Paper Players - PP235 and PART OF ME

I saw the color challenge from the Paper Players this week and decided to play along.

I was having so much fun with my new Easter Eggs stamp set and die from A Muse that I used these colors to make two cards.  

On this one I also used a new embossing folder that was gifted to me by my blogging friend Sabrina and the greenery is a Memory Box die. 

On this next one I used the egg stamp in Crumb Cake on the panel first and then added half a kraft and half a white doily to it.  I found some So Saffron ribbon in a drawer and tied that around the panel.  The egg was watercolored and popped up.  

Then I added some little punch pack flowers in Crisp Canteloupe and So Saffron. I daubered the edges in inks of the same color first and then gave them a squish on a mouse pad to cup them up into more of a 3-D shape.  The centers are sticky pearls that were colored with a Wild Wasabi Blendability (which, if you haven't heard have been discontinued).

I love when I can use a stamp more than one way -  like this one for a background.  

Today's photo prompt is PART OF ME and this is PART OF ME inside and outside of a puddle.

It got up to 60ยบ today and there was a lot of snow-melt.  This puddle is one of many at the end of our driveway.  The sheet of ice that it once was has melted enough for me to be able to get the mail from the mailbox without worrying about slipping.  That's what happens when your mailbox is at the foot of a hill and mostly in the shade even during the winter.  


  1. These are such fabulous cards! The eggs are amazing and look so good against the Crumb Cake background. Thanks so much for joining us at The Paper Players.

  2. Gorgeous! Those eggs are fabulous!

  3. Two beautiful cards Lorraine - that Easter egg stamp is so versatile! I love the first card - it looks like the eggs are nestled in the garden, just waiting to be found on an egg hunt! Thanks for joining us for our colour challenge over at The Paper Players this week!
