Hello stampers! Sunday means another Paper Players challenge, and Jaydee has a beautiful theme challenge for us all:
True to form, I have two projects to show you; my first one turned into something totally different than I had anticipated, so I started over with another one, LOL! I haven't used my Gift Bag Punch Board in ages and I thought it would be fun to make a gift bag with some DSP, glimmer paper and some diecuts:
I used some sturdy Graphic 45 paper to create the bag, then added my last piece of black glimmer paper on the front. I cut images from Very Vanilla thick cardstock using the Hometown Greetings and retired Sleigh Ride Thinlits, layering them on top of the glimmer paper:
I heat-embossed a sentiment in gold on a stitched tag, and added a gold foil star and some gold ribbon:
And here's the back view of the bag; the gold ribbon and bells complement the front image nicely, I think!
The challenge at TGIF this week is Anything But a Card, so I am entering this there as well!
My second project is a card, sort of a silly one, and I rarely do silly ones, so I feel a little silly sharing it but someone might like it! Here we go:
I used SU's Cat and Santa Hat punches to create my sassy feline, who seems to be waiting for Santa to arrive...or maybe Santa's leaving, and she kept his hat behind just for orneryness! She is looking out a wreath-embellished Small Madison Arched Window onto a snowy sky and a glittery tree
And here's Santa's hat, being twirled on her tail!!
And finally, a tongue-in-cheek sentiment:
Silly as it is, I have just the friend who will appreciate this card!! So thanks for bearing with me! And since the Stamp Ink Paper challenge this week is to use punches, I am going to enter this there as well!
SO......I hope you'll find some inspiration in Jaydee's pretty photo and will share your creation with us at the Paper Players! Meanwhile, check out what all the DT created:
Annie - on break
And here's some more holiday fun; the family went out to get their tree over the weekend:
Such a pretty tree! No snow in sight...but maybe next weekend! Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!
