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

The lovely Laurie is our hostess this week!  She has a Clean and Simple Challenge for us!  Just in time to get your Halloween on!  Have fun!  

Clean and Simple cards are always a challenge for me.  I love layers and "stuff" on my cards.  LOL!  I left a lot of white space, so I think it qualifies as  CAS.  I splattered distress inks on the background after masking the moon.  A strip of Smokey Slate card stock was added to separate the two spooky borders.  Two Craftin Desert Diva Harvest Border Dies were cut in black.   I cut tiny yellow strips to adhere behind the windows and doors.  The sentiment was stamped in Versa Mark and heat embossed with white powder.  I saved this little witch from a retired Stampin' Up set.  I just love her.  She makes me smile!  The night sky would not be complete without a few black bats.  

 Create a NEW paper, or digital, project.
  1. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.

On a personal note, I just returned from a River Cruise on the Danube.  It was gorgeous!  Very chilly and a little rainy, but it was a wonderful experience!  We visited Hungary, Austria, the Czech Repulic and stopped in Germany! Just a few shots from my trip!  The cathedrals were so beautiful!  I have so many photos to sort through!  Never enough time!  

                The steps were they filmed Do Re Mi in The Sound of Music!

Sketch Saturday #485

October 14, 2017

It's Saturday and time for a new challenge at Sketch Saturday!  Hope you will join us this week!

Our sponsor this week is Scrap N Dipity!  The winner will receive one digi stamp!  

My card features Sally Scribble Witch from Scrap N Dipity!

I used a variety of gray patterns for the sketch on a black base.  I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and colored the witch with Copic Markers.  I added Wink of Stella for shine.  A green and purple circle was added behind her to make her pop.  Sparkling white enamel dots were added for fun! 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I love to hear from you!

Don't forget to check out all the other DT members cards at Sketch Saturday.

Have a great week!

What's Canoe With You? SSC163

October 8, 2017

It's time for a new challenge at Sunday Stamps!

Please use a minimum of 3 colors and a neutral of your choice.

We have an amazing color challenge for all of you!  I must admit, this one speaks to me.  I love these colors and I am a huge fan of turquoise and Native American art.  I had so much fun creating this card! 

My card is created on a white card base.  I used the SugarPea Designs Arrow Cover Plate to create my background.  I used Real Red for the main panel.   Then I cut a Tangerine Tango and Tempting Turquoise panel and used the arrows to fill in the negative spaces.  I love the way this turned out.  I added a Tangerine Tango rectangle strip and stamped the sentiment using SugarPea Designs Indian Summer stamps set.  The little Indian in her canoe is from Your Next Stamp Little Darling Indians.  I colored the image with Copic Markers and added lots of Wink of Stella.  I used the matching dies to cut it out. A few Tempting Turquoise waves were added using a die.  Red enamel dots were added to complete my card.  

Please use a minimum of 3 colors and a neutral of your choice.
