Paper Players 206


Hi peeps!  I missed everyone SO MUCH this last week, but it was nice to have a break from blogging and commenting, especially coming back from convention!  Ann is our hostess for the Paper Players this week, and she has a wonderful sketch for us:

My card is a wee bit busy, but I just love this Flashback DP; it has so many cool, sort of retro designs, I just had to mix them up!  We got this fun You Rock stamp at convention FREE, so I stamped it in Smoky Slate on Soft Sky cardstock and did some fussy cutting:

I did flip the sketch so that my rocking chair wasn’t rocking right off the card, and I used a couple different patterns from the DSP pack for my banners, adding a Naturals Ivory banner for this middle, accented with a Smoky Slate sliver and some dry embossing.  When I mounted my stamp set, I cut the sentiment apart, took it off the sticky rubber and mounted it on cling-mount rubber so that I could use it with other images as well! 


I also added a little file tab for fun, stamping it with a new little argyle image from a set in the upcoming Holiday mini called Project Life Holiday Cheer!  Finally, I added a little heart “pillow” sitting on the seat of the rocker!  I can think of a few friends that ROCK in my book!  Maybe I’ll send it to one of them!


I hope that you find this sketch inspiring and you’ll want to play along with us this week!  Check out the other designers’ creations at the Paper Players, or just click on the links below!

Hmmm I thought about cutting off the sentiment too,but wasn't brave enough to do it! Love that DSP as well.....the blue rocker looks great with it. And it looks like you and I didn't get the blue memo for that photo. I was obviously too busy eating ice cream to read memos! Great photo!

Terrific card, such a fun mix of patterns LeAnne and a cute picture of you and friends! I'll bet you missed Cassidy and she you :)

Darlene Gabriel said...

It's good to see you back. I'm glad you had such a good time at convention and then took a little time for yourself when you got home. Great card today. I love this rocker. I like the chevron embossing on the banner. What fun papers.

Dawn Tidd said...

This is so cute, LeAnne! Love the DSP with that rocker and its heart "pillow". :) I bet Cassidy missed you!

Joanne James said...

I love that riot of patterned paper LeAnne - it really lets the pale blue rocking chair stand out! The heart pillow too is such a nice touch. Great photo of you and the ladies - looks like you were having FUN! Missed you - welcome back! xx

Ann Schach said...

Totally adorable, LeAnne! I love the heart pillow and the whole retro vibe. Great picture of all of you!

Nance Leedy said...

Oh my, this is retro FUN! What a fabulous job of fussy-cutting. Like everyone else, my favorite part is the pop of the red heart pillow--such a great touch. What fun we had at convention; I"m sure Cassidy missed you just as much.


Andrea W said...

That rocker stamp is terrific and I love the colors you used on your card! Glad you had fun at convention and welcome back.

LeAnne, how much fun was it to finally meet! Love our picture together! Ok, this card rocks! I just love all the patterned paper you used. So bright and cheerful. It made me smile! Great use of your new stamp. Wish we lived closer and we could share the chair and the camera! XX

LeAnne, you rocked this mixture of DSP. I would never be brave enough to use them all together, but you pulled it off beautifully. The little heart pillow is the perfect finishing touch. Fabulous!
