Paper Players 162 X 2


Happy Sunday, everyone!  It’s time for another Paper Players challenge, and today I am the hostess with a color challenge:

It’s fun to change things up, since there are so many fall-themed creations out there in blogland, so I went for a different palette!  And I made two cards; couldn't decide which I liked most!   My first card is pretty CAS:

LeAnne Pugliese paper Players 162 #2

I used some ribbon to create a washi effect, and just added a simple sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts:


Isn’t that a sweet font?

My next card was totally CASEd by the wickedly wonderful Wendy Weixler after seeing this card on Pinterest.  I have been waiting for just the right moment to make one like it and I thought these colors were perfect, especially since SU has a bundle special for the Papillon Potpourri set and the butterfly punch!  So here we go:

This card is way more blinged up than I usually make!  I started by scoring my white cardstock at 1 1/4”, then stamped the floral image from Blooming with Kindness and sponged all the raised scores.  I added a couple of borders, some ribbon, a sentiment and background from Lovely Labels and of course, some glittery, rhinestone-y butterflies that were stamped with Stazon on vellum:


Now, what will you create with my colors?  Can’t wait to see!  Share it with us at The Paper Players blog and check out what the other designers did as well:
 And did you know today is Grandparents' Day?!!!!

  1. Very pretty! Love the font on that first card!!

  2. Love the butterfly card (and think I will be 'case'ing it).

  3. I love both of the cards. The first one has the EF that I used on my Brother's wedding invites, I had forgotten about it! The second one is equally gorgeous! Enjoy your Sunday! :-)

  4. They are both so gorgeious, I can't decide which one I like better! Beautiful colors!

  5. I like them both!! Pretty embossed background on the first one and the second has me swooning over those sparkly butterflies!

    Happy Grandparents Day!!!

  6. Love what you've done with your colour challenge LeAnne ~ two fabulous cards...and those glittery butterflies....delicious!!! Enjoy your day *hugs*

  7. Great colors this week, LeAnne! Love the washi-ribbon and texture on the first card, and the beautiful background on the second.

  8. Love the ribbons and the tiles with beautiful butterflies!

  9. WOW! Those glittery butterflies are over-the-top awesome! Two totally different cards, yet both are jaw-droppers! I LOVE them both.

  10. Oh my goodness...not one but two beautiful examples of these colors! Love the simplicity of the CAS one and the detail on the other is stunning. What a clever way to use the dahlia stamp! Love this color combination! Great job!

  11. Such beautiful cards LeAnne! Love the embossed background on the first and the shimmery butterflies on the second! Thanks for the inspiration and pretty colors to play with!

  12. thanks for the great color choices for this challenge! and I love the simplicity of the first card with the white embossed background

  13. LeAnne, belated happy grandparent's day! :-)
    I love both cards. Your use of ribbon in the first card was genius! The sparkly butterflies on the second are fabulous.

  14. First of all, your color combo is fabulous this week, my friend! Your cards are pretty cool too. Ha! I love the mix of textures from the ribbon and embossing on the first card. The shimmery butterflies are awesome on the second card. Two cards that are completely different, yet showcase the colors beautifully. :)
