Paper Players Challenge #46- A Colour Challenge

Today is Sunday which means another Paper Players Challenge for you!  This week, Ann has chosen a group of Masculine colours for us to play with!!!

I decided to ink up a brand new stamp set called "Best Dad Ever" which is avaliable in the new Mini Summer Catalogue from Stampin' Up!  The stamp set is really quite simple which is perfect for creating Masculine Cards!  I also love the many sentiments that come with the set!!!

I used my Stampin' Write Markers on the ties.  I flipped my Tie Stamp over and inked up each tie with my marker.  I did a pattern of Early Espresso and Not Quite Navy.  Then I breathed on the stamp to remoisten it, and stamped it onto Very Vanilla Paper.  The background of the card was created using the Sanded Background Stamp set in Cherry Cobbler on Cherry Cobbler Cardstock!

I hope you get the chance to join us at the Paper Players this week!

  4. LOVE it! Love these colors---so happy Ann chose them!

  5. Love this one, Lesley! I think that stamp set is so clean and classic and I love how you combined the colors. The sanded background is a great touch, too. :)

  6. Love this CAS one, Lesley. The ties look fab all inked in markers, I {heart} the sanded BG and I love all your matting. GREAT Father's day card! :-)

  7. Love this set with Ann's colors! Great card.

  8. I love how you used the challenge colors, Lesley! Such a perfect Father's Day card!

  9. Lesley, great use of the colors for this card. I love the fact that you kept the layout clean and bold. Perfect for a guy card. Great timing getting us inspired in time for Father's Day.

  10. I really love the Best Dad Ever set...haven't purchase it yet, but I better get on it! ;) The colors for the challenge work PERFECTLY for a Father's Day card!

  11. Love this card, Lesley! I may have to get this stamp set after all. I really struggled to find a Father's Day sentiment in my stamp collection and this may fit the bill. The layout is perfect for this card - CAS for Dad!

  12. I just had to come back to say that I used this card layout for my card night on Monday. I changed it a bit, but I just loved the colors together! Thanks for sharing and inspiring!
