The Paper Players 377 - Design Team Card

There were lots of great cards in the colour challenge last week at The Paper Players. This week, as normal, we have a Clean and Simple Challenge for you and Joanne has chosen 'Love Notes'.

Recently, I had a friend come round and we had a 'play-date' with our respective new SU gear. We'd both got an order on the same day, so got together to play with it all. Interestingly, despite both of us having big orders, we had only one item - a Sale-a-bration set - in common.

So the stamps, Heart Happiness, and the heart framelits that cut them, do not belong to me ... yet.

The card base is from Tutti-Frutti Cards and Envelopes, a Sale-a-bration item: one item with each $110 in an order. What I particularly like about them is the co-ordinating envelopes that come already lined.

We'd love to have you join us at The Paper Players this week. Here's a reminder of the rules of the challenge.
  1. Create a NEW paper-craft project specifically for this challenge.
  2. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
  3. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
  4. Please link your card to no more than four challenges, total. Entries linked to more than 4 challenges, including ours, will be deleted without notification.
  5. Have fun!

  1. This is beautiful Jan - so delicate in your non-traditional colour scheme. I had an order delivered today that I haven't yet opened that should have a stash of Tutti Frutti card bases in - my first ones! I've seen so many lovely cards made with them and yours today is no exception - it looks like a stamped background. A beautiful CAS card with the perfect sentiment for a love note and my challenge this week!

  2. So pretty! I LOVE the colors you went with for a fresh and fun!

  3. I can see those cards jumping into my shopping cart on my next order, they're wonderful! And I love that you used non-traditional colors for your favorite colors, BTW!

  4. Jan, I adore your non-tradiotnal Valentine colors! Those background are perfect to showcase those beautiful hearts! CAS perfection! I hope you are having a lovely week in all that warm weather! Wish I was visiting YOU! XX

  5. Wonderful, soft, non-traditional colors - such a sweet card! Hope you're having a great week! Hugs, Annie

  6. Such a sweet card to say, "Love You". Like the unexpected colors too.
