Let's Play Ball!


Hello Everyone!  Did you enjoy the Power Poppy release of Lavender yesterday??  Today we've got something completely different and totally FUN called Play Ball!  Marcy has some fabulous info and background on this set over on the Power Poppy Blog, so make sure you pop on by.  :)

Although baseball isn't a big sport here in Australia, I did play many, many years of softball so I think this set is lots of fun with so many possibilities!

I've used a base of Riding Hood Red and layered with Very Vanilla and some plain Fancy Pants Little Sport aqua DP.  Over this plain paper I've stamped the stitched image element in Memento Desert Sand.  Down one side I've added a strip of Little Sport DP (isn't that baseball paper perfect!).  Over this I've attached a red star.  I've stamped the bats, glove, ball and base image from Play Ball in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics (E11, E13, E17, E31, E33, E35, E37, E40, E42, E43, E95, E97, B12, B14, B16, B18, R12, R14, R17, R59, N1).  I've then fussy cut it and popped it up on X-press It Foam Tape.  I've stamped the top sentiment onto Very Vanilla and then cut it into a notched tag.  I've stamped the other part of the sentiment direct to the paper and coloured the 'star' part of the sentiment with R17.  To finish I've added a few brown buttons.

Stamps - Play Ball (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, Fancy Pants Little Sport DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders Stars Five, Buttons, Scissors, X-press It Foam Tape.

This is fantastic, Kathy! I am cracking up that I used the exact same paper on my card for the hop! But, of course! It's the perfect paper for this set! :) Your coloring is spot on, and the stitching on the background layer is perfection!
