Paper Players 221


Hi everyone! It’s Sunday, and that means it’s Paper Players time!  Sandy is our hostess this week with a beautiful color challenge!  Don’t you just love these colors together?

This is one of the those cards that just makes me happy!  Christmas colors, vintage Santa, gingham, snowflakes and velvet ribbon!  Woohoo!

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players 221 Vintage Santa Crafty Secrets Christmas

I used the sketch from the Paper Craft Crew challenge to get me started:

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 117

The gingham is a retired SU wheel that I took off the roller and added cling foam so that it can be used on a block….makes it much easier to stamp in a straight line, too!  The Santa and the sentiment are from an old Crafty Secrets set…my all-time favorite vintage Christmas set, I think!  Isn’t the detail on this image great?


I added some retired Very Vanilla velveteen ribbon, and then stamped on the inside as well:


So, what will you create with these colors…it doesn’t have to be Christmas-related!  Use your imagination!  I hope you’ll pop by the Paper Players blog to see all the other designers’ creations as well, or check them out here:

Woof woof---that translates to “Enjoy your day!”

Oh wow!! That Santa is fantastically vintage. Great tip for the rollers. I never could get in to using them because I couldn't do a straight line for my life.
