Arched Sentiments for Paper Players #616

Happy Sunday.

It's the fabuloous Claire's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's theme week.  It was the perfect excuse to ink up the Arched Sentiments set from the Greetery along with the Fond of Foliage background stamp.  Here's a sneak peek and it also gives you a hint as to our challenge this week!

Here's Claire's challenge:

I made this card for an ex-neighbor who was incredibly kind and we have much to thank her for.  As we are coming up to Thanksgiving, I thought it would be a great time to thank her again for all that she did for us.  I kept the colors very much to the autumnal palette.  I tried the die-cut focal image on a plain piece of cardstock, but decided it just needed a little something-something.  So, I inked up the Fond of Foliage background stamp with some versamark and added it to the base.  It was just the finishing touch the card seemed to need.
Here's my card:
Such a pretty stamp and even though I rarely use these colors, I think they turned out OK.  I used some Delicata ink for the Thank You sentiment.  I love that it gives so much wonderful shimmer and shine without the need to use embossing powder!
I hope you will join us and play along.  As always, the design team have some fabulous inspiration for you:
I'm hoping to get a little time in my craft room today.  I need to finish up the cards for kids in foster homes.  I hope you all have a beautiful day and warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
Card recipe:
  • Stamps:  Arched Sentiments.  Fond of Foliage (background) - both from The Greetery

So pretty and perfect to celebrate the fall season. The added sparkle on the sentiment is fabulous, too. Look at you enabling me to do a little shopping once again. Haha! Truly a lovely card, all around, my friend.


Jaydee the rich autumn colours suit your stamp perfectly and I just love the curved sentiment and the way the florals and leaves frame the arch; another of my stamping friends has this set and I must confess I'm quite taken with it given the wonderful things you're both making! Love the Delicata inked sentiment too. Just beautiful!

Jaydee, I don't even know where to start! This card is so beautiful! I love the arched sentiment and the gorgeous florals. The colors shout Fall and the sentiment is so special! YOU certainly rocked my challenge this week. Have a fabulous weekend! Off to shop at The Greetery!

Jaydee, this is really pretty! Love that sparkle!

I will have to dig out my Delicata ink! Love that shimmer and your card is so pretty. The colors and background are a perfect match for fall.

Christy Stanford

Gorgeous card, Jaydee! The autumn colors are perfect and I love the ornate floral frame around the sentiment panel.

LeAnne Pugliese

This is gorgeous! The arch is stunning on its own, but that Delicata ink really kicks it up!

Ann Schach

A lovely card, Jaydee! I love the arched sentiment. I totally agree about the Delicata inks. They impart the shimmer and shine without the time involved in embossing. The stamped background is beautiful and provides the perfect backdrop for the die cut flowers. The colors are great together. Have a wonderful week!
