Paper Player 135 :-)

Hello there! Sunday already, boy these weekends move pretty fast! I had a semi-productive Saturday. I finally got a much needed haircut, I was looking like I don’t know what! I puttered around the house and played at the craft desk for a bit which I don’t normally get to do. Most of the time when I sit there it’s for a project or challenge, it’s nice to just mess around! This morning I’m going to a chocolate show by the Cradle of Aviation out here on Long Island with my friend Danielle. I do love some chocolate! How was your day, what’s on tap for today?

Sunday means it’s time for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. First, congratulations to Danielle (different one! LOL!) for being my pick for Cut Above last week. I love her CAS card using one of my current favorite sets, Sent with Love. Now this week we have a theme challenge from the lovely LeAnne…

Paper Players 135 Theme 3-03-2013

I have to admit that I was at a loss when I first saw this one. I thought hmm… I knew I should have gotten that Hoop La-La Set! After pondering it for a bit I remembered that I do have something stitched! The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. The background is made up of 1/2″ strips of Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Gumball Green, Bashful Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point and Perfect Plum Card Stock. Wow, that was a lot of colors! I ran each one through the Big Shot using the Needlepoint Border Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I adhered them all to a piece of Crumb Cake (I don’t know why I choose that color!) with SNAIL and then trimmed off the excess on either side. The greeting is from the Sunshine Single Clear Mount Stamp and is stamped in Tangerine Tango. I backed it with a piece of Perfect Plum and adhered the panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I thought it needed a little something more so I stamped the sun from the Spring Sampler Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight and cut him out. Another Stampin’ Dimensional holds him in place. I can honestly say that is the most colors I have ever used on a card, but that’s what a rainbow is all about right?!?! I hope that you enjoyed my bright happy Paper Players Guest Designer card for this week’s challenge from LeAnne. Hop on over to the Paper Players blog to see what my other peeps have come up with and enter a card of your own to share with us! Thank you for spending some time with me today and enjoy yours!
