Happy Sunday, peeps! Time for a new Paper Players challenge with mother-of the groom Laurie as our hostess:
This one had me stumped a little bit, as we don't go to many weddings at our age, and my anniversary is in January, although I do have a niece and nephew that are still single....anyway, it's always good to have something lovey-dovey on hand! So here we go:
I started with the Case This Sketch sketch for this week:
and the stamps I chose were the tree from the new upcoming set called Life is Beautiful, along with a sentiment from Forever Fern. First, I stamped the tree in Cinnamon Cider on a Very Vanilla card base as well as a piece of Crumb Cake DSP:
The wee little tips of the outer branches extend beyond the DSP, so I wanted the whole tree to show. I searched through some old Paper Pumpkin Valentine stamps and found some hearts, and stamped them in Real Red, Merry Merlot and Cherry Cobbler, then diecut a cardstock heart in each of the same colors for my accents.
The sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler and diecut with a stitched die from Ornate Layers...such a versatile set! I left the inside blank so I can add an appropriate sentiment when the occasion arises!
I hope you'll play along with our challenge this week! Be sure to stop by the Paper Players blog to see the lovely creations the other designers made!
A few more birthday cards!
and from Colleen:
All so pretty! Thanks ladies, I love them all! And thank you for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!
