Paper Players 287 CAS Easter Wishes


Hi everyone!  It's Palm Sunday, the first day of spring, AND time for another Paper Players challenge!  Jaydee is our hostess today---AND it's her birthday, so be sure to hop by her blog and give her some cyber hugs & wishes!  She's got a lovely clean and simple challenge for us today!


 I have been having a great time dusting off some older stamps and giving them some love!  This is a set from SU dated 1996!!  I got it at a yard sale and since I don't have catalogs that go back that far, I don't know what the name of it is!  But the little country images are so sweet, I thought they would be perfect for a springy Easter-y card!


I stamped each image in Basic Black, colored them with markers, punched them out and layered them on stitched circles in Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Daffodil Delight.  I outlined each image with a little bit of Sahara Sand too, just to make them stand out a bit!  The sentiment is a combination of SU's Fabulous Phrases (wishes) and Technique Tuesday's Organized & Inspired (Easter).  I added some SU gingham ribbon and mounted the panel on an embossed card front.


I am also entering this in the RetroRubber (cuz this stamp set is definitely retro!) Easter challenge!

I hope you'll play along with our clean and simple challenge this week!  Check out what the designers created as well:

 Cassidy lined up a whole slew of her dolls "by age", starting with the one-year-old on the top left and ending with the ten-year-old on the bottom right...I know, there is no rhyme or reason to the size!  And since there are eleven dolls, the two-year-olds are twins!!!



Enjoy your day!

  4. That Cassidy is just too cute!! I love to see what she's up to. Then that card is adorable. I love those images and they really remind me of a lot that I've seen this Spring. I guess what goes around comes around is true. I really like those layered circles. Which stitched ones do you use?
