Paper Players {13}


Anything goes this week at the Paper Players--come on over and check it out!  Any paper project, any colors, any layout--whatever your crafty fingers feel like making!  For me, I am in full Halloween card making mode.  I love all the new papers and accessories for one of my favorite holidays.  Today's card features many items from the Holiday Mini catalog that are my favorites: Spider Web embossing folder, Nite Owl designer series paper, Raven black lace ribbon and look close at Glimmer Brads!  Shiny sparkly brads in all your favorite color families. 

I adapted the layout from this week's sketch challenge over Pals Paper Arts and used the Two Tags die as my focal piece.  The stamp set From the Crypt is a favorite that made a return appearance this year in the new catalog.  Here, I stamped it on my Tangerine Tango Two Tags die in Versamark and heat embossed with Black embossing powder--gives such a crisp image!  A cute bitty bat punched from vellum cardstock is the final touch on my creepy card.

And on the inside, I just repeated the same color scheme and DSP but stamped the bats from Wicked Cool on a scrap of Tangerine Tango and used the 1 3/4" Circle punch to make a batty moon!


We would love for you to play along with us this week at the Paper Players...remember anything goes!  Head on over to see what the rest of the team has come up with.  Hope to see you there!

Oh so creepy and fun! I just love that embossed spider web background and the little details you've added, like the glimmer brads and the lace ribbon. I'm already looking forward to Halloween!

Wickedly great card, lots of bits and pieces make it so special. Can a Halloween card be elegant? (yes).

Wonderful take on the sketch - love the tag - looks the a pass key/card to get into the Transylvania Hotel :) And your mom is right a Halloween card can be elegant - Dracula was royalty you know! So glad you play @PPA!

Great sketch card. I love the web emboss folder and glimmer brads, however, I haven't gotten mine yet. I'm sure we'll be seeing a LOT of Halloween treats from you too, as I know you love the holiday. Love your colors, and of course the inside.

Really cool Nance! Love how you used the Two Tags die to make the main panel for your card...I have copied your idea and will be sharing my card tomorrow.
