Paper Palooza for The Paper Players #602

 Hello stamping friends! It's time for this week's challenge #602 at The Paper Players! As I'm writing this post I feel almost giddy from my patterned paper playtime! 

I didn't hesitate to order this fun paper pack from Stampin' up! Although it has a darling coordinating tea pot stamp I have several tea themed images in my stash already, so I didn't *think* I would need it. 

As it turned out, I colored up this much older stamp and went to see if the paper I chose and the image  would work well together. Well, they did, but I can only say... it was WORK, lol! Sometimes a card comes together easily and sometimes it's like pulling teeth! Am I the only one?

I did very simple Copic coloring, and paper pieced the girl's dress and apron. Playing with the middle row across, I chose die cut, patterned paper and blue. 

The apron strings and ruffled edges were brightened up with a white gel pen. I do really love the blue teapots in this patterned paper. 

Thanks for a great challenge! I hope you will join us!

Be yourself

Your card is really darling, Cindy, and I super love the paper! Perfectly coordinated, including those little flower dies. You are not alone in the struggle to make a card sometimes. It can look so simple in the end, but getting there... sheesh! This turned out adorably pretty and sweet!

Wow, Cindy! This adorable image and the designer paper was a match made in Heaven! They work perfectly together. Yep...sometimes it is a struggle to get a card done. It seems like the less time I have to get it done, the bigger the struggle. lol

LOL, I know what you mean about the creative process of making a card...sometimes it flows easily and sometimes it's like pulling teeth! I think your little gal is very sweet and I love seeing these older stamps getting some love!

Aww, cute! I like how you paper-pieced her dress and apron, and great job adding some shading to the teapot to mimic the ones on the patterned paper.
