Magical Meadow for The Paper Players 663

One of my favourite challenges is The Paper Players so I was delighted to find some time to play in their latest challenge, a sketch - my favourite kind of challenge. 

I had the most amazing weekend recently at the Creativity Abounds Virtual Stamp Camp, which featured the Winter Meadow suite. I'm excited for the next one in early February 2024 - watch out for details.  Since Winter Meadow was still on my mind, I got it out again for this challenge.

I used the Christmas Tidings embossing folder for the background and the sentiment is from Festive & Fun.

The Deckled Rectangle dies gave a nice point of interest to the edges of the rectangles.

Product List


  1. Jan, this is beautiful! I am embarassed to admit that I haven't done a thing with this bundle, but you've inspired me with this lovely creation! The colors are just stunning! Thanks for playing with us this week!

  2. Just beautiful Jan! The embossed background adds so much texture and interest as does the 'hint' of DSP. The cluster of foliage makes a beautiful centrepiece that brings the whole thing together. The blue-toned papers in this set are some of my favourites - I love the vibrancy of the blue, especially when used sparingly as you have here. A great take on our sketch! Thanks for sharing with us over at The Paper Players this week!

  3. Jan, this is gorgeous! I love the color combo and the embossing! The cluster of foliage is so pretty, too! Such a fantastic take on our sketch! SO happy you joined us at The Paper Players this week!

  4. This is beautiful -- my favorite among all the creations I've seen using this set! Thank you for sharing.
