Merry Christmas for The Paper Players #72

I've been pretty busy lately and I haven't posted for a week, but I miss participating in my challenges and making cards! Today I made this card for The Paper Players, and the colors we have to play with are Always Artichoke, Riding Hood Red and River Rock. I was inspired by a card that was published in Cards magazine.

Have a great day! Enjoy!

Give Thanks (The Paper Players #70)

I can't believe Halloween is over. I was planning to create a card for Halloween when I realized that Halloween was Monday, boohoo! I am looking forward to Thanksgiving now.

The theme for The Paper Players this week is about fall and anything goes. Since I love fall and leaves (in any size, any color, any kind!), I decided to make a card with leaves. I took the technique I used on this card from our Success magazine. I basically clear embossed some leaves, then gave color to the cardstock with the daubers and after that I stamped leaves randomly on top. The effect is so nice that I used that technique several times in different cards. Below you are going to find the card that I sumbmitted to the challenge and the other one that I created using the same technique and very similar to the one that is in our magazine.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy!
