This week is going to be chalked FULL of blogging fun over here! I hope you're ready!
Yesterday, while cruising the inter webs, I came across the Paper Players latest challenge and it was to add a recycled item to a project! Since it had been for-ever since I played along with that challenge blog, I decided to give it a whirl.
For a long time, I've loved a lot of the designs of Kleenex boxes (and was hanging on to them for a while- but then had a change of heart) and how easily they can incorporate with Stampin' Up colors. I ran out to the recycle bin in the garage and found the one I tossed a few days before and went to work.
This particular project is different for me, since I had a limited number of Kleenex box to work with. I chose an old Try Stampin on Tuesday layout and went from there. I didn't want to add a bunch of additional layers because I was dead set on the sentiment I chose, and if the paper were any bigger there'd be no point in even having any designed paper on there. I opted from layering a vanilla paper on there and just embossed on the Elegant Eggplant paper. Its dark, but makes a nice sympathy card because its not flashy and over embellished. I was pleased with it.
The little bling I did add were neutrals candy dots that I embossed in copper as well! That was an experiment that worked nicely :)
I apologize for the poor lighting. I live in Interior Alaska and our daylight is slim these days, and more grey than anything. Plus my stamping room is always dark. Its a lose-lose. Well, except I love it here, so that makes it worth it!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a stamptastic day!!
