Another weekend over and done with. No complaints from me, I had a nice weekend. Yesterday I kind of just hung around the house in the morning and made a card or two, or three. I should have cleaned a bit but I just wasn’t feeling it. I did end up going out with Heather for a while. We stopped by to see our Friends Neal and Steph’s and then headed out to Sonic for lunch. I have had a craving for a while! I got a bacon and cheese hot dog on a pretzel bun, everything should come on a pretzel bun! It was delicious. We stopped at Target on the way home and picked up some lunch for the week. I decided that I wanted to watch a movie last night so I sat down and put on Unknown with Liam Neeson. It was pretty good and I almost made it thorough the entire thing without being interrupted! LOL! Now we are back to the start of another week, one that will hopefully be a good one!
It’s Monday and that means that it’s time for the Paper Players challenge. I also have my card for the Pals Paper Arts challenge too since I used last week’s colors when I made my card on Saturday! Duh! First we’ll do the Pals Paper Arts card which is based on this week’s colors…
I did a tall skinny card just for fun! The card base is Tangelo Twist and my background is a piece of Basic Black. I used the Confetti Stars Border Punch on the right side and adhered it to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My tag is a piece of Very Vanilla, the top is punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the bottom corners are rounded with the Project Life Corner Rounder. I stamped the pumpkins and leaves from the Fall Fest Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tangelo Twist and Old Olive. The Fun Fall Framelits cut them out and Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere the leaves to the pumpkins and the pumpkins to the tag. The greeting is form the “Vinatge” Delighful Dozen Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I threaded a piece of black hemp twine through the top and adhered the tag to the card with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals. A nice clean bright Halloween card and my little ceramic berry basket matches perfectly!
My card for this week’s Paper Players is based on these colors from the challenge…
I didin’t want to do another Halloween card so I went the complete opposite direction. This card starts with a base of Hello Honey Card Stock. I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out a window from a piece of Very Vanilla. My greeting is from the Really Good Greetings Stamp Set and is stamped in Mossy Meadow. I adhered the cut out panel to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The flowers are from the Stippled Blossoms Stamp Set and are stamped in Tangelo Twist for the base and Tangerine Tango for the shadows. A little time with my Paper Snips and they are ready to be adhered on top of the Mossy Meadow leaves that I cut out with the Flower Frenzy Bigz L Die. To finish off the card I stamped a butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set in Tangelo Twist, punched him out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch and adhered him to the card with a Glue Dot. I love that even darker fall colors can make a pretty flowery card!
