One for the Boys – The Paper Players 248

It’s Sunday and that means another fun challenge from The Paper Players! My stint as a guest designer is winding down, only three more after this (sniff), so I’m going to make them count!! This week’s challenge is a fun one, as well as very timely with Father’s Day just around the corner:

06:07pp248I found the BEST pack of 6×6 paper while at the Scrapbook Expo and have been itching to use it…it’s perfect for this challenge!! I may have gone overboard on all the patterns, but I couldn’t pick just one or two…

One for the Boys-The Paper Players 248Aren’t they AWESOME!!!??? And I found a stamp set I purchased YEARS ago that had never seen ink (unfortunately), called Watch Set #3 by Rubbernecker Stamps that coordinates perfectly with the background paper!! I stamped and fussy cut one of the watches out and then added Crystal Effects to mimic the glass in the watch face.

SKP Watermarked Photos4-041I die cut my sentiment out of black card stock three times and adhered the layers together to give it depth, but it still needed more to pop from all of that busy paper so I added Crystal Effects to it too.

Isn’t it a fun die cut? I love all the coordinating sayings to pair with it. It’s Wet Paint by Papertrey Ink. I purchased it a long time ago, but didn’t realize that it had dies, and then the die set was sold out for forever, but I finally got it!! Yay!

I’m not much on patience so after applying all the Crystal Effects I forced myself to LEAVE the house and run an errand, just to make certain I left it alone long enough to set up! lol

SKP Watermarked Photos4-042I need to give thanks to the design team over at the Fusion Card Challenge for the awesome sketch inspiration:

And a quick shot of the inside of the card:

    Shannon – I love all the combination of patterns on this card and also how the crystal effects makes the sentiment POP! I can so relate to being impatient waiting for it to dry!!! 🙂

  2. Debbie says:

    I think the different patterned paper is what makes this card spectacular. Very cool and masculine! I don’t have good luck with Crystal Effects but you make me want to try it again. Great card, Pal!

    Wow, this paper is fabulous and the watch works perfectly with it! Great job with the Crystal Effects too – I usually end up with a fingerprint in mine as I can’t help but touch it 🙂

  4. Sandy M says:

    Awesome masculine creation, Shannon! Love those papers, but I love that super glossy sentiment even more!

  5. Joanne James says:

    I love the paper combination Shannon – they all work so well together, as does the ‘forgotten’ uninked stamp – it was made for this card! I love the glossy die cut sentiment too – the perfect masculine card for my challenge this week!
