Welcome to the Paper Players color challenge!
Flowers & Bricks
The colors are black, gray, orange and purple. Halloween first came to mind, but I decided to make a Thanksgiving card, because I send more of those.
I began with a Thick Whisper White card base, and embossed the right side with the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder. Then, using a Sponge Dauber, I brushed across the bricks with Smoky Slate Ink.
My orange and purple flowers are from See A Silhouette Designer Paper. They were easy to fussy cut with my Paper Snips, because of the thick, white lines surrounding them.
I placed the orange flower’s straight edge against the bricks, and raised the purple flower on Dimensionals with the sentiment.
TIP: I glued the bottom of the purple flower to the sentiment, before placing the two on Dimensionals.
The sentiment is from the Country Home Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with a Stitched Rectangle Die.
Thanks for stopping by. You should visit the Paper Players blogs. I bet you’ll get some good ideas!
This little fairy is so adorable, I couldn’t wait to let her make an appearance. This is actually the first of my three New Wonders cards.
I just received the New Wonders Stamp Set, which is a HOST set, on page 207 of the Annual Catalog. The requirement for purchasing is to have a total of 150.00 in orders by hosting a gathering, or ordering that amount yourself, which is what I did. The stamp set can only be purchased with Reward Credits, and is specially priced at 13.50.
I was going to color the fairy, but she looked so cute stamped in Blueberry Bushel Ink, I decided this was a great example of #simplestamping. I simply stamped her on a piece of Feels Like Frost Designer Paper, which I glued to a Seaside Spray card base.
I added an inconspicuous, “for you,” from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set. And, that’s all there was to it. It doesn’t get simpler than that!
I was excited to ink up the other cuties in this set! In retrospect, here they are, in case you missed my blog the last two days. Clicking on the pictures will take you to the blog post.

This is my third New Wonders card in the last three days. The New Wonders Stamp Set has three, adorable fairies who needed equal time.
When I saw the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, I envisioned a fairy peeking through the hole in a garden wall.
The garden wall was made with Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock, which I embossed with the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder. If you use your imagination, you can see stones. A Layering Circles Die was used to cut the hole in the wall. For dimension, I raised the wall on Adhesive Foam Strips.
I stamped the fairy in Memento Black Ink on a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock, positioned so she could peek through the hole.
The fairy is colored with Stampin’ Blends, detailed in my Product List below.
Magnolia Lane Linen Thread is wrapped around the bottom of the wall.
The background is Pressed Petals Designer Paper, layered on a Mossy Meadow card base.
The sentiment is from the New Wonders Stamp Set, stamped in Old Olive Ink, on Very Vanilla Cardstock, cut with Layering Ovals Dies. The scalloped oval was cut from Noble Peacock Foil for a bit of shine.
