I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

A Bushel and a Peck


Welcome to this week's Paper Players post. Jaydee is our hostess with an awesome sketch challenge. I know you're going to love it and I know we're going to see some creative cards in our gallery this week.

How about some Lawn Fawn cuteness! I decided I wasn't ready to give up on making Fall themed cards quite yet, so I pulled out Lawn Fawn's Thanks A Bushel set to make a thank you card using this week's sketch.

As you can see, I stayed pretty true to Jaydee's sketch for my layout. The card base is from a pack of already cut and scored cards that are wood grain embossed. (The already cut and scored part is why my card has a side fold instead of the usual top fold.)

The image is stamped with Memento tuxedo black and colored with Copics. The zig-zag circle die is Die-namics and the large banner and the small sentiment banner are Lawn Fawn dies.

The inside images are all from the same set.

You can visit the rest of the Paper Player's here. Super cuteness awaits for you!
