Good morning! How are we all faring with the weekend so far? Mine is going well, I brought an iPhone back to life last night for a clumsy friend of mine! Manhattan was nice yesterday and I drove in and no traffic! It’s like winning the Lotto, there is always traffic here. So, how did you all like the Control Freaks Blog Tour last night?! I thought it was a pretty awesome tour! If you want to check it out again you can click here.
Seeing as it’s Sunday that must mean it’s time for another Paper Players Challenges! Congratulations to Stacey and her Cowboy card for being my choice for Cut Above last week! For this week’s challenge the lovely Jaydee has given us this Clean and Simple sketch…
I figured that after my really feminine card the other day I needed something really masculine! LOL! I started my card off with a base of Not Quite Navy Card Stock. The background is created with a piece of River Rock… I don’t think I have used River Rock in forever… anyway… that I embossed with the Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The main panel is stamped with an image from the Beyond Plaid Stamp Set. I used my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the pattern perfectly so it looks like one big stamp. For the watch I used the Dapper Dad Stamp Set. The dial is stamped in River Rock and the band in Soft Suede. The dial is mounted to the band and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is form the Cross My Heart Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede. I trimmed it up with my Paper Snips and used some Stampin’ Dimensional pieces to adhere it to the card. What man would not want to get a nice clean masculine card like this one for their birthday?!?! I love the stamp and embossing folder coordination and the River Rock looks nice with the Not Quite Navy. I hope that you enjoyed my Paper Players Guest Designer card for this week’s challenge from Jaydee. Don’t forget to stop by the blog and see what amazing cards the other talented designer have come up with and enter one of yours so I can see! I hope you have a nice rest of your weekend. 🙂
