Paper Players 196


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Hope you’re having a great weekend so far!  Ann is our fabulous hostess today at the Paper Players, and she has a delightful clean and simple challenge for us today:

I pulled out a floral image from Papertrey Ink that hadn’t been used for a while and inked it up in Old Olive and Strawberry Slush for my one-layer card today:

I did add an extra little bit of shading with a blender pen and ink, as well as some light speckles of Pink Pirouette and a couple little sequins.  I have to admit, making a single layer card takes me back to my first foray into stamping…the excitement of creating something with just a stamp, paper and ink!  I hope you’ll catch the excitement and make a clean and simple floral creation and share it with us this week!  And be sure to check out the other designers creations as well:

We experimented with finger painting this week, although we started out with a paintbrush:


She loved mixing the colors….and then she really got into it:


and then it turned into ARM painting….and soon after, we had to take a bath!


Enjoy your day!


  1. Gorgeous one layer card! I love all the white.
    Cassidy looks like she enjoyed her painting. Next time use chocolate pudding and she can eat the mess.

  2. Isn't it amazing how a few speckles can make a card pop! Not to be compared to arm painting, tho ;)

  3. So beautiful LeAnne! I love the simplicity of this and the beautiful colours you chose. The little extras really add to the overall design as well.
    I loved finger painting as a child - sure looks like she enjoyed it! You are going to have an artist on your hands!

  4. Beautiful card. Cassidy sure looks like she had fun.

  5. SUCH a lovely card. You make me want to break out some stamps and ink and give it a try. And little Cassidy is growing up so quickly! Such a darling grandgirl you have. I love seeing her artistic side! :)


  6. LeAnne!!! I love this card! I have such a hard time with one layer cards. This is awesome! Would you mind if I CASE it for my June stamp class?

  7. LeAnne this is FABulous! LOVE the colors on the large white space. Fantastic! hugs.

  8. Well, that's getting into it isn't it Cassidy? Quite the little artist there;) Good thing it all washes off right Grammy?
    I like your card LeAnne. Great job on the one layer and these pretty flowers. I love the scattered sequins. So pretty.

  9. Such pretty flowers, LeAnne! And they should call that stuff body paint instead of finger paint!

  10. What a gorgeous one layer card, LeAnne! That flower image is just beautiful, and I like the spritzing and sequins, too. I see Cassidy was feeling artistic, too!

  11. Gorgeous, LeAnne. This set is perfect for a one layer card. Your addition of the splashes and sequins makes you forget that it is one layer. Fabulous!
