Paper Players 440 Best Friends


Hi stampers!  Yay, it's Sunday and time for another Paper Players challenge where the talented Jaydee is our hostess with a wonderful theme:


At first, I thought I didn't have many "friends" stamps, but as I looked, I realized I had several sentiments...not so many images, but these little buddies from the retiring Bella and Friends were perfect:


I stamped them on thick Very Vanilla cardstock and colored them with SU Blends, then die-cut them with the Stitched Rectangle die.  My sentiment is from Apron of Love, and I added a few little hearts from the Be Mine dies:


I stamped some additional sentiments (Stitched All Around) on the inside, and added a few more hearts:


My layout is very loosely based on this week's Freshly Made Sketches sketch; my image was pretty big, so the sketch sort of got lost in the interpretation, but it is there!  I used some retired Pretty Petals DSP for my background....love that stuff!


And I just realized that I didn't put the sentiment where it belonged...sigh.  That's what happens when you try to do something from memory!  Oh well!  I hope you'll play along with us at the Paper Players this week, and meanwhile, check out what the DT did as well:


Cassidy recently got her green belt!!!


Enjoy your day and be blessed!

This card is amazing, LeAnne! Bella & Friends is the perfect set for a friend card! I also love the sketch you used as well as the DSP! I actually have 3 packs of that paper that I just started pulling out recently and used! Congrats to Miss Cassidy and WTG on your adorable card! Have a great day! :)
