Paper Players 170

Posted on

Oh weekend, why must you move so quickly?! Heather and I went to the walk yesterday morning but we had to leave early, it was freezing and Heather didn’t feel well. I came home and got some things done around the house and then my friend Lisa text me to see if I wanted to go to the movies. We had some dinner and then went to see Enders Game. It was a really good movie! I love science fiction and I really like it when there is a lesson hidden in there. If you enjoyed Avatar and District 9 I think you like Enders Game!

If it’s Monday then it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week Sandy has chosen a wildlife theme…

Paper Players #170

I wanted something simple and I knew which stamp I wanted to use so this is what I came up with. The base of my card is Midnight Muse Card Stock. All of my stamping is done on a piece of Very Vanilla. I stamped the Woodgrain Background Stamp in Sahara Sand. The deer is from the Remembering Christmas Stamp Set and is stamped in Midnight Muse. I used the Endless Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set for the greeting and the snowflakes, stamped in Midnight Muse too. Like I said, a very simple card. I love the images together with the Woodgrain Stamp and I have already expressed my love for the Endless Wishes Set! Thanks for stopping by to see my card for this week’s Paper Players woodland theme challenge from Sandy. Have a great Monday! 🙂

  1. Justin – the term “stunning” gets overused in card critiques, but THIS is stunning. The combination of colors is beautiful, and the snowflakes give the deer a gorgeous appeal. The ink coverage you got on that deer – it’s flawless. Nice card!

  3. Justin – I just love CAS cards and at Christmas time always looking at cards that I can make 10 or 20 of without spending a full night on each one. This card fits the bill. Although I don’t have this particular deer stamp you’ve shown me that simplicity can mean beauty in a Christmas card. Thanks.

  4. Very beautiful card. Very CAS , especially for sending to a man. Yes do share you tip on how to make a solid image so “covered” – I have read the tips on Brian’s blog, and tried it but I am not 100% happy with my results. Maybe you have an extra tip? Have a great week.

    • Thank Louise! I just always make sure and look at the stamp to check the ink and then give a good amount of pressure and leave it there for a second or two. Enjoy your week! 🙂
