Paper Players #112

Posted on

Good Monday morning all. I’m actually liking Monday this week because my cousin comes from England today! As Kathy mention it’s the first time I have ever said that I liked Monday! It’s been two years since I have seen almost to the day. I can’t wait for 5:00! Now on to today’s post which is for this week’s Paper Players. It’s sketch number 112 and my birthday is the 12th, coincidence?! This week we have a color challenge…

I’m really liking these colors! I have used the Postage Due Stamp Set a lot, it’s one of my favorites, so I needed to come up with a different way to incorporate it and here’s what I did. The base of the card is Baja Breeze Card Stock. I used the Large Scallop Edgelits Die on a piece of Basic Black and then used the  Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folders to emboss it. I left it a little taller and adhered it to the bottom half of the card. I stamped the large image from the Postage Due Stamp Set in Basic Grey on some linen fabric. I took a piece of Crumb Cake and put Sticky Strip along the edge and pulled the fabric around the back and adhered it. Then I another piece of Crumb Cake cut slightly smaller the the back of that and used some SNAIL in the middle and Multipurpose Adhesive around the edges to prevent the fabric from fraying. I did the same process with one of the stamp images using Baja Breeze and adhered it to the main image with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. To attach it to the card I used some magnetic tape. The greeting is from the Sweet Essentials Stamp Set and is stamped in Basic Grey on Very Vanilla. I flagged the ends and adhered it to the card with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals. The best part is that you can take the main image off the front of the card and it becomes a refrigerator magnet! I also love the way the images look stamped on the linen. I hope that you enjoyed tis week’s Paper Players Challenge Card and that you are inspired to try something different. Thank you so much for visiting and for you comments. Have an amazing day!

  1. OH MY GOSH, this is fabulous! There is not one thing that I don’t love about this set and by stamping it on the fabric, you’ve taken it to another level! WOW! Thanks for sharing this and so happy you used the PP colors!

  2. Holy guacamole, this is fantastic Justin! Stamping on fabric is GENIUS and this stamp set is perfect for it. Love how it looks like a miniature canvas. Love everything about it and I’m so glad you shared it with us at The Paper Players!

  3. This ranks up there as one of the best cards I have ever seen! Thanks for sharing the stamping on fabric idea, I want to try that for sure:) I agree with Nance that the colors are perfect to use with the fabric technique and stamp set!

  4. This is awesome and quite cleaver too. I absolutely adore the stamping on the linen – what a nice soft look it gives the whole card. And to make that a magnet – sweet!!! A bonus card! Hope you have a great time with your cousin! Thanks for joining us again this week. I always look forward to your creations.

  5. Hi Justin! First of all…Happy Birthday (a little late)! I hope you had a great day! Next, I LOVE your project! The stamped image looks so cool on the linen fabric and such a cool idea to create the magnet. A fun gift idea and a way to enjoy the handmade goodness a lot longer. I think I need to break down and get that set. Thank you so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! 🙂

    • Thank you for the birthday wishes Anne Marie and I’m so glad that you liked my card! The fabric was fun and the stamp set is one of my favorites! Have a great day! 😉

  6. Wow!!!! I absolutely LOVE the effect that you made stamping on the fabric!!!! I bought this set and suffered buyers-remorse after. It is simply not my style. I went to Splitcoast looking for ideas to inspire me to use this set – and like it! You knocked me over with this project! Now, I need some linen fabric!!!! In the meantime, I wonder what I can come up with using my beloved Linen Background stamp!!! Thanks for the inspiration. And, Happy Belated Birthday!

    • Thank you Mary! I’m so glad you like the project. You could always use your Linen Background Stamp to make faux linen! 🙂

      Thanks for the birthday wishes too!
