Paper Players 236

DSCF8584
Happy Sunday, peeps!  It’s time for another Paper Players challenge!  This week, the lovely and talented Ann is our hostess with a clean and simple challenge:
There are so many lovely floral images that SU has out right now, but I had this super cute Sweet Stuff set on my desk for another card, and I thought that the flower image had such a happy smile, it would be fun to use it for today’s challenge!  So here we go:

Although there are a couple of layers here on my notecard-sized card, it’s still very clean and simple!  I stamped the image in Stazon and colored it with Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz and Pistachio Pudding inks and an aquapainter.

I got brave and stamped the sentiment from the photopolymer set So You with some Stazon ink (which doesn’t usually work well with clear stamps) on some retired Pear Pizzazz ribbon, and wonder of wonders, it worked pretty well!  I love the effect!

My stitched layers are from Lil’Inkers and the DSP is some retired SU in Daffodil Delight.  So happy and sunshiney!
I hope you’ll be inspired to play with us this week!  Check out what the other designers did with the challenge as well; you’ll love them:
The winter has been pretty hard on our yard and trees, as you can see by all the branches that have fallen on the ground!  Cassidy wanted to use one as a sword!

  1. Super cute, LeAnne!
    I am jealous that you have no snow on the ground right now. It is snowing here as I type this. ;(

  2. LeAnne you must have been reading my mind, because I had this cute little flower in mind with a very similar layout for this challenge! So, so cute and happy! And I can't believe you stamped that sentiment on ribbon. Amazing!

  3. Spring is coming but it sure arrived with your card! I love that adorable stamp!! Fun playing with our old stuff and seeing something new we can do with it is half the fun of crafting. I love how you stamped directly onto your ribbon and will have to give that a try.

  4. Your sentiment looks terrific on the ribbon, this is adorable LeAnne!! that little happy faced flower is cute. So many of our neighbors lost trees and shrubs last year. I'm afraid to see what this harsh winter has left us with. Just put in a new lilac last spring, hope it survives!!

  10. Hi LeAnne, I know long time. Had to tell you how much I love this bright and sweet card. Love the stamping on the ribbon. Cassidy is growing up fast and she looks beautiful!

  11. Oh my goodness, I LOVE your card!! Such pretty colors and that little stamp is a favorite of mine!! I may just have to case this!! And genius to stamp ON the ribbon-I love it! When I first saw the ribbon I thought it was a retired one that came in a Christmas set a few years ago, but that one was Old Olive. I must have missed this one...wait, there's a ribbon out there that I DON'T have?? Eek!! Lol. Great job with the challenge!
