Paper Players 194


Happy Sunday, everyone!  Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Today, Jaydee is our hostess at the Paper Players, and she’s chosen that wonderful May holiday of Mother’s Day to highlight this week:

I found a lovely image at the Gecko Galz website and they are having a Mother’s Day challenge as well, so I incorporated my tag into a vintage-style card:

My card base is Very Vanilla and I used some MME Lost & Found papers, I think the line is Blush.  I sponged all the edges, added some machine stitching on one panel, then added my tag.  I did diecut one edge and added some piercing, although it’s tough to see here.  My sentiment is from the retiring Delightful Dozen, which was inked in Versamark and then Soft Suede and heat-embossed with clear embossing powder:


It stands out nicely on my tag!  Now, show us what you are going to create for this special holiday!  Share it with all of us on the Paper Players blog!  And here are the other designers’ samples as well:

I did make another card for this challenge (you know how that goes!) and it has a more whimsical feel:

I just had to play with some new goodies, LOL!  Enjoy your day!




  1. LeAnne, I love both cards but the first one is just my style! What a gorgeous download. What kind of paper do you print your downloads onto? It looks just like DSP. I love the tag element, too. What a lovely Mother's Day card!

  2. I love both cards too LeAnne and Cassidy is getting so big. Have a lovely Mother's Day. I really should stamp some cards for that.

  3. Love that first card! The tag, the colors, the patterns are just gorgeous.

  8. Both of your cards are beautiful, LeAnne! I love the shabby chic feel to the first card and the fun and whimsical feel to the second. As always, your details are perfect. Love Cassidy's little kissy face! Haha! :)

  9. LeAnne, this card is lovely! Your tag is so pretty and I love the scrunchy ribbon. The second card is as sweet as the first one is elegant. Now Cassidy's face, that is priceless!

  10. LeAnne, I love them both! I really love your mix of papers for the first one. It really is like a big bouquet of flowers on a card. Gorgeous.
