And into another week we go! Happy Monday! I have a ton of stuff to do this week and I’m hoping to get to all of it. Isn’t it funny how busy the Holidays really are?! Is everything kicking into high gear for you too? I spent the afternoon in Manhattan yesterday seeing some friends and it was rainy but for some reason I don’t really mind it when I’m in the city.
Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Players. Nance has given us a color challenge…
Pool Party and Cherry Cobbler make for a nice color combo when paired with a neutral don’t you think? The base of my card is Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. I took a piece of Pool Party and stamped it with the Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set in Pool Party for a frosty tone-on-tone effect. The new punch and stamp set from Sale-A-Bration are used to make the backgrounds for the ornaments. I stamped the images from the Pretty Petites Stamp Set** in Cherry Cobbler and punched them out with the Petite Curly Label Punch**. The ornaments are from the Merry Minis Stamp set and are Stamped in Pool Party and punched out with the Merry Minis Punch Pack. Both are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Greetings of the Season Stamp Set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I used a piece of Cherry Cobbler to back it and that too is adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really do like the colors together and the simplicity of the card is fun too. I hope that you enjoyed you little sneak peek and my Paper Players Challenge card for this week. Thank you very much for your visit and I hope that you have a good Monday!
