The Paper Players 372:




Good Sunday morning to you!    


This week at The Paper Players, Joanne's SKETCH challenge is a beauty:




So I decided to make a Christmas card that is more my taste - lots of colour!  These colours remind me of my Christmas tree so I was immediately drawn to making a bright fun card!




This year I am adding gold to my Christmas tree so I added here as well with the deer.  Now yes, technically antlered deer are male, but I added a little dash of festive to him =)





Stamps:  Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Holiday Greetings
Die cuts:  Simon Says Stamp Magical Christmas, Reverse Confetti Fa La La Circle, My Favorite Things Vertical Stitched Strips
Extras:  Reverse Confetti Midnight Ink


  Cheers all!  Come play along, we would love to see what YOU create!

FA LA:




Good morning!  I think I need a week off from taking holidays.  It's funny how long it can take to get back into the swing of things!

Today I felt I must get some Christmas cards done as I am hoping to set up the Christmas decor and tree this weekend which takes HOURS.  Really days =)

My card is pretty simple, although with my sluggish brain it took quite a while to get everything just 'so'.  I used my favourite die cut from Reverse Confetti =)




My card features classic Christmas colours (and no black!).






  



I have created this card for the following challenges:

Happy Monday!

This week at Merry Monday, Sue would like us to use SANTA on our Christmas card:





I forgot I had these little Santas, I couldn't decide which one to ink up so I decided to add seven fun jolly men.




I used the eclipsing technique for the sentiment.  Am I the only one who is a little scared of doing all that colouring then hoping for the best when you run it through the die cut machine???  I always hold my breath a little =)





Stamps:  My Favorite Things Jingle All The Way
Die cuts:  My Favorite Things Celebrate

Good Sunday morning to you!  We have returned from holidays and it was fabulous but now to focus on my most favourite thing - Christmas!  


This week at The Paper Players, Sandy's CAS challenge is WARM and COZY





It is hard to believe Christmas is only what, five weeks away??!!??!!  With all this cold weather, I knew just what makes me warm and cozy, my mitts, toques (hats) and scarves!

Merry Monday #265:






Happy Monday all!!  Only SIX more weeks until Christmas!  We are on our way to viva Las Vegas for the week so maybe I can find some fun Christmas gifts there!

This week at Merry Monday, Nina would like us to use an outdoor winter activity on our Christmas card:




Now don't try this at home kids!  The first penguin is using the toboggan like a snowboard - might not be the safest way to get down the hill, he is such a dare devil!  I decided the little deer should be a bit safer =)





Stamps:  Lawn Fawn Toboggan Together, My Favorite Things Handwritten Holiday
Die cuts:  My Favorite Things Stitched Snow Drifts, Reverse Confetti Scalloped Squares
Extras:  Stampin' Up! inks, Tim Holtz Waterbrush, Reverse Confetti Midnight ink, Zig Clean Color Real Brushes

Good Sunday morning to you!  Well winter is certainly here, we have gotten quite a bit of snow the past week.  The snow was softly falling yesterday - it was SO pretty to watch!

Speaking of all the white stuff, as much as I love it, we are off on holidays.  We are going to get some sun and warmth!


This week at The Paper Players, Nance's COLOUR challenge is WHITE ON WHITE:

NOV Reverse Confetti Blog Hop:



Welcome to Reverse Confetti's November New Release blog hop!  






Everything that has been showcased for the past 3 days are now available in store!






I created my card using a couple of cuties from Reverse Confetti Cool Friend.

I started by layering Cheerful & Kind pattern paper with Scallop Stripe Panel, Fa La La, Dots Tag Layer, and Tag Duo Confetti Cuts.





I watercoloured this cool pair and added a paper pieced hat to the one fellow.




Lastly I added a Christmas Cheer sentiment on my tag (from the Clear Treat Box/Box Wrap Combo - my favourite!).


























Blog Hop List:
And our 'Fetti Friend, Laurel Seabrook




Thanks for all the love this week - cheers all and a happy Wednesday to you!!!
