Paper Players #121

Posted on

Monday here again so soon, I really do wish the weekend was just a bit longer. Things seem to have returned to normal here on Long Island. The mass hysteria about gas has subsided and most people have power again. My heart still goes out to all of those that lost so much more than power. The only thing to keep in mind is that time erases most things, in time all will get better.

Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. This week the wonderful Anne Marie has give us a color challenge to play with…

As soon as I looked at it saw a nice Holiday card. We have some red and green, even some gold! The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I used my En Français Background Stamp inked in Old Olive for my background. The flagged pieces consist of a layer of More Mustard embossed with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. On top of that is a piece from the Brights Collection Designer Series Paper Stack. The final layer is Very Vanilla stamped with a greeting from the Word Play Stamp Set in Bravo Burgundy. The image is from the Bells & Boughs Stamp Set and is stamped in Basic Black. I used my More Mustard, Bravo Burgundy and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers to color the image in. It is then cut out with the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies and pierced with the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool. I used the Window Frames Collection Framelits to cut out a piece of Bravo Burgundy to back it. Both pieces are mounted to each other and the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I like the vintage feel you get form the Bells & Boughs Stamp and the En Français Stamp. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. Thank you for visiting today and have great Monday! 🙂
