It's Sunday and time for new challenges at The Paper Players and Sunday Stamps!

It is not often I can combine these challenges but, this week it worked out perfectly!   I hope you will play along with both challenges! 

The lovely Laurie is the hostess this week at  The Paper Players.  She has a Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us.  Her theme is "Blooms".  Remember in addition to the theme of "blooms", this week is a Clean-and-Simple (CAS) challenge!  What do we mean by CAS?
  • Minimal layers and embellishments
  • Plenty of open space, aka "white" space

    My card is created on a white card base.  I used the Concord and Ninth Hope Stamp Set to create my sentiment.  The Hero Arts Ombre Pink to Red ink was used to create the sentiment .  The flowers were created using the Altenew Peony Bouquet stamp set.  
    I used Altenew Dark and Dark Night Inks for the blue peonies.  The circles were stamped off using the ombre ink using the same stamp set.  A few sparkling clear sequins were added to complete my card.

    Just For You! PP#393

    May 13, 2018

    HAPPY MOTHER'S Day to all the Mom's!  I hope your day is special!  

    It’s Sunday and it's time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

    I am the hostess this week and I have a bold, bright color challenge for all of you!  You know I love vibrant colors and I can't wait to see what you create!  I did use flowers on my card, and I adore flowers, but I hope you will get create and show me some fun ideas!



    My card was created for my Mommy for Mother's Day.  She drinks a lot of tea and loves flowers, so I combined two of her favorites on her card.  My card is created on a white card base.  I used a Crumb Cake background.  It was cut with a scalloped die and embossed with the large polka dot folder.  The cup is from Uniko--I LOVE Tea stamp set.  I fussy cut the cup and then paper pieced a piece of Strawberry Slush card stock for the cup.  I embossed it with the small polka dot folder.  The tea was colored with Copic Markers.  The flowers are cut using the Stampin' Up!  Botanical Blooms framelits.  I love this set!  It makes such gorgeous blooms!   I used all the colors in the color combo for the flowers and leaves.  Candy dots were added inside the flowers.  The sentiment was stamped in black and cut with a banner die.

    Tennis LOVE Sketch Saturday #513

    May 12, 2018


    It's time for a new challenge at Sketch Saturday!

    We have one of our favorites joining us as sponsor this week.



    The super prize offered this week is 
    a digital stamp of the winner's choice.

    ~~~~~~


    Here is sketch #513:






    My card is created on a white card base.  This card is a 5 x 5 square.  I do not own any tennis paper and I found this digital paper on Etsy and copied it  I didn't even know you could do that.  It was so exciting. It is from Sports Printables. I love tennis and this is the only tennis stamp I own.  I beg the stamp companies to come out with some tennis stamps soon!!!!!  I stamped and colored my image using Art Impressions Birthday Love stamp set.  I colored her with Copic Markers and added Wink of Stella for shine.  I used my new Scan N Cut Machine to cut her out.  I used Claire's ABC's stamps from Lawn Fawn to create the "LOVE" sentiment.  The word tennis is stamped using the Your Next Stamp Sports Fanatics Two  stamp set.  A button was added to complete the sketch.    


    Thank you for stopping by my blog!  Don't forget to visit all the DT blogs for lots of inspiration!  We sure hope you will play along with us!  


    HUGS!
