Paper Players 367

Hello! I hope that you all had a nice weekend! Mine was great! Saturday I went over to Jim’s and we worked on some projects, fishing the last of the chairs and putting legs on the end table that we made, along with a few others. I had to go and pick up Taylor from the train around midnight, she said that she had a wonderful time in Massachusetts and can’t wait to go back! Yesterday I did a little cleaning and then Jim stopped by in the evening for a bit and we watched some more of Ozark. This morning I’m playing catch up on a few things, it’s a Monday for sure! 😀

I’m staring the week off with my card for the Paper Players challenge! But before I get to that I want to thank Laurie for choosing me as her headliner for last week’s challenge! You can see my original post HERE and the winners post HERE. Now for this week they have a sketch…

Hero Arts had a little sale last week and I couldn’t resist! Sometimes I have the idea for the card in my little brain and this is what my desk looked like when I started my card…

To start I stamped the squirrel from the Hero Arts Color Layering Squirrel Photopolymer Stamp Set in Wet Cement, Soft Granite and Charcoal using my Mini MISTI. The peanut is stamped in Wet Cement and Cup O Joe. I used the Coordinating Frame Cuts to cut them out. Next I used my Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Background Stamp to stamp a piece of Desert Storm 80lb in Wet Cement, a piece of Smoky Slate with Soft Granite and a piece of Basic Gray with Charcoal. The Desert Storm piece is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I flagged the end of the Smoky Slate piece and added that and then heat embossed a greeting from the set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto the Basic Gray piece and added that. My squirrel and peanuts are adhered with 3D Foam Squares and the card is done! I love that squirrel! I think this would make a fun masculine card, maybe even for a birthday! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you for beginning another week with me! Have an absolutely awesome Monday! 🙂

  3. I love your cute squirrel Justin and the neutral tones of your card but the blending of the three woodgrain panels is the subtle standout on this card. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!
