Paper Players 136 :-)

A very good Sunday morning to you all! Did you forget to spring forward? If it has the word spring in it I will definitely remember! We loose an hour but it’s a for a good cause, warmer weather is on the way. It was actually pretty nice here yesterday. Most of the snow is gone and I think it got up to around 50 degrees. It was so nice that I did drive around with top down on the car, just for a little while. 🙂

Sunday means it’s time for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. As always, before I get to this week I want to congratulate Stacey for being my choice for Cut Above for last weeks In Stitches challenge. You can see the winners list here. This week we have a color challenge for the wonderful Nance…

Paper Players #136 Color 3-10-2013

I was a little worried when I first saw this combination but after playing for a bit I love it! The base of my card is Early Espresso Card Stock. I used some White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and my heat tool to emboss the greeting from the Vintage Verses Stamp Set from Sale-A-Bration right on the base. Directly above that is a piece of paper from the Brights Collection Designer Series Paper Pack. Next, I adhered a Tea Lace Paper Doily with some SNAIL. The tag is created with my Simply Scored and some Pool Party. I used the Little Leaves Sizzlit to cut out two piece of Lucky Limeade. The rolled paper roses are made using the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch and some Regal Rose. A little inward circular cutting with my Paper Snips and some hot glue and they are ready to be adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots. The butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set. I stamped them in Regal Rose and used the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches to punch them out. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere both them and the tag to the card. I have been wanting to make some rolled paper roses for a while, I don’t know why I put it off for so long, they were super easy to make. I hpoe that you enjoyed my Paper Players Guest Designer card for this week’s color challenge from Nance. Thank for checking in with me today and I hope that you enjoy your Sunday!
