Paper Players 256

And Wednesday! Halfway there! Yesterday was another nice day here, lots of sun and really warm. I dropped Danielle off at her car across the street from the office after work, we had meetings so the parking lot was full. On my way home I ended up behind Michael who was on his way over to my house. He was out East with Renee visiting a store owner to pick up some things for Scrap-A-Latte and his store. He had all kinds of goodies and brought me some stuff too! We had some Chinese for dinner and watched some old music videos. We also discussed the cards for next week’s class. What a nice way to end the day!

The card that I have for you today is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

Paper Players #256

A nice easy one! I did end up making this card twice, I didn’t care for the original background that I had done and Michael agreed! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. All of the images and greeting are from the Simon Says Stamp One with Nature Photopolymer Stamp Set. The background is stamped in Simon Says Stamp Duckling Ink on Neenah Solar White 80lb and the greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black. I adhered the panel to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The trees are stamped in Simon Says Stamp Catkin and Cloudy Sky also on Solar White 80lb and then again heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum. I used the coordinating Simon Says Stamp Nature Dies to cut them out. The vellum trees have some Ranger Multi-Matte Medium and Ranger Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter sprinkled on them for some sparkle. The trees are then adhered to the stamped ones and then they are adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I love the graphic look of the stamp set and the colors are nice and subtle too! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thank you for taking a little time to stop by and visit with me! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
