Heartfelt Sympathy --PP #332

February 19, 2017

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.  The lovely Laurie is our hostess this week and she has a fun Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us.  



We can't wait to see what you create.  Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card so, that narrowed down the sentiments I could choose from. 



My card is created on a white card base.  I used a few pieces of DSP that I found in my box for this card.  I do not know where they are from.  SO sorry. I used the wood grain piece as a background.   The feathers were cut using a rectangle die and a long rectangle strip was placed across the middle of the card using a coordinating pattern.  The Winnie and Walter The Big, The Bold The Comfort die was used to cut the word "sympathy".  I cut it out five times for dimension.  The heartfelt was stamped using the matching stamp set.  I added a few sparkling clear sequins to finish my card. 



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.

Happy Spring The Heart Desires Challenge #9

February 15, 2017

I am back with my second card as the February Guest Designer at The Heart Desires Challenge!

I want to thank all the Design team members at the challenge for inviting me to play along with them!  They are such a talented group of designers that inspire me every week!  



I used the color combo and the bunny as my inspiration!  I had so much fun making this card.  I hope it will make you smile!  

There is still time to play along!!  Please join in the fun!


My card is created on a white card base.  The next layers is yellow.  I distressed the watercolor paper with Salty Ocean ink.  Then, I added embossing paste on top of the distressed ink using the Raindrops stencil from Simon Says Stamp.  I distressed some paper with green inks and cut them using the Lawn Fawn's Grassy Hillsides Borders.  The little girl, the umbrella and the bunny are from the Abby's Spring Showers from Simon Says Stamp.  I colored them with Copic Markers and cut them out with the matching dies.  I added glossy accents to her boots and Wink of Stella to her coat, hat and umbrella!  She is ready to dance in the rain!



Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!  Please leave a comment if you have time!  I love to hear from you!
