Paper Players 171

Posted on

Yesterday was extremely windy here and it rained a little too. I did have a nice relaxing day. I puttered around the house in the morning and then met Heather and we did some shopping and had lunch. When I came back home I sat down and completed a few projects and listened to some music. All in all a very nice day. I hope that you enjoyed the pictures of Manhattan yesterday, I’m going to make an effort to included some people, possibly me, in some of the future pictures!

Since it’s Monday that means that it’s time to play along with the Paper Players again! This week we have a fall color challenge from clever Ann…

Paper Players #171

I was going to go along with the obvious and make a fall card but we all know how I like to go and do something unexpected! The base of my card is Tangerine Tango Card Stock and there is a layer of Crushed Curry on top of that. My background is created using the Filmstrip Stamp and some Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango and Chocolate Chip ink. With the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig lining them up was nice and easy. To cut down a little on the boldness of the background I created a frame with the Squares Collection Framelits from some Whisper White and used a piece of Vellum Card Stock as a background for my images. The frame is adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The flowers and bird are from the Morning Medley Host(ess) Stamp Set and are stamped in Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango for the flowers and the bird in Chocolate Chip. The flowers are punched out with the Pansy Punch and the bird is cut out with my Paper Snips. My greeting is from the Banner Greetings Host(ess) Stamp Set and is stamped in Chocolate Chip and also cut out with my Paper Snips. I stamped the Wish Big on the frame from the A Dozen Thought Stamp Set and a few sequins complete my card. I love the bold background but appreciate the way the vellum softens it so as not to take away from the images. Thank you so much for stopping by to se my Paper Players card for this week’s color challenge from Ann. Have as good a Monday as you can! 🙂

  1. Hi Justin and here we are again at Monday! LOVE the sequins! The colors are great and your use of the filmstrip stamp and the “poloroid” picture is clever. I think I speak for all of us when I say we would love to see you and your friends in the shots next time. You take great pictures! Hope your day is off to a great start!

    • Thank you Karen! I wish Stampin’ Up! had sequins in all of the Stampin’ Up! colors! I will definitely include some of my peeps the next time! My day went well and I hope that yours did too!

  2. A really pretty and cool card at the same time, Justin! Love the photo frame and your expertly stamped background. Great use of the challenge colors, love it!

  3. Really like how you ‘mocked’ the photo frame with the filmstrip stamp. I have yet to use it. I’ve seen the polaroid sketch quite a bit lately. Truly enjoy your photos of your outings with your friends. Did I mention your card is great! Keep them coming!

  4. Boy Justin – you stamped that film strip stamp perfectly – WOW! I usually gravitate toward CAS cards and that is also pretty much my style. This card is very intricate and has a lot going on yet I LOVE it! The colors say “good morning”, the intricacy of the design shows how artistic and talented you are and the overall impression is impressive indeed. Fabulous card.

  5. Very clever! I love the vellum “window,” the colors, the layout, really everything about this card! It screams creativity. Great job!!! Also love the pictures, I’m from the “left coast” (Oregon) it’s fun to see what the other side looks like…..keep em coming.

  6. What an awesome card Justin! I love everything about it. Happy Monday. 🙂

  7. WOW! I really like this card and now have added the filmstrip stamp to my list. It’s funny how you first think you don’t need a stamp and then you want it now. This is a great card and will certainly make the recipient very happy.

  8. WOW! Great card – love everything about it!

  9. These are so not my colors (not your fault), but I just love what you did with the filmstrip, vellum, and square frame. Your card makes for a perfect autumn birthday card for a camera or movie buff. At least this old dog appreciates your new tricks. Yes, including your friends and you in your photos would be a big hit. It’s fun to get to know our bloggers! Hope the rest of your week is restful and that Friday gets here quickly for you. Nancy B

    • LOL! Thanks Nancy! I’m glad that you saw past the colors! I will definitely include my friends in the future! I hope that all you said about this week is true! 🙂

  10. I love your card. The use of the vellum is something I’ve never seen before. Very clever. Everything goes together so well. I like different!

  11. love the colours, love the frame, love the filmstrip background, love the flowers, love,love,love!!!

  12. Love everything about this card. Will definitely be casing this one for either my cameras-collector hubby or my photographer-son with maybe a photo of the grandkids behing the vellum…. Always like your photos and it would be great to get to know your friends too.

  13. Justin, you are absolutely amazing! I don’t know where you come up with your ideas, but they are OUT of this world! The card is awesome! Donna

  14. Another winner! Gorgeous colors and composition!

  15. Justin, your cards are always a delight! I love how you used the Film Strip stamp. Of course, after seeing how you used it, it immediately went on my order. The vellum window reminded me of the old slides we used to view, and worked perfectly with the Film Strip image. Your creativity never ceases to amaze me! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players! Hugs!

  16. Absolutely amazing, caught my eye, pulled me in and begged for me to say hello!
    Awesome design and colors!
