Hello there! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, how has your weekend been. Mine has been stellar! I had off of work on Friday and I crafted for about nine hours yesterday. It rained almost all day so it was the perfect day to be creative. I plan on being crafty again today too! It’s Sunday so that means its time for this week’s Paper Players!
This week we have a color challenge from Jaydee…
I have to admit that I had a little trouble with these colors at first. I decided that I would use some new goodies to jump start the creative juices. The base of the card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I cut off 1 1/2 from the front after I used the Distressed Dots Background Stamp. The panel on the right is embossed with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The paper on the left is from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack. The greeting is from the Label Love Stamp Set* and is punched out with the Artisan Label Punch*. All of the large postage stamps are from the Postage Collection Host(ess) Stamp Set* and the small ones are from the Lovely Little Labels Stamp Set, I let them hang over the edge for a little something different. The Postage Collection set is great because it’s a builder set, you can make the stamps the way you want. I was inspired by my friend Sandy to cut off some of the front of the card, it’s a nice change from the usual. I hope that you enjoyed my Paper Players Guest Designer card for this week’s color challenge from Jaydee. Thanks again for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your Sunday! 🙂

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!
