There were so many beautiful cards in last week's gallery at The Paper Players that came from Nance's versatile and pretty sketch. Big congratulations to the Headliner and Cuts Above! I think you'll be excited by this week's theme challenge from Sandy too.
Because I got Oh So Eclectic at the same time as my Christmas pre-orders, I feel I've neglected it, so it was today's choice of set to use. I did sneak in a couple of bits and bobs from Beautiful Bouquet and Bouquet Bunch framelits too.
The distressed leaf stamp is one of my favourites. On two them, I rolled the edges of the stamp through Cajun Craze after inking with Old Olive first to get the two-toned leaves. I used some of the Year of Cheer washi tape from the Holiday Catalogue because of the lovely copper tones and then added in a touch of copper metallic thread and gave the main flower a copper foil centre too.
We would love to have you join us at The Paper Players this week, for our Autumn Floral theme challenge.
Here's a reminder of the few rules we have:
- Create a NEW paper-craft project specifically for this challenge.

If you live anywhere in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up demonstrator, I'd love to help you with ideas and Stampin' Up products. Please message me through my Facebook page, linked in the sidebar of this blog or leave a comment below.
