Not a bad Sunday if I do say so myself! I did some crafty stuff in the morning and some laundry. Met Heather for lunch and some errands. They make an excellent tuna wrap at the deli on Central Avenue in Bethpage so we went there and sat outside! Yes, I said sat outside! It was definitely a plus!! After some errands we went back to Heather’s and we listened to some music while she made sauce from scratch. I’m a little obsessed with Zedd at the moment. He’s a DJ but he also does acoustic versions of his songs with live instruments. You can learn more about him HERE. What kind of fun stuff were you up to today?!
It’s Monday and you know what that means, it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge! This week LeAnne has given us a “Three-Spree” challenge…
I had a little more fun with my E-Cutter on today’s card. The base of my card is Bermuda Bay Card Stock. On top of that is the background piece, some Pool Party, which I popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals because I cut the “HELLO” out with my E-Cutter and placed some Gold Foil Sheet behind the open letters. The cool thing is that hone I cut out the letters, it also cut out the perfectly sized piece of Card Stock that I needed to use as a background. The feathers are also cut out with the E-Cutter from the Feathered Woodcuts Digital Download from Bermuda Bay. I stamped them in Versa-Mark with one of the stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set and heat embossed them with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. A piece of Linen Thread is wrapped around the card and threaded through a Naturals Designer Button and tied in a bow. I finished off the card with some gold and “Bermuda Bay” sequins placed around the card. Following the challenge, I have three feathers and three of each of the sequins; since there are two types of sequins, I have three sets of three objects placed on the card. Challenge accomplished! LOL! For those of you that haven’t tried the E-Cutter, I hope my card has inspired you to experiment. The possibilities are endless and it’s a fun addition to your card-making arsenal. I hope you’ve enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Player’s challenge! Thanks as always for stopping by, and I hope your week gets off to a great start! 🙂
