Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope you’re enjoying your holiday weekend! Today I am the hostess at the Paper Players, and I came up with a sketch that hopefully will spark your creative interest! I always have lots of little scraps left over from various cards and projects, so I thought it would be fun to make a sketch that would allow you to mix and match those scraps! Here you go!
For my card, I chose to use some Comfort Café papers to make a “comforting” card….since the colors in these are more fall-like, I haven’t used them for a while! And because it’s retiring, it seemed a shame to not give it some love….so here we go:
My card base is Summer Starfruit, layered with Very Vanilla and Baja Breeze, on which I have stamped a couple of images from Day of Gratitude, which is also retiring. I then embossed it with the Woodgrain EF, layered on my pieces, and added a little vellum tag, diecut from the Lots of Tags die set…also retiring. This was my go-to tag set, I am so sad to not see it return! I did add a little resin dahlia atop a NEW Very Vintage designer button….isn’t it sweet!!!
And try as I may, Summer Starfruit just doesn’t want to photograph correctly with my camera, so although this looks like some brilliant yellow cardstock, it really is the interior of my Summer Starfruit card!!!
I hope you’ll play along with us at the Paper Players this week and be sure to check out what all the other designers came up with using this fun sketch!! See you there!
Cassidy presented me with all kinds of photo ops the last few days! This time, she watered my flowers for me (again, sorry for the mis-matched outfit!!!):
She waters like a pro! And she was determined to get out every last drop!
