Paper Players 155 & Sneak Peek!

Hello my friends and a good afternoon to you! I had this great idea that after I landed this morning I would come home and make a card and get my post done. Well, that didn’t happen! I passed out! Sorry for my lateness. My time at Convention was amazing and I have made so many new friends and I think that was definitely the best part. Of course the new product announcements were pretty cool too! But the people part of the equation made the whole experience one that I will never forget. I’ll be posting some pictures over the next couple of weeks, I hope that you enjoy them. Here is my first one for you. Did you ever meet someone and it feels like you have known them forever, that would be how it was with my new bestie Brian King. He is an incredibly talented, funny and kind person. Now if only he didn’t snore… just kidding!


That’s us in front of Stampin’ Up! Headquarters in Riverton. I’m so happy for his success and look forward to what is in store for next year!

So, I can’t forget to tell you about the specials and new goodies that we have going on at the moment. We have a Designer Series Paper deal for you. If you buy three packs of DSP at regular price you get one pack of equal or lesser value for FREE! You have until July 31st to get this great deal!


There will also be some really awesome new Thinlits available on August 1st. They cut and score a flip card in one easy step and include dies for embellishments too!


How neat is that?! These Thinlits make it super easy to mass produce interactive cards that would be great for invitations, announcements or Christmas cards. I know I can’t wait to get mine! đŸ™‚

Ok, now on to today’s card that is for this week’s Paper Players clean and simple challenge from Jaydee…

Paper Players #155

Continuing on with my sneak peeks of products from the new Holiday Catalog that will be available on August 1st, just a little over a week from now! The base of my card is Costal Cabana Card Stock. The background is a piece of paper from the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack*. I used some Bushed Silver Card Stock and the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies to cut out the snowflake. The greeting is from the Joy to the World Stamp Set* and is heat embossed with Smokey Slate Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I flagged the left side and threaded it through the snowflake. A sliver of Costal Cabana with some Basic Jewels Rhinestones give the card a little sparkle to finish it off. I’m having so much fun showing you the new goodies and can’t wait for you to get your hands on them! Thank you so much for coming by to see my Paper Players card for this week’s challenge. I hope that you enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
