Paper Players 278 CAS Valentine


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Thank you to everyone who sent along anniversary well-wishes!  We had a nice day!  But on to stamping!  Sandy is our fabulous Paper Players hostess today with a fun clean and simple challenge:


Since Sandy "enabled" me to get some of these cute Simple Stories papers from the I Am... line, I decided it would be appropriate to use one of them in my card!  So here it is:


This is a case of letting the paper do most of the work!  The brickwork and most of the hearts are already on the paper....I stamped the "love & kisses" using SU's So You and Great Greetings sets; then I added a little Papertrey heart diecut from Strawberry Slush that sits right above the fold, and filled it with a little silver glimmer paper heart .  The final touch was a big baker's twine bow, and it is all mounted on a Sahara Sand card that measures almost 3x6".  Oh, and I did add some enamel dots too!!!  Fun little love note that was quick and easy!


I hope you'll play along this week and start your Valentine card stash!  Check out what the other designers did as well:

Be sure to share you creations with us at the Paper Players!

I walked into the kitchen one evening last week and found Cassidy standing on the table with Dana trimming her hair!!


And you can tell how excited Cassidy was to be subjected to this torture:


Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

This card is so adorable.....and fun! That is a great background paper for sure! And your picture of Cassidy made me laugh! Emma can make that face as well.....and usually hangs her head like Eeyore when she does!

Wow, I was trying to figure out what stamp you used and come to find out it's PAPER! Just adorable--love the bright and happy colors and the coordinating details you added. Too bad you couldn't make Cassidy bright and happy too, lol!

What a gorgeous CAS Valentine, LeAnne! You already know I love that paper and the colors. Cassidy cracks me up, that face!

Colleen Begley said...

Ok, so I was completely fooled with the paper. I looked at your card and wondered how you stamped those heart circles so perfectly. Now I know, LOL. This card is super, super cute!

That is great paper - so much texture and dimension! Love your fun, bright CAS card. As for the haircut face - what torture!!!!

LeAnne, I love that you used the brick embossing folder as a background for your cluster of hearts. The pink bow is just the perfect finishing touch. As for Cassidy... yep.... I can see she is thrilled about having her hair cut... I know I hated having my locks cut off at that age, too!
hugs
