Playing with Paper Spice Cake

Happy Friday, my friends!!

I am continuing to work on my goal to complete the 2016 challenges at The Paper Players.  I made a card for this week's sketch, as well as a sketch I missed a while back.

I used SU's retired DSP, "Spice Cake," which is one of my favorites.  This week's sketch is clean and very versatile.  My card base is pool party, and I added a layer that is dry embossed with the "Vintage Wallpaper" folder.  The leafy stamps are from "Pocket Silhouettes" stamped on a scallop circle. The sentiment is from "Happiest Birthday Wishes."  I used more mustard, soft suede, pear pizzazz and pool party inks.  I added early espresso satin ribbon and suede brads as the final touches.

Next, a card that I made quickly earlier this week and mailed immediately!  I needed a birthday card for one of my many sisters-in-law.  This sketch helped me create something in a hurry.  The photo was taken in the late afternoon sunlight before I had to stick this in the mail...which I caught with just minutes to spare!  The card base is soft suede, and again, I used "Spice Cake" dsp.  The sentiment is from "Suite Sayings," stamped in more mustard.  Espresso brads and thick bakers twine finish it off.

My final card was made from various supplies on my desk after I finished the other 2.  No challenges involved, except to use my stash!  The sentiment is from Stampabilities, stamped on an oval made with my Sizzix die.  The "Vintage Wallpaper" embossing folder was used again, as well as seam binding.  I think I will make a few more cards this afternoon, before watching the Chicago Cubs play in the World Series tonight!

Thanks for stopping by!
