the paper players - bright & cheery color combo (pp86)

It's Sunday...time for a new Paper Players sketch and this week you get to play with colors. The fabulous Lesley has put together some of my most favorite colors right now! Look at this color combo - I love it!

When I originally saw this combo, I instantly thought Easter! So, I grabbed my "Everybunny" stamp set and went to work. Using the blender pen and markers, I made the colors softer on the bunny. Adding the rhinestones on the flowers and popping them up with a Dimensional, helped give the card a little bit of extra dimension. Rounding the two corners on the right softened up the edges a bit to complete the card. I had simple in mind to let the colors do the talking!

Stamp Set: Everybunny, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Crumb Cake, Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party DSP (polka dots)
Ink: Black Stazon, markers - Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories: Rhinestone Accents, Dimensionals

Tools: Scallop Trim Edge punch, Triple Layer Blossom punch, 3/16" Corner Rounder punch

Grab a little Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, and Crumb Cake (or any colors that are similar in shade if you don't have Stampin' Up! card stock) and play along! Head on over to the Paper Players and join in the fun...and get inspired by the rest of the design team to help you get started!

Darling card Heidi! That sweet little bunny girls is adorable. I wasn't going to get this set but you and Lesley are such enablers, lol! I really like your layout, especially how the scalloped piece extends beyond the focal element and those happy flowers are the perfect touch!

I have been resisting this set but now that you and Lesley both inked it up for this challenge I think I will be placing another order! Love your soft colouring and how all of the colours in the challenge are so perfectly represented on this card.

Heidi...your card just makes me happy! Love how you used the colors with that sweet little bunny image. (Just got that stamp set!) The flower accents are such a great touch but then you gave them that pop of sparkle and they really pack a fabby punch. Absolutely beautiful card to celebrate Easter! Hope you enjoyed your weekend! Big hugs! :)
