Paper Players #134 :-)

Hello peeps! My Saturday just flew by, how about you? I’m off to Manhattan this morning to see Kim and Isabella. It rained here all day yesterday just like they promised, it’s supposed to clear up at some point today. Hopefully the latter part of today will go by a little more slowly!

It’s Sunday and that means it Paper Players time! First, congratulations to Lisa for being my Cut Above for last week’s challenge with her cute baby card! This week we have a Clean and Simple sketch from the lovely Jaydee…

Paper Players 134 2-24-2013

I have been loving the CAS cards of late and this really is the perfect sketch for it. The base of my card is Naturals White Card Stock and I rounded the lower right corner with the 1″ Circle Punch. A strip of Tea for Two Designer Series Paper is adhered down the right side. I cut out a piece of So Saffron and Early Espresso with the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies. The Early Espresso piece is cut out again with a smaller one to form a frame. The So Saffron piece is embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I adhered the frame to the base with Stampin’ Dimensional pieces. The middle image is from the Friendship Preserves Stamp Set and is stamped in Lucky Limeade and also is cut out with the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies. I markered the hello with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker, scored it and flagged the ends, then folded it and adhered it to the Lucky Limeade image with a Stampin’ Dimensional. The friend is from the Family Reunion Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso directly on to the card base. I really like the framed window and the popped up hello. I hope you enjoyed my Guest Designer card for this week’s Paper Players challenge. Don’t forget to stop by the blog to see what all of the other designers have come up and enter one of yours, you might be my pick for Cut Above next week! Enjoy your Sunday!
