Hello stamping friends! Guess what? I found another challenge site I wanted to try out 🙂
Actually, I’ve been aware of the Paper Players challenges for a while, but haven’t had a chance to join in until now.
Here’s their sketch for this challenge:
Here is my card interpretation
I just love the little chicks in this stamp set! It’s called For Peep’s Sake, and it’s available in the Occasions Catalogue. I chose this pattern from the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper because it reminded me of decorated Easter eggs 🙂 I pulled the ink colours I used from the DSP – life made easy!
I used my Stampin’ Write Markers in Daffodil Yellow, Crushed Curry, Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, and Strawberry Slush to colour the chicks and the egg, then stamped onto Whisper White cardstock. I wanted to add a bit of colour to the white, but not too much, as the DSP is so colourful. So, I used my Aqua Painters with Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz inks to add a ‘sky’ and some ‘grass’. The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede on Whisper White cardstock, and punched out using the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. I sponged the edge of the circle using Sponge Daubers and Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral inks – dual tone, just like the circles on the DSP. (yup, I’m clever like that! LOL) Finally, the 3 banners in Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Crushed Curry card stocks finish off the card, all on a base of Soft Suede cardstock.
I hope you like this card, and maybe find some inspiration for creating one of your own. Head on over to the Paper Players page, and check out their design team cards, and other card submissions for this challenge. You’ll find lots of great ideas there!
Until next time – happy stamping!
