the colors you chose for this challenge!

  2. Great colour challenge, Claire, even if it threw me at first. It was a lot of fun. I love your cup of flowers - it would have worked for last week's challenge too! Love those Botanical Blooms framelits - I still have mine too. The textures and layers you've used are fantastic and I like the way you've used Crumb Cake as well. Have a great week and I hope your Mother's Day was a lot of fun too.

  3. OMG Claire I love these colours, they are SO me. But your card is just amazing. I love the textures and the layers exploding from the cup. Stunning. Clairex

  4. Love your bright floral bouquet, Claire! Your flowers remind me of a SU hostess stamp set I haven't used in a long while, (In the Spotlight) so will create a card this week that uses them. Both your card and Sandy's inspired me to try something totally different that my usual style. Thanks! -Donna

  5. I'll bet your Mom loved this card brimming with colorful goodness! Wonderful extra embossing touches too! I hope you're having a great week and thanks for a fun color combo this week! Hugs, Annie

  6. Claire I must admit that these colors initially challenged me, but once I started working with them I was in love with the combo. Gorgeous floral creation, I love all the wonderful layers and I bet your mom loved it too.

  7. Claire...this card is a work of art! Wow! And the teacup is so smart!

  8. Claire, bet your Mom loved this card. the profusion of flowers in the teacup is stunning and I love the background you created. thanks for such a fun challenge this week
