Getting my Creativity on with The Paper Players

A cool color challenge

I got so many new stamps and such this week and I want to use them all!  But since I can only use one, or two, stamp sets at a time, I will have to carve out time each day to make something creative!  The color challenge from the Paper Players served to stretch my creativity and I’m so glad I played along!  Here is the color palette I had to work with:

The honest truth is that I probably never would have paired these colors on my own, but I forced myself to use them.  That got me thinking that, other than a floral, I would have to use 3 of something – one for each color.  Looking thru my new stamps for something that would work, the clothespins wrapped in baker’s twine from the Crafting Forever stamp set would be perfect!  I played with a layout and ultimately, this is what I came up with: Bakers Twine from Crafting ForeverI used the new Pinewood Planks TIEF to add texture to the background layer of Pool Party.  Then a layer of Lemon Lime Twist card stock behind the main Whisper White panel repeats the Lemon Lime splattered on that panel.  Touches of Texture was used for the splatters.   The saying is stamped in Pool Party ink.  Each clothespin wrapped in Baker’s Twine is stamped in the three colors from the Color Challenge: Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party, and then fussy cut.  The new Mini Dimensionals propped up these little guys with no trouble!  (Thank you, Stampin’ UP! for added those mini’s – they are the Best.Thing.Ever!)

Do you like my entry to the Paper Players?   I really, really love how this card turned out, and I have the Paper Players to thank for that!  This  really stretched my creativity but I’m so glad I participated!  Hop over to the Paper Players and see what others did with this color challenge.  But before you do, please leave me a comment and tell me what YOU think of my project.

Then make sure to come back here again because I have something juicy and zesty to share with you! I have a class tomorrow night so I may not be to write another blog post tomorrow,  even though I have my project ready to share. (I’ll try to remember to snap some photos and share them on my Facebook page.  My class is centered on the Color Theory bundle and we’ll be making some cool cards just in time for summer reading!)  Remember, if you want to get any of the products I used tonight, you can click on the item below, or just click here to start shopping.  A host code for June is listed to the right for any order you place with me that is less than $150 dollars.  Thanks,

Happy Stampin’ Friends,

Nancy
