Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a Clean-and-Simple Challenge from Joanne this week to help jump-start your creative mojo! I hope you’ll come and play along. 🙂
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me! If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!
I pulled out the fun and simple (to me!) Label Me Bold stamp set from the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog and used its sentiments to work with the image-only Ornate Style stamp set. Which YOU will be able to get on 1 Apr! Take a look-see:
I know, I know – I keep using that new daisy image. I can’t help it very much – I just love it!! And so will you when you get your hands on it! 😉
And here’s this week’s Paper Players CAS challenge! Join the fun and show us your projects! I can’t wait to see what you create! 🙂
And the layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I embossed in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Granny Apple Green cardstock to make the card front.
To make the little strip element of the sketch, I used some SNAIL to adhere a length of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon.
The DSP strip is a piece of Daffodil Delight Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP, also matted on Granny Apple Green and adhered with Liquid Glue.
The art is the fantastic Ornate Style daisy, stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, on Whisper White and cut out with a rectangle Stitched So Sweetly die – how MUCH do you love this die set?!?
I used watercolor pencils from the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2, in Granny Apple Green for the leaves. Then the flower itself is colored in Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral (Assortment 1) with a little Crushed Curry (Assortment 2) in the middle.
Then I used Liquid Glue on the bottom half and Dimensionals on the top half to adhere it to the card front.
On a small piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Label Me Bold sentiment in Granny Apple Green and gave it a quick fussy cut. Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dot finished off the card front.
On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from Label Me Bold in Granny Apple Green on a Whisper White panel. Next to it I added another pretty little Ornate Style daisy!
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and into my Daffodil Delight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Ornate Style daisy on the front…
…and a little more Daffodil Delight Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Label Me Bold is…for me…a flyover stamp set. Easily overlooked. BUT – it’s got a bunch of sentiment options for different occasions presented in a clean-and-simple style – so…don’t flyover it – get it before the end of the catalog! And – I know you’re excited for Ornate Style and it’s bundled Ornate Layers Dies.
Be looking for those in the Ornate Garden Suite on 1 April. I hope you like!

Nuthin’ like a good game of grab-wiggle-butt with your dad when the rain FINALLY stops!!
Somebody PLEASE GET THE DOG!!
Yes – he loves the Get The Dog game. It’s ALMOST as good as the Who Can Keep the Stick Away from the Parents Game. Or the ever popular – Zoom-Skid-Slam. Which frequently involves the bowling over of the aforementioned parents cuz braking is HARD!!
All good games – YOU should try them!
