Paper Players 164

Well that four day weekend just flew by didn’t it. Thursday I was on a plane to Atlanta, Friday I was Zip-Lining, Saturday I was stamping with Brian and Sunday another plane and then a trip into Manhattan and a lovely belated birthday dinner with my friend Kim. It was so jam packed with fun that’s probably why it went so quickly! I really did have an amazing weekend, a HUGE thank you to everyone that made it possible! 🙂

Today I have my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This time we have a sketch from the lovely and talented Sandy…

Paper Players #164

After I made my anniversary card for my parents I used the Typeset Alphabet to cut out some excess rubber from a stamp set in an ampersand, that’s where today’s ampersand comes from. The base of the card is Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock. The background is made from two pieces of Etcetera Designer Series Paper. I used the Needlepoint Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and some Night of Navy to cover the seam down the middle. A piece of Old Olive is cut out withe the Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies and some Basic Jewels Pearls are added in the center of each one. Some Calypso Coral, cut out with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and a piece of Pool Party, stamped in Night of Navy with the Ampersand are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the background. A Brights Designer Button with some Linen Thread is adhered to the ampersand with a Mini Glue Dot. The greeting is form the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set and is also stamped in Night of Navy. I really love the colors in the Etcetera DSP and the ampersand is pretty cool too! Thank you for stopping by to see my second Stamped with Brian card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge from Sandy. I hope you enjoyed the card and your Monday! 🙂
