The Paper Players 390 - Design Team Card

There were so many fantastic entries for the magical creatures challenge that I began to wish I had actually bought the Magical Day suite rather than borrowing it. I began to yearn for a unicorn stamp, even! Today's challenge, a sketch from Jaydee, gave me a chance to break out some of the new supplies that I got from the On Stage Product purchase. It's the first time I've used this suite, Nature's Poem, but I'm certain it will not be the last. It will be available to you at the start of June.

Doesn't this fantastic sketch just make you want to dive in and try things out? It did for me. Here's where it ended up...

Those skeleton leaf stamps are just the most wonderful stamps - and they come in two sizes. So, so beautiful and so satisfying to stamp out.

Pop over and see what the rest of the team have done with Jaydee's fabulous sketch at The Paper Players

  1. Love how you put your card together, Jan. I agree...I couldn't part with my Mint Macaron either! Nor my Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow. I am thrilled they have returned. Hoping to get the product to CASE your card if it's available for my pre-order.

  2. Jan I had to stop at your blog first thing this morning to see what products you used for your gorgeous card. I LOVE those delicate leaves, and equally love the little leaf trinkets. They almost look like jewelry, and I guess they are, jewelry for your card!

  3. Jan this card is just gorgeous - one of the nicest I've seen made with this set! I love your arrangement of woodland leaves with the tree trunk giving the round shape and the addition of the twine bow and metallic leaves finish your card beautifully. Fabulous and one to CASE for sure!

  4. Beautiful stamping...those leaves are gorgeous.Love the leaf charm too!

  5. This is a gorgeous design, Jan! It makes me itch to get out that suite and play with it!

  6. Hi Jan,

    Really liking your card, its unique - in it’s colors and just the way you have payed your elements up to create something so pleasing to the eye. Kudos!

  7. Jan, this is so tranquil and serene! I absolutely love the shades of green together. I am a lover of leaves, so everything about this makes me smile! The metallic leaves are such a pretty finish to this beautiful card. I sure hope you are having a lovely week! XX

  8. Your card is beautiful! I love the color palette you used and those leaves are so delicate. I'm starting my SU wish list for June now! Hope you're having a great week ~ Hugs, Annie

  9. Jan... your card is so serene... love it. Those leaf trinkets are so fun (this post and a new post)... have to watch for those!

  10. This is very pretty, and I can see this set being used in many seasons and in many colors! LOVE the greens!

  11. This is such a beautiful way to use the sketch, I love the little leaf charm, it tones so well with your sentiment. Cx

  12. Jan, I am in love with this card. I love the layered leaves, the wonderful DSP used for the horizontal sentiment layer - and the little bow is the perfect finishing touch. Gorgeous
