Nature’s Perfection for The Paper Players

IMG_1812It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players! This week I am hosting a Clean and Simple Floral Challenge:  Feature flowers on your Clean and Simple card.   How easy is that! And speaking of easy…it doesn’t get any easier than my card today.  I let the FREE Sale-a-Bration product, Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Paper do all the work! I hope you will play along with us this week.  Remember, if it is clean and simple to you, it is clean and simple to us!

pp236The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This folded card measures 4-1/4″ wide by 5-1/2″ long.

  • Sequins! Bermuda Bay Sequins add a touch of sparkle to the gorgeous Floral Vellum! I used Glue Dots to attach these, and added a mini-Pearl to the middle of each.


  • Bermuda Bay Butterfly! The Butterfly image from the FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Nature’s Perfection, was inked with Bermuda Bay ink, and stamped onto Whisper White cardstock.  The Elegant Butterfly Punch was used to punch it out.  How easy is that?


  • Triple bow! A triple bow was created using Coastal Cabana ribbon from the FREE Sale-a-Bration item, Best Year Ever Accessory Pack.  It was adhered into position over Whisper White Organza ribbon, trimmed with a snippet of Bermuda Bay sequins.


Usually I spend hours designing the cards I create, so I almost feel a little guilty that I created such a pretty card in a matter of minutes.  Because of the “For You” sentiment, which was from the Mother’s Love set, I think I could use this card for a variety of occasions, from birthdays to graduations to anniversarys to weddings.  What do you think? Won’t you let me know in today’s comment? Your comments are important to me, and I do read each and every one. Of course, if you ever have a question about the cards I create, or the techniques I use, I am only an email away. Until next time…

  16. Ann, even when you go CAS, your creations are beautiful. The contrast of the black in the vellum DSP and the Bermuda Bay accents is really striking, love the bling of the sequences with the little pearls in the center, I just love it when you add pearls, you always know where to place them to enhance your design.
    This challenge sounds like fun, I’m going to give it a try.
    Thank you for sharing.
    PS. How is Muffy doing?
