Sunny Fun for The Paper Players

16 Comments

Hi bloggies!

I had a few minutes yesterday to do a little stamping. After having a FAB day shopping on Tuesday … I do have some cards to make to go with the presents. I needed a couple of male cards … and how cool … the Paper Players had a challenge to match!!! Yay! Here is my entry for the challenge ….

So … I was thinking … there is kinda a trend with male cards to do nautical or trees … and use browns & blues & reds for colours. Male cards tend to be ‘nice’ but a little ‘dull’. I decided to think outside the square … and do something funky and bright. The trick was keeping it ‘male’ looking! I hope I have achieved this look??? This card is for a Dad with kids … so I think it is appropriate!? What do you think? I do hope this is “Clean & Simple” enough. And yet … some of the other entries make me think that perhaps I have under-done it??? How do you get the right balance??? 😉

Well … a few more cards I NEED to make. But … I am not complaining. It means I will have something to share with you all! See you soon. Hugs xxx

  6. Perfect, Andrea. I think you nailed it — masculine for a dad with kids, C&S, and you are doing a fab job with Prismas. I think this is a really fun card and I like it a lot. Can’t wait each day to see what you do next. Hugs.
    Andrea adds: Hi Sandy! I am happy that everyone seems to like this one! It is a little different from a normal male card! Hugs xxx

  11. Wow, love this! Did you colour this with your new pencils? I was thinking of doing a card with the same stamp set on crumb cake – great minds! Oh, and congrats on winning Nicole’s challenge last week – your card totally deserved it. In fact I want to use your design for one of my SAS this year!
    Andrea adds: Hi Nicki! You are such a good sport! Your card was very deserving too … so I think we should share it! I am always flattered when someone wants to CASE one of my cards … so feel free to use this design! Hugs xxx

    Andrea adds: Yes … I found that it was better not to blend with the gamsol for the crumb cake. So … I just blended a little with the colourless pencil! Hugs xxx

    Andrea adds: It has been a nice adventure … having some new ‘toys’ to play with … and growing a new skill. I am still to master them … and need to practice some more intense colouring … but I am having fun! Hugs xxx
