Paper Players Color Challenge 34

Happy Sunday, peeps!  Today Jaydee is hosting our Paper Players challenge, and she has chosen a color challenge:

Challenge 34

I love these colors!  But they feel fall-ish and I didn’t want to do fall!  Then I remembered I had wanted to make one of those “ruffle” cards….you know, with the scalloped DP made to look like ruffles.  So here we go:

PP34

It’s pretty clean & simple; it didn’t take too long, although had I owned a big scallop border punch or die, it would have taken less time, I’m sure.  I used a 1 3/8” circle punch and punched circles of Cherry Cobbler and Cajun Craze Patterns DP, then layered the pieces along my card to make it look like big scallops!!!  The flourish & sentiment are both from Friends 24-7.  I just received a pretty card using this set, which reminded me it hadn’t been inked up for a while! (Thanks, Cheryl!)   Hope you can play along with us; just check out the Paper Players blog for all the details and the other samples!

  4. ooh! Love what you did with that stamp set, so simple and so stunning! And the sentiment really is so true. It is what stamping is really about, it is a description of the stamper's heart.
