Happy Sunday, peeps! Hope your weekend is good so far! Today, Joanne is our Paper Player hostess with a challenge that really challenged me, LOL!
I was hung up on using a light bulb on my card, but didn't have a single stamp that fit the bill! Then I remembered some Artistic Outpost stamp sets and lo and behold, there was a perfect "sunshine" sentiment! It was easy after that:
I love these eclectic-style cards...they're fun and forgiving, if you happen to stamp something not quite straight!! I started with some polka-dot paper (Park Bench by Fancy Pants) and stamped the sunburst from Kinda Eclectic with Crushed Curry ink. Then I just randomly stamped the other images in Stazon Black and Smoky Slate; the sentiment is from AO's The Outpost; the bee is from Darcie's Heart & Home BeeUtiful; the "be happy" is from Our Daily Bread Designs' Mini Tag Sentiments. All the other images are from AO's A Lovely Day.
I wanted to put some banners in the empty left-hand corner, but the sentiment was in the way, so I made two slits above and below the sentiment, then tucked the banners underneath:
I thought the bee and "be happy" looked sweet together!
And when I was in elementary school, I thought Holland would be the most wonderful place to visit...not sure what the appeal was, but maybe it was all those tulips! I love how the polka dots make some of the tulips look yellow!
And since most of the stamps I used were Artistic Outpost, I am entering this in their August challenge!
I can't wait to see your interpretation of the Paper Players challenge! I hope you play with us! Check out what the other team members created here:
Cassidy was insistent on doing some harvesting in the garden! Grampy went down to help her out:
Check out the size of this beet! She won't eat them either, but she likes to pull them up!
And a couple more birthday cards....I keep getting them, it's delightful! This delicate design is from my friend Sandy:
and Cassidy and I both were enthralled with this fun card from my sweet friend Kristi! This cupcake is AMAZING!
