On To Adventure Holidaymaker for PP481

by Joanne James8. March 2020 10:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous Laurie to host this week and she has a vibrant colour challenge for you to work with:


I spent much of this week undertaking last-minute preparations for my weekend craft retreat, so was short on time to create and lacking my creative mojo. Anyway, I had to keep it quick and this is what I came up with - take a look:


I stamped my lady from the 'On to Adventure' stamp set and coloured her with my Stampin' Blends, then mounted her on a layered circle and stamped my sentiment onto a Coastal Cabana scalloped rectangle. A sprinkling of champagne rhinestones finish my card.

Super simple this week!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my Product and 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Before you reach for your ink and papers, check out what our amazing team has created to inspire you this week:

Here's a quick recap of our challenge rules:
1.  Create a new paper project
2.  Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us and provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge submission.
3.  Please link your card to no more than four challenges, TOTAL.
4.  Have FUN!

Enjoy your day; I will be on day two of my weekend craft retreat. Yesterday we had a ball, so I'm sure today will be just as much fun! More about that later in the week. I'll be back in a couple of days with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Fabulous use of the colors, Joanne.  I love your little traveler!  Your use of the scalloped border for both the rectangle and circle is wonderful.  It ties the two elements together beautifully.  Hope you have a wonderful week

Sweet use of these colours! I like the repeated use of the scalloped edges. I confess to having owned this set for some time and have yet to ink it up! Good quick card, Joanne.
