PPA 135 and Sneak Peek

Posted on

Good Sunday morning to everyone. I hope that you are having nice weather and enjoying your weekend wherever you may be. I had a nice ride with the top down in the car today! It’s supposed to be nice here tomorrow too. Today’s card is for this weeks Pals Paper Arts Challenge and we have this sketch to work with…

I wanted to give you a bunch of sneak peeks with this card and I have done just that. I started with a base of Summer Starfruit* Card Stock. I cut out a piece of Midnight Muse* Card Stock, placing it in the middle, and left 1/2″ border. I used the new Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies** to cut out the piece of Comfort Café Designer Series Paper**. I also used them to cut out the stamped image from the Layered Labels Stamp Set** which I stamped in Midnight Muse*. I cut another one the same size in Summer Starfruit* and place it behind. I used the Labels Framelits Dies to cut out a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock and then ran it through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The stamped image is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Midnight Muse* and Summer Starfruit* across the top are both punched on the one edge with the Scallop Edge Border punch. For a little added texture I used the Perfect Backgrounds Texturz Plate*** on the Summer Starfruit* piece. I cut out some butterflies with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit in Midnight Muse and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them too. I hope that you enjoyed this weeks Pals Paper Arts card and thanks for dropping by. Have a great Sunday!

  1. Hi Justin! Wow! This is one gorgeous card! I love how you featured the new colors, too. I have to admit, I wasn’t really sure about Summer Starfruit and then I saw this! I really like the layered sentiment, too. Very nice work! Have a great day! 🙂
