Playing With Paper!

paperplaypp233Playing with paper has been part of my life for 23 years! So creating for The Paper Players challenge is a no brainer. I love making cards and sharing my passion for all things paper!

For this weeks card I started with a 5×7 base (side fold) using Close To My Heart  Whisper card stock. Next I layered Sunset and White Daisy card stock to build my focal point on. The sketch has a circle so I knew I wanted to use a darling stamp set called Happy to Be Friends. I layered the flaxen colored background and texture (patterned) paper from the Hopscotch paper pack and created a wide banner from the opposite side of the same patterned paper. I cut the scallop and plain circle from the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy circuit cartridge.

I stamped the design using Flaxen, Sunset, Sorbet and Whisper inks. A few sparkles, a piece of slate ribbon with a tiny charm hanging down completed this card.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ll leave a comment.


  1. Very nice! I can’t remember the last time I made a 5×7″ card. I’m pretty much stuck on the standard A2 sized cards.

    Playing with paper is great therapy. I think that’s why I called my area my Playroom.

  2. Very pretty, Denise! I love the delicate image and beautiful colors. The rhinestones are the perfect accents. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players!
