Paper Players #96 and Sneak Peek

Posted on

Happy Monday morning to everyone! I had a very nice day yesterday. I ran some errands, enjoyed the beautiful weather and got to play with my stamp stuff too! Today’s card is for this weeks Paper Players. I was honored that I was Anne Marie’s Pick of the Week for last weeks Challenge! You can see the post here and visit the Paper Player site here. This week we are asked to use polkadots…

So I did just that, and a lot of them! The base of the card is Chocolate Chip Card Stock. I ran a piece of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock through my Big Shot using the Perfect Polkadots Texture Impressions Embossing Folder. The tiered cake image is from the Make A Cake* Stamp Set. The cake is stamped in Chocolate Chip and the flags and butterflies are stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I used the new Bitty Banners Framelits Dies* to cut out the smaller banners in Chocolate Chip and cut them in half with my Paper Snips and adhered them to the back of the Cherry Cobbler frame with SNAIL. To the back of that I added a piece of Chocolate Chip cut 1/8″ smaller than usual and offset it and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A piece of Chocolate Chip 1/2 Inch Scallop Dots Ribbon make the perfect item to attach the greeting that is from the Itty Bitty Banners* Stamp Set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies*. I love the rich color combination, you can almost taste the chocolate and smell the cherry cobbler! Thank you for stopping by and thanks to the Paper Players for their great challenges every week. Have an awesome day! 🙂

  4. Oooh, love this card! What a perfect stamp set for the polka dot theme this week! And such a fun idea to have the end of the banners peeking out from behind the image. Glad you joined in the fun at The Paper Players!
