Paper Players Design Team Call

The design team over at The Paper Players is looking for two more design team members and have invited all to apply. How exciting! I already love playing along with their challenges and it would be an honor to be selected. They have requested that I attach three of my favorite projects to this blog post for them to view. Hmm, but what three? That is like asking me to pick out my three favorite stamp sets, LOL! Well, here goes... The link to the original blog post for each card is directly below it.

This was definitely my favorite Valentine's Day card this year. I love the the black, vanilla, and red color combination, and the sketch (from a challenge) is just amazing. I also like how the focal image looks heat embossed in black.

TSSC191 and Nature Walk

I've made so many cards with the beautiful images from the Nature Walk Stamp Set that it was hard to pick one. I piled on lots of fun embellishments and layers for this one using another great sketch. 

Simply Soft for The Paper Players

I love the color combination in this card, which was a Paper Players Color Challenge. I also love the layered marker technique on the image from the Simply Soft Stamp Set.

For the Paper Players team, here is a little about me and why I'd like to join them. Though I've always been "crafty", I started papercrafting in 2004 when my son joined the Marine Corps. I started a scrapbook for him, which was a much needed form of therapy for me. A friend introduced to me to Stampin Up products a few years later, and I have been hooked ever since. I'm now a demonstrator and I just love it. It gives me the opportunity to pursue my love of being creative while meeting so many wonderful people and sharing my passion. I would be thrilled to be part of the design team at the Paper Players. I think it will inspire my creativity, give me an opportunity to work alongside some extremely talented papercrafters, and just have fun!

Thanks for considering me, Paper Players, and best of luck to all the other talented participants! I've really enjoyed looking at all your entries and the great projects you posted.

Have a great day, everyone!
