Paper Players #116

Good morning, is it Monday already?! Where did the weekend go?! I would like to go back in time and find the genius that thought a five day work week and two days off was a good idea! LOL! It was gloomy and cold here most of the day yesterday and rained. It definitely feels like fall. I’m also not a fan of it getting dark so early and soon it will be dark at 4:00, bummer! Anyway, there is my morning rant, now on to more pleasant things!

Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. This week the lovely LeAnne has given us this interesting challenge…

I was thinking of using the Tea Shoppe set but I opted for a holiday theme instead. The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I used a piece of the flocked window sheet from the Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper. I punched a hole in both the card and the flocked window sheet with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. Some very carefully placed glue holds the flocked window sheet to the card base. I also used a piece of the Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP and my Simply Scored Tool to make a rosette which I adhered with some Mini Glue Dots inside the punched circle. The mug is from the Scentsational Season Stamp Set. It is stamped in Soft Suede and cut out with the Holiday Collection Framelits Dies. I adhered it to the rosette with a Stampin’ Dimensional. The greeting is from the Chock Full of Cheer Stamp Set and is also stamped in Soft Suede. I used the Extra Large Oval Punch to punch it out and backed it with a piece of Soft Suede that I cut out using the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies. They are adhere to each other and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really like the flocked window sheet and rosettes are my favorite embellishment. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Paper Player Challenge card. Thank you so very much for checking in with me today, I hope that your day is amazing!
