Hi everyone! Hope your Sunday is going well! It's time for another Paper Players challenge! This week, the uber-creative Joanne is our hostess with an interesting color palette:
I had a couple of ideas for these colors, in fact I created one and really wasn't that enthusiastic about it, so I did another...much better! One thing about the mini catalogs...there are tons of cute sets in them, but I rarely get a lot of use from them before the next one comes out! That's what happened with this set from last year's mini...it's called Thankful Forest Friends, and it has the cutest little animals in it and yet, I don't think I have inked it up but once or twice! So I gave them some love (and ink) for today's card:
I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock in Crushed Curry, first coloring in the acorn with an Early Espresso marker before stamping. Then I added some Peekaboo Peach color to a few of the leaves with some ink and a blender pen. It was framed with a photo frame diecut in Crushed Curry, under which I tucked a bear and fox, which were stamped separately and fussy-cut out:
I also did some stamping on the bottom portion of the frame and added some stitched die-cut leaves and embroidery floss. The Early Espresso mat was embossed with the Woodland embossing folder to continue the "forest" theme. I haven't stamped an inside sentiment yet....probably a Thanksgiving one will be appropriate!
The design team has some really neat cards using these colors...check them out below, and then be sure to share your creations with us at the Paper Players blog!
Dana posted a few of her wedding photos on FB, so I snagged this one of the whole family:
Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!
