Paper Players 363

Another Wednesday under our belts! I had a semi-productive day. Got a few things done in the morning and then did some laundry. It was another warm day, we had a little rain in the evening for a few minutes but all in all a good day! I stopped by my friend’s house and dropped off their newly formatted MacBook and helped them finish setting it up. The rest of the evening was spent relaxing and watching a little TV. I did watch the new episode of This is Us yesterday morning, man is that a good show! Today I’m off to spend some time with Sue! 😀

I got me a new Hero Set yesterday and decided to use it to make my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I began by stamping the images from the Hero Arts Color Layering Poppy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pale Tomato, Raspberry Jam, Red Royal and Black. The closed ones are stamped in Forever Green. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out and then stamped the stems in Forever Green onto piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My card base is the same and has a piece of paper from the DCWV Maps, Text & Ledgers Paper Pad adhered as the background. Some Fun Foam and E-Z Runner holds the panel with the flowers to the card. My greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Black, I flagged the ends and adhered it to the card with 3M Foam Tape. I love the poppies and the unexpected vintage paper for the background! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Sketch Challenge! Thank you for visiting! Have an awesome Thursday! 🙂

  1. Beautiful card, Justin. I love when stamps have their own dies, which make it so easy. The DSP you used makes a really nice background. Have a great day!

    1. Thank you HJ! I too love when stamps have matching dies! Makes it so much easier! Hope you had a good day! 🙂

  2. Those Poppies are gorgeous Justin and I absolutely love the way you layered them onto the DCWV DSP paper. I agree with HJ that having matching dies with stamp sets makes things easier (especially with those of us with RA), but allows us to give our cards dimension which I love. Fabulous card and the ink colors are gorgeous.
    Trying to get some things done before the Hubs gets back from his trip but not being too successful. Strange how easily one can get distracted and find a way to procrastinate when the projects that need to be completed are NOT fun. LOL Have yourself a Terrific Thursday my friend. Love & Hugs to you. XXOO 🙂

    1. Thanks Grace! I do love them! I need to use them again!
      I get so easily distracted! It’s terrible! LOL! Love and hugs to you! XOXO 🙂

  3. Justin, the poppies are gorgeous! I love the beautiful script background and your sentiment is perfect! A lovely card! So happy you joined us at The Paper Players this week! XX

    1. Thank you Claire! I love that script background! Reminds me of the old Stampin’ Up! one! XX 🙂

  4. What beautiful red poppies Justin – they really stand out against the vintage-style background. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!
