Paper Players 303

A very happy Friday to you my friends! It was a muggy one here yesterday! The Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was filled with happy people making their cards at the July Card Class featuring Reverse Confetti! We do have so much fun! Andrew and Kayleigh were back! So great to see them both! I had Blaze pizza for lunch and finished it for dinner. Right around 6:00PM it rained and thundered and lightening for about 30 minutes and that actually made the humidity worse. It was a drive home with the AC on kind of evening! I stopped by Heather’s for Thursday Thursday and Stephanie and Brian were there. Around 11:00 Heather had a craving for White Castle so her, Stephanie and I put the top down in the car and went to get some. We drove around like teenagers with the music up nice and high! When I got home around 12:30 I settled in to make a quick card for today. What makes me think that heat embossing and watercoloring is quick I’ll never know! LOL! Today we have the second day of card class and this morning I’m going to visit Taylor, her tonsillectomy went well but she misses her dad!

That “quick” card that I made last night is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

Paper Players #304

My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply some Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card. It’s flicked with some water and then blotted with a paper towel. To give it a little more interest I cut it out with the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Stackables Lawn Cuts and adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My flower is from the Altenew Beautiful Lady Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Ranger Platinum Embossing Powder onto another piece of Watercolor Card. I used Picked Raspberry and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks and a Water Brush to color it in. The Coordinating Die is used to cut it out and it’s adhered to the card with Foam Tape and Dot Runner. My greeting is from the same set and is also heat embossed in Platinum. I flagged the right and tucked the left side under the stem. Some Hazel and Ruby The Makery Sparkle & Shine Sequins and a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins are added and the card is done! I do love that water spotted background and the flower from the Altenew Beautiful Lady Set is just gorgeous! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Color Challenge! Thank you very much for visiting with me today! Have a fantabulous Friday! 🙂

  1. Love this card. It certainly doesn’t look quick. I love the colors and your coloring makes it striking. Glad to hear Taylor’s tonsillectomy went well. Everything is better when dad’s around. I hope you have time today for a few deep breaths. You only have one speed and it is “wide open”. Too funny about you driving with the top down and music blasting!! Creating memories!! Have a wonderful day!

    1. Thank you HJ! It didn’t take too long, if I have it all laid out in my head it definitely goes quicker! Yes, Taylor’s surgery went well, she is juts not a very happy camper, not that I can blame her! I try to take some time everyday, even if it’s just 10 minutes to just sit and “be”. There is always too much to do! Our drive was lots of fun! Hope that you had a nice weekend! 🙂

  2. Glad your daughter is doing well…. I love the muted colors of this flower. Just came back from a relaxing night of scrapbooking. Early breakfast tomorrow with some old friends then I need to buckle down and clean house. Yuck! Take care

    1. Yes, she is cranky but good Linda! Thank you! They were fun colors to work with! Ahh, a night of Scrapbooking! FUN! I love that you see your old friends so much! House cleaning… It will still be there! LOL! 🙂
