How excited I am to be creating my first post for Paper Players as a Guest Designer!


I get to design a project, once a week, for an entire year! This is such an awesome opportunity to be among this fabulous group of designers. Our first challenge is “crazy about critters,” and I couldn’t wait to get started!

Friends Forever


Cat Punch was excited also, when she heard the theme was “critters.” She named herself Caramel, because of the color of her Wood Textures fur. She generously offered some space for the new Dog Punch, if he could have matching fur, and be named Goldie.

Who was I to argue? I’m delighted that they decided to be “friends forever.” They wanted me to stamp this sentiment from the Happy Tails stamp set (Pear Pizzazz ink) on a heart as proof.


I used a Be Mine Stitched die to cut the heart from Botanical Butterfly DSP, and a second heart from Thick Very Vanilla cardstock for the trim around the heart.

Caramel said I should match the card base to the heart trim, so the card base is Thick Very Vanilla.


For the background, I chose a piece of striped, Subtles 6X6 DSP, which I ran through the Big Shot with the Subtle Textured embossing folder. The Be Mine Stitched die set provided the long, narrow, die to add scalloping to the sides, matching the heart trim.

I really like that they are sitting together so nicely. Not being sure what would happen when the delivery man brought Goldie to the door, I love that they chose to be “friends forever.”
