Paper Players 158


Happy Sunday, peeps!  It’s going to be a glorious day here in PA, and I think we’ll spend some time today on the sailboat!  But first, let’s take a peek at Sandy’s first Paper Players challenge:

Yummy, aren’t they?  I was feeling a bit rebellious, and figuring that most of the designers would go for florals, because these are lovely colors for florals, so I decided to go for a grungy/washi look:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players  158 Tape It

I had originally begun with a CAS sketch but it sort of got away from me!  I stamped various washi images from Tape it along the left, added some splatters & lines from Gorgeous Grunge and finished it off with a couple of sentiments. 


And since I had my Sharpies on my desk from yesterday’s card, I colored up some rhinestones and added them on too!


So, now what will you do with these summery, sherbet-y colors?  Be sure to share your creation with us at the Paper Players blog, and check out the design team’s creations as well!

Hmmm….can it be played this way?


You can add your own caption to this one!


Enjoy your day!

Hi LeAnne: thanks for your day-brightening comment on my blog! Your card here certainly showcases those lovely sherbet-y colours wonderfully, and what a unique take! Yes, I would have been reaching for floral stamps, but with this as inspiration, I'm certainly planning to think of other choices, as you did! Gorgeous!

Love what you did with my colors, LeAnne! These washi tape stamps have been on my "maybe" wish list for a while and it's fun to see how you used them. The little colored rhinestones are the perfect embellishment!

Fabulous card my friend! I love this set and haven't inked it up nearly enough. Now I love that font on your sentiment so much that I'm going to have to stick that set on my wishlist. Blog surfing is expensive! ;)

Cassidy cracks me up!

Gorgeous, LeAnne. my favorite card this week. I love how you were so reserved with the use of gorgeous grunge... just the right amount of splatter and those rhinestones are the perfect finishing touch.
gorgeous pics of Cassidy... and happy birthday to her, too!

Something about this trumpet reminds me of Dr. Seuss!
