Paper Players 159


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Ann is our hostess today with a clean and simple challenge:

Oooh, that is a challenge—one layer!  But I managed to make a one-layer card that was pretty CAS….not a lot of white space….but some pretty stamping and a wee bit of embossing:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players 159 Papaya Collage CAS Gorgeous Grunge Petite Pairs

I used a set that I haven’t used for a while, Papaya Collage, along with Gorgeous Grunge….amazing how versatile that set is!  This card is smaller; note card size; so the images work quite well with it.  I diecut the edge and embossed it, then stamped the stripes on the inside of the card to peek out from behind the embossing…such a pretty effect!  (Be sure you diecut first, THEN emboss… can figure out how I know to do that!!!)


Then I stamped my foliage and butterflies, simply coloring them with some ink and a blender pen, then adding the pearl centers:


I did dye some seam binding for a little bow, but Ann said that was okay to do!!! 

So, what will you do with this one-layer, clean and simple challenge?  Can’t wait to see!  And be sure to check out the Paper Players blog to see what the other designers created as well!

We are having Cassidy’s party today, so hopefully I will have some pictures to post this week.  Meanwhile, a little shot of the fashionista from last week, courtesy of her mommy:


Have a blessed day!

  1. LeAnn, this is sooo soft and pretty! Thanks for your inspiration. Hugs

  2. My word, is Cassidy THREE now? How the time flies... such a darling, beautiful little girl! I'm sure she gets it from her grandma! :)

  3. Lots of interest on this one layer card. Very nice.

  4. Beautiful card LeAnn. It is so very pretty. As well is the fashionista. LOL
    Happy Sunday,

  5. Wow, you packed a lot of amazing touches into this OLC! It doesn't even seem like it's one layer! Love the embossing, die cut edge, and the pretty stripes peeking through.

  6. Beautiful card LeAnne and yes that Cassidy is STYLIN'
    So darling. Have a great day.

  7. I have to admit to running the other way when it comes to one layer cards, yet you have created an absolute stunner. It's sweet and gentle. The bright butterflies on the soft greenery gives it so much dimensional - and the grunge just adds more!

  8. Pretty card LeAnne! The butterflies are amazing. Little miss Cassidy looks ready for the runway, look at that flair!!

  9. Your card is gorgeous, LeAnne! Love the embossed edge and the touch of grunge with the pretty foliage and butterflies!

    And speaking of gorgeous...that little granddaughter of yours is growing up so fast! Hugs!

  10. Good Afternoon:
    What a pretty card - I love the soft colors.
    Tell Cassidy to have a wonderful birthday - she seems like such a happy girl! Hope she is feeling better for her party!

  11. This is so pretty, LeAnne! Makes me want to go pull out that set. Maybe later....Luke's on track out so I may not get much stamping done for the next few weeks.

  12. I love this one, too. Very soft looking.

  13. Very sweet and simple. I love the pop of color from the butterflies.

  14. Wowzers, LeAnne you have done a phenomenal job with this OLC! So much dimension and texture that it doesn't even appear to be one-layer. Such a clever stamper you are! Love the inside stamping of the grunge--great look. And Cassidy is rockin' those pink shoes!!

  15. This is a one layer wonder for sure, LeAnne! Wow! I love ll of the detail you added while still keeping it on a single layer. Love the scalloped edge with a pop of pattern inside, too. Seriously, how cute is Cassidy in those shoes?! Haha! Adorable! :)

  16. LeAnne---Wouldn'tthink of Gorgeous Grunge and the Papaya Collection together...but it's perfect! the border and the ribbon. So sweet!
