Minty Thanks for The Paper Players


Greetings on this lovely Sunday, my friends! I am looking forward to a much needed day off today. Over at The Paper Players, my sweet friend LeAnne is hostess, and she has a fun tic-tac-toe board for us to play along with. I opted for the bottom row: Ribbon, Mint Macaron and Oval. 


I decided I'd let the Mint Macaron be the key player and went with a CAS monochromatic card. I had fun mixing up some patterns from the Pretty Petals stack. I added a snippet of ribbon and a tiny Vintage Trinket brad.


Products Used (All Stampin' Up)
Stamp Sets: Endless Thanks
Card Stock: Whisper White, Mint Macaron
Designer Series Paper: Pretty Petals
Ink Pads: Mint Macaron, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Tools: Big Shot, Ovals Dies
Accessories: Very Vanilla Tafetta Ribbon, Vintage Trinkets

I thought I'd share a few photos of my recent trip to Orient Point, at the east end of Long Island on the north fork. There are over 100 wineries in this area and the scenery is amazing.


Here it is, the very end of Long Island, at Orient Point State Park.


In the background you can see the ferry to Connecticut.


The antique carousel in Greenport.


We had lunch at Noah's, including crab stuffed delived eggs and duck rillette.


After lunch we took the ferry to Shelter Island.


I was amused by the image on my GPS. That's us, the little red arrow in the middle of the water!

I hope you enjoyed a few pictures of Long Island. Now head over to The Paper Players and check out the creations of the rest of our Design Team. Please play along if you can, too!

Inky hugs,

  9. Perfect, Sandy! Such a wonderfully clean design. Plus, as a Midwestern gal who has never been east, I loved seeing the pictures of Long Island.

  10. Sandy, I love that you let Macron be the shining star. The pops of black and the layered DSP are perfect. A fabulous CAS card.
    Your little red arrow in the middle of the sea is wonderful - as are your photos. Sounds like you had a great late summer trip.

  11. What a gorgeous CAS card Sandy - the Mint Macaron is so calming and I love the slivers of co-ordinating patterned papers. Cute ribbon and brad treatment too. Great holiday photos; I've never been to Long Island - I might have to add it to my travel destination wish list!
