PP516 Peaceful Colors

Happy Sunday, peeps!  Joanne is our Paper Players hostess this week with a great color challenge that is sure to get your holiday stamping on a roll!  Here we go:

The FMS sketch was a good one this week, so I thought I'd put it to work:

And here we go:

Feels Like Frost is a beautiful DSP with photographic images on one side and silver foil designs on the other.  I chose this silver striped paper as a background for a tree from Winter Woods, stamped in Shaded Spruce, and a diecut sentiment (ret) in Real Red.  I added some Real Red scallop trim and enamel dots:

This went together pretty quickly, as it's nice, clean and simple!  And while I had that DSP on my desk, I flipped it over and created another card with the same layout; this time I used a sentiment from Poinsettia Petals, stamped in Misty Moonlight and cut with a Stitched Rectangle die.  For some extra sparkle, I added some blue Glimmer paper as a mat:

Not in the PP colors, but still very pretty!  

I hope you'll play along with our colors this week!  We can't wait to see what you create!  Check out what the designers made at our Paper Players blog!  Thanks for popping by!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Two fantastic Christmas cards, LeAnne! The red, green & white are perfect for a Christmas tree! Love the photo paper! Those icy flowers look like they've been embossed!

This is a great design and I especially like the blue one. Once I get settled in, maybe I'll be able to do The Paper Players challenge. I really like how you used that silver stripe DSP.

LeAnne, I love both the cards - both great takes on the sketch. I love the scallop trim and the addition of the red dots - perfect repetition of 3s. The background paper is gorgeous and adds an extra touch of elegance to this gorgeous card.

Lovely card, LeAnne! I love how you've used the sentiment die cut for the sketch. Perfect! :)

JoAnn said...

Two great Christmas cards LeAnne. Love the design of both of them. The blue one is pretty but the green tree on the silver stripe paper and red scallop border is perfect. Love it. TFS

Vicky Hayes said...

Two gorgeous cards using the same sketch that look SO different! Love the traditional Christmas palette for the Christmas tree one. It looks fabulous against the modern stripe and with the pretty scallop detail. The frosty DSP on the glimmer paper makes a beautiful card too. Vicky x

Linda Callahan said...

Beautiful holiday cards! love that DSP!

Claire Broadwater said...

WOW! I love both of your cards!! The Blue glitter paper is amazing and I love the red scallops/sentiment on the tree card. You made this color combo work perfectly! Stay well, My Friend!

Stef Perry said...

Both cards are just gorgeous LeAnne! I love the Christmas tree against the silver foil stripes and the red scallop borders, it is wonderfully crisp and oh so festive! Card #2 is beautiful with the blue palette and yummy glitter paper! Love them both!

Anne Marie Hile said...

Both cards are gorgeous, LeAnne! I love the versatility in that paper. Two totally different looks, both stunning1

These cards are so different yet both so beautiful! I love the festive tree against the silvery striped background, so bold and full of colour (a worthy FMS winner too) yet the second one showcases that photographic paper beautifully (I might have to CASE that one!) Great job all round!
