Hi there stamping friends! I know...I am a wee bit late with my Design Team card for the Paper Players, this week. So sorry! Yesterday was a bit of a challenging day for this gal. I had a couple of hot dates with a silky-smooth dude, named Pepto Bismol...maybe you have heard of him...I hear he is mighty famous! Haha! Needless to say my "date-night" set me off my game a bit, BUT I am happy to report that today is a much better day and here I am. Although, I am not sold on being cheated out of that extra hour of sleep last night with the time change. *sigh*
This week our lovely leader, Lesley Croghan is our hostess with a "spring-tastic" color combo that is sure to get you in the mood to create. I'm on a Pool Party kick lately so you could pretty much pair that color with anything and I would be game. But, this is one gorgeous mix of colors that Lesley selected...perfect for the spring season.
I got a big ol' box of stamping goodies delivered on Friday and was super-excited to break into them for this card. I paired the color combo with the awesome sketch from Linda Callahan at Freshly Made Sketches.
I finally ordered the Send Me Soaring stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog, after making some fun projects with it at the Stampin' Up! Regional event here in San Antonio (a couple of months ago). Here is one really cool thing about this set...if you are one of those people who dread the "fussy-cut image"..then buy this set ASAP. It is super easy to cut out and you can add fun dimension to your cards without a lot of "do-over's" and anguish with the Paper Snips. I think this is the set for the stampers who aspire to be fussy-cutting rockstars simply, like me.
Hey, did you know that the heart from the SU! Owl Builder punch fits perfectly on the stamped kite in this set? It sure does! I added a pop of sparkle to the heart, with Glimmer Paper. I tried not to...but the lure of the sparkle is too hard to resist. Lol! The Baker's Twine is actually not Pear Pizzazz (it's Lucky Limeade)...but if I didn't mention it, it is kind of hard to tell, right? The rest of the supplies used are listed at the end of this post.
I sure hope you will join us at the Paper Players this week. Please stop by and see what the rest of the gals on the Design Team have created this week. You will not be disappointed!
