Moving Forward with Paper Players

Every year Stampin' Up! has a stamp set that helps make a difference to the Ronald McDonald House.  For each set that's purchased, Stampin' Up! sends $3.00 to this worthwhile charity.  This year's set is adorable.  And here's the first card I've made with mine.

The Paper Players challenge this week is Ann's wonderful colour challenge...

I'd pulled out some new DSP from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  It's on p. 20 and called Festival of Prints.  There's some beautiful papers in there and not all for Christmas.  I immediately thought of this paper that has all the colors for this challenge. Do you suppose Ann had been looking at this paper pack too?

And the CAS challenge at SCS this week is a sketch challenge based on this fun card by Tenia Sanders-Nelson.  I love this skewed panel.

I found the top punched piece in my scrap bag and cut the bottom piece with one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits.  The button is made from my Sweet Button Embosslit.  I cut 3 of them, adhered them together and covered with Crystal Effects.  Linen Thread has been tied through it.  I also added some Crystal Effects to the boat.

Did you notice the the sail and flag have been pieced.  I stamped twice and cut out the sail and flag from one. I rolled it a bit with a bone folder and attached over the first boat with dimensionals.  There's a pearl colored with a permanent marker on top of the mast.

I was just thinkin' that this boat looks like it's going up some kind of conveyor belt.  LOL, hope it doesn't fall off the edge!  Hopefully it will be suitable for the next birthday party Luke is invited to.  I never seem to have enough kid cards.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!
