Paper Player's Challenge: Farewell to SAB and Collage Curios

Good morning and welcome to a start to another week!  So since the weather forecasters are predicting a snowy, rainy day today I thought I would use some bright cheery colors for this weeks Paper Players Challenge creation.  This is also the last week of our annual Sale-a-bration promotion (ends on Friday) so I thought I would highlight several different items that you only have until Friday to earn for FREE.  The cardbase for this card is Pool Party and then I added a layer of Rich Razzleberry and then used the Sycamore Street DSP (this is definitely one of my favorites, you'll want to make sure you get some for your craft projects!  I also added some of the coordinating Sycamore Street Ribbon and button for a lovely accent. 
For the three circles I used the College Curios stamp set and stamped the script image in Sahara Sand ink and then used Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, and Island Indigo ink for the different center images.  Each of the circle were punched with the 1" circle punch and then matted with 1 1/4" scallop circle punchDimensionals make it really easy to attach each of the circles to the card so they "pop."  The final touch is to add the greeting from the Feeling Sentimental stamp set (another free SAB item) using Summer Starfruit ink.

I love how bright and cheery this card turned out, perfect to help brighten the day.  Check out the sketch layout provided, this is such a fun and easy layout that you could use for lots of different shapes, colors, and occasions.  You'll definitely want to save this layout for great idea when you're looking for new inspiration.  Make sure to take the time to see all the other great creations that have been made with the same inspiration.
Take care and happy stamping,

Pin It!


  1. This is so pretty....I love these images from Collage Curios and your BG paper is a good complement to them. The bow is nice too! We are thrilled that you played with the PP sketch this week!
    BTW, your word verification is turned on; it makes it a lot more challenging to leave comments when it is on, and we want you to get all the comments you deserve! If you need help turning it off, just send me an email!
