Paper Players 327

Hi everyone!  It's time for another Paper Players challenge, and Sandy has chosen a cool color challenge for us...I always love these!

In fact, I already had all these pieces laying on my desk, just waiting to be assembled, so this was an easy one for me!  I got some new goodies right after Christmas, and this pretty Cottage Cutz die was one of them:

It's a little fussy to get all the pieces out, but it's worth the time!  I mounted it on a stitched oval and used some black and white snowflake paper from my stash!  Of course, some red glimmer paper and sparkly baker's twine always are fun too!  And I added a little snowman from Jar of Cheer on the inside with my sentiment:


Hope you'll have time to play with us this sure to check out what the DT came up with as well!

and a super-cute one of Cassidy and my sister's grandson Jamison:

Isn't he dapper with his little bow tie?  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

  6. Love your new Christmas goodies! That's an awesome die and beautiful card! Looks like you had loads of fun at the Birthday party:)

  7. Love these cards! I came across an old one I out craft was larger than the envelopes so I set it aside to make and envelope for it! I also filed in a binder the directions for the smaller one that fit an A2 envelope! I think I am also going to make a few of these for my stash...some for kids and some for women and of course masculine! Really would like to learn how to make the rectangles out of the squares for the Stitched Shapes! Looking forward to that!

  8. Wonderful card LeAnne! I like how delicate the die cut words look. Happy 60th to your sister, great pics!!

  9. Beautiful card, LeAnne! Love the fabulous die cut sentiment, it's so intricate. What kind of adhesive did you use to adhere it? Happy Birthday to your sister, looks like it was a fun party!

  10. Beautiful! Love the red sparkle and twine!!!

  11. LeAnne, I love the glimmer paper peeking out and the stacked cutouts are fabulous. I agree with Sandy.... HB to your sister and it does look like a fun party!
