Paper Players 220


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Brrrr, winter has come upon us….hopefully this chilly weather won’t last too long here in PA!  I am the hostess today for the Paper Players, and I chose one of my favorite styles of stamping:  vintage!

I just love the vintage, antique look you can achieve with some of the beautiful papers and stamps on the market these days!  I have tons of vintage digital images, too, but this week I decided to focus on some beautiful papers I got recently from Graphic 45 called Botanical Tea:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players 220 Thinking of You Vintage

Not a lot of stamping here, just a few layered embellishments and a pretty row of organdy roses, retired from SU.  I made a multi-layered flower with the Boho Blossom punch, and added some leaves from My Favorite Things, who also made the sentiment.  I did a little sponging and added a few glittery elements as well!  The sketch is a lovely one from Stampin’ Royalty:

I sure hope you will play along with my challenge this week and shabby something up, or stamp something with an antique image!  Check out what the other designers created:

Cassidy told me she was going to draw me a leaf!  First, she drew the outline, then began to color it in:



Not too bad!  Of course, using Grammy’s (retired) SU markers makes drawing and coloring even better!


Enjoy your day!
