Happy Sunday, peeps! Ann is our hostess for the Paper Players today….and what a great challenge she’s come up with! I LOVE fall! It’s right behind Christmas as my favorite crafting time of the year! Although yesterday did NOT feel fallish, today is much better! A lovely almost-fall day! So let’s see what I came up with!
I just got the new Curvy Keepsake box die….and OH MY GOSH, I am having so much fun with it! These little things are all over blogland, so I am not going to give credit to any one individual, but there are lots of creative ideas out there! I chose to do two pumpkins, one a traditional orange and the other, a neutral one…not sure what those kind of pumpkins are called:
I have to say this is my favorite one! I used Natural Ivory cardstock for the pumpkin itself, stamping it with Sahara Sand using Gorgeous Grunge. I then stamped two Pear Pizzazz Flower Patch leaves with Craft White ink and diecut them with the matching Flower Fair die. I folded them in half and crimped them to give them some texture. I cut separate “stems” from Crumb Cake and just tapped them on my Sahara Sand ink pad for some “texture”. I used one of the tags from the die set and stamped the sentiment from And Many More, then tied it all up with Crochet Trim and Linen Thread.
The orange pumpkin is cut from Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip and Pear Pizzazz cardstocks, but I ran the pumpkin through the Woodgrain EF, then sponged it for some depth. The leaves are also from Flower Patch, stamped in Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive. I used another sentiment from And Many More, diecutting it with the Itty Bitty Banner die, and tying it with gold baker’s twine, letting it unravel (which it does anyway!!!).
I had a ton of fun creating these little boxes and can’t wait to fill them with some goodies! I hope you’ll stop by the Paper Players blog to see what all the designers created this week:
Thanks go out to everyone who prayed for Cassidy and sent her well wishes when she broke her wrist. Here she is with her new pink cast…I won’t see her again until Tuesday, and I imagine she’ll have it decorated with some Frozen stickers and autographs!
Enjoy your day!
