My card is created on a white card base.  I cut a pink frame using MFT Blueprints dies.  The stitched white rectangle was cut using the same dies.  I added splotches of paint with the W Plus 9 Ink Splats stamp set using different distress inks. The paint brushes and pot were stamped using the Stampin' Up! Crafting Forever Clear Mount stamp set.  I colored them with Copic Markers.  The sentiment is from the same set.  A few sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and Wink of Stella was added for shine.  I just love this color combo!

Sweet 16 -- PP3357

August 13, 2017

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




The sensational Sandy is our hostess this week!  Her color challenge is so pretty!  I was a little stumped at first, but then I ended up having several ideas with the palette. Have fun and we can't wait to see how you use these colors! 




My card is created on a white card base.  I used the MFT Bold Stripes Die to create the fun frame and layers.  I used Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral stripes.  A Pear Pizzazz starburst frame was created around the white sunburst circle and adhered on top of the bold stripes frame.   I cut the "16" from Bermuda Bay using Stampin' Up!  Large Number Framelit dies.  I used the MFT Fall Florals  stamp set to create the flowers and the leaves.  Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay ink was used on the flowers and Pear Pizzazz was used on the leaves.  The matching dies were used to cut out all the pieces.  Enamel dots were used in the center of each flower.  The word "sweet" is cut three times in Calypso Coral using the Tayolred Expressions die and Glossy Accents was added to create lots of shine.  A little Bermuda Bay heart was placed in the script.  This card was created for my niece, Olivia.  She turned 16 this week.

You Are Better Than Summer Sunshine! FMS300 and SIP #111

August 12, 2017

Today I am playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge and the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.  


   

I LOVE the beach and I am so excited that this is the 300th sketch for the Freshly Made Sketches Team.  That is an amazing accomplishment!  


My card is created on a white card base.  I found a beautiful piece of DSP of a gorgeous sunshine in my stash for the background.  I added Island Indigo card stock behind the beach ball and sunshine piece of DSP.  I added the yellow polka dot DSP behind the embossed Island Indigo rectangle.  The flip flops were stamped on the yellow polka dot paper and fussy cut using a Simon Says Stamp set.  Glossy Accents was added to the shoes and a little candy dot was added to the flip flops.  I used the sentiment from the same stamp set and sponged the edges with Island Indigo ink.  A few more candy dots were added for fun.  Baker's Twine was added with a bow for a little more pop.  


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
Now, I am off to enjoy some summer sunshine in Atlanta, GA!  It has rained all week and I need a doze of Vitamin D!  

Have a great weekend!
