Paper Players 375 Friends Furever


Happy Sunday, peeps!  After a refreshing break, the Paper Players are back!!  Sandy is our hostess today with a Punny Valentine theme:


I do have a punny Valentine set but I wanted to challenge myself to use a non-Valentine stamp set, so I pulled out Bella and Friends for my card today:


I stamped Bella and her little turtle friend in Basic Black ink and did some watercoloring with reinkers.  I used Crumb Cake, Emerald Envy and Lemon Lime Twist for my colors, and the Labeler Alphabet comes in handy for making up your own punny sentiments like this one!  I used some Eastern Palace and Naturally Eclectic DSPs for my background.


My sketch is from Hand-Stamped Sentiments:


We would be so excited if you participated with our challenge this week...a fun one to start off 2018!  Be sure to share your creations with us at the Paper Players blog, and be sure to check out the submissions of our DT, including our new guest designer, Elizabeth Stewart!

At seven, Cassidy still loves to play with her baby dolls....one she got for Christmas actually crawls and talks (in a kind of creepy voice, but I didn't tell her that)!  Here, she is lining up all the accessories she got and naming them for me one by one!



Enjoy your day, stay warm if it's cold where you are and thanks for popping in!  Be blessed!

It's always lovely to see Cassidy again because she always steals the show! Heck, I still played with dolls until I was 12, but I guess "those were the days!" lol! I love your sweet furever friends card, LeAnn! It's a great take on the sketch and PPlayers theme!! Happy New Year! Hugs, Darnell

Lovely image, beautifully coloured. You are just so good at mixing papers and textures so that they add do, rather than detract from, the main image. Another great card!

LeAnne, you knew I would love the sentiment - and focal point on this card! Great take on the code word - and the sketch. Love the pics of Cassidy laying out everything to play with her doll. I remember those days so well!

LeAnne, this is adorable! I love your little 'Furever Friends!" Those little letters are the best! I bought that set and never used it. Thanks for the inspiration! Cassidy is my kind of girl. I still like to play with dolls. Wish she could play with Addison and Victoria! Wouldn't they have a blast! Have a great week, My Friend! XX

Oh how cute is this! I like the colors you chose and the little pop of red. Awesome coloring on little Bella too! I love that Cassidy plays with dolls. I hope she does for a couple of more years. Kids are growing up way too fast these days and more into electronics that using their imagination.

Elizabeth Price said...

Okay I am totally loving this card! The playful color palette with just a hint of red is spectacular. Thanks for sharing a valentine with a non-valentine stamp set or paper. Your are amazing. Thanks for sharing with us over at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Smiles, Elizabeth

So cute......I love the colors!

Joanne James said...

I saw your card LeAnne and immediately felt like I did not try hard enough to make punny with my existing sets - your furry friends are adorable!! Such a fabulous use of this set with your custom sentiment and I love your bright and cheery colour scheme too. Way to go!

laurie said...

That is a cute pun!I love the colors..so sharp together. Cute pics of Cassidy too, so nice she still loves baby dolls, they grow up way too fast the way it is!

Ann Abrahamson said...

You have such a wonderful sense of color combos! I would never have thought of putting those colors together but they sure work on this adorable card with the perfect punny sentiment. Have a fantastic weekend!

Nance Leedy said...

Ooooh, I love that you stepped outside the stamp box and made your own punny sentiment--clever girl! Love those labeler stamps and you've lined them up perfectly. Great coloring too--such a happy card!
