Paper Players 411 - Design Team Card

Welcome to sketch week at The Paper Players. Jaydee has given us pretty sketch with a diagonal element to get our ideas flowing.

I decided it was time to use some of the DSP I accumulate. Are you one of those people, like me, who buys pretty paper and then wonders what you're going to do with it? Or if it's really, really pretty it seems a shame to cut it?

I used Petal Palette during last week's classes and I was reminded again how very pretty it is, so it became the basis of this week's card along with the DSP.

To give some extra zing to the floral cluster, I stamped it a second time, fussy cut the largest rose and popped it in with dimensionals.

I'm also still very impressed by the ease by which rhinestones can be transformed into any coloured embellishment with a Stampin' Blend - in this case, Cherry Cobbler.

We'd love to see what you do with Jaydee's pretty sketch.

  8. Just gorgeous Jan! I love the mix of patterns and the layered washi tape is such a fun detail. I need to remember to use washi tape more often myself. I actually have this stamp set on my desk right now working on some swaps. You have inspired me to ink it up just a little more. :)
