Paper Players 154


Happy Sunday, peeps! I hope you are having a great weekend, and everyone returning from convention had a great time!  Today, Jaydee has a great sketch for the Paper Players and for YOU:

Woohoo, I love this……a great way to use some beautiful DPs!  I chose to use the balloons from Birthday Basics, because I hadn’t used it yet and I love all those fun colors!  Alas, I had no birthday cake stamp, so I went to My Digital Studio for some help!

Paper Players 154 LeAnne Pugliese MDS Cake and Ice Cream

The Cake and Ice Cream brush set that came with my MDS had a fun cake and party hats, so I printed out the cake in Raspberry Ripple, and the hats in Bermuda Bay and Gumball Green:


Of course, I had to add some “flame” and sparkle to the cake, hats  and candles!  And a quick little ribbon accent to my sentiment flag!  There is a wee bit of stamping…the sentiment is from the retired set, Happiest Birthday Wishes!  I am happy to add this to my birthday card stash, as it is always being depleted!

So now, it’s your turn to play with the sketch and share it with us at the Paper Players as well!  I think I see a few more cards using this sketch in my future!  Can’t wait to see what you create with it!

Playing with Grammy’s “critters”:




  1. Great sketch and fun card. Love all the happy colors.

  2. No birthday cake stamp? How can that be, Miss LeAnne? You need to remedy that situation immediately! Fun card, love that DSP.

  3. Such a fun creation LeAnne!! I just love that balloon background! :) HUGS

  4. I'm lovin' this card ... so festive! That is the cutest balloon paper! Have a great day!

  5. What colorful and glittery card...and it's great to see that DSP up close, prettier than it shows in the catalog IMO.

  6. Oh that dsp is sooooo fun! I need! GREAT card!

  7. I just love this particular dp and the sketch is perfect to show it off! Love your hybrid elements and the clever way you threaded the ribbon--fabulous!

  8. I am so loving this DSP with its cheery colors. The ribbon treatment is so unique. Of course, I love the glittery frosting.

  9. Brilliant idea with the ribbon through the banner. I've never seen this. Your colors are fantastic. Love it!

  10. LeAnne, you rocked the challenge. I LOVE the ribbon treatment. It's such a fresh way to use the ribbon. You managed to add so much detail to this card and yet its still beautifully CAS!
