The Paper Players #120!

Hi Everyone! I hope you managed to remind yourself to "fall back" with your clocks last night. Dave and I ended up forcing ourselves to stay up an hour later so that we wouldn't notice the change so much today! I don't mind this time change at all. It's the one in the spring that I totally hate!

I have a great way to welcome in the time change and the month of November. How about playing with the Paper Players Challenge today: Give Thanks:

And today's card:

This is a very quick and easy card made possible by Mr. "BigShot Machine". Just cut up a bunch of leaves using the "Autumn Accents Die" in "Very Vanilla Cardstock", glue them all to a "Very Vanilla Cardstock" base, add a few splotches with the stamp image from the "French Foliage Stamp Set", a sentiment from the "From My Heart Stamp Set" and finally, add a solo leaf cut from "Pumpkin Pie Cardstock" crinkled and sponged!

To add a little to the leaf I tied a small bow with "Linen Thread" and secured it with a "Mini Glue Dot". The splotches were inked in "River Rock Ink" and the sentiment in "Early Espresso Ink":

Have a super Sunday today and pray for the people suffering the ill effects of Sandy as snow is now in the forecast for them this not fair.

Stampin' Up! Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie
  • Inks: River Rock, Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie
  • Stamps: From My Heart, French Foliage
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Autumn Accents Die, Mini Glue Dots
  • Accessories:Linen Thread

  1. Oh Debbie...this is WONDERFUL! I love the simplicity of it....and the colors! Now to have that is on my list for my next order! Have to say that I soooo agree with you, Falling Forward is much more difficult to deal with! Hoping that you continue to avoid the affects of Sandy - and yes praying every day for those who have been and are still suffering the craziness of it all! TFS!

  2. Debbie, I love the white on white with just the pops of color. It's unexpected and gorgeous! Love it. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week

  3. Awesome, Debbie! I love the "pop" of color with the single leaf. The waterspots are a great contrast to the rest of the card. I really like this! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!
