The Paper Players Challenge #70

Hey Everyone

Betcha didn’t expect a post from me on a weekday!  It’s a public holiday here in Melbourne due to the running of the Melbourne Cup so I’ve had the day off work and had a chance to play in my room.  My post tonight is for this weeks Anything Goes Fall Theme Challenge at The Paper Players.  I’m a little bit addicted to my spritzer tool which I pulled out again for a vintage-y background look on the top note.  I then played around with daubing the leaves and ended up using old olive and then soft suede to hopefully give them a “real” look.

Here’s what I created this week:

Thanks for taking a look.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, First Edition DSP
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede Marker, Soft Suede, Old Olive
Stamp Sets: French Foliage, Elements of Style
Other Products: Victoria Crochet Trim, Button, Linen Thread, Antique Brad, Seam Binding

Hey Again Everyone

My next card combines two challenges – Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and The Play Date Cafe Challenge.

This is the sketch from Mojo Monday this week:

This is the colour palette from The Play Date Cafe Challenge this week:

Here’s my card:

I’ve been wanting to use the typewriter from Established Elegance since I first got this set, but I could never get it looking quite right (I felt it was a little big).  I figured that if I didn’t start using it soon, I’d never use it – in the end I don’t think it looks too bad on this card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cardstock: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Beau Chateau DSP
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Stamp Sets: Established Elegance, French Foliage, Artistic Etchings
Other Products: Victoria Crochet Trim, Hemp Twine, Circle Punches, Basic Pearls, Scallop Edge Punch

The Paper Players Challenge #69

Good Afternoon Everyone

I’m a little late with my post today for The Paper Players Challenge, but better late than never!  I made a card for their challenge, but as I was cleaning up my room I came across this unused photo frame and tested the card out to see what it would look like framed.  I was pretty pleased with the end result and am not sure now whether to give it away to someone special or keep it for myself!

Here’s what I came up with:

Thanks for stopping by.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Love Letter DSP (retired), Cherry Cobbler
Ink: Black Stazon, Crumb Cake
