Happy Sunday, peeps! Wow, summer is back again...it's been hot this weekend! Hopefully we can cool off looking at my latest Paper Players card! The amazingly-talented Claire came up with a fun new challenge...a tall and skinny sketch!! How fun is that?!
My card is definitely skinny....2 1/2" across and 6" tall!! This little gnome (Fun Stampers Journey) was calling my name, he hadn't been inked up for a while, so I stamped him twice, once in Real Red and again in Smoky Slate, and did a little cutting and pasting:
After coloring in his nose and beard with Blends, I stamped a Real Red heart, some trees in Smoky Slate to create a backdrop, and they were all mounted on a piece of Whisper White cardstock embossed with a Nordic pattern. It's too bad you can't see the Wink of Stella on his beard, it's quite sparkly! A piece of retired SU DSP worked perfectly for my vertical panel!
A couple more images on the inside and a fun Christmas sentiment from Paper Smooches, and my card was done:
And since the Christmas Kickstart Challenge is featuring Scandinavian designs this week, I am entering it there as well!
I hope you'll play with our sketch this week...there is lots of room for creativity, and the tall and skinny feature will challenge you to do something different! Be sure to check out what the Design Team did at the Paper Players blog! See you there!
Talk about a dog just enjoying the day:
I am sure Eden is thinking "Wayne, you've got a nice drink....where's mine?" LOL Enjoy your day and be blessed!
