Paper Players 151

Good morning, Friends! This last week of June seems to be flying by! Nick has had a lot of soccer going on and we seem to be running into town several times a day. Sure keeps one busy!! I haven't even cooked dinner at home all week! I think I might be able to tonight but now I need to figure out what we might want - lol! If I can get that figured out I can go to the store while Nick is at camp this morning and time it just right so that when I'm done shopping he's done at camp and then we go straight home so nothing spoils in this heat!! Guess I had better start thinking...

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Paper Players. Not sure how I feel about this one. I thought the sketch was unique and fun but I what I visualized didn't quite come through on this card. But here it is! Card details:

  • Card base is Basic Grey
  • Layer of Basic Grey run through the Big Shot using the Framed Tulip TIEF and then adhered to card base
  • Layer of Primrose Petals
  • Stamp label image from Everything Eleanor onto Very Vanilla using Pink Pirouette, cut out and then cut the top part of label off
  • Stamp sentiment from Petite Pairs onto label in Basic Grey and then adhere to layer
  • Tie a piece of Basic Grey stitched grosgrain ribbon around layer and pop up onto card
  • Stamp scallop image in Primrose Petals onto Very Vanilla and cut out
  • Punch a circle from Basic Grey with the 1 1/4" circle punch, adhere to scallop image and pop up onto card
  • Stamp bird image onto Very Vanilla using Basic Grey ink, punch out using the 1 1/4" circle punch and pop up onto card
  • Thread some linen thread through a Very Vintage designer button and adhere to card
There you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful day!

  2. I remember cooking dinner in a pinch many a night when my kids were younger. Not easy! And for what it's worth, my card didn't come out quite as I visualized either! Love your colors and the cute bird. Thanks for joining us this week!

  3. I love it, Deb! Your color choices are beautiful and I love all the layered elements. So glad you gave my sketch a go! Delighted you played along. :-)
