Postage Collection for Paper Players #156

Hello there! Happy Sunday to you! This week at the Paper Players the lovely LeAnne is our hostess and she has a fabulous sketch to take for a spin. I love this layout! It automatically went into the "favorites" file to use over and over again. Oh, and it is LeAnne's birthday, too. Please stop by her blog to share some simles! 

I have been absolutely swamped lately so I created my card a little late this week. I had the pleasure of spending Sunday afternoon with a wonderful friend. We had a blast talking, laughing and creating. Thanks Amy for a great visit...and I even got to fawn over her gorgeous dogs, so that was an added bonus! :) 

Amy let me use quite a few of her supplies today, including her Postage Collection stamp set (which I have at home but didn't bring), the new Poetry Print Embossing Folder along with lots of punches. It's fun to stamp at a friend's house to get some much needed inspiration. I brought along my Modern Medley DSP and kind of wanted to create a "clean vintage" style card. I don't know if that is an actual "style" or not, but I went with it anyway. I love how it came out! Layers, pearls, patterns and texture.  

Please join us over at the Paper Players The challenge is open through Friday, August 2nd, 2013 at Noon (PDT). Stop by and say hello to the rest of the Design Team to see what they are sharing this week.

  1. I just LOVE this, Anne Marie! I haven't seen this cute little set used too much and I love your bold color combination! The layers and embossing add so much to this elegant creation! Thanks for making my sketch look great! Glad you were able to spend some quality time with your friend!

  2. Oh that little bicycle is so sweet! Love all your layers and the embossed detail at the bottom is a great touch! So glad you got some fun crafty time in this weekend! ((hugs))

  3. This is gorgeous, Anne Marie! I love the black and vanilla combined with cherry, just stunning, especially in the patterns you chose. There's nothing more fun than stamping with a friend!

  4. Wonderful card! Love all the layers!

  5. Ann Marie this is so cool. Love the DSP with embossed scallops... so clever! Of course Red/White/Black is looks FAB too. hugs

  6. Ann Marie you took the simple look of Black, Vanilla and Red and stepped it up and UP! But still maintained a crisp sharp look. Very well done!

  7. This is wonderful! The patterns give this such an elegant look and the pearls pair with them so well! Gorgeous card!
