PP596 Wishing You Everything Wonderful

Happy Sunday, everyone!  Hope you're having a good weekend so far!  It's Father's Day here in the US and Jaydee's Paper Players challenge was perfect for it:


Remember, Clean-and-Simple week means minimum stamping and this week, Jaydee wants only ONE layer!!! Sometimes that IS a challenge for us layer-loving stampers!  I decided to use one of the new SAB sets that will be coming out in July called Stylish Sketches.  It seemed a good fit for my one-layer card!  Here we go:

I started with a color combination from Just Add Ink:

I decided to use Thick Very Vanilla cardstock so that it would accept my watercoloring wtihout a lot of warping.  I stamped Mr Fox in Basic Gray ink using my Stamparatus, then without moving the stamp, I cleaned it and reinked it with Versamark so I could heat emboss it with clear embossing powder.  I then watercolored it with Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry inks:

I stamped a sentiment from Charming Sentiments in Basic Gray and added a Watercolor Shapes rectangle in Crushed Curry on the "wonderful"....that's a great way to make the sentiment stand out without adding layers!

Finally, I stamped a Father's Day sentiment on the inside, trimmed two corners with a corner round punch for interest, and it's all ready to go!  And since it is clean-and-simple week at Krafty Chicks, I am entering this there as well!

I hope you'll be able to create a clean-and-simple card with us this week....remember, only ONE layer and keep your stamping to a minimum!  Can't wait to see what you create; share it with us at the Paper Players! And while you're there, check out what the DT created, and give them a little love!  We all love to receive comments!  Thanks for visiting today!

I've just got to say you crushed these colors, LeAnne! Such a great masculine card - I can see it being used for numerous occasions or just because. Really, there's going to be a SAB in July? This set will be popular!

Great one layer card! Love what you did with that color challenge too! Now I need that SAB set, lol! Have a great week!

Fabulous card LeAnne! I love how you used this week's challenge colours for a gorgeous one-layer card. The bright pops of colour against the Very Vanilla really jump out at you against the fabulous neutral background. Thanks for playing along this week at Just Add Ink. Rochelle xo

I really like the way you have highlighted the sentiment. A fun Fox image, coloured in a striking way. Chantell Just Add Ink

Ok, so now I need this stamp set. Lol! I have to admit, I wasn't sure about it, but you really brought this little guy to life with the fun colors and shading. The extra pop of color on the sentiment is fab, too.

Jaydee said...

LeAnne, I love your little fox and you used the colors from the challenge beautifully. What a fabulous CAS card and I just love that sentiment. Thanks for rocking my challenge this week

Wow, LeAnne! I LOVE this image, which you have colored perfectly! I overlooked this stamp set, but after seeing you bring this fox to life, I have to have it!
