Happy New Home for The Paper Players & CASology

Greetings, Friends! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It was gorgeous here in NY yesterday and I took a nice long walk at the preserve, and loved seeing the beauty of the changing colors. A trip to the scrapbook store is on the schedule for today. A great weekend all in all! 

The amazing Nance Leedy is host this week at The Paper Players and she has an awesome sketch for us to play along with. Love it! I'll be saving it for future use, for sure.

I've been leaning more and more towards clean and simple cards lately and this one is no exception. It features the Holiday Home Stamp Set and coordinating Homemade Holiday Framelits.

I'm also playing along with the CASology challenge this week, where the cue card is "Home".

The house was heat embossed with White Embossing Powder onto Coastal Cabana Card Stock. The sentiment was stamped with Baked Brown Sugar Ink.

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Holiday Home
Card Stock: Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Baked Brown Sugar
Designer Series Paper: Lullaby
Ink Pads: Baked Brown Sugar, Versamark
Tools: Big Shot, Homemade Holiday Framelits, 3/16" Corner Punch, Heat Tool
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Subtles Buttons
Other: White Cotton Thread

I know I promised kitty pictures but I'm running a little short on time, so I promise to put them on my next post! 

Please stop by The Paper Players and visit the rest of the Design Team. We'd be thrilled if you played along, too!

I love the CAS feel to your card today Sandy - so much colour, even with all that white space. Love the strip of DSP you chose. Hope you had fun at the scrapbook store!

Great minds think alike on this stamp set, Sandy! It's perfect for the sketch and I love your house all done uo in Coastal Cabana. Like the strip of dsp you added also--it really pops on the white. Great job with my sketch, so glad you like it!

Wow! Wow! And another wow! This card is clean and simple perfection. CAS doesn't get any better than this, Sandy! I love how the color of the house is replicated in the designer paper. The button is the perfect accent.

Love the classic simplicity of this clean and simple card. I must learn from you how to do clean and simple :) I am always so impressed with the restraint that creates such magnificence!

Jaydee said...

Oh, Sandy! All that white space and spare elements makes my CAS loving heart so happy! I love the colors you used, too. I also love how you matted the central layer to draw even more attention to the fabulous DSP you used.
Gorgeous, my friend.
