Paper Players 281

Did you know that Friday is still my favorite day of the week, always will be! I had a fun Thursday! I got to visit with little Daniel for a bit and then Taylor and Keira came by again. I also FaceTimed with Andrea, we do craft better together! LOL! Last night was Thirsty Thursday, more fun at Heather’s as always! This morning I’m off to see Renee at Scrap-A-Latte and then to pick up Sandy from the airport. We are going to have lunch and then I’m out to dinner with Anthony and Bill later on tonight! A nice busy day! Tomorrow is supposed to be wickedly cold so I think that I will be spending some quality time indoors crafting!

Today I have my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

Paper Players #281

Aww, use a dog or a cat, ok! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the background I used the Lawn Fawn 4 Bar Stitched Rectangles Lawn Cuts to cut out a piece of Pink Pirouette and then used the Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow Stencil to apply Wendy Vecchi Metallic Gold Embossing Paste, tapping off the stitched edges. After it dried I adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. Across the lower half is a piece of Solar White 80lb with the ends flagged and that’s adhered with Foam Tape. The pawesome is cut from Gold Foil Sheet with the Simon Says Stamp Pawesome Craft Die and two more times from Solar White 80lb. I adhered them together and to the card with Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. The rest of the greeting is stamped in Onyx Black Ink using the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Celebration Photopolymer Stamp Set. My little dog and crown are from the Mama Elephant Lunar Animals Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored them in with Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies. A little Foam Tape holds him in place and completes the card. I love the stitched edge and the gold embossing paste on the pink! A fun simple birthday card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Theme Challenge! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a pawesome Friday! 🙂

    1. Thank you Michael! LOL! Winston won’t fit on the table! LOL! Trying to stay warm! Hope that you are too! Oh, wait, you aren’t in the teens today! 🙂

  1. HI Justin – love the card but……………….did you take Winston’s puppy toy away from him to use with your card photo? If so – bark, bark (which means bad human, bad human)!

    I really do love the way you emboldened the sentiment by using multiple layers of card stock. Also, you did a fabulous job with the Copics when coloring that cute as can be puppy. All in all this is really a super card. You met the challenge and conquered it! Yeah!

    Have yourself a Fabulous Friday. Love and hugs to you – stay warm! XO 🙂

    1. Hello Grace!
      Thank you! LOL! No, it’s not Winston’s toy, he would eat that, it’s way too small! LOL!
      I love to layer the die cuts and I do have fun with my Copics! I hope that you have a great Friday! Love and Hugs to you! It’s going to be hard to stay warm with the freezing temps, but I’ll try! XOXO 🙂

  2. This is really cute! Bundle up its freezing here, the wind is horrid and it moving east. Yep, friday is my favorite day also, the knowledge of two days off to do whatever. Mondays are my worst

    1. Thanks so much Linda! Once again you are sending your weather my way! LOL! I’m with you on the days! Enjoy the weekend! 🙂

  3. Super cute little puppy you’ve got there, Justin! I think it must be a “she” since she has a crown and a pink and gold background…just adorable! Glad you got Sandy back safe & sound too! AND so glad you could play with my challenge at the Paper Players this week!

    1. Thank you LeAnne! Yes, he could be a she with the little crown and the pink is a dead give away! Sandy is all safe and sound at home! Thanks for the great challenge and enjoy the rest of your weekend! 🙂
