Paper Players 178

Posted on

Well, I made it back to New York safely from Houston yesterday! Everything went smoothly, which is always nice. Andrew pulled up outside the airport right as I was walking out and we headed to Manhattan and met up with Kim for some lunch. After, Andrew and I wandered around a bit and then headed home. I did manage to snap a few pictures from the plane yesterday. I got a nice one of Houston as I was leaving and some good ones of New York right before we landed.


Good by Houston.


Hello Freedom Tower!


And there is Citi Field.

I was happy to sit down at my craft desk and make my Paper Players card for this week’s color challenge from LeAnne…

Paper Players #178

I will admit, I was little stumped when I first saw the color challenge. They definitely aren’t colors that I would normally put together! The base of my card is Pear Pizzazz Card Stock and I angled the top to make it look like a tag. The background is a piece of paper from the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack and I used the Finishing Touches Edgelits along the bottom. A strip of Primrose Petals is embossed with the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The two large hearts are cut out from Crushed Curry and Primrose Petals using the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies and the smaller heart is punched out with the Full Heart Punch. The large Crushed Curry heart and the smaller Primrose Petals heart are both embossed with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder**. The arrow is from the Label Card Thinlits Dies and is cut out of a piece of Coastal Cabana. I cut it in half to make it look like it was going through the heart. My greeting is from the Just Sayin’ Stamp Set, is stamped in Primrose Petals, and cut out with the Word Bubbles Framelits Dies. The tiny heart is punched out from a piece of Crushed Curry with the Small Heart Punch and finishes off the card. This was definitely an interesting color combination, but when it’s all said and done I think the card came out nice! Thanks so much for stopping by to see my card for this week’s Paper Players color challenge from LeAnne. I’ll have a few more pictures from Leadership for you tomorrow. I hope you enjoy your Monday! 🙂

  5. Glad for your safe return but sad that your fun trip is over so quickly. Love the photos and the one of Manhattan with the Freedom tower is pretty awesome. The card must have taken forever with all those elements. However, the result is pretty dang neat. Don’t know how you think to put all that together.

    • Thank you Bobbi! I’m happy you enjoyed the very non-traditional Valentine’s card and the pictures! I had the best time and you must get to NY, it’s a place everyone should see at least once. Thanks so much for stopping by! 🙂

  13. What an adorable card and great used of the colors! I love the textured and layered hearts and that little arrow is adorable. Wish I had that die. It’s always a pleasure to see you playing along with us at The Paper Players! {hugs}

  14. Love what you did with my colors, Justin! I was admiring the arrow and I realized….I HAVE THAT die! Woohoo, gonna play with that piece soon! Glad you had a good time in Houston and are safe back home! Thanks for playing with my Paper Player colors this week!
