PE: A Cut Above in Paper Players!!!
Hello! Back with a few more installments of cards –
My first card, where I tried CASEing this card from Ellen Hutson–
This card didn’t turn out exactly as I thought – somehow… After trying so many backgrounds, I finally stopped at this combination.. Sigh…sometimes things just don’t turn out right.. 😦
Here are the ingredients –
Avery Elle Blossoms & Blooms stamped in Hero Arts Pale Tomato and Memento Cottage Ivy
Hero Arts All Occasion Messages
Impression Obsession Gingham stamped in Memento Grey Flannel
Mama Elephant Sew Fancy dies
My second card –
Love the way the elements are concentrated in the center in this card, but still things are simple 🙂 I used shell stamps from Que Sera Sera from K & Company and stamped them in Memento Bahama Blue & Danube Blue and fuzzy cut them out. I then made a square mask and colored the ‘beach’ using ColorBox Creamy Brown chalk ink. The sentiment comes from Bo Bunny Sentiments, stamped in Black Soot distress ink.
Submitting this one to The Paper Players #258: The Beach, Color Throwdown #355, and The Male Room Challenge #16: Vacation/On the Beach –
Made this one primarily for the Muse Challenge – I seem to be participating less and less in this wonderful challenge, even when I want to.. So, I just had to participate this time! 😛 Simple card, simple ingredients –
