Paper Players Challenge #70 {Anything Goes Fall} and BLOG CANDY!!!



This week at the Paper Players we have an "Fall Themed Anything Goes Challenge" for you!.  I have BLOG CANDY at the end of this post!!! Be sure to enter for it!

I decided to showcase the set called "Creative Elements". This one is a pretty set with a flower that looks like a mum to me. I decided to create a Fall coloured card, with a vibrant Cherry Cobbler Mum as the main focal point.


Here is a closeup of my card! Notice that I stamped my Textured Crumb Cake Paper with the En Francais background stamp and then stamped the swirl from "Creative Elements" in Soft Suede right over top. Then I coloured in the swirl with my Crumb Cake Marker.  Everything is sponged with Crumb Cake or Soft Suede ink.


I used my Scallops #2 die for the centre of the card and used my mat pack and paper piecer to make holes in the scallops.  The butterfly is stamped in Early Espresso Ink onto Very Vanilla Paper, then I fussy cut it out and hightlighted it with some pearls.  Yes that piece in behind the scallop circle is crimped! Oh how I love my Crimper!


Blog Candy Alert:  Would you like a copy of my Nature Walk Tutorial?  Here is a picture of the cards you will make with my step by step instructions.  Normally I sell this tutorial for $10 but I will draw 3 names next week to win this tutorial for free!

  19. Creatively Yours has been on my wish list for awhile so I'm glad to see someone using it so nicely, I might add. I read your profile and I have a movie to suggest, it's from the early 60's, probably a G-13 rating and it's called Man's Favotite Sport; with Rock Hudson and Paula Prentiss, It's a comedy about love, and fishing. Congratulations on your new venture also. Thanks for the blog candy offer, I'd love to win it! Karens5002@sbcglobal.net
