PPA 277 - a sketch challenge

During this time of Thanksgiving celebration my thoughts turn gratefully to you with warm appreciation!

If you get a chance to squeeze a little crafting time in this week between cooking, spending time with family and shopping, we have a sketch challenge this week at Pals Paper Arts. It's a simple sketch with so many possibilities. I hope you find the time to play along with us this week.

  • For my project, I started with black and metallic gold striped paper from the Winter Wonderland Specialty DSP from the holiday catalog. It is the most beautiful paper.

  • To soften the card, I covered it with the Winter Wonderland Vellum, which is also very pretty. My remedial photography skills, do not do it justice.
  • To continue the black and gold theme, I added some Gold Cording Trim, embossed the greeting in gold onto black card stock and added some some gorgeous Gold Satin Ribbon.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and thank you for visiting!

PPA 275 - a color challenge

It's time for another color challenge at Pals Paper Arts! This week we are playing with Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist. They are such beautiful fall colors. I can't wait to see your creations!
  • I opted for clean and simple using Stampin' Up!'s Vintage Leaves stamp set. The sentiment is from the gorgeous stamp set, Butterfly Basics.

  •  The Stamp-A-Ma-Jig is a must-have for any stamper. Helps you position stamp image exactly where you want, every time. 

Thanks for stopping by!
