Paper Players #107

Hello everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was great but very busy. I did get almost all of my todo list to-done so that’s a very good thing. I’m the host of card class this week and I’m looking forward to it. I’m making beans and rice with all the fixin’s for dinner, one of my daughters favorite meals.

Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. This week we have a back to school sketch challenge from Nance…

It was when I saw this weeks challenge that I wished I had gotten the From Your Teacher Stamp Set from Sale-A-Bration! Here I was thinking when will I ever use that?!?! I opted for a class of theme. I asked my daughter when she graduates and she said 2014 so here is my back to school for the class of 2014. The base of my card is Crumb Cake Card Stock. I used the Large Scallop Edgelit Dies with some Island Indigo and then used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool along the edge. The paper on the left is from the Fan Fair Designer Series Paper Pack and both items are adhered to the card with SNAIL. I used the Autumn Accents Bigz Die with the Wonderfall Stamp Set for the two leaves that are stamped in Crumb Cake. I thought the letters across them were perfect for school. The Class of and Back to School are stamped in Island Indigo using the Simply Serif Mini Alphabet and my Stamp-a-ma-jig. I paper-pierced and flagged a piece of Island Indigo for the backdrop for the numbers that are form the Memorable Moments Stamp Set and are also stamped in Island Indigo. I cut them out with my handy Paper Snips and they are all adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I have to say that Island Indigo is definitely my favorite color especially when paired with Crumb Cake. I hope that you liked this week’s Paper Players Challenge card and that you are having a great day! Thanks so much for visiting and your comments are always appreciated.
