Paper Players #86

Posted on

Good morning and welcome to Wednesday, we are halfway there people! For this weeks Paper Players they give us a color challenge…

And what a great combination of colors it is. I love Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder and Crumb Cake. I will miss Pear Pizzaz when it retires in a few months too. I also did something that I never usually do, my card today has a very vintage feel to it. I sponged everything in Crumb Cake. The base of the card is Pool Party. I took some Wisteria Wonder and ran it through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Texture Impressions Embossing Folder. The sponging on it really makes the design shine through. I rounded the corners with the 1″ Circle Punch on the card and background. The stamp is from the set Up In the Air (Host(ess)) from the Occasions Mini Catalog and is stamped in Black Staz-on Ink. I colored in the flowers with my Stampin’ Write Markers using Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzaz. I then stamped the birdhouse again on crumb cake and popped it up on a Stampin’ Dimensional. The backing for the image is Crumb Cake and I flagged the ends with the 1 3/8″ Square Punch and rounded the other side with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. The strip across the middle is Pear Pizzaz with a piece of Crumb Cake 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon across it. I mounted the image with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals and there you have it, Paper Player Challenge #86. Thank you, as always, for stopping by and enjoy your day!
