Masculine Cards Challenge - PP83


The Paper Players are having another fun week!!  Do you ever feel like you never have enough masculine cards?  Me too!!  Why don't these guys appreciate all the sparkle, flowers, bling and fussy cutting we do on our cards!!!  Well, it's because we just don't "get" it sometimes....as my husband likes to say.  Well, let's show them what we're made of this week!!  I decided to use the stamp set "The Open Sea".  My husband is really into anything nautical, so this is perfect for him.  I absolutely love the Nautical Expedition DSP from Stampin' Up (retired).  There are so many card variations that can be done with this paper!!  Below is the card I did for Paper Players Masculine Challenge:

HSS Challenge #106 - Color Blocking


This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments our challenge is "Color Blocking".   I started by stamping my background using an acrylic block in Green Galore, Poppy Parade & Elegant Eggplant inks.  I then stamped a flower and sentiment from Vintage Vogue in Basic Black.   For the center of each of the flowers; I punched several small flowers and stacked them.  I finished out with some Basic Black ribbon and bow with a few rhinestones at the top.   It really doesn't get much easier than that.  You have a very clean and simple card with just a touch of bling!!  Here is what I came up with below:

Flowers for My Friend

What fun this card was to make!!  I made this card initially for the Paper Players Color Challenge and then decided it would be perfect for Our Creative Corner Theme challenge too.  I simply added my tag and we were set!!

This week, The Paper Players have an exciting "Color Combination" to share.  They are asking for you to pair the warmth and brightness of Poppy Parade with the icy coolness of Pool Party...plus add two neutrals, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.  What fun I had putting this together.  Initially, I wanted to run, but then I decided to just dive in and see what happens.  Absolutely LOVE it!!! 

At Our Creative Corner; "Best Friend" is the title and theme.  Make a paper craft item (card, scrapbook page or a 3-D item) for a Best Friend!  The only other requirement, is to include a flower!  The flower can be hand-made, an embellishment, or a stamp.  I decided to make a card that reminds me of my best friend in Annapolis, MD.  This is what I made below for both challenges.

Below is the card I made for my daughter Amanda.  My girl is almost eighteen now and truly is part of my heart and soul.  I thought I would give her this card to say not only "Happy Valentine's Day" but to also say thank you for being my "sweet" girl.

"I love you sweetheart"!!!
