Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a color challenge from Joanne – and…not going to fib ya – it pushed me out of my comfort zone – which is good for us, right? 🙂 I know it’ll give your creative mojo a bump, so I hope you’ll come and play along with us! 🙂
If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me! If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!
I thought of the Boho Indigo DSP right away when I saw the challenge colors – and worked out how to let it be the “cake” – with the rest of the colors as the “icing”. I decided to play with the Today’s Tiles stamp set along with elements from the Boho Indigo Product Medley…take a look-see:
And here’s our Paper Players color challenge badge! Come play!
I also pulled design inspiration from this week’s Global Design Project CAS(E) The Designer challenge.
I started with a mosaic-looking paper from the Boho Indigo DSP that I matted on Melon Mambo for the card front. I matted a piece of the pretty, embossed Very Vanilla cardstock from the Boho Indigo Product Medley and added it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I cut the large medallion die from the Field Tiles Die set in Night of Navy and again in Pool Party. The Night of Navy die cut is adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.
Using a few Glue Dots – where they’re hidden by the other pieces of the design, I adhered a Gold Hoop Embellishment.
I snipped out the center section of the Pool Party die cut and popped it over the hoop with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I cut two smaller labels with the Field Tiles dies – the larger in Mango Melody and the smaller in Very Vanilla. I stamped the Today’s Tiles sentiment on the Very Vanilla label in Pool Party Ink.
I adhered the Mango Melody cut with Liquid Glue and popped the sentiment on top with a couple of Dimensionals.
Using a Glue Dot, I adhered a small bow that I tied with the Night of Navy 1/8″ Ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack. I stuck a sweet Paper Flower – from the Boho Indigo Medley – with a little bit of Liquid Glue.
Finally – I added a few light blue gems from the Holiday Rhinestone Jewels and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped a second Today’s Tile sentiment in Pool Party on a Very Vanilla panel. Then I added a flower image from Boho Indigo in Night of Navy – and a Melon Mambo-matted strip of the DSP across the bottom of the panel. I stuck some of the Holiday Rhinestone Jewels into the middle of the flowers, too. Just cuz I could! 😉
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Melon Mambo mat and into my Mango Melody card base, adhered the card front with Liquid Glue and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got some Boho Indigo flowers on the front…
…and I added some more of the mosaic-y patterned paper to the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I was pretty happy with how this turned out – I like the pops of orange and pink with the cream and Night of Navy, don’t you? The Today’s Tiles stamp set – is cool – and has some neat sentiments! Plus I really like the layering possibilities with the Field Tiles dies – bundled with Today’s Tiles for a 10% Savings!
And the Boho Indigo Product Medley is just…wunnermus!!
I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix
After all Finn’s work – keeping the squirrels and chippies and other marauders as far away as he can dog-e-ly do….
I’m pretty sure it’s a chipmunk. Or squirrel. But…we told Finn a little white lie – told him it’s a rare tomato-eating Dementer – and there’s no protecting from them.
Just to protect his feelings….
