pp226Welcome to my first Guest Designer post for The Paper Players! I am elated to be playing along! So much pressure to work with these very talented stampers, I don’t mind tellin’ ya! And the first challenge? One of the hardest – use something recycled or repurposed.

My card, seen below, has two items that fit the criteria. One is the felt flower that was a leftover I just couldn’t toss out after dyeing it in Crisp Cantaloupe several months ago. The second is a piece of stamping rubber that was used to pop up the sentiment – a very handy idea when you suddenly realize that you just ran out of dimensionals! Believe me – it happens!

Seasonally Scattered, Holiday Invitation, Valentines

Challenge Rules:

  1. Create a NEW paper, or digital, project.
  2. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
  3. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
  4. Please link your card to no more than three challenges, TOTAL. Entries linked to more than 3 challenges, including ours, will be deleted without notification.
  5. Have fun!

I am sneak-peeking the very pretty new Stacked with Love DSP Stack. The patterns in this paper are perfect for Valentine cards but will be great for so much more as well! The “Love” stamp is from the Seasonally Scattered stamp set and is perfect for a dramatic CAS card. The “Celebrate” is a very useful stamp from the Holiday Invitation stamp set. Both of these stamp sets will be retiring so you should definitely order by tomorrow if you like them!
