Paper Players 176 & Peeks

Posted on

Now that was a fun and busy weekend! I spent most of the day yesterday catching up on projects and I’m much further along than I thought I would be but I still have much to do! It was a pretty nice day here, the sun even peeked out for a little while. First today, I want to wish my friend Brian King a very Happy Birthday today!! 🙂

On another note, I was outside last night and I took the picture below. It looks a little creepy no?!

For as good as the iPhone 5 camera is, night shots is not one of it’s strong suits! Kind of eerie though!

Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week the super talented Sandy has given us a WOW (White on White) challenge…

Paper Players #176

I can’t remember the last time, if ever, I did a white on white card. The only card stock that I used on the card is Whisper White. I did emboss a piece with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder ** for the layer in between my base and front panel. Speaking of the front panel all of the stamped images and greeting are from the Happy Congratulations Stamp Set* and are stamped in Encore Gold Metallic except for the lanterns. The lanterns are heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum Card Stock and punched out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. I hid some Stampin’ Dimensionals behind them to adhere them to the card and give it a little more depth. I had a lot of fun making my White on White card for the challenge. The picture doesn’t really show how nice and shiny the lanterns are and how pretty the gold ink looks. Thank you for coming by to see me and my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge. I hope you enjoyed my take on the challenge and that you have a very great Monday! 🙂
