Paper Players 112

DSCF8071

Hey everyone!  Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday!  Lesley has a beautiful, elegant color challenge today for the Paper Players:

Gorgeous!  You could go masculine or feminine with these colors---I chose feminine with a pretty card using Fabulous Florets and Petite Pairs:

PP112 - LeAnne

I stamped the outline images directly on the Floral District DP in Basic Gray, then stamped the main image in Baja Breeze, stamping the smaller outline images on my scrap paper first, then on top of the masked flower.  A scalloped mat of Basic Gray frames it with elegance!  I added a subtle border with an Adorning Accents folder and die on the right side.

My sketch is Cindy’s Freshly Made Sketches for this week:

And I even stamped and embossed a piece for the inside!  I just love this effect:

I can’t wait to see what you come up with using these fabulous colors!  Share it with us over at the Paper Players blog and while you’re there, check out what gorgeous creations the other designers made as well!

Remember these pop beads?  Cassidy seemed to think they were fun to put on her fingers!

Beautiful colors and and an eye-catching cards. Love the embossed panel on the inside -- it will be a sweet surprise for the recipient! I remember my daughter putting those beads on her fingers some thirty odd years ago! Some things never change!

LeAnne this is such a gorgeous card and I LOVE the stamping on the DSP (I always forget to do that). It really adds interest, and the set is one of my favs. The embossed inside is as pretty as the front.
Hugs
That little angel is too too cute.

There is just so much to love about this one, LeAnne! I love all of the scallops and how you stamped the outlined flowers on the DSP. The embossed accent adds the perfect pop, too. All of those lovely layers around the main imge are pretty great...you know I "loves" the layers! Haha! :)

Amy White said...

What a pretty card! Love how you've used both the solid and outline images and how you've stamped on the dsp to create your background. The inside looks fab too!

Ann Schach said...
