Paper Players 289

And we are coming into the home stretch of the week! It was chilly here again most of the day but started to warm up late in the evening. We are to have some rain today but it will be warmer! I’ll take it! Yesterday I tried to have a crafty day but other things kept getting in the way! I “lost” a stamp for a while and then Taylor and Kiera came over and Taylor found it for me within three minutes! She should have been here earlier! LOL! Last night they came back over and we watched a movie. A nice way to end the day! Today I have lots of stuff to get done, wish me luck!

The card that I have for you today is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

Paper Players #289

It took me a while to come up with this one, I don’t have that much western stuff! The card base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I stamped a piece of Tip Top Taupe that I cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles Dies with the Hardwood Background Stamp in Simon Says Stamp Khaki Ink. My greeting is a Unity Stamp called Whiskey than Tea that I have had for a while and it’s heat embossed in Cherry Cobbler. I wrapped some Papertrey Ink Natural Twine around the panel and secured a Regals Collection Designer Button to it. The panel is then adhered to the base with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My stars are Cherry Cobbler and they areΒ cut out with Momenta Starts Cut & Emboss Dies. The right and left ones are adhered with E-Z Runner and the middle one with some Foam Tape. I love the woodgrain background and the stars are pretty neat too! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thank you for visiting me today! Have an amazing Thursday! πŸ™‚

  1. Wow! What a saying!! You did a great job on the Western theme! Love it! Have a Terrific Thirsty Thursday…Hugs, Nancy B

  2. Your card is perfect for the challenge. I love the stars, the sentiment and the twine. Great job. Have another great day.

  3. Hi Justin:

    For someone with no Western stuff you managed to make one of the most Western cards I’ve seen to date. Sheriff’s stars and barn board background couldn’t be any more perfect. Of course red is the color of all those bandannas the old cowboys wore over their faces. Heck, I’d say you covered it all with this card. Once again you have hit the nail on the head. LOL

    It actually snowed here last night but the temps have risen to slightly above freezing so now it’s just rain. The weather people are predicting heavy rain and high winds and the likelihood of power outages for tonight. We shall see.

    Wishing you a Tantalizing Thursday and a fun Thirsty Thursday celebration tonight. Love and hugs to you my friend, XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. Hello Grace!
      Thank you!! I had to search for a while!! I do love the stars and hardwood is still one of my favorite backgrounds!
      Snow?! You can definitely keep that! We have had lots of wind lately! I’m over it! LOL!
      Thirsty Thursday was great and I hope that you had a fun day too! Love and hugs to you! XOXO πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks you so much Joanne! It’s definitely a fun sentiment! So glad that you like the card! Hope that you are having a good week! πŸ™‚

  4. I LOVE that sentiment, Justin! LOL! The twine and hardwood give such a Western feel,too. Thanks for “roundin” up” a card for the Western challenge at The Paper Players this week!
