Paper Players 194

Monday… that’s all I have to say about that! I hope that you all had a nice weekend. I definitely did! Saturday morning I did some sneaker stuff with Andrew, we had lunch and then he went home for a bit and I came home and finished up my projects for yesterday’s Creative Station post. Andrew came back later and we got some dinner and finished up my post. Yesterday I took it easy, I did some laundry and watched a few movies. A nice relaxing Sunday after a busy few days. So, did you all enjoy the first Creation Station Blog Tour yesterday?! I had so much fun making the projects and taking the pictures of the process. Thank you to all of you that visited! Time to get ready for the next one in two weeks, it will be here before you know it!

Monday and it’s time once again for the Paper Players challenge. This week the wonderful Jaydee has asked to celebrate Mother…

Paper Players #194

A very timely challenge seeing as Mother’s Day is next week! I have been coloring my little fingers off with the new Stampin’ Blendabilities*, they are so great that I used them on today’s card too! My card base is a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and I stamped an image from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight, stamping off too. I ran the card through the Big Shot using the File Tabs Edgelits*. My greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry on the tab. To add a little interest I adhered a piece of paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack to the inside right of the card. My tag is created using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and I stamped it with the Very Vintage Jumbo Stampin’ Around Wheel in Sahara Sand. The flowers are from the Flower Shop Stamp Set and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink* and colored in with the Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers*. I used the Pansy Punch to punch them out and adhered them to the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The lovely butterfly is from the “Vintage” Best of Butterflies 25th Anniversary Stamp Set and is also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black* and colored in with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers*. He too is held in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Can you tell how much I am loving those Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers*?!?! I have been coloring the day away! LOL! I also am digging the File Tab Edgelits*, they add some nice interest to the card don’t you think? I hope that you enjoyed my take on this week’s challenge from Jaydee and the Paper Players. Thanks so much for taking some time to catch up with me, I really appreciate your visit and I hope that you have a magnificent Monday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Your flowers look so pretty, you’ve done an awesome job on the coloring. Can’t wait to try those new Blendabilities. The layout of this card is awesome! Have a great day!

    1. Hi Karen!
      Yes, they come around way too fast! Thank you! I’m a little surprised that they only have 1, 2 & 3 in the File Tab Edgelits, I wish they had all the numbers. I love using the Blendabilities, I colored so much this weekend! I love a tag on a card, it helps ground everything. I hope that you enjoy your Monday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Justin, there’s so much to love about this card! I especially like the file folder tab with the sentiment on it and dsp peeking out underneath, plus the coloring is fabulous! Your Mom is going to love it. Thank for sharing with us at The Paper Players!

    1. Thank you Sandy! The File Folder Tabs are neat and much easier than the Envelope Punch Board! Have a wonderful Monday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Hi Justin, I love your card and I am so envious that you already have your pre-order and are able to start playing with the new products! Tomorrow evening when I get home from work, I’ll be playing too. Meantime, I will enjoy your beautiful card!

    1. Hello Melanie!
      Thank you very much! I was glad that I accidentally overnighted it, gave me the whole weekend to play! You are going to have so much fun! Enjoy your day! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. This is a very lovely card Justin. Love everrything about it. You are so lucky to already be able to play with all your new “toys”!

    1. Thank you Louise! I’m really glad that I choose next day shipping! LOL! You are going to have so much fun! I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed the first Creation Station Tour! Enjoy the rest of your Monday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I’m loving those markers and I don’t have mine yet. It won’t be long. I got my notice they have been shipped. Justin your coloring is exceptional! I think the file card is cool. Need to try one.

    1. Thanks Lisa! Me too! The Blendabilities are great! I am just starting out with them and I didm’t think it was that good, but thanks! I do like the File Tabs Edgelits too, make a fun card! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I read that you should use Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp if you are using Blendabilites. Do you know anything about that? What ink did you use to stamp your image?

    1. Yes Lisa, we will sell it in the new Catalog. You need to use it so it does’t bleed with the alcohol markers. I used Memento Tuxedo Black. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Justin! I LOVE this card. Love the file cut, love the colors, love the Blendabilities. Never knew you were a colorist! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. WOW, just WOW, a definite CASE! I LOVE this color combo, it is so rich. I am impatiently waiting for my file tabs and markers. I’m too cheap to pay for quicker shipping, LOL

    Thanks for sharing your talents

    1. Thank you very much Linda! I have no patience, that’s why I paid the extra! I think it was worth it! LOL! Have a great evening! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Very cool card, Justin….my order will be here Friday, with those blendabilities and that cut little tab die….can’t wait to play with them myself! Love what you did with these, a wonderful mother’s day card!

  11. Love this, Justin! I wasn’t going to get those File Tab Edgelits either…but now, I NEED them! Ha! You sneaky little enabler…yet again! *shakes fists in air* A gorgeous Mother’s Day card! Thank you so much for joining us at the Paper Players again this week! Have a great day! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Justin, another gorgeous card. I love how you created the tab from the new dies. Genius to use it on a card! I also love the mixture of the softness of the flowers with the spattered background. So glad you joined the Paper Players again this week

    1. Thank you very much Jaydee! The new File Tab Dies are fun! I do love a tag too! LOL! I hope that you have a nice weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚
