Good Morning Fellow Stampers ~
Well I have to say this was kind of a wild weekend! I did have a wonderful time with my stamp group on Saturday though. And I think I got a few things done around here. Mostly in the Studio though! Hard to believe we're starting the last week of April today! Whew!
It's time for the Paper Players [PP341] challenge design for this week. I'm pulling out one of my "top picks" from the Annual Catalog, for maybe the last time. Not sure. I will say that I'm wondering why I didn't showcase this set more over this past year. It was one of my favorites the minute I saw it, and now I'm realizing I didn't play with it nearly enough! Maybe I thought it would be around for awhile and never expected it to retire so soon 😞 That'll teach me!!!
Doggone Delightful Stampin' Design Tips:
- Layerothology. This card is cut from Thick Whisper White cardstock, 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2". I've layered Calypso Coral in the background and then a cute piece of A Little Foxy designer series paper that I cut to the perfect size with a framelit from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits. This is a fabulous set of dies everyone! It gets overlooked, but don't miss it!! Finally I have a strip of Smoky Slate cardstock that was punched with the Banner Triple Punch before being adhered as the final layer. Pretty cute!!
- Fiesta Time. The Birthday Fiesta stamp set and coordinating Fiesta Time framelits made this cute design a snap!! Staged against a great big popped Stitched Shapes circle "moon" in the background, my cute little watercolored Llama saunters among the desert cacti just waiting to drop a little note to you 😉 All these pieces and parts come from the Fiesta bundle, and are easy to stamp and cut with all the wonderful pieces in both the stamp set and framelits.
- Just a Note. This simple and cute sentiment comes from the Better Together stamp set. It is stamped in Calypso Coral and cut with another framelit from the PL Cards & Labels Framelits. Easy peasy - popped with dimensionals to match the scene above. I shifted the sketch for today's challenge "down" just a little bit; kind of expanded it in size really, but stayed true to the intent. The finishing touches come with Metallics and Subtles/Brights Enamel Shapes. No pearls today!!! 😉
Do you like the way it turned out?
I think this would be an adorable little card to drop in the mail to a friend.
