Paper Players 246


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Hope you’re having a fabulous weekend, especially since it’s the Memorial Day holiday weekend in the USA!  Today Anne Marie has a sketch challenge for us at the Paper Players!  Here you go:

I was definitely having stamper’s block with my card this week…it was not the sketch; I LOVE the sketch; I just couldn’t make anything work!  Finally, I pegged together something that I liked, using some older Unity stamps:

and the color challenge from Colour Me…! shown here:


I used some SAB paper from the recent catalog; stamped my images in Bermuda Bay and colored them with a blender pen and Pear Pizzazz ink:


and then a row of polka dots using a PTI set, stamped in Smoky Slate and again, colored with a blender pen:


I received the fun baker’s twine as a gift and it worked perfectly with the colors too, so I added that behind my image for a fun embellishment!  A couple of stitched borders and a “celebrate” sentiment and my card will get added to my birthday card stash!

Hope you find the sketch inspiring and will play along with us this week too!  Here’s what the other designers created with it:

Taking Lamby for a walk:



Hey, if you let go, the stroller goes by itself!  Wheeeeeee!


Enjoy your day!


  1. Pretty card. Love the colors.

  2. Wonderful job with the sketch. Your sentiment looks great stamped directly on the patterned paper. I need to remember to try that sometime. And, what cutie in the photos!

  3. I see no signs of a block here LeAnne, this is pretty!! I like the polka dots (of course!!) and those cute little birds. Don't think Penelope would say weeee if I let go of her stroller!! We'll have to wait a couple of years until sh'e pushing a lamby of here own ;) Hope you're enjoying this beautiful Memorial Day weekend!

  4. I love all the elements and detail on your card! Works perfectly for the challenges.

    She is so cute, it is fun watching her play!

  5. This is so pretty, LeAnne! The polka dots are fun and the looped twine is such a cool look.

  6. I love the way you combined these colours to give your card such a fresh and zingy feel! The baker's twine is the perfect embellishment and I love the bold sentiment stamped directly on the DSP too. Great job - happy Memorial Day LeAnne!

  7. Gorgeous card, LeAnne! I love the vintagey spin you put on these colors. And that baker's twine was perfect! What a find!

  8. loving the textures and great use of colors. The twine is super fun! Thank you for joining us at Colour Me!

    Your girl is a cuttie too! :)

  9. Such a fun combination of the colors! And I had a block with this card design as well, no idea why, I love how yours turned out! Your grand daughter is adorable! Hugs!

  10. Lovely card! Love the twine and the colors you chose!

  11. LeAnne, looking at your card you wouldn't have believed you had any creative block! I love your collection of baker's twine behind the focal image. Fabuous card.

  12. I have to agree with exactly what Jaydee said, I never would have believed you had any kind of creative block. This is beautiful! I love the soft colors and the fantastic mix of patterns. The loopy twine is such a great accent, too. I’m glad you liked my sketch this week. Big hugs! :)

  13. My creative block moments never produce something as fabulous as this! These colors are gorgeous together and I am lovin' that twine!

  14. LeAnne, this is so pretty! I don't think you had a creative block at all! The stamped image is perfect on this DSP! Love the polka dots and the twine! Cassidy is just so cute! I love all the pictures! XX
