Botanical Layers for The Paper Players 597

I used my Stampin' Rewards to buy myself a stamp set with my last order. Did you know that orders over $300 attract Stampin' Rewards: money that can be spent in the order for extra things or the Hostess products? That's why I tell my customers it's better to save up for one big order than to do two or three smaller ones. 😀

Anyway, I used mine to get Botanical Layers. It arrived this week and I'm so glad I picked it! For its first outing, I used the sketch at The Paper Players for inspiration.

In the same order came one of the soon-to-be-available Sale-a-Bration products, the Silver and Gold Specialty DSP. I've used a piece of that for the card front. This gorgeous paper is wonderful by itself but can also be coloured to make it work for any project.

To pick out the gold in the bacground, I've gold embossed the blossoms and the sentiment as well as adding a couple of tiny Brushed Brass Butterfly embellishments.

I do love foliage stamps and I think this set is going to keep me happy for some time! 😀

Product List


  1. I love the combination of the gold with the white and green - so fresh - and the vellum overlay is a great way to add a layer and interest without detracting from those botanicals. Gorgeous! Thanks for playing my sketch over at The Paper Players this week!

  2. Love the design and the beautiful elements you have used in your creation, simplicity at it's very best
