Painted Petals for The Paper Players

Greetings, Friends! It's Sunday and time for another challenge from The Paper Players! This week the amazing Ann Schach is hostess and she has a wonderful color combo for us, Crisp Cantaloupe, Lost Lagoon and Sahara Sand. 

I've been experimenting with some new stamp sets, and I thought this color combo would work nicely with the Painted Petals set. I love this stamp set! It's so pretty, and so easy to use. I'm really loving my growing collection of photopolymer stamps!

Do you have crafting supplies that you forgot you own? Have your ordered two of something you didn't know you had? Don't lie; I know you have! I love but keep forgetting to use my spiral border punch which I think I have owned for more than a year. I created the background panel with the same stamp set using Versamark ink on Lost Lagoon paper. The pretty button is from the Artisan Embellishment Kit.

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Painted Petals
Card Stock: Whisper White, Lost Lagoon, Sahara Sand
Ink Pads: Lost Lagoon, Crisp Canteloupe, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Tools: Spiral Border Punch
Accessories: White Bakers Twine, Artisan Embellishment Kit, Tea Lace Paper Doilies

Please visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players, and we hope you'll play along with us this week, too!

Hi sandy! Love your spring card..especially the spiral border! Looks so awesome on your card.

I have ordered something I already had before... so now when I get a new catty I always highlight things as I get them....helps me remember! But then I need to remember to highlight...haha

Gorgeous card! The punching down the side really adds an interesting and cool effect and those flowers are beautiful!

Claire Broadwater said...

Sandy, your card is so pretty and spring-like! I love the way you made your DSP and I have that border punch too, and never use it. Thanks for the reminder! I can't tell you how many times I have ordered duplicates! And, Laurie, I highlight too, but must forget to do it every time! LOL! Stay warm! XX

Beautiful! I just got this stamp set this week and will have to bring it out to play! It is so sweet and feminine! And, yes, I have had so many issues of doubling up on product and losing them that my newly reorganized craft room will hopefully save me some much needed cash! LOL Now that I have found my border punch, your card has inspired to play with it! TFS

Sandy, this card is beautiful. Such a gorgeous stamp set and really shows these soft colors to their best advantage. Love the unexpected spiral edge (I have that too and don't use it enough either!). LOVE, love, love the background stamping on lost lagoon. Ties it together beautifully!

Love this! Especially the little peek of the doily. So pretty!

LeAnne said...

This is just beautiful, it's your style for sure! Love the spiral border punch it a cool effect, as does your background stamping!

Shannon Jaramillo said...

Hmmmm...I 'm pretty sure I am also guilty as charged. I'm pretty sure I own that border punch...I will have to pull it out!! Your card is so beautiful!! I love the inked background and the 'just a touch' of Calypso Coral. I would never have dared to stamp the leaves in Lost Lagoon...I obviously need to step outside of my box because it's lovely!

I love your card Sandy - the background stamped panel adds interest without being overwhelming and the spiral border punch is owned and not used - also guilty as charged! I too have been known to purchase the same stamp set twice (and yes, I mark off my catalogue with those I own!!) The thing that inspires me most about your card today though is the doily - I never know how to use these!!

Sandy, hands down my favorite PP card this week. The spiral on the side is perfect and the composition is beautifully balanced. There are so many amazing elements and yet, it is still so clean. love it.

So pretty, Sandy! I love the punched border and that single jeweled button is the perfect touch. :)
