Paper Players 369

A very good Monday to you all! I hope that you enjoyed the rest of your weekend! I had a nice Sunday despite the gloomy weather which has continued today. Some cleaning was done in the morning and then a few errands. I finished off the day by heading over to Jim’s and finishing up a few projects, we hung the TV on the wall and I set up a new router to make the internet a little better and much faster! This morning I have a lot of stuff to get done for the Fundraiser this Sunday. The weather definitely makes it a good day to sit in front of the computer! πŸ˜€

To start off the week I have my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge to share with you…

I have had the Sunny Studios Holiday Style Photopolymer Stamp Set since last year and I never had the chance to use it so I decided that it was high time that it saw some ink! I started by stamping the bells in Hippo and Black Licorice for the first two layers using my Mini MISTI. For the third layer I heat embossed them with Hero Arts Platinum Embossing Powder and then used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I stamped the greeting in Black Licorice and the pine branches in Noble Fir, JalapeΓ±o and Freshly Cut Grass. The bells are adhered to the card and the hooks are stamped in Black Licorice and that completes the card! I do love a layering set and this one is definitely going to be a favorite! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thanks so much for staring another week off with me! Enjoy your Monday! πŸ™‚
