Hi peeps! I missed everyone SO MUCH this last week, but it was nice to have a break from blogging and commenting, especially coming back from convention! Ann is our hostess for the Paper Players this week, and she has a wonderful sketch for us:
My card is a wee bit busy, but I just love this Flashback DP; it has so many cool, sort of retro designs, I just had to mix them up! We got this fun You Rock stamp at convention FREE, so I stamped it in Smoky Slate on Soft Sky cardstock and did some fussy cutting:
I did flip the sketch so that my rocking chair wasn’t rocking right off the card, and I used a couple different patterns from the DSP pack for my banners, adding a Naturals Ivory banner for this middle, accented with a Smoky Slate sliver and some dry embossing. When I mounted my stamp set, I cut the sentiment apart, took it off the sticky rubber and mounted it on cling-mount rubber so that I could use it with other images as well!
I also added a little file tab for fun, stamping it with a new little argyle image from a set in the upcoming Holiday mini called Project Life Holiday Cheer! Finally, I added a little heart “pillow” sitting on the seat of the rocker! I can think of a few friends that ROCK in my book! Maybe I’ll send it to one of them!
I hope that you find this sketch inspiring and you’ll want to play along with us this week! Check out the other designers’ creations at the Paper Players, or just click on the links below!
