My Peeps for Paper Players #234

Hello stampers! Who is ready for Spring? It's been c-o-l-d here in Texas these past few days. I know it is nothing compared to what some of you are feeling out there, but we just aren't used to it down here. I'm also sick with a yucky cold right now, so that makes it worse. Gah! So, in the spirit of bidding this winter season a fond farewell, Laurie is hosting a fantastic Spring Theme Challenge over at The Paper Players this week. Come join us!
I decided to bust into a stamp set I have had for a while but have never inked up. Aren't those little Peeps ADORABLE? The stamps are from Close to My Heart. I have been itching to use some Stampin' Up Sweet Taffy DSP on this card as soon as I saw the theme. It's so bright and cheery! The cloud DSP behind the bunnies is from a retired SU DSP pad. I can't remember the name of it, I had a little piece of it in my scrap folder and I thought it would look perfect with the "grass" in the scene. I busted out the old-school decorative edge scissors for the grass.
Now this is going to be a shocker for anyone who follows my blog regularly. My original plan was to hit these little "Peep"-ers with some glittery embossing powder. But when I tried it out, it felt like it was just "too much" with all the colors and patterns going on. So...yes, it's true...I really skipped the sparkle on this card. *Gasp!* Generally the image below is the mantra in my stamp room...
It still felt like I needed to add something to the bunnies to dress them up a bit. So, I squirted on a little Crystal Effects to highlight around the edges and I actually really like how it came out.

Please join us over at The Paper Players! The challenge closes on Friday, March 6th, 2015 at Noon (PST). Stop by and say hello to the Design Team.

  4. Those peeps are so cute Anne Marie and the perfect pairing for the Sweet Taffy DSP! I love the Crystal Effects around the edge - it gives the little bunnies some nice definition. Hope you foot is healing and you shake off your cold real soon!

  5. First, Tony looks like such a sweetie! I am so happy that he allowed his photo to be taken. Now, onto your card, I love your choice of bright, cheerfully colored DSP which goes so well with the little peeps. I sure miss the deckle scissors! I used them constantly in my older scrapbooking days. I am not sure exactly how cold it is in Texas right now, but I bet it would be a nice spring day here in Michigan! LOL Stay warm and hope you feel better very soon!
