Pals Paper Arts 207

Posted on

Come on, you know what I’m going to say! I say it every week at this time! It’s FRIDAY!!!! Woo hoo! I really do love a Friday! I had a busy day at work yesterday. I had to go to one of our other buildings and fix the TV’s that play the loop. When that became my job I’ll never know. After that I had to walk around the building and create a map. Do you know how hard it is to create a map of a building that has about 100 rooms in it and no starting point?! It’s not easy I’ll tell you! After work I took a ride with my friend Sandy to her Up-Lines for a meeting. She had some new Catalog stuff, we went over the current promotions and made a card. When I got home at 10:00 last night I had to make today’s card, it was just dying to get out of my head! LOL!

Speaking of today’s card it’s for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. First I want to thank the wonderful Pals for selecting my card as one of the top picks for last week’s color challenge! You can see the winner’s post HERE and my original post HERE. Now for this week’s color challenge…

PPA 207

Another patriotic combo! I see that they have Midnight Muse in there so I thought I would dust it off, it is definitely one of my favorite blues! The card base is Real Red Card Stock. I used a piece of Whisper White for my background and stamped one of the paint strokes from the Work of Art Stamp Set in Real Red. The greeting is from the Geometrical Stamp Set and is stamped in Midnight Muse. My two larger stars are cut out with the Stars Framelits from a piece of Midnight Muse and Silver Foil Sheet. I punched three more stars out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack from Silver Foil Sheet and adhered all of them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Another simple card but I love the way the paint stroke make it look like a shooting star! There is my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. I’m happy that I let it escape last night! LOL! Thank you so very much for stopping by the blog today. I hope that you all have an awesome Friday! 🙂

    Love the brightness of the colors and the added silver stars! Just ordered star framelits and stamp set last night! The ” shooting star” design is great for graduation or a card of encouragement. I hope you don’t mind if I case this card and tag your name with it, of course!
    Enjoy your weekend!

    Awesome card. Your star is shooting this one out of the park. One to be Cased repeatedly this summer. Have a quick Friday so that the weekend can be here to enjoy. Good Friday the 13th!

  5. Another winner of a card, Justin! I love the whole booming fireworks feel of this one! Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

  6. Love this one, Justin! Now I’m rethinking getting the star framelits. We’re do you get your inspiration from?

  7. Happy best-day-of-the-week Justin! Love your card! I can’t wait for my Star framelits, they come Monday. I find cards difficult to make for the 4th of July holiday so I may have to case this one! Thank you! 😉 Another wonderful creation! Have a fabulous Friday!!

    • Indeed Karen! Happy best-day-of-the-week to you too! It’s a quick fun card, I’m glad that you enjoyed it! I hope that your Friday was amazing! 🙂

  8. This is a great card Justin! 4th of July is my favorite holiday, and I also have a hard time coming up with something special.. this is simple yet very effective. Thanks again for sharing with us daily – hope your weekend is special as well!

    • Thank you Kay! Simple can be fun! Thank you for coming by to see what I’m up to! I really appreciate it! I’m off to Manhattan tomorrow for a bit, I hope you have a lovely weekend! 🙂

  9. A great patriotic card! Love the shooting star! And it was great to see you last night, especially over dinner!

    Great card as always! The little silver stars remind me of the ones you used to get on your test papers when you did good on I think I may have dated myself?

  11. Justin,
    Great Card! I love the use of the paint splash from Work Of Art, it adds drama to the card (good Drama! lol) I am so excited about the Star Framelits! It is on the order I am placing today! I think they can be used for so many different cards…I am really thinking about using them on my Christmas Cards this year. And yes, I am already planning my Christmas cards! I do it early so that I can get the products spaced out and have everything by September.
    We actually have some sunshine today, it is playing hide and seek a lot, but it is there! No gloomy skies today!
    I too love Friday’s! I am exhausted by Thursday, from watching my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter, so I live for Fridays!
    Hope it is a good one for you!

    • Donna,
      Thank you! LOL! Good drama is the only kind I like! I too was happy to see them! I will get a lot of use out of them! I love a star! They will be great for Christmas!! It’s too early for me to think about Christmas! I will have to think about it at Convention as they are unveiling the Holiday Catalog. The sun peeked it’s head out for a few hours but it’s gone again. We are to get thunderstorms in a few hours. That is a good kind of exhausted spending time with your granddaughter. Enjoy, my daughter is 18 and I don’t know where the time went! Enjoy your evening my friend! 🙂

  12. Justin, Awesome card!! You take simple images and make such dynamic cards with them. Love the shooting star!! Thanks for sharing!

  13. What a fabulous card! I love the design, the layout, and everything about it! It’s one of my favorites! Nice job, Justin! Have a great weekend!

  14. WOW, this card is Outstanding! Thanks for sharing with us.

  15. Very cool card, loving those star framelits. Congrats on your win!

  16. Great Idea! Here in our little town, we have a fireworks raffle in June for our event Fun fest over Labor Day weekend. I am always looking for new ideas for thank you cards for the fireworks raffle givers! I think you hit it with this one!!

  17. Sherrie Gross
