Paper Players 163

Posted on

How was the weekend? Mine… not too bad. I went into Manhattan yesterday to see a friend, it was a beautiful day. Still a bit crisp but it did warm up. I think this is my favorite time to be in the city, you can walk around with overheating. I came home and did some puttering in the craft area, picked up my daughter from work and ran some errands. Monday, you just come way too fast!

My post for today is for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This time around Anne Marie has given us a CAS for the kids challenge…

Paper Players #163

I have had this idea in my head for a little bit and I thought this would be the perfect time to try it out. The base of my card is Basic Black Card Stock. The background is a piece of Smoky Slate. All of the images on the top half of the card are from the “Vintage” Out on a Limb Stamp Set. The branch, stamped in Early Espresso, and the cat, stamped in Basic Black, are stamped directly onto the background. The super cute little witch is stamped in Basic Black and colored in with my Blush Blossom, Pumpkin Pie and Pistachio Pudding Stampin’ Write Markers. I used Crushed Curry to stamp the broom and colored it in with So Saffron. She is then punched out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch and the edges are sponged in Smoky Slate. The two clouds are stamped in Smoky Slate and cut out with my Paper Snips. On to the idea part of my card. I stamped the greeting from the Delightful Dozen Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie. Using my Stampin’ Trimmer and the Rotary attachment I cut a piece of Gumball Green with the Perforating Stampin’ Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade and used some Sticky Strip to adhere it over the greeting. The spider web is from the “Vintage” Spooky Bingo Bits Stamp Set and the “pull” is stamped with the Designer Typeset Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie. Now here comes the fun part, you pull open the top to reveal the greeting underneath! What kid (or adult for that matter) wouldn’t want to do that?! Pretty cool huh?! Oh yes, there will be more of these!! Thank you very much for checking out my Paper Players card for this week’s CAS for the kids challenge from Anne Marie. I appreciate your visit and hope you have a zippy day! 🙂
