Happy Christmas To All--Pals Paper Arts PPA315

August 28, 2016


Since moving, I rarely have extra time to play along with challenges.   I love the team at Pals Paper Arts!  They are so creative and inspire me weekly!  This week they have a fun color challenge.  I received a box from Stampin' Up! with some new goodies featured in the holiday catalog.  This Santa die is one of my favorite new items.  Hope you enjoy this nontraditional card.





My card is created on an Old Olive card base.  I added another layer of Dabber Denim.  I used the new Detailed Santa Thinlits Dies and cut it on white card stock. The star die in this set was used to cut the  So Saffron stars for the sky.  The sentiment is from the new Greetings From Santa set.  I cut the Old Olive hat using the Santa die, too. 





The new holiday catalog from Stampin' UP! will be available on Sept.1st.  Don't forget to shop my site for all your items.  If you need a catalog, let me know!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  

Have a wonderful day!

I'd Go Batty Without You! --PP310

August 28, 2016

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The multi-talented Nance is our hostess this week.  She has an amazing sketch for all of us!  The possibilities are endless.  We can't wait to see what you create!  









My card was created using the MFT Frightful Friends stamps set and dies.  The papers are from the Trick or Treat paper pack by Carta Bella.  I created the grass using Mowed Lawn Distress ink and cut it out with the MFT dies.  I colored my vampire with Copic Markers and added goggly eyes for fun.  The sentiment is stamped on white card stock and I sponged the outside of the banner with Mowed Lawn Distress ink.  All the little bats and vampire are added with dimensionals to make them pop off the card.  Wink of Stella was added to give my little guy some shine. 



So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!

My card is created on a white card base.  The blue patterned papers are from my stash.  I loved the darker blue because it looks like a cozy winter sweater.  LOL!  The jingle bells are cut from silver foil using a Your Next Stamp border die.  I used dimensionals to adhere them.  The "merry" was cut four times using blue paper and then once with silver foil.
