Friends--PP #328

January 22, 2017

It's Sunday!  That means it is time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The lovely Jaydee is our hostess this week.  She is the queen of marvelous floral cards.  She wants to see flowers on your CAS projects this week.







My card was created to celebrate my very best friend's (from college) birthday!  That means we have been friends, FOREVER!  She loves turquoise.  

I used a white card base today.  I created a blend of Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress inks to make the background frame on watercolor paper.  The water color panel on the front is trimmed with a rectangle stitched die.  The flowers from WPlus 9 Doddle Buds are probably one of my favorite stamp sets.  I used my Zig Watercolor markers to color the flowers in different shades of blue and green.  I used the dies to cut the front flower out and popped it up with dimensionals.  I also added Wink of Stella to the flowers for shine.  



Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.

Sending a Whole Lot of Love Your Way--Sketch Saturday #447

January 21, 2017

It's Saturday and time for a new challenge at Sketch Saturday!

Our sponsor this week is  Digi Stamp Boutique.  The prize is a $10.00 gift card for the winner.  We sure hope you will play along with us!  We can't wait to see what you create!

My card is created using the Cute Love Panda digi stamp.


My card is created on a white card base.  The top layer is red and cut with a rectangle die.  I used some Valentine paper for the XOXO layer and backed it with black.  The digi Cute Love Panda was shaded with a Copic Marker-C1.  I added a heart on the side and covered it with Glossy Accents for lots of shine.  Three black enamel dots were added.  Wink of Stella was added on the red hearts.

Merry Christmas-Reindeer-Merry Monday #231

January 19, 2017

Today I am playing along with The Merry Monday Challenge.  I love the idea of making Christmas cards all year and this challenge makes me keep to the plan.  Check out their blog for lots of fantastic inspiration!

This week the challenge is Reindeer!  I knew I had to play along.  I have several stamp sets with reindeer and it was difficult to decide which set to use.




My base card is white.  I used the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle Dies by SugarPea Designs to cut the background papers and the white rectangle.  The deer are stamped and cut out using the Avery Elle Kitsch Christmas stamps and dies.  I colored them with Copic Markers.  The sentiment and black snowflakes are from the same set and stamped in Memento Black ink.  Wink of Stella and white gel pen were added for shine and detail.  



Thanks for stopping by!  Let me know what you think.  I love to hear from you!

HUGS!
