Happy Sunday, peeps, and welcome to another week with The Paper Players. Today is a very special Paper Players day because TODAY is Leanne Pugliese’s birthday! It is an honor and privilege to know and work with LeAnne. She’s one of the nicest people in our crafty blog world, has a wicked sense of humor and more creativity in her pinky finger than I have in my whole body--love her! Happy Birthday, LeAnne! I hope your day is wonderful. LeAnne is also our hostess for this week’s sketch challenge:
I’ve never actually had the chance to meet LeAnne in person but if I did, I just know that we would sit talking and laughing over a delicious cuppa! So, my new Perfect Blend stamp set seemed just the thing to celebrate LeAnne and her wonderful sketch!
Oh boy, lots of new goodies on here some of which are fast-becoming go-to products for me including the Hexagon Punch and the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. The hexagons are punched from Baked Brown Sugar DSP found in the 2013-2015 In-Color Designer Series Paper Stack.
The background cardstock, also Baked Brown Sugar, was inked up with the
coffee stain splatter
stamp from Gorgeous Grunge and layered with Gumball Green cardstock that was
embossed with the new Alphabet Press embossing folder. The two color combo I had going needed a
little POP of something so I added a small oval of Crushed Curry cardstock just
the perfect size for the sentiment. I
added some Candy Dots (Soft Suede is a close match for Baked Brown Sugar) and a
little flower detail to the latte cup.
