The Paper Players : Challenge #300... a CAS CELEBRATION!

Hi there!

This week at the paper players we are celebrating a wonderful milestone!

                                             *** 300 challenges ***

                                               


To celebrate this occasion we have blog candy to give away, and lots of it! The team has assembled not one, not two, but 10 grab bags full of stamping goodness! To be eligible to win one, all you need to do is play along with our challenge this week. You can play as many times as you like, but each needs to be a new project (no back linking, please) and make sure you follow our usual challenge rules. Winners will be selected from all PP300 challenge participants using Random.org and will be posted on Saturday, June 25."



Jaydee has chosen the theme... A Clean and Simple CELEBRATION!


celebrate - penny black dahlia

A closer look:

celebrate - penny black dahlia


I stamped the larger and smaller Penny Black dahlias on the card base with Versafine onyx black ink and framed it with a die cut frame from memory Box dies.

I scribbled color with with Zig Markers on a piece of acetate and spritzed it with water. I just gave the frame a quick swoosh trough the paint, allowed it to dry and then adhered it to the card base.

I added the Silhouette cut sentiment ( #50178)  and a couple of sequins to complete the card.

Please join us this week for this special occasion!

Hugs
Hannelie

Oh that big bold sentiment is fabulous! And I love the sweet splashy frame! Your design is wonderful!

Heel mooie CASkaart! Het zwart wit met een vleugje kleur en de mooie tekst is rustig en elegant! Ik heb dit sentiment ook in mijn Silhouette bibliotheek, meerdere teksten bij elkaar. Het fijne is dat ze zelfs bij iets kleiner snijden nog mooi eruit komen.

Awesome sentiment...love that frame too. A great card for a celebration!

HJ said...

This is a beautiful card. I love the black dahlias with the colorful frame. Thanks for tips on how you colored it. I'll have to remember to get my acetate out and see what I can do. Usually I think of it for shakers but not smooching colors. That big "celebrate" is so perfect. What a great design for the challenge.

Elegant and so gorgeous, Hannelie ... love the unexpected colour in the frame against the uncoloured blooms ... just beautiful! Hugs, Anita :)

Hannelie, I love the colored frame against the monochromatic background. Fabulous CAS card. So glad you are a part of our PP team this year and hope that you are having a wonderful time in South Africa. I so remember those wonderful, crisp, nights - and am envious of your drive. Especially as you go through the Karoo and Maatjiesfontein.

O, daai swart 'celebrate' lyk so mooi teen die swart en wit blomme en die gekleurde raampie, vrou!!!!! Ek hou baie van jou slim idee om die blomme te gebruik - so effektief en treffend en pragtig feestelik!!!! Ek gaan probeer om ook weer saam te speel die week - mens weet nooit wanneer jy 'n gelukkige prys wen nie, ne!!!!
Groete
Ek is op die oomblik besig om beplanning te doen vir 'n stalletjie by een van ons kerke se kersmarkte hier!!! Hulle het verlede jaar vir die eerste keer 'n kersmark gehad en dit was 'n wonderlike uitstalling van kuns en kreatiwiteit - baie beter as wat ons hier gewoond is!!!! Ek hoop om 'n stalletjie vanjaar daar te kan he - keuring is die einde van Sept so ek begin al goed maak om my foto's in te stuur om hopelik gekeur te word!!!!! En nou le die breiwerk bietjie eenkant, maar so tussen-in probeer ek darem 'n rytjie of twee brei en natuurlik, as ek begin kaartjies maak wil ek net speel met my papier en stamps!!!! So baie lekker goed om te doen en so min tyd, ne!!!!!
Wanneer jy hierdie kommentaartjies kry hoop ek jy het lekker gerus in ons mooi land en dat die batterye weer goed gelaai is, vrou!!! Ons gesels weer!!! Goed gaan!!!!!

Wonderful card. Love the pop of colour with the frame - just perfect. TFS

Very pretty. I love the floating frame technique and it looks super around the flowers.

LeAnne said...

This is so cool....and I am sure you just swished that frame through the ink and if I did it, it would be a mess! Yours is just perfectly pretty!

Helen Gullett said...

WOW! How beautiful!
