Because It's Too Early For Wine--PP #354

July 23, 2017

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

The fabulous Jaydee is our hostess this week and she has an amazing sketch for all of us.  I had so many ideas, so I know that I will use this sketch again!  Have fun and we can't wait to see what you create! 






My card is created on a white card base.  I used a stencil and some distress inks to create my background.  I adhered a black rectangle and a lime rectangle on top of my stenciled background.  The sentiment is stamped in black and is from SugarPea Designs 
The Perfect Blend stamp set.  The cups are stamped in black using the Caffeine Addict stamp set and Coffee To Go Dies by SugarPea Designs.  Two pieces of summer DSP were added on the coffee cups.  Buttons with white twine thread were added for fun!  A bright and summery card to brighten a friend's day!  



Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.

My card is created on a white card base.  I used the Reverse Confetti Leaves Cover Panel to create the frame using white card stock.  I cut a piece of black card stock to mount behind it.  I stamped the words "love & hugs" with Versa Mark ink and embossed them with white embossing powder.  The sentiment "Sending" was cut four times with Real Red and adhered together for dimension.  Wink of Stella was added for shine.  The flowers were stamped using My Favorite Things Doodled Blooms and cut out with the matching dies.  I colored in part of the flowers with a red Copic Marker.  A few black enamel dots were added for fun.

My card is created for my precious Robert's 3rd birthday.  I always call him my little pirate.  I used a white card base and found a piece of red and white striped paper in my stash for the background.  Black card stock stripes were cut to place on top of the stripes.  I added a white circle cut with SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Circle dies and embossed it with a striped embossing folder.  Then I cut an open banner for a frame using SU banner dies.  My little pirate and parrot are from My Favorite Things Party Like A Pirate stamp set and cut out with the matching dies.  I colored them with Copic markers and added Wink of Stella for shine.  The sentiment is from the same set and heat embossed in white powder.  A few enamel dots were added for fun.
