Paper Players 240 & Freshly Made Sketches 181

Wow! Is it Monday already?! That weekend just flew by like all of the rest of them! I did have a nice day yesterday though. I managed to get my taxes done (thanks so much Melissa!!). It was such nice day yesterday that I had to take a ride in the convertible with the top down so Taylor and I went to Scrap-A-Latte to see Renee and Angie. Renee and I picked out some new goodies for next month’s card class, can’t wait to get that stuff! I came home and we had dinner with my parents and then Andrew stopped by for a bit. I helped him take the radio out of his car and put back the old one because he’s getting a new car on Tuesday! After he left I finished my laundry and cards for today. I really do need just a few more hours in the day! LOL!

Today I have two cards, one is for this week’s Paper Players and the other is for Freshly Made Sketches. First up is this week’s Paper Players and it’s a color challenge…

Paper Players #240

Some bright cheery colors! My card base is Whisper White Card Stock, and yes, it’s a tall & skinny! I used the Impression Obsession Fancy Cutout Border Die on some Pistachio Pudding. A strip of Coastal Cabana is cut and the panel is adhered with Foam Tape and then to the card with SNAIL. A piece of Strawberry Slush is cut out with the Butterfly Thinlits and backed with some Vellum and adhered to the card with more Foam Tape. Another piece of Strawberry Slush is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp You Craft Die and adhered to the card with 2-Way Glue. The greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp You Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Coastal Cabana. A few 2013-2015 In-Color Sequins finish off the card. I really like the butterfly backed with the vellum, if only we had a die for that too!

Next up is Freshly Made Sketches

Freshly Made Sketches 181

I do love when there are some off kilter elements! My card base for this one is also Whisper White Card Stock. The background is a piece of Crushed Curry that I embossed with the Tiny Triangles Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The off kilter panel is a piece of paper from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack. I cut out three feathers from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with the Simon Says Stamp Feathers Craft Die. The greeting is from a Paper Pumpkin Kit and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Basic Gray. I underlined it with with a piece of Lost Lagoon and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My feathers are tucked under the greeting and some Doodlebug and Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins are scattered to the right of the feathers and complete the card. I love the colors and the bold greeting and geometric pattern would make this a great masculine thank you card!
