Prayers and Love PP401

June 15, 2018

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

A huge thank you to everyone that played in our 400th challenge!  All of your kind words and comments made us feel so special!  The gallery was amazing!  We are very thankful for your support each week!

The amazing Joanne-from across the pond is our hostess this week.  I absolutely LOVE this color combo.  Although my first thought was flowers, I am excited to see what you create!  Use your imagination!  

I created a card and a wine tag this week.  I was going to a party and needed a tag for my hostess gift and then I loved it so much I made a card for someone special!  

The stamped set is Hello Lovely from Concord and 9th.  On both projects, I stamped the image with Versa Fine ink and heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder.  I colored the image with Zig Clean Water Brushes and an aqua painter.  Wink of Stella was added to the flowers.  

The prayers sentiment was cut using the Hero Arts Prayers stamp and die set.  The Cheers was cut using gold glitter paper and black card stock.  I added a few gold sequins on my card.

  1. Such a beautiful card and tag. The colours are so eye catching and vibrant. Glad I popped over from the blog, as I would have missed the fabulous tag otherwise. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration x.

  2. Claire, my first thought was flowers, too! I love the addition of the gold, it adds a richness and luxe to the color combo. I love your wine tag, too! Fabulous card, my friend

  3. I had flowers on the brain, too! So perfect for these colors. This is gorgeous, Claire! Bold and beautiful just like you. Such a gorgeous stamped image too.

  4. Looks like we all went floral which just seemed the right thing to do! Your coloring is fabulous with that gold embossing! I want you to bring a bottle of wine to my house with a beautiful tag :) Hope you're having a good week ~ Hugs, Annie

  5. What a gloriously vibrant bouquet! The gold and Wink of Stella add a whole extra layer of elegance. Beautiful, Claire!

  6. Such a pretty, pretty card and tag, Claire! I have this stamp set and love it too. I love the addition of gold to these colors, just gorgeous!

  7. Hey Claire, Love your card and the tag. This is my fave flower stamp ever, so very versatile. I love the colours you have chosen and the large word dies work so well. FYI, the linky tool isn't working so I can't link up my post from Thurs :( Clairex

  8. I love, love, love these fabulous flowers Claire with the touches of gold and sparkle - what a gorgeous card and bottle tag combo Claire, I'm sure the hostess loved her fancy bottle! Way to rock my colours this week!
