Pals Paper Arts 182

Posted on

Yesterday was a fun day! I went to bed Thursday night at 12:30, got up at 4:15 was at work at 6:15, I told my boss around 9:15 that I wasn’t going to make the whole day. I left work at 1:00 and came home and passed out for four hours, I felt much better after my nap! LOL! I had some dinner, crafted and even watched a movie! Not a bad day after all! I’ll be going to CT later on to see Andrew and Satellite Lane solo, Kim can’t make it. I might be able to convince Danielle to come, or endure four hours of solitude in a car, I’ll let you know how that goes!!

I want to thank Ann for choosing my card as her pick for last week’s Pals Paper Arts! You can see my original Post here and the winners picks here. This week we have a fun color challenge from the Pals…

PPA 182

Today I have some more sneak peeks including some goodies from the 2014 Sale-A-Bration Catalog! The base of the card is Elegant Eggplant Card Stock. My background is the new Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die* and is cut from a piece of Very Vanilla. The greeting is from the You’re Lovely Stamp Set** and is stamped in Elegant Eggplant on Smoky Slate and cut out with the Deco Labels Framelits. The cluster of flowers is stamped in Elegant Eggplant on Smoky Slate and Very Vanilla using the Petite Petals Stamp Set* and punched out with the Petite Petals Punch*. They are all adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I absolutely love the new Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die. It cuts out enough of the color you use while still letting the background peek through, it’s awesome! I hope you’re enjoying the sneak peeks you’ve been getting! 😉 Thanks so much for taking the time out of your day to come check out my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. Here’s to a great, fun-filled weekend!

  1. Hi Justin! Oh my–best card ever!! This is such a nice card! I love everything about it and I’m adding the hexagon thinlet to my list right now! Silly me—I didn’t think I “needed” it! Love the colors, the placement of the flowers, the sentiment…wonderful card! Enjoy your venture today and hope you can talk someone else into going with you! Either way, have a great time and maybe you can talk Andrew into making another card for all of us to see?? Love the sneak peeks!

    • Good Morning Karen!
      Thanks you!! LOL! Glad I could give you some incentive to get the Hexagon Hive Thinlits! I will have a good time. I will let Andrew know that you would like another card!! Have a great day! 🙂

  2. Justin, Really cool card! When I saw that Hexagon thinlit, I didn’t look closely enough. I didn’t realize that not all the ‘hexs’ were punched out. This has a much more interesting design this way. Love your use of the flowers too! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Fantastic card Justin! The placement of the flower cluster is absolutely perfect with just the amount of each color. I really love this card. I haven’t been a fan of smoky slate but I like the way you used it in this card. Made it stand out for sure. Enjoy your day, drive carefully, I hate driving the LIE!

    • Thank you Grace! I really like Smoky Slate, more than Basic Gray! It’s almost more silver than gray. I too hate the LIE!! I hope your day is fun! 🙂

  4. WOW Justin…Everything about this card is OFF THE CHARTS!!!! The cluster of flowers just cascade beautifully down the card. Of course you’re using items that I also wanted to pre-order but didn’t. I can see I might have more orders to put in. It’s so hard not to order everything all at once. The purse strings don’t allow it sometimes. I will eventually have them in the long run. The elegant eggplant is so royal. A very beautiful card. Thank You

    • Thank you Lisa! I love the Thinlit and the flowers are just the right size. Yes, it’s very hard not to order everything at once. The new catalogs have so much great stuff! I hope that you have a lovely day! 🙂

  5. Very pretty, Justin! I’ve been wondering if the cutouts from the hive die are the same size as the hexagons on the honeycomb folder? Either way, I am getting one!

  6. Definitely a card that says WOW!!! Love it. Anyone would be thrilled to receive this beautiful card. I can’t wait to receive my order so I can play with these new punches and dies.

  7. I’ve gotta have that hive die, I can think of so many things to do with that. And the little ‘you’re lovely’ stamp? Mm-hmm, gotta have that, too. i can hardly wait for this catalog! Terrific card, Justin. You are the best!

  8. Justin, this is truly a WOW card! Wow is exactly the word that I said when I first saw this card!

  9. …and I didn’t think that I needed the Petite Petals stamp set and punch. Time to start another order!

  10. The impact of your card is stunning. I love the gray and eggplant with the vanilla. I had to go back and study what you did with the new Hive Thinlit. Wow, what an interesting cut out! I can’t wait to get it. Just when I thought I would not get any more floral designs, I can’t resist a stamp with a matching punch! You are quite the sales rep and artist. My demo met you and Brian at Convention and I am sure she will thank you. Both of you really turn my head with your creations. Have a great weekend! Nancy B

    • Thank you Nancy! I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with the colors at first. And yes, the thinlit has an interesting cutout. Now if only I made commission on all of this. LOL! Who’s your demo? I hope you had a good Saturday.

      • My demo is Barbara Becker right here in New Richmond, OH, just a couple of roads away from me. I met her when our kids were in band together and we just melded into best friends. The stamping has been icing on the cake.

      • That sounds like fun Nancy! And yes, stamping is the icing! 😉

  11. Justin , love the Smokey Slate also …it`a a softer shade of grey . And those Petite Petals are the cutest punched out . It`s a gotta have as a Bundle with the matching punch . Love your card …hope you have a traveling partner …it`s more fun ! Enjoy your weekend !

    • Thanks Sonny! I, too, am partial to Smoky Slate! The bundle is great too. My friend Danielle came with me and Andrew and his friends were fantastic. 🙂

  12. Three words, Justin: En. Ab. Ler!!!! I will have to add another item to my wish list. What a beautiful card! Thanks for sharing.

  13. over the moon amazing!

  14. Beautiful card, Justin!

  15. Love how you used the Hexagon framelits, Justin. It’s the perfect background for you card. Thanks for joining us this week at the Pals Paper Arts!

  16. WOWZERS!!!! Look who has been taking full advantage of being a SUD!!!! I adore EVERYTHING about this work of art! Thanks for the inspiration and thanks for playing with the PALS this week!

  17. This is amazing. I love the colors and the combination of the new products! Great card, Justin! Thanks for sharing with us at Pals Paper Arts this week!

  18. Hi Justin,
    Love your card! Last night at 3 am when I couldn’t sleep, I grabbed the Occasions catalog,looked at what I had pre-ordered (coming on Wed.) and planned one of my swaps for Leadership. I’m using the hive die and the Petite Petals stamp & punch along with the banners stamp and framelit. Today, I see your card- similar but different. So glad to hear that the flower fits in the hexagon. If you are going to Leadership, I’ll look for you and save you a swap.

    • Thank you Valerie! Great minds think alike! I am presenting at Leadership, I don’t know if I will have time to make swaps, but I look forward to seeing yours! 🙂

  19. I think YOU’RE lovely, too. You were also my PPA Pick for this week. M

  20. Big CONGRATULATIONS Justin. This card is just amazing. Love it. Very well deserved pick.

    P.S.: I know what your presentation is about but will it be in the general or is it a special class? Can’t figure out and I want to be sure I register for it…. LOL Have a great day. Hope not too much snow where you are.

  21. Justin, Congratulations on your WIN on PPA! You card is absolutely amazing! I love every thing about it!
