PPA 142

Posted on

Hey everyone how are you doing today? It’s Saturday so it must be better than yesterday! I have to get ready for my visitors from across the pond this weekend. I’m looking forward to Monday and seeing my cousin and card class too!

Today’s post is for this weeks Pals Paper Arts. This time we have a color challenge…

I wanted to use something I haven’t used before so I opted for the corn from the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set. The base of my card is Elegant Eggplant Card Stock. I used a piece of Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper and the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing tool to pierce around all four sides before I adhered it to the card with SNAIL. The FALL is stamped in Elegant Eggplant using the Lovely Letters Alphabet Stamps. I used the Finishing Touches Edgelits Dies to “pink” the top and bottom before I adhered it to a piece of Elegant Eggplant. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. The images are from the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set and are stamped once in Pumpkin Pie and a second time in Lucky Limeade. I used the Cannery Framelits Dies to cut them out and then used my Paper Snips on the Lucky Limeade ones to cut off the corn. The Lucky Limeade pieces are adhered to the Pumpkin Pie pieces with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. The words are from the Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set and are stamped in Pumpkin Pie and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies and adhered to the corn with SNAIL. I love the little extra that some paper-piercing gives the background and hope that you enjoyed the card too. Thank you for swinging by today and I hope the rest of your Saturday is a good one!
