PPA 134 and Sneak Peek

Posted on

Happy Wednesday everyone! Wednesday is definitely one of the better days of the week. Once we are past it we only have two days left until the weekend! I’m a little behind on my challenge cards this week, I got wrapped up in making some cards for my friend Kim on Sunday night and I got thrown off but I’ll be back on track in no time! Today’s post is for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. This weeks challenge is a color challenge…

I ‘m really liking the colors and I thought they would look great with one of the new stamp sets from the 2012-2013 Idea Book & Catalog. The stamp set is called Betsy’s Blossoms (Sneak Peek) and it has a cute spring vibe to it. I started with a base of Whisper White Card Stock and I added a piece of Crumb Cake that I ran through my Big Shot using the Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I stamped the large floral image from the set in Calypso Coral and punched it out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. I stamped it again in So Saffron and punched that out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. The bird image is stamped in Baja Breeze and cut out with Paper Snips. They are all mounted on top of each other with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then stamped the flower image in Baja Breeze, Calypso Coral and So Saffron twice each and cut them out with my Paper Snips too. They are also mounted to the card on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set and is stamped in Baja Breeze. I used the new Bitty Banners Framelits Dies (Sneak Peek) to cut it out. So there you have this weeks Pals Paper Arts card and a peek at a new stamp set and a new Framelit. I hope you like the card and thank you so much for stopping by!
