Pals Blog Hop: Halloween & Harvest

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for October where we are celebrating an early Fall season by sharing Halloween and Autumn projects using our wonderful Stampin’ Up! supplies.  We hope you enjoy our creations!

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Jennifer Michalski's  Stamping Serenity blognumber 17 on the Pals Hop.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

I have a tip to share. As I was getting ready to make this project, I realized I didn't have any black & orange DSP (designer series paper). However, I did have some black & white DSP from the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack, which I brayered with Pumpkin Pie ink to make the paper used on this project. This technique will work with just about any ink color. Don't you just love this Go Wild DSP? The 6x6 size is so easy to work with and perfect for so many projects. 

Don't forget to do a bit of stamping on the inside of the card to pull the look together. 

The little wispy black pieces are just narrow strips of cardstock I curled with my bone folder. The matching envelope liner really completes the ensemble. Full product list below blog lineup. 

The next stop is Becky Volp's Ink Blossom blog, number 19 on the Pals Blog Hop!  Thanks for visiting; I hope to see you on next month’s Pals Hop!
