Greetings peeps! How was the rest of your weekend? My Sunday was nice and quiet. I ran to Target in the morning with my friend Heather and then I spent the rest of the day crafting and running errands. I do love Sundays when they are like that. I didn’t have time to put together a video this weekend but I will eventually get to it! I did take another step towards moving my blog to the hosted account. Sometime in the next few weeks, when I have a minute or two, I will complete the transition. LOL! Probably later rather than sooner. I will keep you posted.
It’s Monday so that means it’s Paper Players time! This week we have a fun sketch from the lovely Anne Marie…
I was playing around with the “shimmer spritz” that I made the other day again. I also made a sunburst mask out of a Window Sheet. I thought that would be better because then I can reuse it. The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. My main panel is a piece of Whisper White that I spritzed my sunburst on using the mask and I backed it with a piece of Brushed Gold and Bermuda Bay. Next up is my strip of Bermuda Bay that I heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder using a stamp from the Background Builders Stamp Set. I tucked three Brushed Gold flags that I cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits under the left side. My ornament is from the Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set, I heat embossed it with Gold and cut it out with the Holiday Ornaments Framelits. Three “Vintage” Metallic 3/16″ Brads backed with Bermuda Bay are up in the left corner. My greeting is stamped in Bermuda Bay and is from the Endless Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set. The pictures don’t really show you how nice and shimmery the sunburst is and I really like the gold and Bermuda Bay together. I know, I have been using a lot of gold lately, we all have phases right?!?! Thanks for stopping by to see my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge. I hope you enjoyed the card and that your day is pretty awesome! 🙂
