Paper Players 241

Yes, this is my third post in the last 24 hours! LOL! I had busy Sunday! My dad and I fixed my convertible top, it decided that it didn’t want to go up anymore! Took the back seat out and refilled the hydraulic pump, now it goes up like a champ! After that I worked on projects, I had lots of them to do and I’m happy to report that I managed to get them all finished! Around 1:00pm Taylor and I headed over to Scrap-A-Latte, she is going to mind the store for Renee today. Renee has some personal business to take care of so Taylor volunteered. She had to learn the register and I needed to pick out paper for next month’s card class. We came back to my house and had dinner with my parents and then I had to go and get Kim so that we could go to my friend Erin’s grandmother’s wake. I think that they said that she was 94 so she had a nice long life. Came back to my house and finished up some last minute stuff. A very busy but productive and fun Sunday!

Well, it’s Monday and that means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

Paper Players #241

Thankfully I knew just what I was going to do! My card uses a base of Whisper White Card Stock. I used a piece of Watercolor Paper to heat emboss the hello from the Altenew Halftone Hello Photopolymer Stamp Set with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. To do my watercolor background I used my Aquapainter and some Bermuda Bay and Blushing Bride Ink. I tried to give the Bermuda Bay a little bit of an ombre look before moving on to the Blushing Bride. A quick shot with the Heat Tool to speed up the drying process and it was time to die cut the hello with the coordinating dies. I also cut out three more on plain white card stock and glued them all together before putting them in the negative space from the first die cut. A super clean and pretty simple card! I love the stacked die cut with the nice subtle watercolor background! I hope that you enjoy my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge along with my barrage of other posts! LOL! Thank you so much for coming by and visiting and commenting! Have a marvelous Monday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Good Morning Justin, Love the light colors and the hello. Looks very serene. Did you ever consider doing any videos? I think we all would enjoy them, if you did.

    1. Hello Nancy!
      Thank you! I would love to do videos! I just have to find the time! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Beautiful card, Justin! I love the easy watercoloring, and especially the popped-up “Hello”. What a great technique.

  3. Love it! Clean and simple watercolor perfection! I love how you cut out the image and then popped it up in the same space.

  4. O.K. Justin – the 3rd post in 24 hours! I’m not even sure what to say except you must be exhausted! Thank you for all your hard work! Watercoloring has not been my friend so I must agree with Nancy about the video thing. The simplicity of this card is what makes it so very stunning and I keep telling myself that I must try die cutting multiples and then putting them together. I love the look.

    I think it’s fantastic that Renee has so much faith in you and in Taylor. It’s wonderful that she can call upon you when she needs to be out of the shop and wonderful that you and Taylor are willing to take on that responsibility.

    I think you need to take tonight and just relax. You are tiring me out just reading the blog! LOL XO

    1. Like I said Grace, off the deep end! LOL! I will admit that three posts in a day was a lot! But, your wonderful comments make it all worth it! I will eventually find the time to do a video, someday! I love the stacked dies cuts, a lot of oomph with little effort!
      Renee is a great lady! She is very happy to have us as backups, even she needs a little time off! I am always happy to be there at the store, so is Taylor!
      I would have liked to have just relaxed, but it was not to be! I need a nap for sure! LOL! XOXO ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Hi Justin! A very pretty card today! I love your watercolor effect! You were busy yesterday, weren’t you? My goodness, exhausted just reading what you did! Glad you got your top fixed too! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I agree with Nancy—we’d love video’s from you! Hope your day’s been a good one!

    1. Hey Karen!
      I needed something nice and soft and simple after all of yesterday’s cards! Yup , busy but I do love to create! I need to loose the full time job, then I can do videos! I hope that you had a good day too! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you so much Claire! I appreciate you taking the time to come and let me know! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. 3 in 24hours, you must be tired. Love this creation, I really like your color choices ad I love the watercolor effect. I need try try this. I am seeing it everywhere. My vacation starts tomorrow, so today is my Friday, I love short work weeks, LOL Take care

    1. LOL! Yup, just a little tired Linda! The watercolor was nice and quick and simple! Yay for you going on vacation! I’m jealous!! I hope that you have a great time whatever you do! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Good gracious Justin, send me some of that energy please, just a smidge ๐Ÿ˜€ I love the ombre and color fading(?) technique on cards, it gives an awesome background. And makes your sentiment stand out beautifully. I haven’t tried this inlay nor stacking yet. This is a perfect one to try ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Glad you got your top fixed, sometimes being able to put it down and drive is the best pick me up, isn’t it? ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t know if you can really frown if the wind is flowing and the sun is shining! You have some awesome friends Justin! It’s always fun to hear what you are up to, thanks for sharing your life with us ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. He he! I can assure you that there is no energy left, I could actually use some more energy! I was little tired! Ombre is still quite big! I like the stacked die cuts! Easy and fun!
      I love having the top down! It really does make me very happy to have the wind and the sun! I do have the best people in my life and I’m very grateful! I thank you for sharing my life with me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. What a great CAS watercolour card – I love the colour choice and the clever raised-up die cut. As for your mega-posting – where do you find your energy Justin??!!! I love reading your posts though – keep ’em coming! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players again this week!

    1. Thank you Joanne! It was a very busy Sunday last week! LOL! When you enjoy something it’s easy to find the time to do it right?! I hope that you are having a nice weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚
