Happy Sunday, peeps! It’s time for another Paper Players challenge with this week’s clean and simple challenge hosted by Laurie! She is the QUEEN of CAS, I must say! Here’s your theme:
I have to admit, “scenes” are not my forte, especially CAS scenes! There are several really cute scenery-themed stamp sets in the SU catalogs this year, so in anticipation of that, I chose a really, really old set for my card today! Remember A Tree for All Seasons?”
My club girls were talking about this set last week and I remembered I still had it! It was one of the first hostess sets I ever earned! I stamped the fall scene on some Very Vanilla and colored it in with a sponge dauber and some markers, then die cut it out:
I used a Project Life stamp set from last year called Holiday Cheer for the gratitude sentiment, along with the leaves that I stamped on the front and inside:
The Thanksgiving sentiment is from last year’s Paper Pumpkin kit and the swirlies on the front are from an Impression Obsession autumn set called Autumn Squares (I think!). I added some striped ribbon that is currently in the catalog and some random sequins from my stash. It all is sitting atop an Early Espresso card base, which has rounded corners made with the PL corner rounder. And the layout is from CAS(e) This Sketch 141, although they’ll probably kick me out, because it’s not really that CAS!!!:
It was really fun creating this little scene with an oldie but goodie stamp set! I hope you’ll play along with the Players as well! You can check out all the samples at each of the designers’ blogs, or on the PP blog:
Earlier last week at dusk so the bees wouldn’t bother us so much, we picked apples from our apple trees, which are loaded with apples . Cassidy had her boots on and was helping Grampy:
We’ll be picking more later!!!
