Happy Sunday, friends! Delighted you could join me for another week with The Paper Players where I am pleased to host a theme challenge:
I couldn't wait to use the sweet little apples in the Perfectly Preserved stamp set, from the Holiday Mini catalog.Selecting the colors is so easy when the designer paper--Orchard Harvest used here--leads the way! Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo and Raspberry Ripple are the perfect combination of country rustic and fresh modern. I used three different patterns of dsp for the banners--consciously selecting smaller patterns that feature one or all of the main colors.
Love the Perfectly Preserved stamp set and it's coordinating Cannery Framelits. I couldn't resist making not one, not two but three Raspberry Ripple apples!Early Espresso Core'dinations Cardstock makes it easy to create the weathered wood look of the background. After embossing with the Woodgrain embossing folder, a light rub from a sanding block reveals the light colored inner core of the paper. And that cute jar lid? Yep, that's a Framelit too! Stamped in Island Indigo, wrapped in Linen Thread and finished with some Island Indigo ruffled ribbon and secured with a Vintage Trinket safety pin.
So, what do you think? Inspired to join us? Maybe some fabulous projects from the rest of the Design Team will get you thinking Back to School!
