Paper Players 118

DSCF0098
Happy Sunday, everyone!  Hope you’re having a great weekend so far.  With the rain and dampness on Friday, I woke up yesterday with a massive sinus headache…..not fun for a Saturday!  Thankfully, I had my Paper Players card all ready for you!!!  Anne Marie has a real fun CAS challenge for us today:
I wish I had some “glasses” stamps—that would have been fun, wouldn’t it?  But I resorted to a card using my Holiday Collection framelits and some Stitched In Color ribbon in Gumball Green:

Obviously, you have seen this technique around blogland---I am not even sure where I saw the first one, but it is not my idea, so thank you to whoever came up with it!  I used some Real Red Polka Dot Parade DP, and mounted it on a piece of cardboard for some strength, diecutting the tree out of both pieces separately and gluing them together.  I covered a little piece of cardboard with the ribbons, then placed it behind my “frame” with some dimensionals, then mounted the whole shebang with dimensionals on my card front:

I also added a little piece of narrow stitched ribbon in Early Espresso for the trunk!  Some glimmer accents finished off my CAS card.  I actually made another card for this challenge first, but decided it wasn’t CAS enough….I’ll post that later in the week.  I hope you’ll play along with this fun challenge over at the Paper Players blog…where you can see all the designers’ creations!

Last week, when my stepson came to visit, we walked up to my brother’s house…he lives behind us and we walk through the woods to get there.  Cassidy decided we were taking too long, so she took my brother’s hand and said “home”…….so he stopped what he was working on, and took her home!

My little Kodak is about to give up the ghost….hence the not-so-hot photos!  But thanks for visiting anyway!

Beautiful CAS card, LeAnne! The ribbon tree is so pretty! I've seen this technique around too but never attempted it yet. Love the look!!!

Darling pictures! That would be such a pretty walk!

Love this card! I like that look with the ribbon too. Have wanted to do that for a while, but just haven't. This one works so good - and like the added touch of the EE ribbon for the trunk.

Your card is so pretty. The ribbon tree is gorgeous. I love how you used the negative from your framelit as your frame.
I hope your headache clears very quickly.

Adorable - both your card with the ribbons used and Cassidy! She sure looks like she's grown up tremendously in the space of a month!

What a festively fun CAS card, LeAnne! Love how you used the ribbons to create the framed tree. The popped up dimension is a great touch. Of course, you can't go wrong with those little spots of sparkle, either. Fabulous take on my frames challenge this week! Big hugs! :)

Fun and cute, LeAnne! And this describes both your card and Cassidy! What a blessing to have such an adorable granddaughter in your life!

Oh I've been "die-ing" to try this technique! Love your ribbon tree and the sweet little star. All that fun DSP really lets the tree pop! And the extra bit for the trunk is an amazing detail!!

I love the creative use of ribbon in the cut out.

Thanks for your lovely comments on my entry this week - the embossing folder I used is by cuttlebug and I believe it's called snowflake dots. Hope that helps.
