Morning Meadow for The Paper Players, CQC241 & FMS136

Greetings, Friends! This week at The Paper Players it's time for a Clean and Simple challenge, and the wonderful Ann Schach has chosen a floral theme! How appropriate for this time of year! 

I spent last week featuring some "Sneak Peeks" from the upcoming Stampin' Up 2014-2015 Annual Catalog, but this week I'd like to feature some products that will be retiring on June 4. One of them is the beautiful Morning Meadow Stamp Set, which is a hostess set. Also retiring (boo, hoo) is the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.

My color scheme and layout were inspired by the challenges at ColourQ and Freshly Made Sketches. Love them both! 

I was also inspired by Nance's badge, and tried to mimic it by heat embossing the floral image using White Embossing Powder on Pool Party Card Stock. The sentiment was embossed in Gold. 

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Morning Meadow
Card Stock: Whisper White, Pool Party, Chocolate Chip
Ink Pads: Tempting Turquoise, Versamark
Tools: Heat Tool, Itty Bitty Punch Pack
Accessories: White & Gold Embossing Powders, Gold Foil Sheets, Candy Dots

Thanks so much for visiting today, and please pay a visit to the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players! We hope you'll play along, too!
