Paper Players 56


Hi everyone!  It’s Sunday and that means a challenge from the Paper PlayersAnne Marie is our hostess today and she’s got a fun sketch for us:

PP56 sketch

To fulfill my once-a-week Christmas card challenge to myself, I made another card using the Snow Much Fun set (again), and I took the liberty of moving the sentiment because it just fit better with my image:


It’s a little smaller than a standard card, so there is room for the sentiment to extend and still fit in a standard envelope.  The base is Island Indigo with a surprise pop of Calypso Coral for a mat.  His little carrot nose and the brad embellishment help pull the colors together.   Mr. Snowman is stamped in Stazon on Crumb Cake and watercolored and markered and glittered and he is just a happy fellow:


I even glittered up the sentiment a little!


I hope that you will play with the Paper Players this week because we’d love to see your take on this fun sketch!

Cute card. Very nicely colored and should I say - the snow looks very refreshing!

Anne Marie said...

LeAnne, I love everything about this one! I just got this set and can't wait to ink it up. I especially like how the snowman and the sparkle really stand out on the Crumb Cake card stock. I love the "island" colors for a holiday card, too. Such a fun and happy card! Speaking of happy...Cassidy looks like she is having a great time. She's adorable! Have a great day! :)

OH LeAnne these colors together are amazing and I love them for Christmas! Fantabulous coloring job on your glittery snowman and I love the frosted sentiment!

I'm not one for sending Christmas cards, but this year "HOPE YOUR CHRISTMAS IS SNOW MUCH FUN" will be on cards...hoping there IS lots of snow in Indiana.

That will make moving to Florida worth it. No shoveling, no scraping, no danger of slipping on ice or using the generator.

LeAnne, I am in LOVE with this fabulous card. The Indigo and Coral are so unexpected but work amazingly well together. I can't wait to ink up my snowman set. I love the repetition of circles on this card, too. Thanks for another peek at the gorgeous Cassidy. She really is growing up!
So sorry to have missed you at convention
