Paper Players 158

Yet again that weekend just flew by! Good morning, how are you all doing on this Monday? I had a very nice weekend that was the perfect blend of friends, fun and projects! It always goes too fast doesn’t it? There is always just a little more that I want to get to and before you know it it’s Sunday night at 12:00! I keep telling myself that I’m going to get to bed early, I really should just give up! LOL! It’s never gonna happen! I did go to my friends house yesterday and went in the pool, it’s saltwater which I find much nicer than chlorine. Your skin is nice and soft and you don’t smell all chemical like when you get out! Here is a little picture of the waterfall…

It’s very pretty isn’t it and very relaxing too! Moving right along to today’s post which is for this week’s Paper Players. This week we have a color challenge from the superb Sandy. It’s her debut on the design team and I think she did a nice job with these…

Paper Players #158

Apparently I am determined to show you that you can make a holiday card out of almost any colors! And we know I love a collage card! The base of today’s card is Whisper White Card Stock and I used a piece of Subtles Designer Series Paper for the background. I rounded the bottom corners on both with the 1″ Circle Punch. The stamps are from quite a few different sets, we have A Banner Christmas, Tape It, Six Sided Sampler and Christmas Collectibles. They are stamped in Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pear Pizzaz. The ornament is punched out with the Christmas Ornament Punch, the HO3 (which I think is great!) is punched out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch and the hexagons are punched out with, what else, the Hexagon punch. I had some leftover chevrons from my card the other day that I cut out with the Circle Thinlits Dies so they found a little home in the lower left corner. I also thought a hook on the ornament would be neat so I fashioned one out of a paperclip! A fun and definitely different Christmas card! I thank you very much for coming by to see my Paper Players card for this week’s color challenge from Sandy. Show Sandy some love and enter your card in the gallery! I hope that you have an excellent day! 🙂
