Paper Players 167


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Hope you’re having a great weekend!  Jaydee has a lovely BLUE inspiration for us this week!

Blue is my favorite color, especially these shades, but I was really stumped as to what to make this week!  I think my mind is on fall shades!  I pulled out a set from last year (that I was VERY sad to not see in this year’s catty), Perfectly Preserved.  It has a lot of nice fall images, but it also has a pretty floral image, so I used it for my card today:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players 167 Perfectly Preserved

I stamped the jar in Versamark and Midnight Muse, then embossed it with clear embossing powder so that I could easily add the “water” inside without bleeding.  I used watercolor paper so the ink flowed easily.  I stamped some florals in the challenge colors (and I added Pistachio Pudding stems….I hope Jaydee doesn’t kick me out!), and then a sweet sentiment from Petite Pairs. 


I always need sympathy cards, so I am trying to get ahead!


Hope you can find some inspiration from these colors---and share your creation with us at the Paper Players blog!  Can’t wait to see it!  And check out what the other designers created as well:

Enjoy your day!

  7. LeAnne I had to come back and take another look at this post to see how you did the piercing, and I see in my haste to compliment your creation the first time I spelled your name wrong. A thousand pardons :)
