Paper Players 183


Happy Sunday, peeps!  It’s time for another Paper Players challenge, and today I have a clean and simple challenge for you:

Today is my daughter Dana’s birthday, and she LOVES stars, and she loves purple and silver, so I made her birthday card using both:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players 183 CAS Birthday Stampin Up Take 2

I used the Freshly Made Sketches sketch for this week:

and I used the sets Simply Stars and A Dozen Thoughts, and an assortment of ink colors and cardstocks:  Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Silver Glimmer, Silver Foil, and Brushed Silver.  The stars were all punched with the retired small star punch.  I added my sentiment on a little paper-pierced circle, stamped a little silver star from the retired Itty Bitties set, and finished it off with silver ribbon!  To make sure my ribbon stayed in place, I did a one-hole technique, taught to me by my upline, Pennie.  You can see a tutorial for it here:  One Hole Bow tutorial.

So, now how will you do your clean and simple starry card?  The design team has a plethora of fun ideas….some will surprise you….so be sure to check them out:

Forgive me if I shared this photo before, but this is a picture that Cassidy drew of Dana, including the “wrinkles” between her eyes!!!


Opening her Valentine candy!


Enjoy your day!

Great minds think alike LeAnne, I almost used this sketch for my PP card, too! Love your beautiful CAS creation, all the white space and bits of sparkle and shine. I'm sure Dana will love it too, and a Happy Birthday to her!

My daughter is a total purple gal too! Love the cool clean look of Dana's birthday card! And I love Miss C's!

Very very clever card. And oh what a wonderful little artist. Really that is amazing for a 3yr old.

What a perfect card for your challenge, LeAnne! Love all the shades of purple especially paired with silver. I'm sure Dana loved it and her special portrait too! Hope you're staying warm up there, big hugs your way!

Love your card LeAnne - the white, silver and purple colour combo with the pointy stars makes your card look really clean and crisp. Great challenge too - just managed to get my Paper Players entry in today with minutes to spare!
