Paper Players 138


Hi there, peeps!  Happy Palm Sunday to you all!  Anne Marie has an awesome sketch for the Paper Players today…this one just made me smile, it has great opportunity for lots of papers and/or images! 

Since Anne Marie is such a pet lover, I couldn’t help but use a little image from Animal Talk, along with some much-neglected Comfort Café DP:


I cut apart the dog image from the main sentiment, which made it a bit easier to stamp and paper piece!!!  He is stamped on a piece of Cajun Craze Patterns DP and I added white highlights with a white gel pen.   For the banner sentiment, I just masked off the part I didn’t want, and stamped it in Midnight Muse, adding some periods……


and just finished the sentence on the inside, along with some additional embellishments:


You can see I used some zig zag diecuts from the Tasteful Trim die, and perhaps you can see the zig zag embossing on the right front of the card, done with the Borders Scoring Plate!  My woodgrain panel is from the Natural Composition Specialty paper line, which qualifies my card for the City Crafter Challenge 151 this week, which is woodgrain!  And I also used a little woodgrain button from the mini catalog, along with some denim ribbon.

I hope you find this sketch enticing and hope you’ll play along with us this week!  You can find all the other samples as well at the Paper Players blog!

We are great fans of Inner Child Fun after seeing Valerie on one of my local news programs one morning….she has lots of fun crafts that are easy to do.  I decided to make a sponge bomb from this video but when I banded it together, Cassidy got upset….she just wanted to play with the sponges!  So I took it apart and she used them like blocks!




She is just so proud of herself!!!!  Thanks for visiting today!
