The Paper Players

I'm playing along with the sweet gals at The Paper Players challenge where Jaydee has a "something new" theme challenge using this photo collage board to spark our imagination! I literally went with the "spark" photo (lower right) and lit up this birthday cake for my stash. I also was inspired by the blue/green/yellow backgrounds of three other photos and pulled these colors into the design by ink blending with distress inks.

My newest stamp set is this Cake Creations stamp set by Ink to Paper. I was recently a guest designer for them and they generously gifted this set along with the coordinating dies. It's a very versatile set and since I can in no way decorate a real life cake, I can sure have fun doing it with paper!  The cake layers are in black and white with dark blue candles, yellow flames and florals in distress inks: Shaded Lilac, Blueprint Sketch, Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn. The sentiment is from The Greetery's Sentiment Suite: Birthday stamp set. The large die overlay is Papertrey Ink's Quatrefoil Cover Plate.

That's it for now. We have some snow in the forecast here in VA so I'm hoping it will hold off until my morning appointment is over. I'm just not into the white stuff anymore though my grandchildren would LOVE to see it cover the ground!
