Pals Paper Arts 195

Posted on

I had a nice Saturday and hope that you did too! I watched the munchkins in the morning for a little bit while Kim went to kickboxing. Isabella and Savannah are two of the most well behaved little girls. Izzy loves to color and play on her iPad and Savannah is content to sit in her bed and watch Frozen and bounce on her pillow. I hung out with Kim for a bit when she got back and we watched Zedd’s iTunes SXSW performance. I do love all kinds of music and his EDM (Electronic Dance Music) is great! After I went and got a much needed haircut, came home and crafted for a bit and then went over to my friend Louis’ parents house to see his sister and her two little boys. We had some pizza for dinner and I came home and started on my organization plan. A busy but great day! This morning I’m off to Manhattan for a bit, it’s supposed to be in the 30’s so I should be able to wander for a bit. 🙂

For my post today I have my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge and this time it’s a color challenge…

PPA 195

Some nice Spring colors need some butterflies don’t you think?! My card base is Whisper White Card Stock. I stamped the greeting from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set in Rose Red right on the base. A piece of Wild Wasabi is cut out with the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die and some of the bottom is trimmed off. The So Saffron hexagons in the hive are created with my Stamp-a-ma-jig and the Geometrical Stamp Set. Three tickets from the That’s the Ticket Stamp Set are stamped in Rose Red on So Saffron and punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch and a mini staple holds them together. My butterflies are stamped with one of the stamps from a Paper Pumpkin Set in Rose Red on Rose Red and punched out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. Three Basic Jewels Pearls make the bodies and Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere them to the card. A nice simple spring card, lets hope that it hurries the warmer weather along! And there it is, my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. I hope you enjoyed it and thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your Sunday! 🙂

  1. Hi Justin,
    Awesome card!!! Love the way you only used part of the hexagon hive die cut. And the honeycomb design on the butterflies is Perfect!! The tickets… the sentiment… the yellow outline hexagons…. Love it all!!!

    • Hello Gerri!
      Thank you! The colors stumped me for a bit but I can always count on the Hexagon Hive die and some butterflies, oh and I do love a ticket! 🙂

  2. What a beautiful way to welcome Spring (hopefully) later this week! The bumped up hexagons add that extra dimension for the butterflies to land on! Love my Hexagon Hive die, will have try a cut-away soon. Have a wonderful day in Manhattan!

  3. Super Duper happy day card for sure Justin. I love the way you cut the hex die to create a “hive”. I don’t have the hex stamp that came in the Paper Pumpkin but it is absolutely perfect for those butterflies on this card. In fact, everything about the card is perfect.

    Kim is lucky to have a friend to sit with the little ones so she can get out for a while. Better be nice to her or she may want to practice some of her kickboxing moves on you. LOL Enjoy your day in Manhattan, I’m sure it will be fun.

    • Yeah! Thank you Grace! I love that die and the stamp coordinates great! Love the Paper Pumpkin! Kim is a great person and a wonderful mom. She takes card of her brother too, he is Autistic. She has a lot on her plate and if I can do a little something to make her day easier I’m there! LOL! You should see her hand, she was a little angry when she went and it’s all black and blue. I wouldn’t mess with her! LOL! Enjoy your Sunday my friend! 🙂

  4. Hi Justin! Such a nice card…love the way you used the hexagon hive and cut away some of it. And who doesn’t love those butterflies? Sounds like you had a fun day yesterday…what a good friend you are! Have a great time in the city today. Hope you snap a few pictures for us! Enjoy your day!

    • Hello Karen!
      I really do like that Hexagon die and the chopping off of the piece was sort of neat! Butterflies are my mum’s favorite! I do try and make the most of the weekends, I did have a nice day. Sometimes I’m too good of a friend! LOL! The kids were great though. I have pictures, I braved the cold! LOL! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday! 🙂

  5. Hello Justin, What a happy card indeed. Here’s hoping for some Spring too but at -17C this morning…. but at least the sun is shining. You are a good friend and Kim must be happy to have you around when needed. Enjoy your Sunday in Manhattan.

    • Helo Louise!
      Thank you, I thought it was nice and Spring-like! Wow! Its still really cold up by you! It’s in the 30’s here today and really windy! Kim is a wonderful friend, I’m lucky to have her too! I’m having a nice day and hope that you are too! 🙂

  6. Love your card JK. Sounds like you are having a busy weekend. I really enjoy following you along on your trips, and really enjoy your photos! I’ve been to NY twice, but didn’t see half the things you have photographed. It is really a very simple to see NY through your eyes.. Thanks. NM

    • Thank you very much NM! I did have a busy weekend but that’s how I like them! I’m happy that you share in all of my adventures! I have been to Manhattan hundreds of times and I always find something new! 🙂

  7. Hi Justin,
    WOW! Absolutely Amazing! I love it, love everything about the card! Your creations never bore me, there’s always something that pops out! Just gorgeous!
    I actually went outside yesterday to get the mail, and boy was it beautiful. High 60’s, a little windy, but after being on the couch for 5 weeks, the air felt great!
    Well Justin, enjoyed chatting with you. Have a great rest of the evening. Take care and keep smiling! 🙂 Donna

    • Hello Donna!
      Yeah! I’m really happy that you like the card! I hope that I never bore you! It was nice yesterday here too! I’m glad to hear that you are up and about. I hope everything is going well! Thanks for stopping by, I always enjoy hearing from you! Have great week! 🙂

  8. Oh wow! Very we’ll thought out piece! Pony favourite part is the bunch of tickets–reminded me of the old vintage circus. 🙂

  9. Over the top cute!!! Absolutely love what you did with the butterflies!!! Thank you for playing with us over at Pals Paper Arts!!!
