Sunday is here and although this is usually a happy day because it is the new Paper Players Challenge for the week, this day also marks 10 years since 9/11. Lest we forget. Even though I was on the other side of the continent and a Canadian, I still mourned with the world over this devastating day...and I still do.
This week at the Paper Players, Nance has offered up a wonderful colour challenge that encouraged me to make two cards. One that was very clean and simple and one that was more elaborate. Both cards are for Christmas. I think this is a very pretty colour combo for Christmas.
The clean and simple card took no time to make at all! I love using the Snowflake Punch for an easy accent. I also inked up the Hand-Penned Sentiments set, which is my most favourite set right now! Love it SO much and I have been embossing the sentiments too! I also used the scallop trim border punch for a quick accent and voila, a CAS card was born. Hand-Stamped Sentiments is having a Clean and Simple Challenge this week, so this card qualifies!!!
Tonight I went out for dinner with good friends. I had a lovely time and when I got home, I was suddenly inspired to make another card. My friend Jane does that to me...she gets me laughing and being silly and I always feel so happy after a visit with her. Tonight we dragged our hubbies along with us and we all had a fun time, laughing and enjoying good food. It was grand! (As Jane would say!!)
Using the same colours I made a card with more detail. The sentiment is embossed with White Craft Ink and White Embossing Powder. I also inked up the bird and the leaves with my Stampin' Up Markers. Used some Crumb Cake as a neutral on the bird. The berries are all sparkling with the new Dazzling Details...I love this stuff! And I am so happy with how this card turned out. Thanks Jane!
We hope that you will join the Paper Players Challenge this week! Please be sure to visit the other DT Members to see their wonderful creations!
