Sneak Peek & The Paper Players-PP76

I've been so busy with my 12 Days of Christmas and trying to get all my Christmas cards posted this month that I missed a few weeks with "The Paper Players" challenges. I'm back to play! Ann has a color challenge this time around:

The "gold" was a hard one for me. I actually have both the silver & gold cardstocks but forget to use them! I decided to create a card using the new "Stampin' Up!" goodies:

I just love our new "Framelits" and thought of actually using the largest of the "Labels Collection" to make the card background layer. All you do is keep the folded cardstock on the inside of the framelits and once your cut is completed, your fold is still there! I also chopped a little bit off the bottom to make it flat. I added a layer of "Gold Cardstock" with the next size down in the "Framelits".

The stamped images are from a new stamp set called "Tea Shoppe" and embossed with "VersaMark Ink" and "Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder". I hand-cut the tea cup and added "Gold Brads" to the centers of each flower. I also used the "Decorative Label Punch" for the sentiment.

Do you like the little doily that sits under the tea cup? That was cut with the "Paper Doily Sizzlit" which is also a new item. I only used part of it for the card. I accented the doily with 2 branches from the "Bird Punch" cut in "Gold Cardstock".

Make sure you visit The Paper Players to get lots of inspiration!
