Paper Players Color Challenge

I made this card today for a color challenge on the Paper Players blog site.  These are such great colors and the little bit of black makes them really pop.  I used Timeless Textures for my background and stamped it in white.  This stamp set is a great one for backgrounds.  I also used one of my favorite stamps from the Occasions Catalog, Picture Perfect, for the starfish.  And of course, I had to add Wink of Stella all over the starfish!!   I die cut "hello" and stamped on top of it with my white ink.  It is so easy to adhere that tiny die to the card using the Fine Tip Glue Pen - another favorite product!!

Be sure to check out the rest of the projects for this challenge!

Up, Up and Away!

I haven't made a card for a challenge in a long time.  I used to search out challenges and make cards to fit them but I haven't done that in a while.  Yesterday when I was looking at different blogs to get some inspiration, I came across the Paper Players Challenge with the theme of "up up and away." With so many balloon stamps available, I decided to make this card.

I stamped the sunburst with Versamark, sprinkled white embossing powder over it and sponged the area with Pool Party.  I used the Balloon Punch and punched out 3 balloons from Designer Paper.  I ended up not stamping any balloons after all!  I actually did stamp them (on the other side) but liked the un-stamped balloons best.  I die cut "happy" with framelets and glued them to the middle of the card.  I stamped the stars (from Balloon Celebration) with Pool Party and Pink Pirouette ink.  I used glue dots under the balloons to anchor the silver cord.  I used the Washi Tape punch for "birthday" (from Celebrate Today).  Next was to layer the white card stock onto Pink Pirouette and then onto the Pool Party card.

What do you think?
