Paper Players 156


Happy Sunday, peeps!  It’s my turn to be the hostess at the Paper Players, and I have a sketch for you:

I had this sketch made up a few weeks ago, but imagine how happy I was when I got my new Holiday Mini goodies and O Holy Night was in that box:

PP155 LeAnne Pugliese  O Holy Night

It works perfectly for the sketch!  I love the “subway art” style this image uses, and for ease, I stamped the image twice, once in Coastal Cabana and again in Bermuda Bay.  I cut out sections and adhered them to the Coastal Cabana panel and then stamped the star section and mounted them all on a Bermuda Bay mat.  It’s hard to see, but the designer paper has some shimmery silver on it…sooooo pretty!  So I stamped the stars in Encore Silver ink on to my Smoky Slate card to complement the silver, and rhinestones add some nice sparkle as well!   Here’s a closeup of the panel itself:


I hope you’ll play with us this week, and you can share your creation over at the Paper Players blog, so we all can gaze at your creativity!  Can’t wait to see what you come up with!  And be sure to check out the other designers creations as well!

Just goofin’ around!



And here are two shares today:










The left one is from my friend Linda; she cased a card I received at Easter from Doris; and the one on the right is from Sandy, since today is my birthday!   Thanks, ladies!
