The Paper Players #217

Color Challenge over at The Paper Players

In addition to the challenge colors, this card features stamp set For All Things, Vellum, Encore Gols and Gold Baker's Twine.

Using the Baker's Twine to attach the vellum, solves the dilemma of  how to hide adhesive.

The card stock is Mossy Meadow.  Here is the same card in Elegant Eggplant.

OK, I'm back but not with a Thanksgiving Card.

Create a "Tag for a Bottle, Box or Bag". 
Create a project with "Bling". 
or Mash it Up! and create a "Tag with Bling".

My project is a tag for a box:

The gift box is covered with DSP Santa & Co..  I was able to spell out Christmoose with the Skinny Mini Alphabet set.  The bling of the red punched stars is achieved with Red Glimmer paper.

Pals October Blog Hop


Welcome to the October Pals Blog Hop where we are celebrating an early Halloween and Harvest season. This month we are sharing Halloween and fall projects using our wonderful Stampin’ Up! supplies.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from #13, 
Brian King at Stamp with Brian on the Pals Hop.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

My project is a place card / treat holder for Thanksgiving Day Dinner.  This is made from the French Fry Box in Blackberry Bliss.

The video below shows how my design came to be.  I didn't have time to edit, so in consideration of time, please feel free to skip it.  LOL


 The next stop is #15, Katy McGloin at Just Fun Stamping
 on the Pals Blog Hop!  Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you next month.
