Paper Players Color Challenge #128

Happy Sunday peeps! I had a very nice time in Manhattan yesterday. Kim and I went to the diner for breakfast. After that we went down to the Village an wandered around. We stopped at Chelsea Market, which smelled divine. We wandered around and made our way up to Korea Town and had some Korean food for dinner. It was a nice nothing planned see where the day takes you kind of day. We didn’t get to the movies but that’s ok, we’ll see something next time.

Sunday also means that it’s time for another challenge from the Paper Players. This week we have a color challenge from Anne Marie…

Paper Player 128 1-13-2013

I puzzled over what to do for this one. I finally settled on a clean and simple card. The base of my card is Basic Gray Card Stock. For the background I embossed a piece of Daffodil Delight with the Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The main panel is stamped with an image from the You’re Amazing Stamp Set in Pacific Point. I used the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies to cut it and before it is adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals I pierced around the edge with the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool. The tickets across the bottom are from the Take a Ticket Stamp Set and are also stamped in Pacific Point. I punched them out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch and adhered them with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals. I thought the card needed a little bling so I put some Basic Jewels Rhinestones on the main image. Who wouldn’t want to get a card proclaiming that they are amazing?!?! I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer card for this week’s Paper Player Color Challenge from Anne Marie. Oh, congratulations to Audrey for being my choice for Cut Above for last week’s challenge.

  1. Amazing color scheme–I love it. Going to case your card πŸ™‚ Not sure I’ll use the tickets,maybe some kind of flowers!

  2. Great use of the colours! You say it is a simple card but you still manage to use quite a few products there. Love it! Glad you had a nice day yesterday and enjoyed the Korean meal!

  3. Justin, you wow me every day with your cards–now I’m thinking I need the You’re Amazing stamp set! The argyle folder made a great background, and the diamonds were a perfect finishing touch. What a lovely card!

    1. Thank you Georgie! I’m so happy that you take some time to stop by and see what I’m up to! I love that set, great for masculine cards! πŸ™‚

      Have a great evening!

  4. That’s the ticket, right there! Awesome card, Justin! You know I’m loving that bling-bling! I have said it before and I will say it again, you totally inspire me to get out the paper piercer every time I visit. Sounds like you had a fun day in the city, too! This native NY-er is super jealous! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Anne Marie! Yes, I do like some Paper-Piercing and a little bling! I had a great day in the city, I’m there so often and always find something new! Have a great week! πŸ™‚

  5. Great card, Justin! The argyle texture is the perfect accent to the circus feel of the stamp sets. Great way to feature this week’s colors too! Enjoy the rest of your week!
