You're The Coolest! --PP #350

June 25, 2017

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

We have a huge announcement today!  We are excited to welcome two new Guest Designers to our team: 


Deanne will remain as a GD for another term.  

A huge thank you to Crystal and Valentyna for being with us the last six months.  We all enjoyed their fabulous creations!  

Now, on to our sketch for this week.  The fabulous Nance is our hostess this week!  Her sketch is so versatile and can be used for any type of card.  We can't wait to see what you create!

My card is created on a white card base.  I used the MFT Balloon Strings background stamp.  I inked it with Versa Fine ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.  I used different shades of blue distress inks to create the watercolored background.  I wanted it to look like water.  I also used an old retired SU polka dot background stamp to create the side border.  I heat embossed it with silver embossing powder, too.  The little penguin and the tree are from MFT Penguins In Paradise stamp set.  I stamped them on Neenah Solar White and colored them with Copic Markers.  A white circle was cut with a stitched die and sponged for the penguins background.  Wink of Stella and clear sparkling sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added for shine and fun. 

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.

You Are the Best of the Bunch! Sketch Saturday #469

June 24, 2017

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

Our sponsor this week is Just Me Digital Stamps!  
The winner will select 3 digi stamps! 

I used the Boy With Flower digi stamp to create my card.  

My card is created on a white card base.  I used some patterned papers I found in my stash for the background.  I copied the little boy image on Neenah Solar White paper and colored him with Copic Markers.  I backed this image with a piece of yellow card stock.  Red enamel dots and Wink of Stella were added for fun.  I added some Pool Party twine around the card to complete the sketch.  The sentiment was part of the digi image.  No stamping on my card today! 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I love to hear from you!

Bikinis Are Like Fries--tttc003

June 23, 2017

I just found the Tic Tac Toe Challenge!  I am so excited!  I love to play with Tic Tac Toe boards and some of my favorite card makers are on this team!  

I am playing with the two diagonals.  Blue-Twine-Rectangle and Yellow-Twine-Bow!  That makes an X on the board. My card also fits the bottom row Yellow-Stitching-Rectangle!  

My card is created on a white card base.  I added a piece of Lost Lagoon behind my white stitched rectangle.   I stenciled a big bright yellow sun and a few puffy clouds.  I just received the SSS monthly kit Hello Summer.  It included this tiny little bikini die and I was dying to use it.  I can tell you this girl has not seen a bikini since I became a mother, but it is still a fun thought.  LOL!  And 
I agree "Bikinis are like fries---You Can't Have Just One!"   I created a little clothes line with twine and added two bows on the end of the line.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I hope you have a sunny day!
