All Framed Up! {PP118}

Happy Sunday everyone! Welcome to another week with The Paper Players. It's finally started to cool down here in North Florida and we are lovin' it.  Mind you, when I say cool I mean mid-70s, LOL!  Anywho...let's see what our hostess-with-the-mostest, Anne Marie has this week for our Clean-and-Simple challenge.
Our challenge was to incorporate frames into our projects keeping it clean-and-simple.  So I turned to the Four Frames stamp set and went to town with all of them!  
I was inspired by the colors in this fabulous card from Rochelle Gould.   Isn't it incredible?!  I used Basic Gray, Cajun Craze, More Mustard and Baja Breeze and stamped them in all of the images from Four Frames.  I matted the whole piece with More Mustard, trimmed it out in some More Mustard designer paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper Pattern Stack, wrapped it with Baja Breeze Seam Binding ribbon and a Designer Ribbon Slide.  Do you have these ribbon slides from the Holiday Catalog yet?  You should!  They're great!

This is just one of my "stash" cards so I left the inside without a sentiment but repeated some more frames...and that's it!  Pretty clean and oh-so-simple!  So simple it's a little embarrassing even!  The rest of the design team has some awesome projects for you so be sure to check them out.  Hope you'll join the fun but don't delay!  The Paper Players challenge ends Friday, October 26th at Noon (PDT)!

Ok, you are BRILLIANT! Love your take on the frames theme! Seriously fun! Your background looks like store bought designer paper!!!

I'm envious of your cooler
It snowed yesterday and it's in the 20's right now...brrrr. It won't stay, I know, but it's here now and I'm such a whiner.

Nance What a great CAS card and I love your colors. I like how you used this set to make your design. So clever. I can see how you got the inspiration from Rochelle's card. Gorgeous. Love the little ribbon slide too. I have several types and keep forgetting about them. I think I loose track in my mountain of supplies {smile} .. No really.

Amy White said...

That is auch a pretty (and clever!) background Nance - what a great way to showcase that stamp set! Love the idea of using the ribbon slide with a pearl in the centre... must try that!

Margaret said...

Such a great idea! Who would have known how fabulous that would look, other than you obviously!!

Romaine said...

Nance, brilliant and fun! Love it!

Rochelle said...

Nance, I love your card too! What a fun idea to stamp the frames in a pattern on the front of the card! Thanks for the link back! :)

Anne Marie Hile said...

Ok, how incredibly creative are you, Nance?! I love this! An absolute CAS-tastic take on the framed element. Look a you dressing up the ribbon slide with the little pearl, too. Such a pretty detail. As always, your card is gorgeous from the inside out, my friend! Hugs! :)
