A Color Combination for Paper Players467

I am sharing a rather different color challenge for Paper Players challenge.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the colors.  But when I first saw them I had to think a minute.  Now however, I am in love and trying to figure a way to incorporate some Bermuda Bay into my Christmas decorations.  I went wild with my colors last year so I’m mostly there with two of the three colors.

 

 

What do you think?  I believe these bright colors all work wonderfully together.  The only problem I had was there is not a Gorgeous Grape Stampin’ Blend.  I made do with the Stampin’ Write Marker in Gorgeous Grape and actually the lines it left on the stocking topper works.

Here is the challenge from Paper Players:

Christmas Love for Pals Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “Layer It Up”  – showcasing our favorite Designer Series Paper and embellishments.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

For my “Layer It Up” card, I chose the Christmas Rose Bundle and the beautiful Christmastime Is Here Designer Series Paper.  I LOVE this suite of products and it was perfect for what I wanted to create based on our theme.

 

 

The focal point is this beautiful Rose image.  I stamped the large rose image in Memento Tuxedo Ink and then used the individual stamps to “color in” the image.  It was so much fun!  I didn’t get the exact position on some pieces and I am okay with that.  It gives it character I believe. 🙂  After I finished stamping, I cut out the image using the matching die.

The Gold Shimmery Ribbon is part of this suite of products and works so beautifully with the DSP that has the gold running through it.  The sentiment is part of the set and the shape is a part as well.  I love the coordination.

The background is almost as pretty as the flowers.  It is two different pieces of the Christmastime Is Here Designer Series Paper.  To finish off this card, I added some of the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the roses and on the sentiment layer.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, December 11th, for our Retirement Fun Fold Party when our Design Team showcase projects using retiring products from the Holiday Catalog with a fun fold card. Don’t miss the fun!

Simple Get Well

I have a quick and simple  Get Well card or Thinking of You type card to share today.  Sometimes it seems we need these type cards on short notice.  I like to have some of these on hand so I can send them right away.  My memory isn’t what it used to be!! LOL!!

 

Stampin' Up!, Healing Hugs, Inspiring Iris, Jackie Beers

 

Fussy cutting may not be your idea of fun.  But this rose and leaves actually are easy to cut out.  I stamped them originally on a layer and just didn’t like the look, so out came the paper snips.

The sentiment is from one of my new favorite stamp sets, Inspiring Iris.  It is layered using the Story Label Punch and the Timeless Label punch.

The gorgeous background paper is from the Christmastime Is Here Designer Series Paper.  I have used it with the Christmas Rose set.  But isn’t it great to see that it works on a non Christmas card?  Another reason to purchase the bundle of products.

Thanks for visiting today.  Please return tomorrow.  I am participating tin the Pals Blog Hop by Mary Fish.

Pressed Petals

Happy Veteran’s Day to all of our Veterans.  I am so thankful for each and every one of you!

A friend’s birthday was yesterday and she loves the more rustic look.  I don’t do that very well.  I lean more towards brights.  But in looking through the designer series paper, which is where I get a lot of color ideas, I found what I thought would work.  It is the Pressed Petals DSP.  I have used the solid “burlap or linen” sheet of paper previously.  I hope she and you like this one.

 

Stampin' Up!, Pressed Petals, Beautiful Bouquet, Jckie Beers

 

I paired the flowers with the burlap / linen background with Crumb Cake and Merry Merlot.  I added Rococo Rose as a lighter pop of color.   I also added the solid piece of the burlap / linen sheet behind the sentiment.  The flower and sentiment are from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  I had not utilized that set in some time and am thrilled with how well it worked here.

Do you recognize this layout?  It is a landscape version of the deer card I did last week for the sketch challenge.

Here is the layout card I mentioned:

 

And here is the card I did previously using the linen look DSP:

 

 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I will have another new project for you tomorrow.

Wonderful Adventure

I have a very different card for you today. It is quite different from my normal style.  I have layers and layers of die cuts.  This bundle of products lends itself perfectly to this style of card.  So I had to give it a try.

 

 

See what I mean???  Very unlike my normal card.  But I am happy with this one.  The products are the Sea of Textures and the Under The Sea matching Dies.  They were previously a bundle, but carried over to this current annual catalog and are no longer at the 10% bundle discounted price.  They are definitely still a great deal though.

I chose “water” colors of Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, and Pool Party card stock to make this card.  I added in some Soft Suede and Sahara Sand as well.

I love this sentiment!  What a great one for encouragement for a graduate or someone headed to a new job or off to college.  I paired it with the Story Label and Timeless Label punches.  My sweet friend Julie DiMatteo is who showed me how well these two punches layer together.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back on Monday for more new projects.
