Hello everyone! I can’t believe it’s Monday already. Where did the weekend go?! Did you all have a good weekend? I had a nice Sunday, some shopping, some crafting. My aunts also arrived yesterday evening and we all had dinner together. I love having so much of my family around. My other cousins arrive soon, one on Wednesday and two more on Thursday. I’m really looking forward to having everyone all together it’s going to be so much fun!
Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. Nance has given us a clean and simple banner challenge this week…
I thought this would be an excellent opportunity to use the Merry Minis again! The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of River Rock, definitely one of my more neglected colors. I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce the outline of the Decorative Label Punch and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I Punched out a piece of Raspberry Ripple with the Decorative Label Punch and pierced the oval in the center. The Christmas Cheer is from the Sweet Essentials Stamp Set and is stamped in Raspberry Ripple on Very Vanilla. I pierced the top and bottom and flagged the ends before adhering it to the Decorative Label and that is then adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The banners are cut from Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green. The Gumball Green banners are pierced along the top and they are all adhered to the card with SNAIL. I stamped the ornaments and trees from the Merry Minis Stamp Set in Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple and punched them out with the Merry Minis Punch Pack. They too are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I’ so glad that I got the Merry Minis set, it has proven to be a versatile and fun addition to my cards. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Paper Players Challenge card. Thank you very much for visiting and have a nice day!
