Ahh, Sunday morning is so much nicer in the Hampton’s! LOL! It is really relaxing out here, very quiet and woodsy. My friend has a lovely little house on a very quiet street. We went to see another friend yesterday and she lives on Bluff Road, you can see and hear the ocean from her house. It is a different world out here and it’s only an hour and a half drive (off season with no traffic!) from where I live. If you are ever in the area it’s definitely a must see place! Here is a picture of the sunset last night…
Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Players and we have a fun CAS Masculine challenge from Ann…
I decided to use one of my favorite sets from the Spring Catalog and some of the new In-Colors. The base of my card is Costal Cabana* Card Stock. I used a piece of adhesive cork sheet in the middle and flagged the bottom. The main panel is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar* using the Beyond Plaid Stamp Set backed with some Baked Brown Sugar* Card Stock. The watch is from the Dapper Dad Stamp Set and is heat embossed with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The center dial is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar* and cut out with my Paper Snips. For the greeting I used the From My Heart Stamp Set and cut it out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. Dapper Dad, I think is one of the best masculine stamp sets we have had and I love the way the watch looks embossed. Thank you very much for stopping by to see my Paper Players Guest Designer card for this week’s CAS Masculine Challenge from Ann. Don’t forget to visit the Paper Players blog to see what the rest of the amazing design team have come up with. I hope that you have a very nice 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!
Stampin’ Up! has released their first Photopolymer Stamp Set! It’s called Designer Typeset!
