The Paper Players Sketch Challenge


Hi everyone! 

Today I'm the hostess at The Paper Players, and I chose this sketch:


I made a clean and layered Birthday card featuring Tutti Designs Golf die. I did a bit of paper piecing, and adhered it onto some layers of Tutti Designs dotted nesting squares. Underneath I tucked a lattice from Cherry Lynn.

The Birthday sentiment is from Stampin' Up, stamped in black.

Cheery Lynn Retro Buddies





Hi everyone! 
Today my card features two of Cheery Lynn's dies from the Retro Release. There are 10 dies in this release, and they are all so fun! I find myself reaching for them again and again!


I decided to make a Birthday card for a friend's son who loves robots. I cut out one of the robots from the Robot Buddies set in black and orange. Then I added some silver foil arms and legs.

I also cut out two signs in some fun patterned paper using the Retro Sign die set.

I stamped and colored the Happy Birthday sentiment and then adhered the signs and robot. I added a few funky stars with enamel dot centers cut out from the same set.

The Paper Players Clean and Simple Bird Challenge


Hi everyone!


Today Jaydee has a Clean and Simple "Bird" challenge for us at The Paper Players:


I used the Blueprint Morning Bird die, and have him perched on a Cheery Lynn branch. I have lots of friends who LOVE birds, so I chose the sentiment from Carta Bella, "Hello Friend."




Because this is a Clean and Simple challenge, I kept lots of white space, and didn't add any extra embellishments.

Tutti Designs Butterfly Strip


Today I'm sharing a card I made with Tutti Designs Butterfly Strip. I can't get enough of this beautiful die!
TUTTI-104  Butterfly Strip


This time I made a background with Luna Lights, which is like a pearlescent acrylic paint. I put some onto a piece of glossy black paper, and smooshed another piece over the top. Two for the price of one..lol! It left all the fun looking ripples and texture.


I cut out the butterfly strip and adhered it to a scalloped rectangle. Then I stamped the sentiment and added some jewels.

Dies R Us Summertime Fun Challenge


Hi everyone! 
Today's card I made for the "Summertime Fun" challenge at Dies R Us

Grab our Badge!


Sitting outside is always a favorite lazy days summer pastime for me, so I stamped this fun image from Art Impression onto a Tutti Design dotted nesting rectangle. I colored it with my Copics, and added the sun and clouds from Cherry Lynn. Then I backed that onto a red Tutti Designs scalloped stitched rectangle.

Memory Box Tool Border.....Happy Father's Day!


Hi everyone!

I can't believe it's almost Father's Day! This summer is flying by. I'm glad I had this card already made and ready to go. I haven't had much time in my craft room lately. 


I started out with a piece of wood grain paper and added some Cheery Lynn pierced circles. I stamped the sentiment on the white one, then added a few tools and some enamel dots. Then I adhered the tool border from Memory Box.

The Paper Players Color Challenge


Today Nance has a color challenge for us at The Paper Players:


I used some fun new retro dies from Cheery Lynn:

B943 - Retro Television Die Set Colored Image
Cheery Lynn Designs - Retro Signs Die Set - 8 Die Set - B945
We actually had a TV something like this when I was growing up! I don't remember any rabbit ears though.

I  decided to make a set of cards, one in crumb cake and one in white. As you can see, I did some layering and cut out a scalloped rectangle in lemon lime, and also one in a cool neutral patterned paper that matched the TV perfectly! I used the coral to accent my black retro TV.

I also added some enamel dots for the knobs...I DO remember having to turn a TV on and off..no remotes. My brother and I used to argue about who had to get up and change the channels! It was usually ME..lol!

The sentiment is stamped in black from Jillibean Super Star.
