Paper Players 286

Happy St. Paddy’s Day! I celebrated a little early with Brian last night, hence the late post this morning! LOL! Yesterday I went over to Scrap-A-Latte and got most of my stuff cut for class and got to see Renee for a bit. She left early so I stayed and locked up. I had some dinner when I got home and then Brian and I took a ride to Brooklyn to get one of our friend’s cars. He’s a fireman and will be going to the parade today so he didn’t want to drive home later. After we dropped off the car at his house we went to Riley’s so Brian could eat and we ended up having a few beers to celebrate! I’ll be heading over to Scrap-A-Latte for class later on. I get to see Danielle and Andrew, they will be at tonight’s class! Yay!

Today I have my card for this week’s Paper Players color challenge…

Paper Players #286

I don’t know why but when I see a bunch of bold colors like these I somehow always try and just use those colors! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I covered the front with a piece of Calypso Coral. Next, I took the Simon Says Stamp Present Shaker Craft Die and cut it out from a  piece of Bermuda Bay and Black 110lb. The Black is trimmed out to be the frame for the present and is adhered to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. I adhered a piece of Acetate to the back of the Bermuda Bay and then some Foam Tape to create my well for the shaker goodies! To fill up the shaker part I used a little Recollections Mini Black Star Glitter and some Teal Glitter that I got from Target. It’s sprinkled on the card and then the front panel is adhered over it to seal it in. A piece of American Crafts Black Glitter Paper is then cut out with the bow from the die set and adhered with Multi-Matte Medium. Finally, my greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Balloons Photopolymer Stamp Set is stamped in Onyx Black across the top. A fun simple shaker card that would work well for just about anyone! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Color Challenge. Thanks for coming by today and I wish you all very happy Thursday! 🙂

  1. Good morning, Justin. Your card is very nice today. I love the diecut present with the glitter paper bow which makes a great shaker box. You’re right about it could be for anyone. You continue to amaze me with how much you can get into your days. Have fun at the class tonight.

    1. Hi HJ!
      Thank you! That die is pretty cool and I like that it comes with the bow too! I do try to make the most of every day! Class was great! Have a super day! 🙂

  2. Hi Justin!

    When I looked at your card I thought that the bow was black card stock with Wink of Stella on It. My thought was boy, Justin can really get that stuff on a thin line! I agree with both HJ and Donna………it’s a really neat shaker card and yes, it could be for anyone, even a little kid. That kind of card design is hard to come by but, by George, you’ve done it! LOL Love it.

    Boy, it’s really great that you go to a stamp store (Stamp A Latte) and end up closing the place up. That would cost me a fortune! Renee is really lucky to have you to rely on when she needs a break. I’m sure your class tonight will be great fun, can’t wait to see what you are going to do. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you and all your Peeps. Love and Hugs and wishes for a Terrific Thursday! XXOO 🙂

    1. Hey Grace!
      LOL! Sometimes the old standby glitter paper is the best way to go! I do like that die, make the shaker part nice and easy!
      It’s not cheap for me to be at Scrap-A-Latte either! But I’m glad that I can help out Renee, 7 days a week is too much for anyone! Class was great and I’m looking forward to tonight’s one too! I hope that you enjoyed your St. Patrick’s day! Love and hugs to you! XOXO 🙂
