Paper Players 255

DSCF0984
Happy Sunday, peeps!  I hope you had a good week…I thoroughly enjoyed my “vacation”….some of it was a “staycation”, some of it was spent at the Delaware shore with DD and DGD, and some of it was working, as in picking and canning the garden! But it's good to be back stamping! 

My sweet friend Sandy is our hostess this week for the Paper Players, and she has a lovely sketch:


And here's my card, starting with a Pear Pizzazz base:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players 255 Watercolor Wishes stampin up

I love the sentiments and fonts included in the Watercolor Wishes kit, and I needed a sympathy card this week, so this particular sentiment was perfect.  I chose this pretty floral from English Garden DSP for my background, snipping out some of the florals and leaves to put at the bottom of my tag:

It’s hard to see, but the leaves are curled up a bit for some dimension.  I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive and added some watercolory splotches from Work of Art in Blushing Bride and some speckles from Itty Bitty Backgrounds in Sahara Sand.  Of course, I added a few sequins just for a subtle bit of shine.  I snagged some cool cotton cording at a yard sale last week and it matched the colors nicely, so I used it for my tag, tying it with some hemp cord, which I also used to accent the left side of the card, so that allows me to enter this in the City Crafter Challenge this week, which is twine! And finally, Can You Case It has a “Designer’s Choice” challenge during convention, so I am entering this there as well!

I hope that you’ll play along with our challenge this week…it’s a great sketch with lots of possibilities!  You can see what the designers did with it here:
Can’t wait to see what you create!

As I mentioned, last week “the girls” took a couple days to go to the Delaware shore, where we hit the beach at Cape Henlopen:

The weather was gorgeous and we had a blast!

  10. Such a pretty card, LeAnne! I adore pinks and greens together and these are perfect. Also love the font of the sentiment and wish that stamp set was available by itself. Girls weekend looked like fun, and I think you are much braver than I when it comes to rides!

  11. This card is lovely LeAnne! One of my customers loves this paper but is struggling to know how to best work with the bold patterns. I have made a few cards to show her but I will definitely be sharing this as another great example - the tag treatment is just enough to lift it off the pattern, without detracting. The cord and sequins add a beautiful finishing touch too. Glad you enjoyed your holiday - it looks like a good time was had by all!
