Good Monday morning to you all. How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was great! A nice long weekend in Vermont with friends was just what I needed to re-charge the batteries a little. I had a nice ride home yesterday, I didn’t hit too much traffic. I was glad to see my parents, daughter and Winston when I got home! Thanks to Susan, Mina and Kim!
Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. This week LeAnne has given us a clean and simple wordsmith challenge…
I have been meaning to use some of my neglected colors a little more so I used some Sahara Sand and paired it with Primrose Petals. I really like the two colors together, they compliment each other nicely. The base of the card is Sahara Sand and I stamped it with the Parlor Prints Background Stamp in Primrose Petals. I used the Floral Frames Framelits Dies to cut out a piece of Primrose Petals Card Stock and adhered it to the card with SNAIL. The stamped image is from the From My Heart Stamp Set and is also cut out with the Floral Frames Framelits Dies. I think that it fits perfectly inside! I mounted that to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I used some Sticky Strip to attach a piece of Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon across the bottom and then used the “fork method” to tie the bow since I am bow challenged and used my Paper Snips to flag the ends. The tiny heart is punched out using the Owl Builder Punch from a piece of the new Champagne Glimmer Paper* from the 2012 Holiday Catalog and a small (really small!) piece of Stampin’ Dimensional adheres it to the stamped image. I used the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack to punch out another piece and a Mini Glue Dot to adhere it to the middle of the bow. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Paper Players Challenge card and that you are inspired to use some of your more neglected colors. Thank you so much for checking in and have a wonderful Monday! 🙂
