Paper Players #123

Posted on

Ugh… it’s Monday already! That four day weekend just flew by and it’s less than a month until Christmas! I hope that all of you had a nice weekend and spent time with family and friends and got some shopping done. I spent some much needed time with my peeps and it was great!

Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Players. Jaydee has give a this nifty sketch to work with…

My card starts with a base of Pool Party Card Stock and on top of that is a piece of Raspberry Ripple. The main panel is stamped in Raspberry Ripple using the Daydream Medallions Stamp Set. I also stamped some images in Illuminate Glimmer Watermark but they are hard to see in the picture. The edges are made with Brushed Silver Metallic Paper and the Finishing Touches Edgelits and the panel is then adhered to the card with SNAIL. I cut the snowflakes out in Pool Party using the Snow Flurry Bigz Die. They are held together with some 3/16″ Metallic Brads. I thought they needed some bling so I put some Basic Jewels Rhinestones on them and the adhered them to the panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Merry Christmas is from the Greetings of the Season Stamp Set and is stamped in Raspberry Ripple. I flagged the ends and then placed a piece of Pool Party that I cut out using the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit Die behind it. Both pieces are adhered to the card with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. I’m really liking the Pool Party and Raspberry Ripple together and the snowflakes are great with their little extra sparkle. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Paper Players Sketch Challenge card. Thank you for checking in with me and I hope that you enjoy your day!

Festival Keepsake Medallions Christmas

Posted on

Good morning! Have we all recovered from Thanksgiving/Black Friday? I hope so! I had a very nice day yesterday. I went to the movies with my friends Kim and Heather and then we all had some lunch and just hung around and chatted. Heather and I ran to the Body Shop because they had 3 for $30 and I love the Body Shop. Some Starbucks to round out the evening made it a great day!

For today’s post I made a Christmas card that I created on chevron Friday as I will call it. The base of the card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I stamped a piece of Very Vanilla with the Daydream Medallions Stamp Set in Primrose Petals and Real Red. The Real Red is real hidden as the strips of the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack cover most of it. I paired the DSP with some First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper. Both are cut out in a chevron pattern. Before adhering them to the base I used the Simply Scored Scoring tool to score some lines around the edges. The ornament is from the Keepsake Ornaments Stamp Set and is stamped in Primrose Petals and cut out with the Holiday Ornaments Framelits Collection. I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the card. The greeting is from the Family Reunion Stamp Set and is stamped in Real Red. I often forget that there are some other stamps in there besides the family ones! I love the chevron pattern over the stamped image and the simplicity of the large ornament. I hope that you enjoyed today’s card. I appreciate your visiting with me and I hope that you enjoy the rest of your weekend. 🙂
