Paper Players 250

Happy Sunday, everyone!  I hope you have some fun Father’s Day plans made!  Claire is our hostess with the mostest today, and she has a cool clean and simple challenge for us this week: 

I just loved the little ice cream cone from Sweet Stuff and was so sad it didn’t make it into the catalog this year, but I kept it because I knew I could use it again, and sure enough, it was perfect for Claire’s challenge:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players 250 CAS Sweet Stuff All Boxed Up Stampin Up

I stamped it in Stazon on Shimmery White paper and did some watercoloring, then added some sparkle with a Gelly Roll pen:


I stamped him again on some Cherry On Top DSP and popped him up, then added some scallops and banners for the Match the Sketch sketch this week:

I did turn my card sideways as the image and banners fit a little better!  The sentiment on the banner is from All Boxed Up, which I LOVE---so many great uses for those sentiments---and the inside is from Cottage Greetings:


Don’t you just love the font?  And I must tell you, this card features SU's new heavyweight cardstock!  It is so awesome!  Very sturdy and great for card bases.  I just love it!

Now, what will you create for our clean and simple challenge?  Share it with us at the Paper Players blog and be sure to check out what the other designers created as well:
Cassidy dressed herself to go see her Daddy, and she wanted everyone to see her Chick-Fil-A puppets!

Enjoy your day!

  5. My goodness, how sweet this is! And I'm so glad to hear the new card stock is nice and heavy. It's been a long time coming, that's for sure!

  6. I love the smiley ice cream cone LeAnne - perfect with all those patterned papers (I notice you have been on a patterned paper kick too this week my friend!) Cassidy is looking very pretty - and her puppets look like fun! And thank heavens for the new heavy weight white cardstock - I love it too and it is long overdue in my opinion!!

    1. Thanks, Joanne! Yes, I don't know what took SU so long to get this heavy cardstock...they gave a little taste of it last year with the little notecards! And yes, I got my DSPs earlier in the week, so I have been in my DSP glory!
