Paper Players 439

It's sketch week at The Paper Players. I like this sketch and got out of my comfort zone to play with it.

I like a lot of clean, empty space and seldom use DSP yet here I have two pieces in the same card! The Magnolia Lane paper is so beautiful, so romantic, so dreamy, so ... everything that it overcame my determination to acquire no more DSP. When it becomes available with the launch of the 2019 Annual Catalogue in early June, you'll be unable to resist it either!

The close-up photo shows off the textured, almost-linen look of the paper as well as the use of the Subtle embossing folder for the card front.

Good Morning Magnolia stamps, Magnolia Memory dies,Magnolia Lane DSP and Mossy Meadow twine will be available in the new Annual Catalogue, out early June. If you live in New Zealand and don't have a demonstrator, I'd love to be yours. Message me to organise a catalogue.

Here's a look at the rest of the supplies I used. Click on the image to go to my on-line store if you'd like some of them for yourself, or you can message me by leaving a comment or going to my facebook page, linked in the sidebar of this blog.

Product List
Note: The Magnolia Lane suite will be available 4 June - is it on your wish list yet?


  1. This is lovely, Jan....a perfect combination of colors, florals and leaves! Your coloring is divine! Thanks for sharing this with us this week at the Paper Players! Seeing your cards in the gallery always makes me smile!

  2. I really like your take on this sketch, and the color scheme is beautiful! I like that the leaves and matching twine are a little bit darker, adding the perfect contrast with the card base! Beautiful!

    1. Thank you, Carol. It was a lovely sketch to play with.

  4. Beautiful Jan; I love the look of that DSP with the subtle embossing and your coloured flower provides a great focal point to bring the whole design together. Gorgeous! Thanks for playing with us over at The Paper Players this week!
