Paper Players 280

Yesterday was a long day! The airport in the morning, Scrap-A-Latte for a bit, over to see my friend Sue and then take Heather to the train. I’m not gonna lie, I’m a little tired! It also rained here most of the day but it was warm so no complaints. Today I need to get some organizing done and then tonight is thirsty Thursday!

For my card today I have used this week’s Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe board for inspiration…

Paper Players #280

I want to thank Hannelle for choosing me as her Cut Above for last week’s challenge! You can see the winner’s post HERE and my original post HERE!

The card base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb cut to 3 1/2″ wide. I cut a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card to 3 1/4″ wide and used my Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Tumbled Glass, Wild Honey and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink to create the somewhat evening sky looking background. It’s spritzed with some water and then adhered to the card with SNAIL. My bird and branch are form the Hero Arts Color Layering Dimensional Bird Photopolymer Stamp Set. The outline is stamped in Onyx Black Ink and I used Simon Says Stamp Rosie Cheeks, Teeny Bikini, Schoolhouse Red, Duckling, Slate and Khaki Ink to fill in the colors. For the eye I used a Sakura Black Gel Pen and Uni White Gel Pen. He is cut out with the coordinating Dies and adhered to the card with Multi-Matte Medium And Foam Tape. The greeting is from the Hero Arts Thanks Stamp & Cut Set and is also stamped in Onyx Black. A little shower of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins from the top right completes the card. So, I went down the middle row! I love that bird and the easy way that you can add different colors to him! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy your Thursday! πŸ™‚

  1. Hi Justin,
    LOVE this card. The bird is beautiful (love his colors)! And the background of the card is so pretty. The sequins are the perfect touch. Have a good day!

    1. Hello Gerri!
      Thank you so much! He’s a nice bright happy bird and I had fun making the background, nice and simple! You have a spectacular day! πŸ™‚

  2. What a fabulous background Justin! Perfect for your perfectly coloured pink bird. This is really beautiful – thanks for joining us again over at The Paper Players this week!

  3. Now hold on a minute Justin – are you telling me the bird isn’t cut out of a bunch of DSP? If that’s right all I can say is a great big WOW! This is a beautiful card and the bird is just amazing. You did a fantastic job on this one and congrats on being chosen for last week.

    Take it easy today. Catch up on some rest and relaxation so that you aren’t too warn out for Thirsty Thursday! It’s a blah day here today but the weatherman says the sun will come out this afternoon. I’m running errands today so I’m really not thrilled. I don’t like running errands but, oh well, you gotta’ do what you gotta’ do. Have yourself a terrific day and enjoy your evening. Love & Hugs, XOXO πŸ™‚

    1. Nope Grace! It’s all separate stamps that’s why I love that set! Thank you!
      I did sleep in a bit and fell much better today! The sun is supposed to make an appearance today, we’ll see! Hope that you have a great day! Love and hugs to you! XOXO πŸ™‚
