Paper Players 232

DSCF7924-001

Hey peeps!  Today, Joanne is our hostess and she’s got a sweet clean-and-simple challenge for us….use a bird on your card!  Yay!  I love birds! 

I am a bit disappointed that my card didn’t photograph as well as I would like, because it’s really cool-looking IRL!  At any rate, here it is:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players 232 So You Happy Bird Stampin Up

I used some washi tape, and the top one is the gold one from SU’s Watercolor Wonder, but the shimmer just doesn’t show up in the photo!  Trust me, it looks better than it does here!   The birdhouse tape is from my stash and the other two are from SU’s Sweet Sadie.  I am not sure where the bird die came from (there’s no name on it) and the sentiments and dotty corner are from SU’s set called So You, which is a really fun set from the Occasions Mini.  I stamped the “happy” in Memento Black ink, then used a blender pen and Crisp Cantaloupe ink to fill it in:

I mounted my Very Vanilla panel on a Crumb Cake card I already had laying around (I was trying to use up some stuff I already had cut!), and then added some piercing and sequins.  This is less clean-and-simple than I usually do, but I think it still qualifies!  This also qualifies for Little Red Wagon’s Winter Washiland challenge as well as the sketch from CAS(e) This Sketch:

I can’t wait to see what you come up with for Joanne’s challenge!  Share your creations with us at the Paper Players and meanwhile, check out what the other designers did as well:

Cassidy made some Valentine cookies for her mommy and daddy on Friday:

I had some leftover white and pink icing in the freezer, so we put both in the frosting bag at the same time with a star tip and had lots of fun decorating them!

  1. Love your use of washi tape, especially that cool bird house tape, LeAnne! The dark bird silhouette is perfect on top, and I love the cool dots in the corner. Cassisy did a wonderful job baking cookies, too!

  5. This card has so many elements of interest LeAnne - I think it is a real WOW CAS card! I love the bird cage washi, the little row of dots, paper piercing and scattering of sequins, but for me the T-shaped sentiment really makes this card - it adds such visual interest! I thought this challenge would appeal to you - so glad you enjoyed playing along this week! The Valentine's cookies look delicious too!

  11. I just LOVE this. I cannot express how much I adore it other than to say I'm pinning it so I can admire it again later. The grungy washi tape strips, the awesome way you've stamped the sentiment - just genius.
