PPA 276

This was a nice and easy sketch for the Pals Paper Arts challenge!  I need to get moving on Christmas cards so I made several variations of this today.  I still have a long way to go!

I started out stamping the snowflakes with Versamark and Pool Party embossing powder.  Then I did the sentiment in Versamark with white embossing powder.  I sponged Pool Party around the sentiment and a few other areas.  I then sponged with Island Indigo.  That wasn't quite dark enough to make the snowflakes pop so I grabbed what I thought was Night of Navy.  Well, I was putting it away and noticed it was a retired ink, Blue Bayou.  Oooops!  My fingers are very blue.  I finished off with the Iced Rhinestone embellishments and a basic jewel.  Please let me know what you think.

I received an ad for Tempur-Pedic and I've been looking at it on my counter.  I would love a Tempur-pedic mattress, but I'm not ready to shell out the $3500+ dollars.  I did love the cover of their mailing though.  I decided to bring it up to my craft room to try and duplicate it.  Here's what I came up with. I stamped the trees in Whisper White and Sahara Sand (one of them is stamped half and half).  I stamped dots on one and colored in the dots on one with gold and green.I punched the trees out (two were punched smaller). Then I scored two of the trees in half and popped them with dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment and then the snow from the Sheltering Tree set. It's very hard to see the gold in the photo.  All products are listed below.  Let me know what you think!

PPA 275

I made this for the Pals Paper Arts color challenge.  Such a nice combination and in perfect time for Thanksgiving.  I thought I was done with my cards but then remembered another recipient!  I'd love to know what you think.  Also, please tell me what you're doing for Thanksgiving.  I am spending it at home with my immediate family.  It will be fun and relaxing!

Alternative October 2015 Paper Pumpkin

I made this thank you as part of my gratitude challenge.  I used the October 2015 Paper Pumpkin kit. This is a great kit!!  It has a beautiful stamp set (can you tell I'm a sentiment girl?!!).  It's so versatile. I see myself using these stamps a lot.

I started with a Pool Party base, used the circle from the kit,  framed it with a Circle framelit in Crushed Curry, a panel of Calypso Coral on which I stamped the sentiment.  I tied some retired Pool Party ribbon around the circle, added a few White Perfect Accents (love them!). Thanks for looking and please take one sec to let me know what you think!

And please let me know if you want more information on Paper Pumpkin.  The kits have been amazing!!  They contain just about everything you need so they're great for beginners as well as seasoned stampers.

PPA 274

I love this combination for the Pals Paper Arts color challenge!  I thought it was perfect for a Thanksgiving card but I've finished all of mine.  I then remembered that I had a November birthday coming up so that's what I made.

I pulled out the Watercolor Wings and went to work.  I realized I only had a small piece of chocolate chip paper left, so that is on my shopping list for next time.  I do love these butterflies.  They are so versatile!  I made a few extra so that I can whip out more cards later.  Thanks for looking and letting me know what you think!  Please come over to Pals Paper Arts and join us in the challenge!  We would love to see your creations.

Thanks again...

As part of my thanks challenge, here is another using Pretty Petals designer series paper.  I love this paper.  There are so many pretty patterns.  The dotted pattern is the back side of the butterfly.  Thanks for looking!  I will be truly grateful for any comments you leave.

Thank YOU!

I'm participating in a challenge.  I need to send out 7 thank you cards over the next 7 days.  I tend to make a lot of thank yous so it should be easy!  I cracked open the Melon Mambo embossing powder (which I'm sorry to say is no longer available) and went to work.  Let me know what you think!
