Happy Birthday To You!--PP #341 and SSC151

April 23, 2017

I am back from a wonderful trip to Aruba.  It was such a beautiful island.  The water was gorgeous and the time away refreshed my soul.  This was the view from our room.  Breathtaking!  



It's Sunday and time for new challenges at The Paper Players and Sunday Stamps!

The lovely Sandy is our hostess this week at The Paper Players.  Her sketch is fabulous and very versatile.  So many possibilities!  Since I was gone all week, I combined this sketch with the lovely color palette at Sunday Stamps!



Please make sure to use at least 3 colors from the color for Sunday Stamps



My card is created on a white card base.  A rectangle strip of green wood grained card stock was used for the background.  I cut the green square with a stitched die.  The lily is stamped in three shades of yellow using the Altenew Layered Lily stamp set.  I used 3 shades of green ink on the leaves.  The leaves and flower were cut out using the matching dies.  I stamped the sentiment in black on a banner cut with a stitched die.  Clear enamel dots were added to resemble water droplets on the flower. 



Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from both design teams and I hope that you will play along with our challenges this week.

April 16, 2017

HAPPY EASTER to all of you that celebrate!  I hope you have a very lovely day!

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!  

The lovely LeAnne is our hostess this week.  Her challenge is CAS: "On the Go!  Please use a vehicle on your Clean and Simple card.  Remember to limit your layers and embellishments.  We can't wait to see what you create!  Have fun! 



My card is created on a white card base.  I used a blue and white polka dot background cut with the SugarPea Design Zig Zag Stitched dies.  I stamped the sentiment and plane from the Your Next Stamp Just Plane Amazing stamp set.  I used the matching dies to cut out the plane. The plane was colored with Copic Markers.  I cut the two clouds from the Mama Elephant Stitched Sky dies.  I sponged distress ink on each cloud. Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents were used on the plane.

Way To Go! --Sketch Saturday #459

April 15, 2017

It's Saturday and time for a new challenge at Sketch Saturday!



Our sponsor this week is Star Stampz.  You will receive three digital stamps of your choice if you are the winner this week!  How fun is that?




My card is created on a white card base.  I cut a black layer for the background and found this baseball stitched paper in my stash for the next layer.  I colored the digi stamp Gotta Catch 'Em from Star Stampz with Copic Markers.  A white banner and a button with twine were added to the sentiment.  My GRANDdaughter plays softball, so she will love this card.  





Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I love to hear from you!
