Good Morning, Sunday! It’s time for another Paper Players Challenge! This week, our fabulous Joanne has a Theme Challenge for us. Joanne is asking us to come up with anything that reminds us of boys. Snails, puppies, superheroes… and the list goes on. We would love to see what you come up with so link up with us and join the fun.
This past week was busy and I didn’t take a look at our Challenge until Friday. When I saw the theme was “boys” what first came to mind was a superhero, a rock star or sports star. My son has grown into a wonderful man, but he still loves sports.
I went into my stamp archives and realized I didn’t have much of anything to create a project for boys. Lots of flowers and frills, but not much for boys. I will remedy that without a doubt, but the word “star” kept coming to me. Ok, “star” it is!! In my eyes, my son is a star, (along with my daughter, of course)! I hope you enjoy my “star” card for boys.
The striped pattern paper was my color inspiration. The piece of colorful striped DSP is from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper, which is in the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. The release is only 2 days away!! My thought was to use primary colors and lots of stars. The sentiment, which I found while digging through my stamp collection, is from an oldie called “Pictogram Punches”. It goes back to 2016 and I thought it would be a perfect fit for this card design. All of the stars except for the embellishments are die cut with my first “star” dies called “Stars Framelits Dies”. I really went back into my archives for this project.
Once again, it was fun to mix the old with the new.
So, go through your stamps, ink and paper and come up with something fun to link up with us over at the Paper Players. We always enjoy your creations!
…the only limitation is your imagination!

Great colors! The stars pop so nicely!
Debbie you are rocking these new papers – I can’t wait to get my hands on some! – and I love how they inspired your colourful stars this week! I agree it can be fun to mix old with new and this card is a perfect boy card with bright colours and bold images. All boys are stars in their Mums eyes for sure! Way to go with my sketch this week!
A perfect boy card, Debbie! You are so creative. I now regret purging all of my old sets. I used Pictogram Punches a lot back in the day, and it was perfect for this challenge! A fabulous card for “boys” of any age! Have a wonderful week!
So creative and FUN!! Love the colors and design.
It seems that a few of us were in the same boat with not a lot of ‘boy’ choices in our stamp collections! Stars are always a great choice and I love the bright colors and layering! Have a great week!
Stripes and stars…I can’t think of a better combination! This is such a fun card with a lot of punch! Have a great rest of your week Debbie!
I love this Debbie! Star and stripes are a winner with me! Love the different colors and that silver star just pops! So fun! Have a Happy Mother’s Day!
Debbie, I love the stripes and the bold colors. The negative and positive stars make such a bold statement and they are really allowed to shine with all that white space.
