Paper Players #51


Happy Sunday to everyone!  Another challenge from the Paper Players, and this week it’s a color challenge:

PP51 Color Challenge

Aren’t these fun, cheerful colors?  Now I understand that a couple weeks ago, our friends at Stampin’ Royalty chose the exact same colors—LOL!  Great minds think alike.  So we’d like to see a NEW creation—no fair using the same one!   Put on your creative thinking cap! 

I like this time of the year—the anticipation of the new sets and accessories coming out in the SU catalog, but I have to admit, I get bored seeing the same stuff used over & over again.  I know, I’m like a little kid, aren’t I?  So I have been trying to pull out some of my older sets and show them some love and give you readers something different to look at!  This set, Enjoy the Moment, probably hasn’t seen ink for over a year:


My upline, Pennie, recently gifted me with this wonderful die, Tasteful Trim!  Since our challenge colors this week are big and bold, I decided to use that big, bold rickrack too!  I added a few buttons, birdies and pompom trim, and I think this will make a fun graduation card for a special someone!  I stamped the “congrats” sentiment from Occasional Quotes in the challenge colors on the inside:

DSCF8055-1I am sad to see this little bird from the Merry Details diecut retire…..he is such a fun little guy!  I think I’ll keep him around anyway! 



Thanks for visiting today, and make sure you fly on over to the Paper Players blog to see what the other designers came up with, and play along with us too!




Here’s my little  “color challenge” girl today!  ALMOST crawling---watch out!

Oh I love your card today. BUT.... not as much...... as.... WHAT I got in the mail today. Thank you so very, very much. I got the two cards and the awesome diaper pins. You are so sweet! I am much better. Thank you so much.

Everything about your card is HAPPY! I love the bold trims, the sweet birds and it is nice to see that stamp set brought back to life. You completely reminded me that I need to dust it off! Eeek, once little Miss Cassidy is mobile you are going to REALLY have your hands full. She's SO cute!! :)

jaydee said...

OK... SO I am not going to tell you that I got totally distracted by the fabulous pics of Cassidy :-)
I love your bold choice of layout for the card. So unexpected. Love the double layers of polka dot rik rak border running vertically. (Thanks for reminding me to use mine!) Love the bold sentiment, too.
