Paper Players #16 and SU Only Challenge

My latest award!

Wow, I started my substitute teaching 2 weeks ago and I am pooped out by the end of the day, so stamping has gone by the wayside for awhile. But I am glad to be back to play along with The Paper Players and SU Only Challenges and the fun Leaves #2 die I just got! I have several ideas for this die and can't wait to use the fabric I purchased awhile ago for another project to share! This card uses last year's SU fall DSP which had the beautiful browns and Night of Navy colors in it. I cut out my leaves from that DSP and used my French Foliage for the background of the squares and Thinking of You sentiment and also stamped the middle leaf with some veins from the larger this set because it seems so real! Adding the new Glitter Brights brads was fun and what you can't see is the Champaign Mist Glimmer paint that dazzles up the edges of the leaves and the squares as well. Thanks for stopping by and I would love to hear what you think! Are you enjoying the fall? Love this season sooo much! Blessings and Joy!

Tracey, this is lovely! That DSP is some of my all-time favorite--so perfect for fall. I love the leaves die and how you stamped French Foliage on the leaves--so realistic! Love the linen thread too. Thanks for joining us this week at the Paper Players!

Tracey, congrats on combining the two challenges. You rocked them both! I love that you thought outside of the box for the Paper Players sketch challenge. I also love the fact that you used unexpected colors. Fabulous job.
I bet you are pooped after teaching! I admire all teachers. :-)
Thank you for joining the Paper Players this week, look forward to seeing you join us again.
