The Paper Players Sketch Challenge


The Paper Players new challenge is a sketch from Nance:



I went with a Christmas card using Cheery Lynn's new Merry Christmoose set.

 I just think that moose is SO cute! 

I added a plaid bow and a matching scarf. The banner is from MFT's Blueprints #20, and I stamped the sentiment on it from Sweet and Sassy called,"Born this Day." The stitched rectangles are from Cheery Lynn too. I also added some sparkly dots from Stampin' Up.

I hope you will join us!

Hero Arts Grateful Leaves



The challenge from LeAnne at The Paper Players is:



For my Clean and Simple fall card I decided to use Cheery Lynn's new Acorn's and Leaves die set. 

I picked some fall plaid paper and cut out a CL stitched rectangle. Then I chose a few colors from the plaid and cut out my leaves.




I tied them together with some twine and adhered them onto the plaid rectangle. Then I added a sentiment from Hero Arts called "Grateful Leaves"at the bottom. I left lots of white space, and added no extra embellishments, even though I really,really wanted to add some enamel dots.....LOL!




I hope you will join us!

Dies R Us "Fancy Corners" Challenge


Hi everyone!

The challenge at Dies R Us is "Fancy Corners!" 



Grab our Badge!



What a fun idea for a challenge, and a new one for me. I had fun looking at my dies trying to find some with fancy dancy corners. I finally decided this die from Cheery Lynn would do perfectly!

It's called Fiona's Magic Mirror, and I think the corners are very fancy. Actually I think it all looks fancy so I turned it into a wedding card. I turned the Christmas Bells from Cheery Lynn into wedding bells. The only embellishment I added was one pearl. 


I can't wait to see the cards you all make ...it will be fun to see what everyone comes up with for corners!

Cheery Lynn Let it Snow set



Hi everyone!

It's been SO hot this week I felt like singing, "let is snow, let it snow, let it snow" while I was making this card!

I'm not really ready for snow yet, but I sure have had lots of fun making Christmas and winter themed cards with Cheery Lynn's new die release. One of my faves is the "Let it snow" sentiment. I cut it out in some white glitter paper, you can get a better look here:


The snowflake is layered with CL's Snowflake #2, emboss and cut snowflake, and a star from the Let it Snow set.


I backed it all on a stitched rectangle.

The Paper Players Color Challenge


Hi everyone!

Jaydee has a new color challenge for us at The Paper Players:

 Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz, Silver and White!

I've been on a roll making Christmas cards the last few weeks, so I decided to make one for this challenge too. I started out with some Cheery Lynn dies from their new release..the Classic Christmas Tree and the fun Snow Day Bear. I think he's so cute on his sled! I dressed him in a green plaid scarf and hat.

I backed him on a Cheery Lynn pierced circle, stamped the sentiment from Elizabeth Crafts, and added a pierced snowflake from My Favorite Things. The last thing I did was to add a few sparkly pink enamel dots for Stampin' Up.




Be sure to check out the rest of the Paper Players Design Team!



I hope you will join us!

Happy Little Stampers Christmas Joy Set





Hi everyone!


There's a brand new September "anything goes with dies" challenge over at Happy Little Stampers!!!






I decided to make a Christmas card set featuring Happy Little Stampers "Christmas Joy stamp set." 



I used a CL snowflake and border die on each card, and stamped the sentiments for HLS "Christmas Joy" on the bottom in black.



I added some matching enamel dots in the centers of the snowflakes.

Quick and easy.
