Paper Players 249


Happy Sunday, peeps!  It’s time for a Paper Players challenge, and this week my sweet friend Sandy is our hostess with a great color combination for us:

Last year, I had a chance to get this older Flourishes stamp called Patriotism on Parade, and this is the first time I’ve inked it up!  It seemed perfect for the colors:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players 249 Patriotic Celebration Card

This is a notecard-sized card; I stamped the silhouette image on Pool Party, added some “fireworks” from SU’s retired Confetti, and a sentiment from Good Greetings.


I stamped the bunting in Real Red, trimmed it a little to fit and colored it in lightly with ink and a blender pen, which works perfectly for the Match the Sketch 076 sketch:

I had a piece of beautiful red ribbon already in my stash as well as a piece of already-diecut scalloped Real Red cardstock, so I added them and I was done!  I hope you’ll find some time to play along with our colors;  it doesn’t have to be patriotic!  I am looking forward to see how all you creative stampers use them this week!  Meanwhile, check out what the other designers did:

Making a mud pie!  Yum!

  3. What a great stamp LeAnne - I love the little row of people, so much going on there! Such a great use of the layout too - it totally works for your card and I love your take on the colours this week!
