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

The amazing Anne Marie is our hostess this week at The Paper Players  and she has a fun Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us!  You know I love polka dots so, I am a happy girl!  Nothing more "southern" than polka dots!  Remember to keep it CAS this week! 

Sunday Stamps  has a beautiful color challenge! It was so easy to combine these two challenges this week!  

So put on those thinking caps and get creative! 



CLEAN AND SIMPLE WEEK
MINIMAL LAYERS
LITTLE TO NO EMBELLISHMENTS
LOTS OF CLEAN WHITE SPACE (NO PATTERN)


Use a minimum of 3 colors and a neutral of your choice.

I had a lot of fun creating this card.  My card base is white and then I added a white panel embossed with large polka dots for my background.  A panel of black was added for accent and then another white layer was added.  These little daises are from Clearly Besotted Celebrating You stamp set.  I stamped the daisies in black and colored the centers with yellow Copic Markers and also added some gray on the petals to create dimension!  The bright pink bow was cut using a die in this set.  I stamped the sentiment in stamp!

The lovely Laurie is our hostess this week and she has a fun color challenge for all of us!  I love red, so I really enjoyed this palette.  We can't wait to see what you create!  





My card was created on a white card base.  I added a black and white check on the bottom and a light grey panel on the top of the card base  I trimmed the bottom of the gray panel with a scalloped border die.  I cut a second layer in Real Red to separate the two panels.  I stamped the strawberries in Real Red ink using the Concord & 9th Sweet Strawberries Stamp Set .  I cut them out with the matching dies.  I added Wink of Stella for shine and a few enamel dots to complete this fun card.

Let's Have Fun! Paper Players Challenge PP539 Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC256


May 2, 2021  

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

The amazing Joanne is the hostess at The Paper Players  this week.  She has a fabulous Theme Challenge for all of us!  Snips, Snails and Puppy Dog Tails--Cards for Boys!  I love this idea.  

The Sunday Stamps Challenge is a beautiful sketch by Heather.  It is such a versatile sketch for any occasion!

Have fun and get creative with your projects! 


 


My card is created on a white card base.  I found this safari paper in my stash and knew it was perfect for a little boys card.  I added the collage of animals for the background and a matching plaid for the rectangle strip.  The leopard paper was cut with a starburst die.  The white rectangle was cut with a die and white twine was used around the center of the plaid.  The little boy and the sentiment were stickers in the kit.  This card was quick and easy to make, but I think it is so fun!  I added the leopard print on the envelope flap for fun!
