Happy Sunday, everyone! It's Paper Players time, with Joanne as our lovely hostess and she has a lovely challlenge for us, very timely, too:
I chose to make a note-card sized card; I had this Berry Burst glimmer paper diecut heart floating around on my desk, getting in my way, for a couple of weeks, so I finally decided to put it to use for my card today! Here we go:
Since playing around with the Adoring Hearts bundle, I've got LOTS of these Basic White embossed hearts floating around too, LOL! I used an old SU Triple Heart punch to punch a third heart from Bubble Bath glimmer paper, then mounted them all on a piece of Berry Burst gingham paper. The bottom portion of the notecard was also embossed with the Dotty Hearts embossing folder. The sentiment is new-to-me, it's from Waffleflower, called Sentiment Additions...love it!
My final addition was some Sweet Sorbet glittery ribbon! A nice change from red, although I love red hearts too!
I hope you'll find some inspiration from our challenge this week...I love that little puppy image on the mood board....SO cute, I hope someone will do something inspired by that sweet face! Check out what the other designers did at the Paper Players and share yours too!
On Friday, I gave a little class at a local retirement community and we made two projects for Valentine's Day. A new customer of mine is a resident and she is an experienced stamper (blessedly!!!) and she got all the details lined up for me and helped as my very able assistant as well! I don't even have a photo of the projects we made because I gave them to her for helping me, although the card was very similar to the one featured here! You can see them stamping the project below:
I learned a LOT about stamping with these older sweeties...they were very keen to make the projects but I need to remember that their fingers may not be as agile as mine! But they were very patient, even when we made a few blunders, and are already wanting to do something next month! I will say, my hands were covered with Berry Burst ink by the class was over, LOL! But it was fun! And their facility is beautiful! Looking forward to stamping with them again soon!
Thanks so much for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!
