I have been wanting to participate in The Paper Players Challenges for several weeks now. Life just seems to get in the way. Today I had some time to prepare a Clean and Simple card using Polka Dots for The Paper Players Challenge PP541.
I just love the Quiet Meadow stamp set in the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog with the delicate flowers. My Grandmother used to have a fabulous flower garden in Kentucky. There were so many beautiful flowers but one of my favorite was the Sweet Williams. The flowers on this card look like the Sweet Williams, so that is how I colored them.
Here is a close up to show you the coloring more easily. I used the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in Magenta Madness and Granny Apple Green. These come in a light and dark shade so you can make the image more 3D. I still need a little practice on the shading.
Here is the photo I referred to for my coloring. I have tried to grow Sweet Williams here in Arizona but the deer think they are dessert!
I really enjoyed making this card. I did use the Masking Technique to stamp the Polka Dot pattern around the Sweet Williams.
I have listed the supplies I used to make this card below. I am an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. If you do not already have a Demonstrator, I would love to be your Demonstrator.

The Stampin’ Up® Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set lends itself to a lot of creative cards. There are 23 different stamps in this set! I have only used 5 of the stamps in the set for this card.
The card base is Pool Party Card Stock (CS). The remaining CS is Basic White. The ink colors are: Pool Party, Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede. The seashell has been Stamped Off once. I embellished the card with Opal Rounds. The sentiment is made with the Classic Label Punch.
Viola! That is all it takes!

I am starting to participate in a new challenge with The Paper Players which you can visit by clicking HERE to see all of the entries. The challenge for this week is “Clean and Simple”. This means there are minimal layers, little to no embellishments and lots of white space.
This cute little kitty is in the Stampin’ Up!® Pampered Pets stamp set. I used the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in Flirty Flamingo, Smoky Slate and Basic Black to color the image. The sentiment is from the Zoo Globe stamp set.
Measurements: Basic White Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Flirty Flamingo CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Basic Gray CS: 1 x 5 inches; and Basic White CS: 3 5/8 x 5 inches.
I believe it is very important to let your children know that you are proud of them from time to time. Fortunately I have four beautiful children who I am very proud of. This card will be mailed to my lovely daughter, who is not only working full time and but is also taking four courses at the local community college. I am very proud of all of her accomplishments.
