Paper Players 206

Oh, the weekend goes by so quickly! I guess time does fly when you’re having fun! I had a nice productive day yesterday, I spent a good portion of it in the Stampin’ Galley getting some but not all of my projects finished. I managed to get four cards made yesterday and in between I did some laundry and the dishes. Not an exciting day by any means but they are good to have every once in a while. It was a beautiful day here despite the fact that they said we would have some rain, that happened last night, the best time for rain to happen. I also got to FaceTime with my cousin Tracey in England for a while. I love catching up with her and it’s so nice to see her when we talk. Modern technology, gotta love it!

It’s Monday and that means that once again it’s time for the Paper Players challenge. Before I get to today’s card I wanted to thank ann for selecting me as her pick for Cut Above in last week’s Monochromatic Color challenge. You can see the winners post HERE and my original post HERE. Now on to this week, we have a sketch…

Paper Players #206

I knew that I wanted to frame something I just wasn’t sure what and then it came to me! My card starts off with a base of Daffodil Delight Card Stock. The background is a piece of Park Lane Designer Series Paper that I backed with a piece of Blackberry Bliss. I used the Ovals Collection Framelits to cut out a piece of Soft Suede and then another piece for the frame. My image/greeting is from the Well Worded Stamp Set and is stamped once in Old Olive on Whisper White, also cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits, and again in Blackberry Bliss and cut out with my Paper Snips. Next up are a strip of Daffodil Delight and two strips of Old Olive that I flagged the ends on. I Then adhered the frame, flower and oval to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I like the Well Worded Set with the sentiments tucked inside the images and the colors and patterns in the Park Lane DSP are cool and fun! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge. Thank you for dropping by and I hope that you have a nice easy Monday! 🙂

  1. Hi Justin! Pretty card today! I do love the way you made the frame for the flower. And popping the flower up adds so much—love that. This is a great layout also. The weekends do fly by—must be because we enjoy them so much~Have a great Monday! 😉

    1. Hello Karen!
      Thank you! I like a little dimension especially when the rest of the card is simple. Yes, it’s a very neat sketch this week! I agree that the weekends fly by because we enjoy them. I hope you are having a great day! 🙂

      1. Hey Justin—saw on the Brian Williams’ newscast tonight the story of little Danny Nickerson! What a sweetheart he is. So far they said he’s received over 100,000 cards! I’m so glad you mentioned him in your blog and that some of your readers sent him cards also. It’s nice to be able to bring a little happiness to that little guy!

  2. Oh this is definitely one to case, so pretty. I love how you did the frame and the colours rock!

  3. Love your card, Justin! Snipping out that flower really makes it pop on the page. and your frame is great! I also have been following your new craft room updates…will you show us pics when it’s all complete and organized? 🙂 Doesn’t it make you feel good when it’s all done? I bought some Stamp-n-Storage ink pad cabinets and the ribbon holders. What a difference! 🙂 Have a great week!

    1. Thank you Bobbi! Yes, I thought it needed a little something and I do like a little snip! I will show pictures of the Stampin’ Galley when I get it a little more organized! I love when the organization is all done! It never really is though! LOL! I with I had room for the Stamp-n-Storage! You have a great week too! 🙂

  8. You know, Justin, I was sitting in church Sunday and I looked at the piano player’s polo and I thought to myself, “His shirt is most definitely Blackberry Bliss!” How ’bout that!? I’m getting hooked.
