Lets give this another try! Apparently on Sunday I suffered from a bout of Dyslexia! I read the this week’s Paper Players Challenge as Paper Piercing… for the rest of the world it said Paper Piecing! Thank you to Sandy for bringing it to my attention. That’s the thing about blog posts, once they are out there it’s done. Thank you to the Paper Players for removing my card from yesterday, this one we can keep I hope! 🙂
Once again thank you to Jaydee for choosing my card from last week! Now on to this week’s Paper Players Challenge. The wonderful Anne Marie has given us a PAPER PIECING (just off by an R!) CAS challenge…
When I finally read it correctly I thought hmm… I don’t think that I have ever done that, well I have now! The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. I stamped the two layer cake images from the Make A Cake Stamp Set in Basic Black on Patio Party Designer Series Paper and cut them out with my Paper Snips. I stamped the images again in Primrose Petals and used the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies to cut it out And adhered the pieces to the stamped image with 2-Way Glue. I Paper-Pierced (well, I just had to :-)) the edge using the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack and the Paper-Piercing Tool. Then I cut three strips of Patio Party DSP, flagged the ends and adhered them to the card with SNAIL. The stamped image is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used the Pennant Builder Punch to make the banner across the top. Some more Patio Party DSP was inserted halfway and punched out. The Whisper White Bakers Twine needed a little something on the ends so I used some retired Twitterpated Designer Buttons mounted with Mini Glue Dots. The pennants are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set in Midnight Muse and cut it out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. A thin strip of Midnight muse is flagged and mounted behind it. I love the simplicity of the card and if you change the Primrose Petals out for another color you could easily use this for a guy’s birthday too. I hope you enjoyed this week’s Paper Players Challenge card – take 2 and thank you for enduring my Dyslexia from yesterday! Have an amazing day!
