Paper Players 310

I saw a very funny post by a friend on Facebook yesterday, it said “I’m 100% sure that 70% of my work will not be completed today” and that was true for me! It was just one of those days where you have things to do but little motivation to do them. I think that we all need a not very productive day every so often. I’m sure that today I will wish that I had done more today but it will get done… eventually! I did help Elyse learn how to use her new Altenew Stamps yesterday. She stopped by the store with Nancy and we had a little mini lesson. Interacting with people and bringing out their creativity is by far the best part of my job! I know I say it a lot but the look on a person’s face when they do something that they didn’t think they could do is awesome! After dinner I did come home and make two cards, so the day wasn’t a total loss! We are supposed to get some rain today, we haven’t had any in a while so I guess we need it. Hopefully the long weekend will be good, the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store and Scrap-A-Latte are both closed on Sunday and Monday! Two day weekend! Woo hoo! LOL!

One of my cards that I made last night is for this week’s Paper Players challenge. A nice simple sketch from Nance…

Paper Players #310

My card starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, the front is covered in a piece of Ballerina Pink. The patterned paper is a piece of Blazing Floral from the Echo Park Summer Party 12×12 Collection. My greeting is the Concord & 9th Beautiful You Die, I cut it from Solar White 110lb three times and adhered them together with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. It’s then coated in Versa-Mark and heat embossed twice with Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder. The rest of the greeting is from the Concord & 9th Beautiful Words Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in more Copper onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. I flagged the left side, adhered the beautiful to it with more Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then used Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape to adhere the Vellum to the card. A sprinkling of Rose Gold, Sparkling Clear, Fresh Mint, Watermelon and Copper Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and the card is done! I love the way the greeting turned out with the dimensional beautiful and the rest heat embossed on Vellum! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thanks for your visit today! Have a terrific Thursday! 🙂
