Paper Players Color Challenge 63

Oh color challenges!  

Always tough for me!  You know when you have a vision...but just cannot quite execute it??  Well, here is my card...I bit boring but I just could not find that WOW factor....

Here are the highlights!

  • I used the "kiss" method for the image stamping first in Rich Razzleberry then stamping off.  Then, after inking up the Netting background stamp in Basic Grey, I "kiss"ed the two stamps together.  I did the same for the stem using Old Olive first, then stamped off before kissing with the Basic Grey inked Netting background.
  • I followed this week's Stamping411 sketch, but am too late to enter it over there. I like the addition of my olive sprinkles in the corner to offset the knot in the ribbon.
  • Knot...bow....knot is what I ended up with!
  • The DSP is from the Pocketful of Posies DSP pack.
So that is it!  Now that I look at it, pretty simple...anyway, hope all is well wherever you are!

stamps:  Fabulous Florets, Netting
cardstock:  Basic Grey, Whisper White, Pocketful of Posies DSP
accessories:  Basic Grey satin ribbon, olive sprinkles, dimensionals
ink:  Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Basic Grey



  1. Lauri, I love the "kiss" technique! It looks fantastic here. Beautiful card.

  2. I would not call it boring at all! (But I know what you mean about having an idea not turn out like it is in your head!!). I think this is a perfectly lovely take on these challenging colors! Thanks for playing, sweetie!

  3. Lauri, this is beautiful! You're being too hard on yourself! The kissing technique is always a great wow factor and now I think that darn netting BG stamp has made it to the top of my list! Love it kissed on the stems. Also love seeing all that gorgeous DSP! I'm so glad you could join us for my color challenge! ((hugs))

  4. I think this is gorgeous! Love the kissing here Lauri!!!

  5. Wow, Lauri! The kissing adds so much! What a beautiful card! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  6. Oh Lauri...the wow factor here is that paper! One of my faves. Between that and these gorgeous flowers, you have a beautiful card. Sometimes less is more. Love it. Thanks for playing along with the Paper Players this week!

  7. Lauri I agree with everyone else, this card is beautiful, love your use of the "kissing" technique.

  8. Beautiful card! I love how you used the kiss technique to mirror the pattern in the DSP. Great job! Thank you for playing with The Paper Players!


Thank you SO much for taking a few minutes to leave me a note!
