The Paper Players 212

I took the dogs out for an early walk this morning and we went even further than we normally do because it is a glorious early fall morning!

When I got back to my craft room, I found that The Paper Players (follow the link) have a Fall theme challenge.

Perfect challenge for a perfect Fall day!  

I used Sahara Sand and Color me Autumn ingredients for this project.  The stamp set is For All Things.  All products are listed below.

The votives and matches idea is something I learned from Sam Donald at Pootles 

 I love to burn candles, but I don't do it in the summer because it is too hot.   I read somewhere that a burning candle can raise the temperature of a room by one degree.  Now that Fall is here, I brought out the candles and matches.

You may notice that I do not have the exclamation point on the end of the sentiment "Hello Fall"  
That's because I chopped it off!  Try as I might, I could not get the image to stamp so that the exclamation point looked like an exclamation point (and not an additional "L").  So, as I have said before, don't be afraid to alter any of your stamps to make them work for you .  
The exclamation point is gone and I am happy !


  1. What an awesome card and the match box and candles make it sweet.

  2. Love your fall card with co-ordinating accessories! Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!

  3. This paper is so beautiful. Love how you made the sentiment work for you!

  4. What a great set! Your card is beautiful, and I love the votives and matchbox. Great idea! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players.

  5. What a nice little set you've created here, Diane! Love how everything coordinates! A beautiful creation! Thanks for playing with the Players this week and sharing this with us!

  6. Wonderfull fall card Diane and I like the accessories. There's something so cozy about having candles burning on a cool fall evening. Thanks for the tip about chopping of the exclamation point, I felt the same way, so now I know what to do.

  7. Very cute! I love the matching candles and matchbook. It would make a great gift!

  8. What a fabulous set. I love the use of the DSP to cover the candles and the match box. I also love the repetition of the acorns on the top and bottom of your card. Thanks for sharing these fabulous projects with us at the Paper Players this week
