PPA109 and Paper Players 62

Sunday, September 4, 2011

This week the challenge at Pals Paper Arts was a very interesting color combo.

And the challenge this week at The Paper Players, was to make a birthday card.  Since those cards always seem to be the first to disappear from my stash, I can always use another one of those.

At first I was going to make a card using flowers, but then as I was perusing my stamps I spied my French Foliage set and thought that Calypso Coral and Riding Hood Red would make some nice leaves.

I rock-and-rolled the leaves first with Calypso Coral then with Riding Hood Red on the edges.  Then I cut them out.  The top one is popped up on dimensionals as well as the round postmark stamp.  I briefly thought about embossing the sentiment with pewter embossing powder, but it's kind of hot here today and the thought of turning on my heat gun did not appeal to me!  Luckily my Basic Gray stamp pad is pretty juicy, so the sentiment stamped nicely on the designer paper.

Thanks for stopping by today!

WOW this is gorgeous! I love how you used the colors with the leaves Jen. I think I like the Grey ink for you sentiment instead of Silver.

The rock 'n roll was perfect for those leaves. The colors are gorgeous together and blend together so nicely. I love the French Foliage set and it's perfect for a fall birthday. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players!
