Hi Girlfriends,The Always Playing with Paper
blog is making some changes. The blog will now be a Challenge blog. I got the news from LeAnne at Wee Inklings
. She is a new Fabulous Paper Player. And , the design team is looking for a June guest designer. I would enjoy the challenge of being a guest designer. Firstly, because I think it would be fun, yes that's right, just good old fun. Isn't that what we are really trying to do: have fun? Secondly, I would enjoy the challenge to make myself a better card maker. Thirdly, being the guest designer would push me to get out all my fabulous Stampin' Up products more often! I have so many great stamps from SU. That being said, on with the projects. I made two cards with Stampin' Up products to show you today. The first is made with one of my fav sets. It is called Friends 24-7.
To make the background, stamp off once and then stamp the scroll stamp on white CS. Using a sponge or a cotton ball add a little Bordering Blue ink to the white CS. Stamp the bird with Chocolate Chip in the center. Layer with CS. Stamp and punch the sentiment and add some sheer ribbon.

The second card for today is all Stampin Up stamps but, I also used a little DP from K & Company and ATD. I used the direct to paper method to add the color to the background. Then I stamped the image in Basic Black. Layered with CS and DP. I stamped some of the bamboo on the lower right hand corner too. The sentiment is from Asian Artistry. It was stamped in Basic black on Green DP and attached with dimensional tape. Two brads were added on the bottom edge.

Well, that's about it for today. I have to get busy. I have to run errands today. I need some seeds for the garden, 2 bags of sand, 2 bags of white rock. And, a package of pearl accents. I have a lot of stops to make. Better get going. Have a super day today everyone. You are loved!
